In a video clip that has resurfaced from 2017, Joe Biden told an odd story and left many people queasy.
Biden described how he allowed children to play with his wet leg hair.
The clip has resurfaced recently from a 2017 speech when the former vice president was discussing his time as a lifeguard.
Biden spoke on June 26, 2017 at the Joseph R. Biden Jr. Aquatic Center dedication in Delaware.
“By the way, you know I sit on the stand and it’d get hot. I got a lot of — I got hairy legs that turn blonde in the sun,” Biden said. “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.”
“I love kids jumping on my lap,” Biden concluded.
From the Washington Examiner:
This is the second oddball moment Biden has had surface this weekend causing a stir online. He was also mocked for nibbling his wife’s finger during a campaign speech in Iowa on Saturday. Overall, Biden’s handsy moments have thrown a shadow over his campaign following accusations that he has made women uncomfortable by being too hands-on and sniffing their hair.
Biden is the front-runner in the Democratic presidential primary. He leads in most polls with a RealClearPolitics polling average of 27% support.
This can’t be real life…

Better, longer version of Biden’s cornpop, rusty razor blades & rain barrels yarn. An infinitely less disturbing tale than the hairy legs & roaches story.
