Joe Biden tripped and fell up the steps while boarding Air Force One on Friday. The 78-year-old U.S. president was climbing the steps on Air Force One when he tripped and fell three times.
He picked himself up, dusted off his pant leg and continued climbing to the top of the stairs before turning and saluting.
The incident occurred on Friday afternoon at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, where Biden was departing for Atlanta to tour the CDC and meet with members of the Asian community following the spa shootings that left eight people dead including six Asian women on Tuesday.
Biden is the oldest president to take the oath of office. There has been rampant speculation that he is in cognitive decline due to dementia.

Seven college students died when a railing they were leaning against broke, sending them plummeting to the concrete floor below.
The tragic incident happened at the Public University of El Alto in Bolivia on Tuesday.
About 100 maskless students were protesting in a packed hallway outside a lecture hall where a tense meeting was being held.
Fights broke out and some of the students were jostling each other when the railing gave way.
Seven students were pronounced dead at the scene. Five students are in critical condition at a hospital.
Disturbing video footage, captured by a bystander showed the moment before the railing broke. A dozen students fell to the concrete floor while a few students were pulled to safety.
A female student in a blue blouse dangled precariously over the edge before her fellow students grabbed her shoes and pulled her back up.
Two female students fortunately landed on the floor just below where the railing broke.
An investigation has been ordered into the accident.
Engineering standards in the United States require balconies to withstand 100 pounds per square feet of load while railings must withstand 200 pounds of force at any point along the railing.
But construction projects are not up to code in third world countries.

Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent mocked Oprah Winfrey after the 66-year-old media mogul took a nasty tumble onstage over the weekend.
The media maven was discussing the importance of balance in life at Saturday's Oprah's 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus tour when she stumbled and fell.
An aide rushed to help Oprah to her feet as she laughed off the ironic incident and blamed the misstep on her low heeled shoes
While the fall didn't injure the television guru, the response to her fall was shocking to many decent people.
Once again, misogynistic rappers led the way with inappropriate comments about a senior citizen who fell and nearly fractured her hips.
Rappers Snoop Dogg, 48, and 50 Cent, 44, poked fun at Oprah, with the "Gin & Juice" rapper tweeting: "Michael (Jackson) and Kobe (Bryant) blew a gust of wind. Balance."
Fiddy jokingly suggested Michael Jackson’s ghost tripped Oprah and made her fall.
Snoop followed that with: "God don't like ugly."
The comments come after both rappers feuded with Oprah over her decision to go "after black men" accused of sex crimes.
"I don't understand why Oprah is going after black men. No Harvey Weinstein, No Epstein, just Micheal jackson and Russell Simmons this s–t is sad," the rapper, real name Curtis James Jackson III, wrote at the time.
Oprah has since canceled the Jackson project. She also withdrew from a documentary about mogul Russel Simmons, 62, who was accused of sexually assaulting nearly a dozen women.

35-year-old Jennifer Rosoff was on her first date with a male friend when they went on the balcony of her 57th Street high rise apartment to share a cigarette.
