President Joe Biden fell off his bike and came crashing down as he took a ride near his Rehoboth Beach, Delaware vacation today. (See Video Below)
Secret Service agents quickly cleared away gawkers and helped the 79-year-old president up. “I’m good,” Biden said trying to shake it off. Biden then bent down to talk to a child who was waiting along the president’s bike route in Rehoboth Beach in what was probably a staged photo-op he botched by falling.
At 9:22 a.m. first lady Jill Biden went by on her own, also with her detail.
The little girl asked Joe what it’s like to run the country. Biden should have let Ron Klain or Susan Rice or whoever is in charge answer the question because he does not seem to be in command but he instead blurted out, “Oh it’s like any other job,” he joked. “Some parts are hard.”
He took the photo op and then got back on his bike and said, “Alright guys, see ya” and rode off.
Pool repprter Nikki Schwab said:
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.

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

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.
