    Think old Joe has watched "The Cross andThe Switchblade" too many times with one of his old stories coming back to light. What kind of bad-azz gang leader has a handle like "Corn Pop"??
    Joe Biden Recalls Terrifying 1960s Public Pool Confrontation With Razor-Wielding Gangster Named "Corn Pop"
    https://www.realclearpolitics.com/v...h_razor-weilding_gangster_named_corn_pop.html

    The Root" senior writer Michael Harriot raised new questions about former Vice President Joe Biden's perspective on race relations in the wake of comments he made about slavery during Thursday's presidential debate.

    Harriot recalled a story Joe Biden sometimes tells about the summer of 1962 when he was the only white lifeguard at a public pool in Wilmington, Delaware. After telling a swimmer to exercise caution on the diving board, Biden is warned that he had offended "Corn Pop," the leader of a local gang. Corn Pop next tells Biden that he will be waiting outside with a switchblade when his shift is over. Luckily, Biden defends himself by wrapping a metal chain around his arm and eventually befriends Corn Pop.

    “And I looked at him, but I was smart then, I said, first of all, I said when I tell you to get off the board you get off the board, and I’ll kick you out again, but I shouldn’t have called you Esther Williams, I apologize for that," Biden said he said. Fortuitously, Corn Pop accepted Biden's apology.

    Biden has told the story multiple times, including in one of his books and at a 2017 ceremony where they re-named the pool after him (video above). Harriot's tweets are particularly funny:

    I blame Delaware.

    Boobs like Biden whose political careers would peak at the Home Owner’s Association level in any other state are instead 7-term US Senators, on to VP and Presidential contenders.

    I wish Pennsylvania never gave up the Lower Counties to begin with.

    Enjoy it while it lasts, folks... Crazy Uncle Joe won't be in this race much longer, and then we're likely to never hear his crazy doofus-isms again.

    The last time I looked Biden was leading the pack especially with older dim voters. If by some disaster he got elected we will again become a laughing stock.

    If someone with a knife comes at you, just find a chain to wrap around your arm and you'll scare them away especially if it's someone with a name like Corn Hole.

    Well, I found him. He's real, and he does exist. And you can just see the menace in his face.

    I give you - Corn Pop:

    The side effects from the meds are kicking in. Either that, or he still has the lingering effects of a bad acid trip in the 60s.

    The Bernie Bots/Pocahontas crowd will sit this one out in bigger numbers than in 16 if Creepy Joe gets the nod. They’re not going to give him any brownie points for being Barry’s waterboy for two terms. Clinton couldn’t ride Barry’s coat tails with them and you can be sure an old white dude won’t. I’m sure Biden is the most popular of the lot with self described moderates and old school liberals in the party. I’m just not sure that’s enough at this point to overcome the Communists that’ll stay home if he wins the nomination. He may take a payoff like Bernie did in 16 so Kamala the Ugandan Huzzy or Pocahontas can get the nod.
