Whoops he did it again.

President Joe Biden slipped again in front of a crowd, this time as he was climbing stairs in Philadelphia to tout his economic agenda, Fox News reported.

In what has become an all to familiar sight the president waved to his supporters at the Tioga Marine Terminal as he began to climb the stairs to reach the podium and tripped two times on what was a very short set of stairs.

Fox News reported.

Biden has had several slips, stumbles and falls while entering and exiting various facilities, including Air Force One, since taking office, leading to questions about his mental and physical capabilities. In September, he nearly stumbled while exiting the presidential airplane.

Hours earlier, it was exposed that his campaign team was making efforts to prevent Biden from taking a spill in public during the election season.

Earlier this year, the White House physician diagnosed Biden with “significant spinal arthritis.” Since then, he has had multiple tripping incidents that have many people questioning his age and whether he is fit to serve as president.

President Joe Biden has been undergoing physical therapy and has made other changes to improve his mobility and reduce his tendency to fall, according to a report in September.

Axios noted that in addition to the therapy, Biden has been wearing tennis shoes instead of dress shows for months and has been boarding Air Force One using a shorter set of stairs to avoid the embarrassing falls he is known for.

“Biden’s team is said to be determined to protect the 80-year-old president from taking yet another spill in public, which could hurt his electability after a recent poll showed that three-quarters of Americans consider him too old to serve a second term in office,” the outlet noted further.

Biden has been seeing physical therapist Drew Contreras since November 2021 to do exercises aimed at improving his balance. He’s been doing them most mornings on the advice of his personal physician, who described them as “proprioceptive maintenance maneuvers” in the president’s health summary released in February, the outlet noted further.

The New York Post noted further:

The commander-in-chief’s balance issues — likely related to what his doctor diagnosed as arthritis in his spine and foot — have been thrown into sharp relief after several alarming stumbles.

Biden tripped over a sandbag and fell after delivering the commencement speech at the US Air Force Academy in June.

Since that incident, Biden has been more frequently sporting athletic footwear, as opposed to more slippery dress shoes. The president also has taken to using a shorter flight of stairs on Air Force One, after several awkward stumbling mishaps on his way to the higher flight deck.

Biden tripped three times and then fell to his knees in March 2021 while attempting to climb the longer staircase to Air Force One. It happened again in February of this year as Biden lost his footing while ascending the stairway as he was leaving Poland.

“But even the shorter, 14-step staircase has proven to be a challenge for Biden, who was seen stumbling and bracing himself before flying out of Helsinki, Finland, in July,” The Post added.

In July, POLITICO noted, in a story headlined, “Biden downplays age talk — but subtle accommodations are being made,” the bizarre appearance of Biden, who had stepped off Marine One wearing tennis shoes without socks.

“The informality of the president’s wardrobe distracted from something else — something reporters who travel with him have been noticing for some time,” the outlet reported. “Biden boarded using the shorter set of retractable stairs that fold into the belly of the plane. The routine began a few months ago, the president increasingly avoiding the grander, more traditional doorway near the front of the aircraft on the main passenger level, higher above the tarmac.”
