They are determined to kill Biden. This man should be watching Matlock and feeding birds.

Its like watching weekend at barbies, but he is still alive.

Its not about 1 thing. Its aboit a clear pattern of different things that show Biden is clearly old as fuck.

And hey he is in decent shape for his age. But he is a walking senior moment. Not the guy equipped to run a corporation, far less the WH.

No need to sell me. Like I've said before, this fool was older when he took office than when Reagan got wheeled out of the White House by his nurse.

This is no way to run a country.

lol. This was fall was not unexpected :D

Anyone with two working brain cells has known that the "stutter" propaganda was outright false, and anyone capable of even basic insights has known that Ol' Diarrhea-Legs is senile, likely suffering from dementia or Parkinson's.

But I was laughing when I heard about this fall because I wrote this follow comment on March 31st, after Ol' Butt's-Been-Wiped was riding bikes on this same exact bike path:

[User "Driving Miss Crazy"]:
"Someone care to tell Joe his safety helmet is on backwards?
No wait, don't tell him, the look fits him perfectly"
[CherubCow]:
"Nah, it's correct.
Modern road-bike helmets have the curved/rounded part in the front and the splayed portion in the back (unless a visor is installed, though that's more for mountain-bike helmets). Looks like he's wearing the Giro Savant helmet, which is black in the front and has a white accent in the back. Last year, on this same bike route, he was wearing an old Trek helmet with a visor.

That said, in pictures of the event you can see that for a time his mirror is folded over his left wrist (dangerous; he could tangle his wrist in it) and his speedometer is pointed forward such that he can't see his own speed (so he didn't know to tighten the speedometer clamp). I'm surprised that they let him use a toe cage, since uncoordinated people tend to fall trying to get out of those once they stop. The bike chain is also very rusted and has a cable lock on the seat post, so this must be some old family-bike they leave in a Delaware garage with zero maintenance. I guess his people don't know enough to replace the chain, since it was just as rusted last year. A poorly maintained bike could easily fail on him at unexpected moments.

He's also really putting his adult diaper to the test on a bike seat."


...
Lulz. It's funny because people who aren't perceptive to these things will let "accidents" happen without knowing that they were entirely preventable.

[Nimatzo]: "lol secret service what the fuck are you guys doing?"

Exactly!!
Secret Service is supposed to *evaluate* these safety risks and *prevent* them. I knew fucking *months* ago from clips of Biden cycling that that he should *not* have been on that bike and should *not* have used those pedals. You can even see in the OP video the exact moment that his foot gets stuck in the right-side toe cage (about 0:13–0:14).

But, the Secret Service — which is supposed to be perceptive to these things — did not see any problems and let this happen.

In fairness, I cycle hundreds of miles a year using Speedplay pedals (which, to avoid these sorts of falls, require even *more* coordination than toe cages), but the Secret Service is supposed to get risk evaluations drawn up for pretty much every activity that an executive does — and that includes making sure that a bike is in working order and is safe to operate. If in his detail, I would have replaced those pedals with flat-plastics years ago.

I miss the days when our president was so fat and indolent, he never risked his life with elective physical activity whatsoever. Instead he would stuff his face full of KFC and McDonald's.

Ah ... those were the days.

They can recommend. They can insist. But it's his property and they aren't the boss of him.

He is obviously in great shape considering age, physical conditions, and decline, that he has no control over. Still, he should be pedaling a tricycle or even some 4 wheel contraption at this point.

At least get rid of the pedal clips. Like your not setting any records even with them.

[Left-Wing Dogma Bot]: "They can recommend. They can insist. But it's his property and they aren't the boss of him."

I like that this comment evades by quietly making the zero-evidence assertion that the Secret Service *did* "recommend" and "insist" but that Biden was just too cool to stop them. :D

lol. Yeah, right :D

There is zero evidence of that, which is fitting for how the left mentally recovers from things like this.

*If* the Chief Diaper-Shitter (Finally! Someone who can fill a diaper is in the White House! #DignityInTheWhiteHouse ) simply insisted that his bike keep the toe cages so that he could get that cool-factor, the Secret Service *still* would have **at least**..
• replaced the rusty and stretched chain,
• fixed the mirror,
• tightened the speedometer mount, and
• rust-busted the cassette.

