Did a video genuinely show President Joe Biden falling down Air Force One stairs while visiting Warsaw, Poland? No, that's not true: The video showed an unidentified person falling down the airplane stairs, but Lead Stories reviewed independent media footage and confirmed that this person was not the president. The clip, reshared on social media in November 2023, originally circulated in online circles in February 2023.
Joe Biden fell down the stairs again in Poland.
For f*ck sakes, can someone get this man an escalator ?

The video above originally circulated on social media following the president's landing in Poland in February 2023, and then reappeared months later.
A 10-minute livestream of the president's arrival in Poland was published on Facebook by ABC News on February 20, 2023 (archived here). At the 6:12-minute mark in the video, Biden can be seen disembarking the plane and successfully walking without issue down the boarding stairs.
Although the clip in the tweet did indeed show a person who fell down the aircraft stairs, that person was not Biden. Lead Stories was unable to determine the identity of the person who fell.
Lead Stories reached out to the White House and will update the article should we receive a response.
