President Joe Biden was roasted on Twitter after a video went viral of him falling off of a completely stationary bicycle during a ride near his home in Delaware.
After stopping his bike and partially standing on the ground to talk with a group of people during a ride near his Rehoboth Beach home, Biden suddenly tipped over and fell to the ground.
Upon getting up, the president claimed that he was “good.”

This is not the first time Biden, who is the oldest person to ever hold the office of president in U.S. history, has fallen. Just last month, the president nearly stumbled while simply walking up the steps of Air Force One, which would have been his second time falling while trying to board the aircraft.
Biden began his presidency by falling up the stairs of Air Force One, which became a meme video within some circles on the right.
Videos circulated on social media showed 78-year-old Biden repeatedly falling while walking up the steps and holding onto the rail the entire time. Eventually, the president was able to make it up to the door of Air Force One, where he turned around and gave a salute.

Prior to taking office in January of 2021, Biden bizarrely claimed to have broken his foot by falling while playing with his dog after exiting the shower.
“What happened was I got out of the shower. I got a dog and anybody who’s been around my house knows — dropped, little pup dropped a ball in front of me. And for me to grab the ball,” he claimed during an interview with CNN. “And I’m walking through this little alleyway to get to the bedroom. And I grabbed the ball like this and he ran. And I’m joking, running after him and grab his tail. And what happened was that he slid on a throw rug. And I tripped on the rug he slid on. That’s what happened. Oh man, not a very exciting story.”
Biden explains his foot injury:

Biden’s latest fall while bike riding was met with both mockery and sympathy on social media.
“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,” wrote Donald Trump Jr.

“The most troubling part of the Biden falling off the bike video is that he wasn’t even riding when he fell. He was standing still then fell over,” said podcast host Allie Beth Stuckey.
“Why the hell would his advisors allow him to be on a bike, given how he tends to fall over while WALKING on FLAT SURFACES!?” asked political commentator Annika H. Rothstein.
“I can’t believe Putin did this,” joked digital strategist Caleb Hull, playing on the fact that the Biden administration tends to blame nearly every negative consequence of its own policies on Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“All politics aside: would you let your elderly relative who can barely walk and has perceptibly impaired mental capacity, gallivant around on a bike, potentially falling and breaking a hip? I wouldn’t,” replied attorney Harmeet K. Dhillon.
“How do they put him on a bike when he barely knows where he is?” asked political commentator David Reaboi.
“I think I’ve watched this 100 times and it gets funnier every time. You can’t fall off your bike as the President, you just can’t,” wrote Dan Katz, of Barstool Sports.
“It’s really sad. The whole thing. I’m not even going to laugh. Mock him. Or anything. The guy is close to death. He can’t even balance on a bicycle. He needs rest. Meanwhile, he’s being used as a puppet to dismantle our fossil fuel industry and collapse the economy,” responded Elijah Schaffer, host of ‘Slightly Offensive’ at The Blaze.
“The most symbolic bicycle crash in history. Stopped, no immediate danger, no threat to avoid… just a self-inflicted crash,” said T.J. Moe, of The Blaze.
“My presidency has fallen and it can’t get up,” replied Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union.
“Whoever let Biden out on a bicycle instead of a wheelchair should be charged. We’ve learned nothing from World Elder Abuse Awareness Day,” wrote political commentator Avi Yemini.
