President Joe Biden visited a Virginia elementary school on Monday, where masked students sat behind plexiglass framed desks to protect them from the coronavirus.
The president and first lady visited Yorktown Elementary School to highlight students returning safely to in-person learning.
During the visit, President Biden, wearing a mask, walked around the classroom asking the students what they wanted to be when they grew up.
When he returned to the front of the room, one of the plexiglass frames crashed off of one of the child’s desks.
“That was probably my fault,” Biden apologized. “I probably walked by too closely.”
