Woke actress Jessica Chastain stumbled as she took a few steps to the stage where she was being presented a Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Female Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries. The incident wasn’t captured on the live television transmission but was captured on several other cameras that have since gone viral on the internet. Chastain appeared to be unhurt and even made a self-deprecating reference to the fall during her acceptance speech.
“I tripped on the stairs — but I had two very handsome men helping me up so that wasn’t so bad,” she joked afterwards. There were surprisingly no gasps in the Hollywood audience when she just assumed her two rescuers’ gender identities. Chastain looked shocked to hear her name and moving uncomfortably in a dress that probably costs more than the median household income for American families.
Immediately after the tumble, Chastain’s unfortunate gaffe earned a callback to Jennifer Lawrence’s Oscar’s misstep that landed the 2013 Best Actress winner on face down on the small stairway. Speaking years later after the incident, Lawrence admitted she was hung up on the episode. She was exceptionally upset with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, who claimed she had pulled the stunt on purpose for more attention.
“I was ready for it. I was very nervous and also very superstitious. I didn’t want to acknowledge the possibility that I would win. I didn’t want to write down a speech,” Lawrence said in a podcast several years later. “I had everything in my head. I was very, very nervous but I was ready. All of the adrenaline clears out and they call my name and I’m elated and I’m in shock. And then I fell, and it erased everything from my mind. My full brain went blank. I can look back at it now fondly but for a very long time the fall thing was very sensitive.”
Of course, watching B-list buffoons take stumble around while congratulating themselves doesn’t compete with watching the man who got 81 million votes trip and fall over himself constantly. Joe Biden is a walking advertisement for medical alert bracelets. Not everyone has a Secret Service detail to pick them back up. Joe Biden was also seen in Poland tripping over himself on Air Force One again.
The New York Post noted that this latest fall abroad marked the third time the ancient president had trouble mastering the stairs. The Post wrote:
This is at least the third time the president has taken a fall while trying to board Air Force One. In March 2021, Biden stumbled twice before hitting the deck while trying to depart for Georgia. At the time, then-White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre blamed an ill-timed gust of wind for the presidential pratfall.
In May of last year, Biden appeared to briefly lose his balance as he walked up the Air Force One steps at Andrews Air Force Base en route to Illinois. On that occasion, the commander-in-chief caught himself in time to prevent a tumble and gripped the handrail tightly with his right hand as he walked to the plane.
The following month, the president staggered again while mounting the steps before flying to Los Angeles to attend the Summit of the Americas — and record an interview with “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
And don’t forget, Jimmy Kimmel’s friend was an associate of Jeffrey Epstein. The friend was arrested at Jimmy Kimmel’s house years ago. It’s all about who you’re connected to, right?
