According to CNN, President Joe Biden had a bad slip-and-fall as he entered the stage at the U.S. Air Force Academy graduation ceremony in Colorado Springs, CO.

Ben Labolt, director of communications for the White House, tweeted, "He's OK. He was shaking hands and there was a sandbag on the stage.

The president seemed to land on his right hip before two Secret Service agents and an Air Force official helped him stand up. He was able to return unaided to his seat.


The president, according to CNN, "seemed to be in fine spirits."

According to CNN, the graduation ceremony for 2023 lasted almost five hours, at which time Biden shook hands with about 900 grads.

Biden spoke at the graduation and touched on the climate change, China, and the Ukraine War.
