According to a report, on Thursday, June 1, the POTUS "bumped his head on the doorframe while exiting the helicopter but otherwise appeared spry."

The head bump didn't seem to bother the 80-year-old, as when he walked across the lawn to return home, he poked fun at his accidents.

White House communications director Ben LaBolt confirmed Biden was "fine" afterwards, while Fox News' Matt Finn offered some more assuring details.

Nonetheless, some remain worried about Biden's age as he preps to run in the 2024 presidential election.

"With regard to age, I can't even say I guess how old I am, I can't even say the number. It doesn't register with me," he noted in an April speech, acknowledging the public's concerns. "But the only thing I can say is that one of the things that people are going to find out, we’re going to see a race and they’re going to judge whether or not I have it or don’t have it."
