The misadventures of Corn Pop and Joe

In 1962, a 19-year old Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., in an effort to get to know more about the minorities who occupied the mean streets of Wilmington, Delaware took a job as a lifeguard at a local public pool. It was at that very pool when Joe ran afoul of a member of the Romans gang by the name of Corn Pop. Soon, straight razors, chain, and Esther Williams became involved.

Here's Joe, back at the scene of the crime in 2017 when the pool was renamed in his honor. I'll let him tell you the story.

Joe and Corn Pop's misadventures are getting renewed attention after The Root's Michael Harriot called bullshit on Twitter.

You can read the rest of the 19-tweet thread here.

So, because it's silly season, I'm sure someone will be offering a reward for information on Corn Pop's whereabouts. Only 141 more days until the Iowa caucuses. Stay strong.

Joe Biden would rather 'beat the hell' out of Trump than debate him

Joe Biden continues to say what he thinks, and advocates violence against sexual predators.

Via the Daily Beast:

Appearing Tuesday evening at a University of Miami event, the former vice president declared that a younger version of himself would have had no problem resorting to fisticuffs to teach Trump a lesson about dignity.

“When a guy who ended up becoming our national leader said, ‘I can grab a woman anywhere and she likes it,’” Biden said during the anti-sexual assault It's On Us event. “They asked me if I’d like to debate this gentleman, and I said no. I said, ‘If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.’”

Biden, who is often discussed as a frontrunner for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, went on to refer to Trump’s infamous “locker-room talk” excuse for his vulgar words about women.

“I’ve been in a lot of locker rooms my whole life,” Biden said. “I’m a pretty damn good athlete.”

He quipped: “Any guy that talked that way was usually the fattest, ugliest SOB in the room.”
