In an incident that brought to mind former President Gerald Ford‘s famed fall down the steps of Air Force One, President Joe Biden on Friday tripped and fell not once, not twice – but three times as he attempted to navigate the stairs leading to the famed aircraft’s door.
After he stumbled and fell the first time, Biden took a moment to gather himself before taking another crack at it — only to fall down again. And again.
White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield says the incident was “nothing more than a misstep on the stairs” and Biden is doing fine. The incident happened shortly after Biden mistakenly referred to Vice President Kamala Harris as “President Harris.”
Is Biden’s age showing?
