DONALD TRUMP Jr has mocked Joe Biden after he fell three times while boarding Air Force One.
In a video shared to social media by the son of the former present, several clips of Trump playing golf are shown interspersed with footage of Biden falling.
Additionally, a selection of pretend golf balls have also been added to the footage, suggesting somehow Trump was behind the fall. As conspiracy theories go, it’s up there with QAnon.
Trump Jr captioned the post: “It wasn’t the wind folks.”
"I’m sorry, I had no idea I was spreading this kind of gross disinformation."

The caption is reference to the remarks of White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, who argued it was “pretty windy outside” when Biden fell.
The president tripped while climbing the stairs to board the plane on Friday.
He was heading to Atlanta, Georgia, from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland when the stumble occurred.
Despite the fall, the Irish-American Democrat recovered to salute the military officers who greeted him.
The White House principal deputy press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, later confirmed Biden was “doing 100 per cent fine” following the fall.
Not that many Americans appear to care about Biden’s stumble, particularly after he made good on his pledge of delivering 100 million vaccine doses in his first 100 days in office, 43 days ahead of schedule.
As actor and Biden supporter Jeffrey Wright put it on Twitter: “I don’t care if Joe Biden trips on the Air Force One stairs stone drunk after an all-nighter, so long as he keeps pounding Covid with this vaccine rollout.”
Former US President Trump has yet to comment on the incident.
