Air Force One is the most recognizable symbol of the presidency; it exudes the power and dominance of the American president.
Emblazoned with the words “United States of America,” the American flag and the Seal of the President of the United States, it is a billboard of our economic, political and military might wherever it flies.
When Air Force One lands in a foreign country, foreigners feel a sense of awe and privilege that the most powerful man in the world has deigned to visit their country.
For the image of American hegemony not to be shattered a president must simply ascend and descend Air Force One without stumbling.
On numerous occasions Joe Biden has stumbled climbing the ramp to Air Force One, exposing himself as a feeble octogenarian who is in desperate need of a Secret Service agent to escort him when climbing stairs.
Imagine if Biden stumbles climbing down instead of climbing up Air Force One, he’ll break every bone in his body.
Air Force One is a symbol of the power of the presidency, but when Biden stumbles climbing up the ramp he is a symbol of the declining power of the world’s greatest democracy.
Biden should stop embarrassing America, resign, and walk into the sunset using a walker.
