WASHINGTON (WNEW) — Vice President Joe Biden reportedly likes to bare it all when he goes swimming.
In a new book by Ronald Kessler called “The First Family Detail,” unnamed Secret Service agents told the author that Biden enjoys going skinny-dipping.
“Agents 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,” Kessler writes in the book, according to excerpts obtained by the New York Daily News. “Female Secret Service agents find that offensive.”
The book also claims that the vice president puts distance between himself and vehicles carrying his physician and the 40-pound “football” that authorizes Biden to launch nuclear warheads, if necessary, because he doesn’t want his motorcade to be a hindrance to his neighbors in Delaware.
“What’s going to happen is either you’re going to have a dead vice president in Delaware or you’re going to have agents killed in Delaware because Secret Service management refused to stand up to Biden,” an anonymous Secret Service agent told Kessler, according to the Daily News.
Kessler wrote that being assigned to Biden’s detail “is considered the second-worst assignment in the Secret Service.” Hillary Clinton came in at number one, according to Kessler.
A Biden spokesperson did not respond to the Daily News regarding the book.
