President Joe Biden had another less than graceful walk down the Air Force One stair rail on Wednesday.
Biden, 79, appeared to momentarily lose his balance as he walked towards the presidential plane at Andrews Airforce Base en route to Illinois, footage published by the Daily Mail showed.
Despite the brief beep, the commander and chief boarded the aircraft without incident, holding the rail with his right hand as he ascended.
Biden was in Illinois to visit a farm where he blamed Russia’s invasion of Ukraine for rising global food prices. He also held a fundraiser in Chicago and met with union supporters.
The president had previously slipped and fallen while boarding the plane in separate incidents which raised the eyebrows of some who wondered if the septuagenarian president was in good health.
In November, doctors found him “fit for duty”, but noted his “gait is noticeably stiffer and less fluid” than it was in 2020, and said “significant spinal arthritis” was partly to blame.
