Not The Onion: Joe Biden's Skinny Dipping Offends Female Secret Service Agents

An upcoming book by a conservative claims the Vice President likes to swim naked, and that's good enough for us.

It's a story that fans of Onion Joe Biden will wish is true. And it is... maybe.

According to conservative Ronald Kessler in his upcoming book, The First Family Detail, the Vice President likes to go swimming stark-ass naked, writing, “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.”

And, notes Kessler, “Female Secret Service agents find that offensive.”

Kessler doesn't name a source for this claim, and he supposedly has a history of using anonymous sources to push outlandish stories, which would include a tell-all about the Clinton family that drew the ire of Hillary. So it's entirely possible that Kessler, the former chief Washington correspondent for that horror show of a website Newsmax, is pulling this straight out of his right-wing ass. For our part, making things up about the Vice President is in poor taste, and something that we would never, ever, do.

Also, Kessler says being assigned to Biden "is considered the second worst assignment in the Secret Service."

Nevertheless, here's how the New York Daily News handled the story.... with a (photoshop) artist's rendition of what a skinny dipping Joe Biden would look like:


Good luck getting that out of your mind.
