“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.”
Psaki said, “Nothing more than a misstep on the stairs.”
From Fox News:
White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters that President Biden is so healthy, she sometimes has a hard time keeping up with him.
During the White House’s Monday press conference, Psaki was asked by a reporter about the president’s workout routine and if he is still using a Peloton stationary bicycle.
Psaki said she did not have any information to share on Biden’s “private exercise regime” but said that she sometimes has trouble keeping up with the 78-year-old president when out and about with him.

In March, Biden fell while ascending the steps of Air Force One. The White House quickly asserted that Biden was fine after the fall.
A different White House spokesperson later blamed the wind for toppling Biden as he climbed the stairs to the presidential jet.
The steps to Air Force One have proven to be a difficult obstacle for many American leaders, including President Gerald Ford, who nearly fell head-first down the steps in 1975.
