It has been four days after Vice President Joe Biden fell while attending the commencement ceremony for the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, and the incident continues to garner attention from people all around the country.
Although the president’s occasional slips and falls have become a topic that is brought up on a regular basis, this particular fall seems to have a unique staying power. Is it possible that the bizarre reason that was given for the fall, or even the general flow of events that took place during the actual commencement? Now that the attention has switched to Vice President Biden’s footwear, an intriguing rumor has surfaced about them.
Let’s get one thing straight: No one is pointing the finger of blame squarely at the president’s shoes for the mishap. In point of fact, there are people on the internet who are investigating whether or not he fell despite being given shoes that were created particularly to increase stability.
When examined more closely, the bottoms of the shoes disclose an intriguing fact. In contrast to the majority of dress shoes, which had flat soles, these footwear included rubber soles with a specific grip pattern and a horseshoe-shaped heel. It would indicate that the designer of these shoes had in mind a person who struggles with age-related balance issues when crossing high-mileage terrain, such as an individual who is 80 years old.
It has not gone unnoticed that these heels are strikingly identical to those that the late Michael Jackson wore in his early career to help him retain his balance while doing intricate dance maneuvers. It would appear, however, that while they were successful in assisting the King of Pop to defy gravity, they were not successful in assisting the President of the United States in his confrontation with a sandbag.
It’s gotten to the point where it’s almost become a pattern: Whenever Vice President Biden makes a gaffe, whether it be a misstep, a slip, or an accident, people just shrug their shoulders and accept his occasional clumsiness.
