First Lady Jill Biden joined the president's list of handlers as she helped President Joe Biden leave the stage following his remarks on Saturday.
The event at the Human Rights Campaign National Dinner included an awkward moment following Biden's speech where his wife needed to intervene to help guide him away from the podium.

"Video shows the president being directed towards one side by his wife when he turned the opposite way and waved after his remarks," the Daily Caller reported.
"Placing one arm on her husband’s back, Jill Biden smiled and waved with her other arm as she led her husband off stage," it added.

The intervention comes after Biden nearly fell while walking up just three steps during an interview earlier this week.
"President Biden tripped on several steps Friday while making his way to a podium during a visit to Philadelphia, where he was in town to tout his economic agenda," Fox News reported.
"The president was waving at supporters at the Tioga Marine Terminal, when he walked to a stage to climb the stairs and suddenly tripped. He appeared to stumble twice before making it to the podium," it noted.
The Biden campaign is reportedly very concerned about the president making another major gaffe or experiencing a fall as he runs for reelection.
Any additional incident would only add to current concerns held by many Americans that Biden is too old to serve a second term in office.
For now, the first lady has made the latest save to help her husband exit an awkward speech ending, adding to a growing number of handlers seeking to guard Biden's every step.
