President of the United States of America, Joe Biden, tripped and fell several times as he ascended the stairs to Air Force One on Friday.
Biden, 78, was ascending the airstairs easily and was about halfway up to the presidential jet when he slipped.
The President managed a fast rebound while hanging on to the railing with his right hand, but tripped again, this time crashing on his right knee.
Biden managed to get up, wash his left pant leg, and make his way to the top of the airstairs. He turned and saluted before boarding the plane.
He was on his way to Atlanta to speak with members of the Asian-American community, which has been rocked by a string of shootings at massage parlours.
