A newly surfaced video clip starting in 2017, Joe Biden shows tells a bizarre alleged incident in which he deftly avoided, a razor-and-chain fight with a gang leader named Corn Pop, when Biden was the only lifeguard at a predominantly black Delaware swimming pool in the summer of 1962.

Biden’s long-winded explanation of how he made Corn Pop on the rounds on social media as the former Vice-President for polishing his credentials with black voters. Biden in a speech at the 6th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala. on Sunday afternoon, told the participants that “we are in a battle for the soul of America” and the “vile hatred” can “brings out the best in us.”

But lifeguarding fairy tale was immediately called into question by the commentators with sway in the black community is Biden. The former Vice President has long claimed that he had applied in order to understand a lifeguard at the pool to better black America, and said in his 2007 book, that Corn Pop often plagued him at the pool. For example, Biden said, Corn Pop Biden mother, to distract him would offend, so people sneak in the pool.


“I learned a lot. And I’ve learned that it makes a difference,” Biden said in the year 2017, video clip, documented the ceremony, in the brown-Burton-Winchester Park, Joseph R. Biden, Jr Aquatic Center has been renamed.

“That was the springboard, and I was one of the guards, and they were not allowed-it was a 3-meter. And if you fell sideways, she landed on the shit, uh, damn cement over it,” Biden said.

Some members of the crowd laughed, apparently Biden corrected his language, as a small group of black children surrounding Biden looked forward, seemingly disinterested.

“And CornPop was a bad guy. And he ran a series of bad boys. And to show back in those days-to have changed, how things are-one of the things that you had to use, when you cap the Pomade in your hair, you had to carry a baby. And so he was on the Board and wouldn’t listen to me. I said, ‘Hey, Esther, you! From the board, or I’ll come and pull you.’ Well, he came, and he said, ‘I’m going outside.'”

Comments Biden is a reference for competitive swimmers-turned were-actress Esther Williams died in the year 2013.

“My car was mostly, these were all social housing is behind us,” said Biden more. “My car – it’s a goal on here. I parked my car in front of the goal. And he said, ‘I’ll be waiting for you. He was waiting for me with three boys, the with razor. Not a joke. There is a guy by the name of Bill Wright was the only white guy-and he has all of the swimming pools. He was a mechanic. And I said, ‘What do I do now?’ And he said,. “Come on, down here in the basement, where all of the mechanics, is where all the pool builder.’ You know the chain, there used to be a chain that went across the deep end. And he cut a six-foot length of the chain, and folded it, and he said, ” you go with, the chain, and you go to the car and say, ‘can you cut me, man, but I’m gonna wrap the chain around your head.'”

Biden continued: “I said, ‘You’re kidding.'” He said, ‘no, if you don’t, you come back.’ And he was right. So I went with the chain. And I went up to my car. And in those days, you remember the razor, you had to bang ’em on the curb, gettin’ em rusty, puttin’ em in the rain barrel, gettin’ em rusty? And I looked at him, but I was smart, then. I said, “First,” I said, ” if I tell you to get out of the Board, to get you from the Board, and I will emerge again, but I should not called to have you, Esther Williams, and I apologize for that. I apologize.’ But I didn’t know that the apology was not gonna work.”

“He said, ‘excuse me?'” Biden went. “I said, ‘I apologize, but not for you to throw out, but I apologize for what I said.’ He said, ‘OK’, closed the razor, and my heart beat again.”

The reaction to the clip was a mixture of befuddlement and skepticism.

“What’s the matter? I’m really confused, and I feel like I’m losing my mind,” wrote the journalist Yashar Ali.

However, the former Delaware NAACP President Richard Smith, Biden reiterated ‘account, said the former Vice-President,“ Stand his ground” despite the Corn Pop is aggression.

According to Biden in 2017, devotion, Delaware, democratic Rep. Blunt Rochester later, the gang leader known as “Pop Corn”, and told the participants that Biden story was “special”, because it “showed the kind of man that Joe Biden is.”

“He had no fear of the only white lifeguards here,” Rochester said. “He has never spared. And so, to me, this pool is truly representative of this man. … This pool acts as a source of inspiration for us. He was basically saying, “stay awake,” generations ago said: “stay awake.’ And this is the situation in which we are. And so, this pool is a representation of you. We love you. Thank you so much for all of your services.”

But others had their doubts.

“You Biden said that Corn Pop was carrying a razor and was gonna wait for him when he came home from work,” wrote The root’s Michael Harriott. “Now, you and I both know, I called Biden if this was true, especially the police, to go with him to the car.”

He added: “Anyway, Biden says, he wrapped and wrapped around the 6-foot-metal chain around the arm, that in a towel. Because everyone knows, there are plenty of black chains, easy to install, the “African-American community’, but not the police.”

It is “already undetectable Biden stuff,” He observed.

Biden said, in fact, convincingly and sincerely, inaccurate stories in the past. A headline in The Washington Post in the last month, for example, simply read: “As he told the campaigns for President, Joe Biden, in a moving, but wrong war-history.”

This incident involved a false claim of Biden that he had set aside security concerns to travel to Afghanistan, to a General request to pin a Silver star on an American soldier rappelled into a ravine to retrieve a dead comrade. Biden gave his “word as a Biden,” he said, “God is truth”, as he explained that the soldier Biden defended the efforts of the pin the Silver star on him.

“Except for almost every detail in the story seems to be wrong,” the Post found. “Based on interviews with more than a dozen U.S. troops, whose commanders seems to be your and Biden campaign officials, it was as if the former Vice President has confused elements of at least three current events in a story of courage, compassion, and regret that never happened.”

Biden later concerns about his obvious forgeries dismissed as irrelevant.

“This has nothing to do with the decision of whether or not you send troops to war, the decision of whether you bring someone home, so the judgment of whether you opt for a health policy,” Biden said in comments aired last month from the NPR politics Podcast and Iowa Public Radio. “The details are not relevant in relation to the decision-making process.”


Commentators have also doubted, many of Biden, the other claims. For example, The Washington free Beacon, Alex Griswold is reacted with skepticism to a Biden story, as his father had in the 1950s, responded to the site of two men kissing, by his son: “Joey, you love each other, it’s easy.”

“Oh sure, I absolutely believe that Joe Biden saw two men publicly kissing in the 1950s, and that his Irish-Catholic father responds by writing the permission of him,” Griswold.
