Joe Biden Torched On Twitter After His Fall


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Twitter had a field day at the expense of President Joe Biden when he, like Humpty Dumpty, had a great fall after stopping during a bike ride.

The president was doing his morning bike ride in Delaware near his home when he parked his bike to begin to talk to supporters, when it appeared his shoe got caught on the pedal and he fell over.

He got back to his feet quickly with the help of some aides but it was fodder for Twitter users who made quips at him, led by Donald Trump Jr.

“I’m not sure there’s ever been a more perfect metaphor for the current state of our country than Biden falling off his bike while standing still for literally no reason,” he said.

“I’m just shocked they let him ride a bike without training wheels,” he said.

“We need reasonable bike legislation that bans all 2 wheeled bikes and includes holding bike manufacturers accountable for Biden’s fall today,” comedian Tim Young said.

“Poll: 27% of likely voters believe Biden did an excellent job riding his bike today,” he said.

“Biden didn’t fall off his bike like a normal person.. he had stopped and was trying to stand when he tipped over… it’s way worse,” he said.

“Political consulting tip: Do not let 80 year old man ride bike on camera while trying to convince the world he is not as unsteady or in as much decline as people say he is. That tip is free,” Mo Kelly said.

“Trump carefully stepped down a slippery ramp and the media called for the 25th Amendment. Biden has gone on incoherent rambles, fallen UP the stairs on Air Force One and just fell off his bike from a stand still. Where is the media now?!” JT Lewis said.


“80 Million people voted for a man who can’t walk and needs Training Wheels on his BIKE ? Joe Biden is not fit to run this country. He is weak and that’s why others leaders dont respect or fear him. Embarrassing Am I right or Am I Right ?” Terrance Williams said.

“Joe Biden falls off bike while cycling in Delaware The stunts they are pulling to make him seem remotely functional are going to land this man in the hospital or worse,” John Cardillo said.

Nikki Schwab who did the pool report on Saturday reported on the story.

At 8:29 a.m. the president biked by the pool, surrounded by agents.

“Good morning,” he told the pool, giving us a wave.

He’s wearing bright blue shoes and a white helmet. Also a grey t-shirt and Navy shorts .

Several members of the pool shouted “Mr. President!” at him but he breezed by before questions were asked.

Dr. Biden was not with him.

More TK

At 9:40 the president took a tumble off his bike as he stopped to say hello to the crowd. Secret Service swarmed him and he got up and then started talking to the crowd.

At 9:22 a.m. first lady Jill Biden went by on her own, also with her detail.

She’s wearing a magenta top, black pants and sporting a silver helmet.

About 30 or so beach goers caught wind of Biden’s presence and are standing near the pool.

“I’m good” from fall

“I’m good,” the president said when pool asked if he was OK after he fell, he said he had trouble taking his biking shoes out of the pedals. He had bike clips in.

He pulled a woman out of the crowd to meet Commander. He spoke with the crowd.

He answered a few questions from the pool as well.

He will speak to Xi “soon.”

“We’re in the process of doing that,” he said when asked about rethinking China tariffs.

“In Delaware I am,” he said when asked about progress on gun control.

“Did you see what they did in Delaware?” He said of an assault weapons ban.


“I am happy with progress I am ready to sign it,” he said of the Congressiknal bill.

At 9:44 a.m. he got back on the bike and sped off.

Sending better quotes in a bit.

Dr. Biden kept going so she missed her husband’s fall. He stopped and came over to the waiting crowd, tried to unclip and fell over sideways, creating a mad scramble of Secret Service and press. Observers had tried to tell Biden “Happy Father’s Day.” He stood up right away and talked to the crowd before coming closer to the press – answering the questions below. There were no visible scrapes or bruises from the spill.


Asked “are you ok?”

“Yeah yeah yeah,” he also said.

About what caused the fall: he said the “toe cages” on his bike got caught.

Asked about China tariffs, he joked with a reporter “I’m not going to talk to you on my vacation.”

About his anniversary “Thank you.”

How soon are you talking to Xi?


Have you mad up your mind about tariffs?

“We’re in the process of doing that.”

You’re lifting the tariffs?

“I’m in the process of making up my mind.”

Are you satisfied with progress on gun legislation?

“In Delaware, I am. Did you see what they did in Delaware? Passed an assaults weapons ban. They did what I did years ago. But I am happy with the progress.

“Alright guys, see you,” Biden said as he got on the bike.
