Another day, another close call for President Joe Biden.
While in Philadelphia on Friday for a speech touting his economic agenda, the president stumbled twice while trying to walk up the stairs onto a stage. He ended up briefly grabbing the railing for a moment after he nearly fell.

The Air Force One stairs have been a particular nemesis for the incumbent president:

As Biden seeks re-election, his team has reportedly tried to take “extra steps to prevent him from stumbling in public,” as he frequently has many instances where he falls or comes close to it.
They have even gone as far as to routinely use smaller stairs on Air Force One.
Kent Gray, who has worked for a couple of presidents, told NPR in August, “Very few people have noticed that he’s mostly using the smaller stairs.”
“But everybody’s going to notice if there’s a really bad slip and fall down the tall air-stairs.”
While many of the stumbles have involved stairs, Biden previously fell off his bicycle while riding in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, back in June 2022.

The viral bike moment led to individuals recreating it in the same spot — with it briefly being jokingly labeled a historic landmark called “Brandon Falls” in Google Maps.
