Joe Biden is expected to make an announcement that he’s running for president any day now, but the former vice president isn’t ready for this scandal to hit the news. What he did was unthinkable.
Secret Service agents who were assigned to Biden “say that, whether at the vice president’s residence or at his home in Delaware, Biden has a habit of swimming in his pool nude. Female Secret Service agents find that offensive.”
This is according to author Ronald Kessler in his book The First Family Detail. He interviewed Secret Service agents who were assigned to Biden, and they were more than willing to offer their honest assessment of his character.
According to Kessler, an anonymous agent also said, “Biden likes to be revered as everyday Joe. But the reality is no agents want to go on his detail because Biden makes agents’ lives so tough.”
It is stunning that this didn’t get widespread coverage when the book was released in 2014, but, then again, it shouldn’t be that surprising: Mainstream news outlets protected the Obama Administration from criticism for eight years.
However, Biden isn’t escaping scrutiny any longer. He’s refused to apologize for his inappropriate contact with women. Younger candidates are cutting into his fundraising base. He treats Secret Service badly and is prone to indecency. He’s in trouble now.
