President Joe Biden, 80, was shepherded off stage by his wife Jill on Saturday after delivering remarks at a Human Rights Campaign dinner.
Video showed the First Lady rejoining her husband and helping him exit the stage after the couple gave keynote speeches in Washington, DC.
The president turned to his right side, waving to the audience, before Jill touched his arm and led him in the opposite direction.
‘Extreme MAGA Republicans in Congress are trying to undo virtually every bit of progress we’ve made,’ Joe said.

‘[They are] trying to wipe out federal funding to end the HIV epidemic, strip funding for community venters for seniors, reinstate the ban on transgender troops, ban the Department of Justice from enforcing civil rights laws, ban Pride flags from flying on public land.’
While the president was speaking he was interrupted by a Pro-Palestinian activist that shouted ‘Let Gaza live’ and ‘Ceasefire now.’
When the interruption happened he paused and said ‘I don’t know who’s hollering down there, but I can’t hear you.’
Biden linked the humanitarian crisis in Gaza to different versions of hate that he said must be stopped.
‘We have to reject hate in every form,’ said the president.
‘Antisemitism, islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia they’re all connected. Hate toward one group left unanswered opens the door to more hate towards more groups more often.’
After he finished his speech, Jill came to his side on stage and helped walk her husband off.
Jill’s new role as chaperone comes after several videos showing the president having difficulty entering and exiting stages.
Before delivering remarks with the president of Brazil in September, Biden walked into a seven-foot flag at the United Nations
On September 20, the 80-year-old president gaffed with Brazil’s President, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva at the United Nations.
Before delivering his speech, Biden stumbled into a seven-foot Brazilian flag, leaving it teetering as he approached the podium.
The two leaders shared a stage to speak about their initiative to improve workers’ rights in each country, but Biden walked off stage without shaking Lula da Silva’s hand.
During Lula da Silva’s speech, Biden fumbled with his headset, which he was using to hear a translated version.
Two days later, video showed the president appearing to get lost while walking off stage and asking crowd how to leave.
Following his remarks at the Global Fund Conference, he began exiting the stage before abruptly stopping in his tracks and looking around with an appearance of confusion on his face.
He then seemed to ask people on the ground how to get off stage and did a few stuttering steps.
In July, Biden tripped and fell while handing out diplomas the Air Force Academy in Colorado.

Last October, Biden appeared to get lost trying to exit the stage at a rally in Pittsburgh
He was caught on video stumbling, and hitting the floor before cadets and Secret Service members rushed to grab his arms.
The president laughed off the gaffe with reporters after and said, ‘I got sandbagged.’
Back in October of last year, Biden seemed to struggle getting off stage at a rally in Pittsburgh.
After wrapping his speech, he was seen turning toward his right to exit the stage when he stopped to talk to his team, raising his hands in question.
Shortly after, he spun around and exited the stage on his left side.
Although Biden is running a 2024 reelection campaign, polling shows 73 percent of Americans think he is too old for the job.
At 80 years-old, two-thirds of the president’s own party think he is too old.
