Vice President Mike Pence suffered an embarrassing fall while running up the stairs while boarding Air Force Two on Tuesday morning.
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 reporters filming below.
Pence was en route to Wisconsin, where he is scheduled to attend a roundtable discussion on school choice with Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.
Traveling to Wisconsin tomorrow with @BetsyDeVosED for a roundtable on the importance of school choice in our Country. No family in America should be denied the ability to choose their child’s school because of their zip code or income.

Video of Pence’s fall was quickly mocked online, with one Twitter account joking: “So do you think we got in their head with the whole ramp thing?”
So do you think we got in their head with the whole ramp thing?

Pence trying to show how well he can run up the stairs, wearing a DT tie, only to fall on his face, is the twitter content we need right now. https://t.co/2TMzXreVHn
