Fox News host Harris Faulkner did not mince her words when she tore into President Joe Biden after he fell on stage last Thursday at the U.S. Air Force Academy graduation.

During a segment on “Outnumbered,” Faulkner said Biden “looked like a bug” after his on-stage fall, arguing that he presented a “very vulnerable, capitulated view for an enemy.”

Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany began the segment by showing a photo of the fall. This led to the co-hosts taking turns slamming Biden and what kind of “message” that sends to the world.

“His images often summed up a presidency and I saw his yesterday of this, he tweeted it out, and it’s just this image of the Biden presidency of him being helped up in a kind of decrepit position, and it’s, you risk an image like this defining your presidency, regardless of the sandbag, but just the questions of mental acuity and more,” submitted McEnany.

Faulkner issued a similar response.

“Well, I’m just gonna say it – just before that photograph was taken, he was on the ground with his heels and the soles of his feet faced the sky and it reminded me of when he had fallen off the bike, he wasn’t clipped into the bike, but he had his feet in the clips, he wasn’t moving, he had stopped, and he tipped over and he ended up like in sort of a bug position with his heels and his hands to the- that is a very vulnerable, capitulated view to an enemy,” Faulkner said.

“And just knowing that our enemies see him like that and the soles of his feet and can’t get up on his own and that sort of thing is difficult. But having that compassion that Emily is talking about is important. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. really wants to debate this president, but he told me he was never gonna debate him. I mean, Biden can’t go do that,” Faulkner added.

WATCH:

Meanwhile, late last month, when Biden was on a visit to Hiroshima, Japan, he nearly landed face-first after tripping while descending some steps.

“A confused-looking President Biden had to be gently guided by Japanese leader Fumio Kishida on Friday — before tripping and almost falling down some stairs,” the New York Post reported.

The oldest-ever US president looked confused as first lady Jill Biden led him by the hand to meet his Japanese counterpart and his wife for a photo op in Hiroshima ahead of the Group of Seven summit there.

After shaking Kishida’s hand, Biden, 80, turned his attention to the prime minister’s 58-year-old wife, Fumio Kishida — bizarrely bending over with clenched fists, as if in a boxer’s pose, before also shaking her hand.

Kishida, 65, proceeded to direct the dignitaries to their designated positions for a photo session. Sensing Biden’s apparent confusion about where to stand, Kishida appeared to politely intervene and guide him to his designated spot. Biden shuffled slowly, appearing uncertain, while looking down at the ground, seeking clarity on his positioning, according to the video.

“We’ll figure it out,” First Lady Jill Biden quipped as her husband fumbled about while trying to figure out where he was supposed to be standing.

As for the incident with the stairs, “Footage showed him arriving late for a tour of the Itsukushima Shrine, with the other world leaders already starting their tour as Biden slowly emerged from his limo,” The Post reported. “After walking slowly toward the others, he stared intently at a set of just eight steps — but still tripped, luckily catching his footing before falling.”
