 Book: The skinny on Biden dipping
By: Kendall Breitman
August 1, 2014 09:22 AM EDT

A new book is baring all on Vice President Joe Biden’s love for stripping down in the pool.

In “The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal Hidden Lives of the Presidents,” written by former Wall Street Journal reporter Ronald Kessler, readers get a look inside the private lives of politicians, told by the Secret Service agents assigned to protect them.

“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 wrote, according to the New York Daily News.



Female Secret Service agents found his skinny dipping to be “offensive.”

This is Kessler’s 20th non-fiction book. For “The First Family Detail” Kessler interviewed unnamed Secret Service agents about their experiences with some of the nation’s most powerful people.

“The First Family Detail” describes the vice president’s desire to be seen as a “regular Joe,” but says that agents find that “being assigned to his detail is considered the second worst assignment in the Secret Service.”



According to agents, Hillary Clinton takes the number one spot.

“The First Family Detail” will be released on August 5.

I would think that the male SS agents would be equally 'offended'...

Meh - the Japanese have a proverb: "Nudity is often seen and rarely noticed." While Slow Joe is not exactly a model, neither are most of us.

He is, however, dangerous to his detail. Back when he were in Ukraine for his little useless visit, he decided to go for a walk. In a bleep war zone. I know this because some people I trained and/or worked with were providing perimeter cover at the time (unannounced visit, so friends chip in, right?). To say that their words about him are unkind is such a massive understatement it should collapse the entire universe back into a singularity.

Oddly enough - John Effing Kerry is quite liked by his detail. He treats them as both professionals and people. GHWB is actually loved by his detail. He knows them all well, remembers everything, and cares fiercely about them.

Joe Biden spent more than a million dollars flying to his home in Wilmington - and $12,406 to play golf with Obama, claims shocking new book
* Biden reportedly travels to his home in Wilmington, Delaware, every weekend, according to Ron Kessler's new book, The First Family Detail

* Sometimes Biden makes same day trips from D.C to Wilmington and back again to pick up his wife, Kessler says

* He also wastes money coming back to from Wilmington on the weekend to play golf with Obama and then going back to Wilmington again
One such trip cost a reported $12,406

Vice President Joe Biden has spent more than a million dollars of taxpayers' money taking weekend and day trips to his home in Wilmington, Delaware, according a new book.

Dubbed the 'Wilmington Shuttle' by Secret Service agents and Air Force on the Vice President's service, a new book by New York Times bestselling author Ron Kessler alleges that Biden once made a same-day trip to and from Wilmington so he could play golf with the president.

The recorded cost of that trip alone was $12,406, Kessler writes in a chapter of his not-yet-released book The First Family Detail.

In The First Family Detail, Kessler, an award winning investigative journalist, dishes on several of Biden's dirty little secrets, including his affinity for skinny dipping and for taking private trips on his taxpayer funded helicopter and plane 'as if taking a taxi.'

Kessler claims a Secret Service agent told him that every Friday Biden takes the Marine Two helicopter to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, where he boards Air Force Two and flies home to Delaware. He then retraces his steps and goes back to Washington, D.C. at the end of the weekend.

'The cost of the flights is doubled because after dropping him off in Delaware or picking him up at Andrews, the Air Force has to fly the plane empty,' Kessler explains.

Biden frequently makes same-day trips on the plane as well, a Secret Service agent reportedly told Kessler.

' "The Air Force Two guys pull their hair out over this," ' Kessler quotes the agent as having said.

One such same-day trip allegedly took place on Friday, February 8, 2013.

Biden's official public schedule has him receiving the presidential daily briefing  with President Barack Obama at 10:30 a.m.and having lunch with Obama at 1 p.m. There's nothing else on his schedule after that and no news reports documenting any public appearances from that day, suggesting that Biden may very well have been in Wilmington at some point.

Because Biden has to be on the flight for the Air Force to pay for it, he will sometimes make the trip from Washington to Wilmington just to pick up his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, and take her back to D.C. with him, a Secret Service agent told Kessler.

Biden also schedules one-off events in Arizona so he can take taxpayer funded trips to The Grand Canyon State to play golf with his family, the agent claimed.

Kessler says the Secret Service agent told him Biden's most eyebrow raising waste of government resources is when he travels to Wilmington then jets back to Andrews the next morning to play a five-hour golf with Obama.

' "Every three of four weeks when it's warm, Biden gets up there on Saturday and then will fly back on Air Force Two," Kessler claims the agent told him. ' "While Air Force Two is sitting on the tarmac at Andrews, he goes and plays golf with the president at Andrew Air Force Base, gets back on the plane, and flies back to Delaware.

' "Let me tell you something, that is egregious," ' he said. ...

Well, Joe used to take the train back and forth before he became V.P.

Many of the conductors working from New York to D.C. knew him on their trains.

But I guess the Secret Service put the kibosh on the train travel when he got the Veep position...

If old Joe didn't want to live with the "sacrifices" needed to take the job, he could have turned it down. There's no excuse for spending that much money for trivialities. But then his boss is just as bad - how much did we spend to give his dog a separate trip to Martha's Vineyard last year?

Skinny Dipping Biden: Female Secret Service Agents Hate Being Assigned to Biden, But Hillary is Worse
 
Posted on August 1, 2014


skinny bidenEditor’s Note: Second worst to Hillary, the female secret service agents don’t dig Joe Biden and his skinny dipping shenanigans. Check out why Hillary is the worst of them all…

A new book claims that Vice-President Joe Biden upsets female Secret Service agents by swimming naked wherever he goes.

The book The First Family Detail by best-selling author Robert Kessler purports to tell the behind the scenes secrets of the two most powerful offices in the world as seen by their protection details.

Vice-President Biden, claims the book, is more interested in being seen as a ‘regular Joe’ than the second most powerful man in the world.

‘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,’ Mr Kessler writes. ‘Female Secret Service agents find that offensive.’

The naked swimming and the last-minute changes of schedule mean that being assigned to Mr Biden is seen as ‘the second worst assignment in the Secret Service,’ Mr Kessler writes.

The worst says the book is working for former First Lady and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
