Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign trail to take the White House appears to be littered with gaffes, inappropriate physical contact and semi-coherent speeches, often making him the butt of many jokes.
Sometimes, however, his stories are just downright strange.
Such was the case with several sound bytes from the infamous “Corn Pop” gang fight tale earlier this year, when Biden spoke to a predominantly black crowd at a pool he had worked at in the 1960s.
While the “Corn Pop” speech itself was easily turned into parody videos and memes, the parts of the speech that didn’t initially make the cut in public forum were much creepier.
“By the way, you know, I sit on the stand and it’d get hot,” he said, describing his time as a lifeguard at a Wilmington, DE, public pool that was later named after him. “I got a lot of…I got hairy legs that turn blonde in the sun and the kids used to come up and reach in the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and then watch the hair come back up again.”
Biden then looked down at a group of kids and said, “I love kids jumping in my lap.”
The former VP also discussed how he learned about roaches and harkened back to his reaction to a bumper sticker he once saw.
According to the Washington Examiner, Biden is the front-runner for the Democrats in the 2020 race, and recently gained attention for inexplicably nibbling on his wife’s hand during a speech.
