White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has finally commented on Joe Biden’s well publicized stumble while boarding Air Force One.
Psaki told reporters “He’s 100 percent fine. I don’t know if you’ve been up those steps. They’re a little tricky sometimes.”
The stairs being “tricky” is just one of several other explanations given by Biden aides.
White House communications director Kate Bedingfield called it “a misstep on the stairs.”
I know folks have seen that President Biden slipped on his way up the stairs to AF1, but I’m happy to report that he is just fine and did not even require any attention from the medical team who travels with him. Nothing more than a misstep on the stairs.

Deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters aboard the plane that “It was very windy.”
She added “I almost fell coming up the steps myself. He is doing 100 percent.”
