Joe Biden falls off bike as he rides near Delaware beach home

It’s a vicious cycle. President Biden fell off his bicycle Saturday during yet another long weekend at his Rehoboth Beach, Del. vacation home as the nation’s economy – along with his poll numbers – also continued to stumble.

The 79-year-old commander-in-klutz dropped to the ground at 9:40 am and was instantly swarmed by Secret Service agents who rushed to help him to his feet.

“I’m good, I’m good,” insisted  Biden, who said the unintentional dismount happened when his sneaker got stuck in the toe cage on the right pedal of his $599 Trek FX hybrid bike as he tried to dismount.

Biden’s wheely bad day began around 8:30 am with a leisurely ride through Cape Henlopen State Park amid a crowd of security agents.

An hour later, as wife Jill split away on her own two-wheeler, Biden cruised over to a group of about 30 curious locals who had gathered near the press pool to watch him pass by.

“Happy Father’s Day,” a woman said, as others clapped. But the crowd’s greetings turned to gasps as the president keeled over, falling on his right elbow and knee.

The White House insisted Biden was “fine” despite the mishap. “As the President said, his foot got caught on the pedal while dismounting and he is fine,” an unnamed White House official said. “No medical attention is needed. The President looks forward to spending the rest of the day with his family.”

But the incident recalled several of his past plunges. Biden has fallen up the stairs of Air Force One repeatedly during the 16 months of his presidency, most recently on June 8 as he left Washington for an interview with Jimmy Kimmel.

And in December 2020, the then-president-elect broke his foot when he tripped after taking a shower, chasing his dog Major and grabbing the pup’s tail, as he explained it. The injury forced him to wear a medical boot for weeks. Biden’s latest tumble came as his popularity continued to crumble.

The president’s approval rating stands at 39.8%, according to the RealClear Politics polling average. A huge 47% said they “strongly” disapprove of his job performance in Friday’s USA Today/Suffolk survey, with 61% disapproving overall, while 71% of respondents saying the US is “on the wrong track.”

The poll came during another woeful week for the stock market, when the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed below the 30,000 mark for the first time since January 2021. The average cost of regular unleaded gas hit its all-time high Tuesday, surging to more than $5 per gallon, and the annual US inflation rate hit a fresh 40-year high of 8.6% in May.
