As Democrats fret about their looming, massive defeat at the polls on Tuesday, they even have to worry about solidly blue districts and states. New York, of all places, might oust their Democrat governor in favor of a Republican after voting 60-38% for Joe Biden in the 2020 election. That’s seismic.
Knowing what might happen, Democrats sent in Joe Biden to speak on behalf of Hochul, and it went about as well as anyone might expect. The man that campaigned from his basement and who consistently misspeaks, gets angry, and falls down in public stayed true to form, and it gave us this moment:
Joe Biden falls off the damn stage.

As RedState wrote, what transpired was weird even by Biden standards:
I feel like I say this in every piece I write on a Biden public appearance, but I’m at a loss. Did he get scared by his own shadow? I’m only half joking because even though we can’t see the stage, it doesn’t appear there was actually anything in his way. Later he walks in the same spot without issue. He seems genuinely startled at that moment, shouting “it’s black” without any further explanation. It was weird, even by Biden’s standards.
The whole speech was weird, as Biden went on about insulin prices (which he gouged when taking office by rescinding a standing Trump executive order, only to bring back down later), promised no more oil drilling during the middle of a man-made energy crisis, and revived his “deer wearing kevlar” schtick. It’s no wonder these fools are about to be defeated in one of the biggest landslide midterm elections ever.
Not only do they have indefensible policies, they can’t even pretend to defend them anymore.
Biden’s speaking was just horrific; if you didn’t have a chance to watch the video, here is how he addressed the crowd during that walking failure:
This year with pharma lost and Americans won. We put a cap of $2,000 a year on prescription drugs for seniors, no matter what their cost 2, 10, 12, 15 – oops stepping on, it’s black anyway – No matter what the cost and some cancer drugs cost as much as that. They’re never gonna have to make more than $2,000 and we put a $35 month cap on insulin to deal with their diabetes.
How many of you people know somebody who needs insulin for their diabetes?
Or they’re paying an average of 400 bucks a month now. It costs 10 bucks to make it, 15 bucks total to package it, and they’re charging four [hundred] to eight hundred. That’s over now.
What is he even talking about? He switches back and forth between Big Pharma and insulin users that the subjects of every sentence change on a dime. Then there’s the rapid fire of numbers and figures that it’s impossible to take it seriously. He just makes stuff up.
And of course, there’s the moment when he steps in something or steps over something or just steps off something and has to narrate that too. Amazingly, as RedState observed, Biden resumed walking after that glitch without any issue in the exact same spot.
It is almost impossible to think that Biden moved the needle a nanometer with his appearance on Sunday in New York. He is a walking and talking joke.
