President Joe Biden, 78, falls not one but three times on the stairs of Air Force One on Friday morning.
Biden quickly recovered and gave a salute from the top of the steps before boarding.
Biden was departing at Joint Base Andrews en route to Atlanta, Georgia, to offer support to the Asian American community following a string of shootings at three Atlanta-area spas that left eight people dead, six of them women of Asian descent.

White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Friday blamed Joe Biden’s repeated falls on the stairs of Air Force One because “it’s pretty windy outside”.
The White House spokeswoman reportedly told reporters aboard the presidential aircraft that she also was nearly blown over by the wind. “It’s pretty windy outside. It’s very windy. I almost fell coming up the steps myself,” Jean-Pierre claimed, adding that Biden “is doing 100 percent.”
Dan Scavino, Trump’s assistant posted a SAVAGE video after Biden fell down going upstairs.

Donald Trump Jr. posted a parody video on Twitter Friday that paired clips of President Joe Biden tripping on the stairs to Air Force One edited to make it appear as though his father, former President Trump, golfing, along with the caption, “It wasn’t the wind folks” — implying that Biden’s predecessor had caused his fall.
