Reporters waiting for Biden on the South Lawn of the White House watched as the president hit his forehead while stepping out of the helicopter. While Biden did not appear to suffer any immediate injuries, he rubbed his head where it was hit as he walked across the lawn. “I got sandbagged,” the president stopped and said to reporters, apparently referring to his recent tumble that he claims was caused by a bag of sand on the stage.
