#1 Ford Down!

He fell so often that Chevy Chase built his career on SNL impersonating him. A world leader should have grace and style, especially in those very public moments; but sometimes mother nature aims to work against your ability to do even the simplest of things, like walk down stairs. After landing in Austria in 1975, President Gerald Ford was making his way down the stairs from the plane and, at about part of the way down, tumbled to the ground before being picked up by guards. While the incident is amusing, especially watching him stand back up as if nothing had ever happened, what makes this so funny is that it seemed to mark a long string of stumbles that earned Ford the reputation of a klutz. The guy was falling everywhere, yet nobody questioned his health as they would today.
