“I’m good, I’m good,” Biden insisted after being swarmed by Secret Service agents. No injuries were reported as a result of a fall.
Biden claimed that his foot got caught in a bike pedal as he tried to dismount.
The White House reiterated that Biden was fine and confirmed that he was not injured. “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.”
The bike incident was not the first time Biden has taken a tumble in public. He has stumbled on numerous occasions while ascending the stairs on Air Force one. The most recent time Biden has fallen up the stairs was June 8 while the president was departing for an interview with Jimmy Kimmel.
In December 2020, the president was in a walking boot after tripping in the shower. Biden claims he was chasing his dog, Major, and tripped after grabbing the dog’s tail. The president was then forced to wear the medical boot for several weeks in order to heal his broken foot.
Former President Trump poked fun at Biden’s tumble in a Truth Social post. The video first shows Trump hitting a golf ball before cutting to Biden, who gets hit by the ball and falls off the bike.
