* UsefulNotes/GeraldFord once fell down the stairs of Air Force One, though he was not hurt and immediately got up to shake hands with dignitaries before anyone could ask if he was okay. He would later claim it was because the stairs were wet from the rain. Although it only happened once, Ford became the butt of humor for a while and he was often depicted in media as clumsy.
