We’ve all been there. You’re trekking up the stairs and the tip of your sneaker doesn’t quite clear the top of the step and immediately halts all of your momentum. You end up tripping UP the stairs. When it happens to us, we blame a new pair of sneakers that aren’t broken in or that seventh hard seltzer that we probably didn’t need. But when the President of the United States trips up the stairs, the entire world is witness.

President Joe Biden was boarding Air Force One on Friday morning, when he fell not once, not twice, but three times. The 78-year-old Biden, who is the oldest person ever elected as POTUS, lost his footing while stepping up the red carpet stairs while boarding Air Force One at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland for a flight to Atlanta.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Biden fell because it is windy, “It’s pretty windy outside. It’s very windy. I almost fell coming up the steps myself.”

Thankfully, Biden “is doing 100 percent fine” after the spill, according to the White House.

The internet does what it does – turn everything into a meme.

There was color commentary of Biden’s fall.

Some of the best memes included Family Guy, Coffin Dance / Dancing Pallbearers featuring Vice President Kamala Harris, Oh No by Capone sampled The Shangri-Las’s song Walkin’ In The Sand, Donkey Kong, and Twitter jokes.


Donald Trump Jr. got into the action by sharing a video of former President Donald Trump taking aim with one swing of the golf club.

Some Twitter reactions recalled Biden’s comments from last September when he made fun of Trump for walking slowly down a ramp.
