President Joe Biden is the master of missteps. A presidential historian noted on President’s Day, of all occasions, that Biden is on track to become the worst leader in the country’s history. New York Times best-selling author Craig Shirley told Just the News’ podcast on Monday: “I ranked him among our five worst presidents in American history.”
The ranking was initially based on an article authored by Shirley, which was written one year after Joe Biden took office as President. Shirley has now revealed that he plans to update the ranking two years after Biden was inaugurated. “He’s actually going to become the worst president in American history,” Shirley told the program.
Biden also chose on President’s Day to travel to Ukraine and praise President Zelensky, and then travel on to Poland instead of going to the site of the train disaster in New Palestine, Ohio, where citizens have been imploring the government to help with the environmental disaster.
Former President Trump visited the site Wednesday, bringing with him thousands of bottles of water, canned food, and thousands of gallons of cleaning supplies for the citizens. Trump promised to help and to put pressure on the federal government to as well. Although not visiting the site for 3 weeks, U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is finally in Ohio today.
Biden appeared to trip and fall while he was climbing the steps to board Air Force One on Wednesday in Poland. A video of the incident went viral on Twitter and appeared to show Biden falling near the top of the staircase on the airport tarmac before catching himself. He then turned to wave before he is seen entering the aircraft. It’s unclear what might have caused Biden’s stumble on the steps.
“Biden surprised the world Monday by showing up in Kyiv, Ukraine, after a secret flight from Joint Base Andrews, through Germany, to Poland, and then a sleepless, 10-hour journey across the border to Ukraine by train. He then spent two days in Warsaw meeting with NATO leaders. One of his biggest vulnerabilities going into the 2024 presidential campaign cycle – should he run – will be his age, with Republican candidate Nikki Haley already calling for politicians older than 75 to be subject to ‘competency tests,’ the Daily Mail reported.
“Biden originally didn’t have a punishing schedule for the European trip. He was expected to leave Monday night for an afternoon meeting Tuesday with Polish President Andrzej Duda and then a Wednesday afternoon meeting with the expanded group of Bucharest Nine leaders. Instead, he left a little after 4 a.m. Sunday for a secret trip to Kyiv, so he could stand shoulder-to-shoulder alongside Ukrainian President Zelensky ahead of the February 24 one-year anniversary of the Russian invasion,” the outlet added.
Below is the video of Biden slipping on the steps:

Just the News added: “Most recently, he got backlash for choosing to go to Ukraine instead of going to East Palestine, Ohio where people are dealing with the aftermath of the train derailment, resulting in toxic chemicals affecting the community. Shirley, a former adviser to Ronald Reagan, accused Biden of trying to destroy American exceptionalism.” “Everything he does seems to be about destroying American exceptionalism, the American experiment, and the American creed,” he stated. “I’ve come to the conclusion he’s doing it on purpose.”
Biden and his team have repeatedly stated that he intends to run for re-election in 2024. But last month, things took a dramatic turn after classified documents were discovered in the garage of Biden’s Wilmington home as well as his think tank.
The U.S. Secret Service claims it does not have any visitor logs from Biden’s Delaware home, Conservative Brief notes.
Fox News host Sean Hannity suggested that members of Biden’s “inner circle” could be conspiring behind the scenes to prevent him from launching a 2024 re-election campaign. Hannity speculated that Biden’s classified document scandal could result in some Democrats persuading the president not to seek another term.
“Joe Biden has been caught mishandling classified documents yet again. For the second time this week. We are now learning that secret material from the Obama administration turned up in another private unsecured office accessed by Joe Biden during his time as a private citizen. I think it’s time for a Mar-a-Lago-style raid to happen at Joe Biden’s private residences where he’s building a wall, by the way,” Hannity began.
Hannity added: “Or maybe someone in Joe’s inner circle. Think about this. Why is this happening twice in a week? Could this be the result? Maybe someone doesn’t want Joe to run for reelection. While we absolutely don’t know that to be a fact, it’s certainly suspicious in terms of timing. But what’s good for the goose is certainly good for the gander… right Merrick Garland? Right, Chris Wray? They are the ones that personally approved of the raid at Mar a Lago and former President Trump’s home.”
