What is seen cannot be unseen. Do Secret Service agents really have to endure this? Apparently so. “Unnamed sources” kind of puts the story in doubt, but I guess there’s a lot of stuff that stays off-the-record when it comes to what the Secret Service sees.
It’s the Joe Biden you didn’t know — and might not want to see.
Secret Service agents dread being assigned to protect the vice president, in part because Biden’s a big fan of skinny dipping, according to a new tell-all book.
In “The First Family Detail,” author Ronald Kessler quotes unnamed Secret Service agents dishing about the supposedly “hidden lives” of Presidents and the other important people they protect.
Biden is portrayed as being more interested in coming off as a “regular Joe” than being potentially responsible for the nation’s nuclear codes.
Not to mention he’s a guy who apparently doesn’t have a problem getting naked.
In ‘The First Family Detail,’ author Ronald Kessler quotes unnamed Secret Service agents dishing about the supposedly ‘hidden lives’ of Presidents and the other important people they protect.
“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.
“Female Secret Service agents find that offensive.”
More serious is Biden’s insistence, according to Kessler, that his official motorcade not interfere with his neighbors back in his home turf of Delaware.
That means the veep puts an uncomfortable — perhaps even dangerous — distance between himself and the vehicles carrying his physician and the 40-pound “football” that enables him, if necessary, to authorize the launching of a nuclear warhead, the book claims.

“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),” Kessler quotes an unnamed agent as saying.
