President Joe Biden appeared to slip while walking down the short stairs from Air Force One on Wednesday, hours after a report came out on how his staff is trying to prevent him from falling.

Axios had just published a report earlier in the day that said Biden and his campaign staff considered it “critical” to his re-election bid that he does not trip.
Axios reported: “Why it matters: Democrats, including some in the administration, are terrified that Biden will have a bad fall — with a nightmare scenario of it happening in the weeks before the November 2024 election.”
The report also said, “some senior Democrats” are privately frustrated with Biden’s advance team “for months,” citing the sandbag incident and noting that the president often appears not to know which direction to go after he speaks at a podium. (An advance team consists of White House staffers that do preparatory work on-location before Biden visits a site).
Axios reported that Biden works out “many mornings” with physical therapist Drew Contreras, who also worked with former President Obama, on his balance, which he called “proprioceptive maintenance maneuvers.”
A professor interviewed by Axios said he has never heard that term.”
White House staffers had mocked the article after it was published and before Biden slipped again.
White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates posted on X, “Move over, tan suit,” in reference to former President Barack Obama being ridiculed for wearing a tan suit.
Move over, tan suit!
Can confirm: @POTUS is one of the millions of Americans with sneakers.
Notice that when others do the same, the media’s tone is different?

Earlier, Bates posted a photo of himself and some staffers, some who were wearing sneakers.
He slammed Axios’s report, saying it fit “an unfortunate pattern of media attempting to sensationalize something that has long been public, rather than covering the president’s very real achievements for hardworking Americans.”
However, Biden’s slip after the article may only reinforce concerns voters have about Biden’s age.
A recent AP poll showed that three-fourths of Americans see Biden as too old.
