US President Joe Biden faced another awkward moment when he was seen struggling to wear his jacket after disembarking Marine One helicopter. And when he did manage to put it on with the help of his wife First lady Jill Biden, he then ended up dropping his signature aviator sunglasses.

The video of the incident has gone viral on social media.

The video showed Biden relatively struggling with his jacket and asked Jill to step in and help get hold of the jacket’s sleeve which was blowing away in the wind caused by the chopper’s blades.

The President and the First lady were returning after meeting families affected by devastating floods in eastern Kentucky on Monday and were leaving for Air Force One.

After putting on the jacket and as Jill walked ahead of her husband, he sunglasses, balanced precariously on top of his mask, fell on the tarmac.

The president quickly scooped up the glasses before walking away.

It is noteworthy that this was his first official trip after testing positive for Covid-19.

The medical experts advised isolated in the White House for more than two weeks.

The experts said that he is fit to safely return to public engagement and presidential travel after he tested negative.

The president and first lady met with first responders and families who had lost homes after the worst flooding in the state’s history in late July.

He pledged greater financial support for disaster-stricken Kentucky, describing recent destructive flash floods in the state as "another sign of dangerous climate change."

About 38 people died in eastern Kentucky after severe storms dropped between 8 and 10.5 inches of rain over 48 hours.

It came after the state was hit by devastating tornadoes in December last year, killing 77 people.
