Democrat President Joe Biden almost created another humiliating viral video as he struggled to exit Air Force One in Michigan Tuesday.
The near-miss occurred moments after Biden touched down at the Detroit Metro Airport.
After landing, Biden was greeted on the runway by United Auto Workers president Shawn Fain, Michigan Lt. Gov. Garland Gilchrist, and US Reps. Debbie Dingell, Rashida Tlaib, and Shri Thanedar, all Michigan Democrats.
As he disembarked the jet, Biden slipped as he hobbled down the steps and was forced to grab the handrail to stop himself from tumbling to the bottom.
Despite the hair-raising moment, Biden recovered his footing and appeared unbothered by the gaffe.
Footage of the incident, however, quickly caught fire on social media.

The video was met with increased mockery as it emerged amid earlier reports that Biden has been doing balancing exercises in order to avoid more public falls.
