Americans are known for their humor. Joe Biden fell off his bicycle in Cape Henlopen State Park in Delaware, June. Biden lost control of his bike and fell from the stop. He appeared to have got his foot stuck in the pedal cage and then 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.

There were even reviews. People had fun with Biden.
Google Maps will fire someone. An unknown Google Maps hero marked the spot where Biden was injured in his bicycle accident with “Brandon Falls” as well as labeled it as an “Historical landmark”. I wonder how long it will take to get it removed.

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 was lost Tuesday night, when it was discovered that the Google Police had located it.
Sean Hannity recognized the historic landmark on his show noting, “People are too funny,” with his guest Rep. Troy Nehls, R-TX
Nehls then asked Buttigieg a more serious question about Joe Biden’s 25th Amendment. Nehls asked Buttigieg whether he would apply the questions that he tried to ask 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]Our adversaries take advantage of our weakness as the leader of the Free World. Mayor Pete should be asked this question 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. This is something that we all see daily. People have a little fun with things like “Brandon Falls,” but everyone sees the more serious underlying questions that Nehls was raising. We might be able to ignore the fact that Biden is absent from his schedule for just two days if things were as normal. But when that happens and his staff can’t truly explain why, then we start wondering and that’s not good. It should be possible to feel confident that at the very least, the person in charge of the office is competent. Unfortunately, we can’t and his people’s responses are insufficient.
