Joe Biden once again became a national laughingstock.
This time what happened to Biden is politically crippling.
And Joe Biden falling off his bike is a massive scandal. But not for the reason you think.
Over the weekend, Joe Biden fell off his bike while on vacation in Delaware.

Biden falling down called attention to the fact that his age and cognitive decline are why an increasing number of Democrats think he should not run for re-election.
But according to conservative commentator Stephen Miller, the real scandal was the conduct of the media.
Miller compared how the media reacted to Donald Trump slowly walking down a ramp at West Point to Joe Biden falling down.
Miller wrote on Insidesources:
“Trump’s Halting Walk Down Ramp Raises New Health Questions” shouted The New York Times headline in June 2020 after he gave a speech at West Point. The story authored by favorite Trump media foil Maggie Haberman raised questions about Trump’s own health. CNN’s Chris Cillizza wrote, “Why the Donald Trump-West Point ramp story actually matters,” citing Trump’s advanced age. “The President turned 74 on Sunday. He is the oldest person ever elected to a first term in the White House. Earlier this month, the White House released a memo on the results of Trump’s annual physical that only briefly outlined the overall picture of his health (height, weight, etc.).”
When it came to Joe Biden spilling onto the pavement in front of an adoring crowd, however, Cillizza’s only response was “Been there.” Joe Biden was at a complete stop when he fell over. Sure the culprit seems to be a stuck pedal, but maybe he had a moment of exhaustion or heat exertion. At the edge of 80, who knows?
One of the major revelations of the Trump years was exposing just how biased, partisan, and dishonest the corporate-controlled media really is.
If the members of the media were really the brave truth tellers they claimed to be during Trump’s Presidency, the press would saturate the coverage of Biden with stories probing if he is too old to be President and if his advanced age and cognitive decline explains why he runs the lightest schedule of any President in recent American history.
