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.
