US President, Joe Biden, was caught on camera tripping three times in a row while walking up the stairs of the Presidential aircraft, Air Force One.
The 78-year-old tripped twice before falling over the third time as he ran up the stairs of the idling aircraft at Joint Base Andrews.
After recovering, Biden appeared to take a moment to dust off his knee. He finally made up his way to the top. Presidential Aircraft
Biden did not appear to injure himself, and managed to regain his composure to walk up the remainder of the staircase without any apparent injury. He then gave a salute to waiting servicemen after making it to the top of the red-carpeted staircase.

Biden is the oldest president ever to be elected President of the United States. He was repeatedly attacked by his predecessor Donald Trump, 74, as being too old for the role.
Trump branded Biden ‘Sleepy Joe’ and accused him of ‘hiding’ in his basement during last year’s campaign. Team Biden vehemently refuted those claims, and said their candidate was trying to stay safe during Covid-19. But Friday’s incident is set to further fuel speculation about Biden’s health and fitness for office. Presidential Aircraft
He has also been criticized for failing to hold a press conference since his inauguration on January 20. He will finally take questions from journalists next Thursday. Presidential Aircraft
