President Joe Biden on Friday appeared to stumble while ascending the stairs to a podium at a Philadelphia event touting his "Bidenomics" agenda.

The president has attracted scrutiny of his physical fitness for office amid a slew of on-camera stumbles, including a September instance in which he narrowly avoided slipping down the stairs of Air Force One and a June incident that saw him take a dramatic fall on stage at the Air Force Academy graduation.

In the latest instance, he appeared to stumble and nearly fall forward on one of the steps, but managed to hold on to the railing and continue to the podium.

The September stumble came shortly after reports that the president had been working with a physical therapist to avoid additional stumbles.
