While boarding Air Force One on Monday, President Joe Biden stumbled as he was trying to climb the stairs to the plane.
The stumble came after Biden spent the weekend at his Delaware home and was departing to go to back to the White House in Washington D.C.
Biden was attempting to look athletic with a hop in his step when he nearly fell flat on his face while trying to climb the stairs to the plane.

Biden’s physical and mental state have been under question in recent years as the former Vice President clearly seems to be declining in cognitive and physical abilities.
According to author, editor, writer, communications expert and former White House Press Office stenographer Mike McCormick, Biden’s mental decline is down by 50%.
The comments from McCormick came during an interview with Steve Bannon on War Room Pandemic.
“50%,” McCormick said when Bannon asked how much of a mental decline Biden has suffered. “He’s half there. There’s no way he can be in a room with President Xi alone and make any decision that is valuable for our country. No way.”
Some people including President Trump think Democrats will use the 25th Amendment to remove Biden from office.
Check out what RT.com reported:
With impeachment articles against him set to hit the House floor this week, and with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pushing for Trump’s cabinet to use the 25th Amendment to remove him from office on grounds of unfitness, Trump was defiant during a visit to the US-Mexico border in Texas on Tuesday.
“The 25th Amendment is of zero risk to me, but will come back to haunt Joe Biden and the Biden administration,” Trump told reporters. “As the expression goes, be careful what you wish for.”
As the president spoke, the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives was preparing to vote on a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence to trigger the amendment and oust Trump. If the resolution fails, the Democrats will bring articles of impeachment to the floor, accusing Trump of “incitement of insurrection,” after his supporters forced their way into the US Capitol in Washington, DC, last Wednesday.
Trump’s remarks seemingly implied that Republican lawmakers could use the same move on Joe Biden should they retake Congress in 2024. Pelosi herself sought to make the process easier back in October when she introduced a bill that would create a commission that could determine a president’s fitness for office and remove them if necessary.
During his speech on Tuesday, Trump also dismissed the latest impeachment effort against him as a “continuation of the greatest witch hunt in the history of politics.”
However, Trump also acknowledged that Biden would soon take office, and warned of the supposed consequences of rolling back his administration’s immigration restrictions. Should border controls be relaxed, Trump warned of a “tidal wave” of illegal immigration.
Trump’s speech was his first address to the public since he was banished from every major social media platform following the events on Capitol Hill. Trump did not complain at length about the ban, but declared that “free speech is under assault like never before.”
