Flashback: Here’s CNN’s Brian Stelter playing up candidate Joe Biden ‘out there on a vigorous bike ride’

As you no doubt heard, President Joe Biden tipped over on his bike in Delaware this morning. He wasn’t hurt, but even before Republicans could pounce, liberals were bringing up President Trump walking cautiously down a ramp as proof somehow that Biden is still more vigorous that the former guy. As we reported, CNN’s Chris Cillizza did a piece at the time on “why it matters,” but brushed off Biden’s tumble with a “been there.”

As long as we’re looking back at old hot takes on Trump’s fitness, how about this 2020 clip of CNN’s Brian Stelter refuting accusations about Biden’s fitness for office from Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage by showing footage of him riding a bike: “There he is riding a bike,” Stelter said.

CNN’s Brian Stelter: “This is Joe Biden out there on a vigorous bike ride. Not wearing a helmet but definitely wearing a mask, by the way… [the right wing narrative] has been that Joe Biden is falling apart… and there he is riding a bike.”

I’m glad that we’re back to fighting about which geriatric political leader can do basic things like walk down ramps & up stairs, not fall over, etc better. It’s genuinely hilarious.

The rush to dunk on Trump in 2022 because Biden fell off his bike is ridiculous.

June 25 (UPI) — Oslo, Norway, canceled its gay pride parade and raised its terror threat to the highest level Saturday after a shooting at an LGBTQ nightclub left two people dead and 21 injured, authorities said.

The shooting took place at 1:14 a.m. Saturday at the London Pub, a second bar and a fast-food restaurant. Police arrested a suspected gunman who they believe acted alone.

Of those injured, 10 were in serious condition.

Police haven’t identified the suspected shooter, but described him as being a 42-year-old Norwegian citizen of Iranian descent, according to Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten. CNN reported he was “known to police” and had minor previous convictions.

Authorities said they seized two weapons from him upon the arrest.

Roger Berg, the head of Norway’s domestic intelligence and security service, said the shooting was being investigated as an act of “extreme Islamist terror,” according to The Washington Post.

The suspect was being held on charges of murder, attempted murder and terrorism, police official Christian Hatlo said.

The attack happened hours before the city’s planned gay pride parade. Organizers said pride events scheduled for Saturday have been canceled upon police advice.

Despite the cancellation, thousands of people joined an impromptu parade outside the nightclubs where the shooting took place. Many waved gay pride flags, while others shouted slogans of support for gay rights.
