‘I love kids jumping on my lap’: A bizarre Joe Biden stump speech about leg hair and roaches is going viral and leaving many creeped out

A video clip of Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden went viral over the weekend, showing Biden sharing a bizarre story about roaches, leg hair, and kids jumping on his lap.

In the clip, which is a part of a speech Biden gave in Wilmington, Delaware, in 2017, Biden can be heard talking about his time working as a lifeguard at the local swimming pool.

“And by the way, you know I sit on the stand and it’d get hot. I got a lot of — I got hairy legs … that turn blonde in the sun,” Biden said struggling to find the right words. “And the kids used to come up and reach in the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and then watch the hair come back up again.”

“So I learned about roaches and I learned about kids jumping on my lap,” Biden continued.

“I love kids jumping on my lap,” he concluded.

The clip is pulled from Biden’s infamous “Corn Pop” story, which started to make the rounds on the internet back in September of this year. The full story can be heard here, with the part about leg hair starting at the 6:49 mark. Video of the full speech was provided by WITN-TV, Wilmington City Council’s government access channel.

What has been the response?

Many who have viewed the video have unsurprisingly been grossed out, creeped out, or both.

Here is a brief collection of some of the best Twitter responses:

  • “I am positive we didn’t need to hear something like this”
  • “What the literal hell is [Joe Biden] talking about, exactly?”
  • “I thought this was a Bad Lip Reading…”
  • “I think he is going senile.”
  • “Weird flex but okay.”

One responder poked fun how the clip would inevitably help his opponents, saying, “Biden probably violated FEC rules with this valuable of an in-kind donation to his opponents.”

Anything else?

On Saturday, Biden launched an eight-day campaign run through Iowa called the “No Malarkey” tour. It got off to a peculiar start.

Exhibit A: the finger nibble.

Biden is currently the frontrunner in the Democratic presidential primary, leading national polls by 10.4 points, according to the RealClearPolitics polling average. But in Iowa, Biden sits in fourth place, eight percentage points behind Pete Buttigieg.

The 2020 Democratic caucuses will take place Feb. 3. Time will tell if Biden’s bizarre campaign antics will endear voters or push them away.

  1. This guy is senile and a pervert. I have a friend who works at a political office where he visited and he was all over her. The secret service guy had to come over and separate them. Sorry, he is just not presidential material in any way or form. If he is senile now, just think how bad he will be while in the office for four years.

    1. He would be no more than some corrupt Dem’s puppet. He has no clue what to do. He needs to get off the stage. Why do we allow this????

    2. Can you imagine him visiting the Queen? The whole Kingdom was up in arms about Michelle touching her on the royal back…

  2. An Joe actually thinks he’ll have ANYONE in the national election that will vote for him as president? That’s a scary
    thought. Next! Bless Joe’s heart anyway.

  3. I see no real problem with the speech, but can’t help but notice the neighborhood is a segregated as when he was the only white person there.

  4. It looks like Old Joe the sexual cannibal is eating fingers off his wife Jill, and black children he says loves hair off his legs.

  5. Most people at his “events” don’t appear to know what the heck biden is talking about.
    Even democrat Axelrod referred to biden as Mr. Magoo at his events.

  6. Who is this man? I think this man has lost most of his marbles and
    can’t seem to find them. He makes up stories (lies), he babbles about
    things that are really questionable( hairy legs and bouncing on his lap)
    and getting angry when a question is asked he doesn’t want to answer.
    The man is not rapped really tight and is not the caliper of person we
    need as our President.

  7. As a Mother I feel very “uncomfortable” with VP Biden’s statement. Seriously, there is something very strange about that man. He is the Uncle you tell your kids to stay away from.
