President Joe Biden appeared to trip coming down the stairs of Air Force One on Tuesday — just hours after Axios published a report stating that the president’s team was actively working to prevent just such an occurrence.
Biden exited the presidential plane via the short staircase — which the report suggested were being used more regularly because of Biden’s propensity for slipping — and about halfway down, he appeared to slip on a stair, catch the railing, and right himself before carefully navigating the remainder of the stairs.
The presidential wobble was caught on several cameras, providing views from multiple angles.