Those things have still not been done after years on this bike (higher-res pics of the recent fall):

You can see the chain just as rusted in the March 2022 bike ride:

And pics from November 2020 — rusted and under-maintained even then:
http://cyclingmagazine.ca/sections/news/joe-biden-rides-in-a-presidential-peloton/

If they didn't even have the eye for a rusty chain (the most obvious sign of a neglected bike), then they *definitely* did not have the eye for toe cages. You can tell that they have a basic eye for the PPE that Ol' Dementia-Joey wears (hence why his helmet has been replaced a few times), but they don't know anything about the bike.

Next time he goes on a ride, they'll probably have a completely different bike for him. I would bet that it'll be a bike with a lower top-tube, like what Jill rides (i.e., easier for old people and casual riders to mount and dismount), and flat black pedals with no cages.

Right, right, right. You didn't say that Ol' Soggy-Poop-Shoes doesn't have to let himself be bossed around by Secret Service agents as a tacit assertion that the Secret Service would have let the former vice president make a decision which directly impacts his own safety.

Totally, totally. That "can recommend" comment wasn't a deflection and a non sequitur at all. Or, you didn't even make the comment, and if you did, it's a good thing! The Secret Service just has to let him do whatever he wants — "they aren't the boss of him" — but, murder didn't actually assert this. The Secret Service is responsible for Ol' Brown-Socks' safety if he's kept safe, but, if he falls, it's a good thing! It shows how virile Resident Dementia is! That Parkinson's shuffle keeps him slender!

Right. I am not responsible for what the voices in your head say.


"... that the Secret Service would have let the former vice president make a decision which directly impacts his own safety."

They have no choice. They are not the boss of him. He's the President. They are randos. Joe Biden could take up juggling chainsaws, free climbing, demolition derbys ... and they couldn't stop him.

Joe Biden is free to do ANYTHING in the world that he wants that wouldn't get anyone else put on a psych hold.

Joe Biden is a free man.

[/] Joe Biden is free to do ANYTHING in the world that he wants that wouldn't get anyone else put on a psych hold. [/] Joe Biden is a free man."

Good to see that the left-wing dogma bot, a satire account, is correctly portraying the immense ignorance of the left.

In reality, just because someone is president, does not mean that they get to do whatever they want whenever they want. The Secret Service does, in fact, get to control most and nearly all aspects of a president's public appearances and heavily controls anything that can affect a president's safety. This means..
• cordoning off large security areas,
• setting up layered perimeters,
• setting up counter-intel on crowds,
• placing snipers,
• placing contingency security in un-used routes and egress directions,
• setting up monitoring equipment within pre-planned destinations,
• reviewing, approving/rejecting, and altering itineraries, and, yes,
• investigating and ensuring the function of safety equipment during physical activities undertaken by a president.

This is why you will likely never see a president in open locations without warning. If a president wants to make a totally improvised move, Secret Service will *make* the president take additional precautions.

A recent example of this was Trump when he was in the hospital with COVID. He wanted to go out to the crowd spontaneously, but the Secret Service had not approved security for this move, so Trump had to meet the crowd from behind the bulletproof glass of the presidential limousine.

If you're ever in a location that *might* be visited by a president (even one that's not on the primary and expected path), the room will be flooded with security beforehand.

Whenever a president does physical activities, they put doctors on call. Whenever a president wants to do something with even a slight risk, there will be a full PPE workup. The larger the risk, the more advanced warning Secret Service must be given. This speaks to the job of the Secret Service: anticipate everything, apply the maximum amount of safety at all levels, and minimize risk.

They can and they do limit a president's freedom. A president may very well decide to go sky-diving, but the Secret Service will demand a huge financial burden for the endeavor since they will demand intel, the development of an operations plan, and backup plans on backup plans that make the sky-diving as tame as possible. Most would-be skydiver presidents would thus decline the expense for risky activities — itself a soft control of the Secret Service. That said, the Secret Service *does* like excuses to travel internationally, so this is not to say that *all* expenses are avoided.

TLDR: Lol. Left-Wing Dogma Bot is low-information, as usual.
