Vice President Mike Pence took a spill while he was climbing the stairs to board Air Force Two on Tuesday morning but appeared to be just fine, recovering and indicating that nothing was wrong.
As he reached a landing near the top of the portable staircase, Pence tripped and fell but quickly gathered himself and gave a thumbs up to observers.

Pence was en route to Wisconsin, where he is scheduled to attend a roundtable discussion on school choice with Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.
“No family in America should be denied the ability to choose their child’s school because of their zip code or income,” Pence tweeted Monday, while announcing Tuesday’s journey.
Vice president is not the first to stumble on the steps getting on or off Air Force Two. In 2018, he assisted Belinda Culberson, wife of then-Rep. John Culberson, R-Texas, who had tripped while getting off the stairs after disembarking.

It so clearly was a “tripping incident” and a “fall”.
And this is newsworthy why?
I HAVE FALLEN MANY TIMES;DARE TO SAY EVERYONE HAS FALLEN AT LEAST ONCE IN LIFE.
Nobody has been able to score more 10’s for technique and style on airplane stairs than President Ford.
Pence did not “fall” – that is a “stumble.” Different things.
