Biden's Bike Fall Gets Humorous Recognition as Lawmaker Raises Questions About Mental Capacity

You have to hand it to Americans for their humor. Someone wanted to memorialize the event of Joe Biden falling off his bike in Cape Henlopen State Park, Delaware in June. Biden fell when he pulled to a stop and appeared to get his foot caught in the pedal toe cage, and tipped over.


Someone managed to add a historic landmark briefly on Google Maps for “Brandon Falls, Lewes, DE” at or near the place that Biden fell.

It even had reviews, with people having fun with Biden.

Biden, of course, earned the nickname “Brandon” following the 2021 NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama, when an NBC reporter tried to claim that people chanting “F**k Joe Biden” were actually saying, “Let’s go, Brandon,” cheering driver Brandon Brown. “Brandon” quickly became shorthand for criticism of Biden as well as the media for constantly trying to smooth things over for him.

Unfortunately, the marker disappeared sometime Tuesday night when the Google police caught up to it.


Sean Hannity recognized the historic landmark on his show noting, “People are too funny,” with his guest Rep. Troy Nehls (R-TX).

He then raised the more serious question that Nehls had with Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg about the 25th Amendment and Joe Biden.Β Nehls asked Buttigieg to apply the questions he had tried to apply to Donald Trump to Joe Biden.

Nehls went on to tell Hannity that after 18 months in office, Biden has been “shaking hands with Casper” – in reference to the cartoon ghost – and had allowed the White House’s Easter Bunny to goad him away from reporters earlier this year.

“I thought it was a very fair question [of Buttigieg] because [Biden] is the leader of the free world and our adversaries are taking advantage of this weakness. And I thought it was a very fair question to ask Mayor Pete about the 25th [Amendment].”

During the hearing, an agitated Buttigieg shot back at Nehls, criticizing Trump in the process: “First of all, I’m glad we have a president who can ride a bicycle – and I will look beyond the insulting nature of your question.”


Nehls gave Buttigieg time to respond to his questions but Buttigieg refused, saying the questions were “ridiculous.”

But the problem, of course, is that they’re not ridiculous. We see it daily. People have a little fun with things like “Brandon Falls,” but everyone sees the more serious underlying questions that Nehls was raising. If things were normal we might not think about questioning why Biden has nothing on his public schedule for two days. But when that happens and his staff can’t truly explain why, then we start wondering and that’s not good. We should be able to have confidence that the person occupying the office has at least some basic capacity. Unfortunately, we can’t and his people’s responses are insufficient.
