At this stage, it’s not entirely unreasonable to think that a Hoveround stairlift may soon need to be added to staircases leading up to Air Force One.
President Biden almost faceplanted before the world a second time in little over a month while boarding Air Force One on Thursday — and he was ascending the shorter staircase to enter the aircraft through its belly.
The 80-year-old president was about to depart Helsinki, Finland, for Joint Base Andrews after a two-day NATO summit in Lithuania and stumbled as he climbed the 14-step staircase leading to Air Force One.

Once he reached the top, the feeble commander-in-chief turned and waved to onlookers at Helsinki-Vantaan International Airport, as if to say: “I made it!”
Here’s another angle of the near-face plant:

The irony here is that social media user Harlan Hill astutely noted on Biden’s departure from the U.S. that the use of the shorter staircase was intended to prevent another fall:
Biden now boards thru the belly of AF1 instead of risking a fall up to the primary forward door.
His decline is obvious. It’s humiliating and the media refuse to discuss it. https://t.co/inHHUcW4m3

The most infamous Biden stumble on the steps of Air Force One occurred in March 2021 when the president fell three consecutive times, crashing to his knee the third time before righting himself.
Last summer Biden fell off a bicycle near his Delaware beach home and it was just over a month ago that he tripped at the Air Force Academy graduation ceremony, going all the way to the ground and needing help to get back up — a sandbag was fingered as the culprit here.
Pull the dang plug! LIKE NOW!!

With social media users being the helpful sort that they are, there were a few suggestions offered to mitigate the risk of Biden having another embarrassing episode trying to board the presidential aircraft, as seen here:
