Joe Biden Launches into Confused Ramble During Speech, Questions Raised - WATCH
2020 Democrat goes off-script with bizarre, nonsensical ramblings
Video emerged over the weekend showing 2020 Democrat Joe Biden seemingly going off-script and launching into several confused rambles, leaving many questioning whether the former vice president has the mental stability for a presidential run.
The clips shared on Twitter show Biden incoherently discussing children playing with his leg hair and how he "learned about roaches" during a speech on the campaign trail.
The videos appear to have come from a September campaign stop in Wilmington, Delaware but went viral on Saturday leaving many users feeling uneasy.
During his speech, 77-year-old Biden started rambling about how little kids used to play with his blond leg hair in the swimming pool while recalling a story about his time working as a lifeguard.
“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.
“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.”
He concludes his story by declaring: “I've loved kids jumping on my lap.”
The videos have already amassed millions of views and Biden has been widely mocked online for his bizarre story about children rubbing his hairy legs in the pool.

Nice to know Biden’s stands on hairy legs, roaches, and kids jumping on his lappic.twitter.com/OIW6RWmB2d— James Hirsen (@thejimjams) December 1, 2019
About two months before Iowa. . . I’m telling you, Biden is not going to be the nominee. If for some strange reason he is, Trump will crush him in the debates. https://t.co/Yjl1eA6fLP— Ned Ryun (@nedryun) December 1, 2019
Apparently when you remove the malarkey from Biden, all you have left is an old leather bag full of whatever-the-hell this is. https://t.co/TN1Zia1tic— Scott Adams (@ScottAdamsSays) December 1, 2019
Here's the word-for-word transcript of the "hairy legs" ramble, in case you didn't catch it all:
"And by the way, you know, I sit on the stand and I'd get hot.
"I gotta lotta, I got hairy legs that turn, that, that, that, that, that turn, err, gerr, err blond in the sun.
"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... come back up again, and look at it...
"So I learned about roaches.
"I learned about kids jumping up on my lap.
"And I've loved kids jumping on my lap."
The video appears to be from the same Wilmington event where Biden gave his confusing speech about his old nemesis Corn Pop.
Biden seemed to be retelling a story during a campaign event about an encounter with the supposed gang leader.
Better, longer version of Biden’s cornpop, rusty razor blades & rain barrels yarn. An infinitely less disturbing tale than the hairy legs & roaches story.— Rita Panahi (@RitaPanahi) December 1, 2019
Reminder: he’s currently the Democrat frontrunner.pic.twitter.com/jAQXXEyluk
This is the second embarressing Biden moment that surfaced this weekend and caused a stir online.
He was also mocked when a separate video emerged of him nibbling his wife’s finger while she gave a campaign speech in Iowa on Saturday.
Overall, Biden’s touchy-feely moments have cast a shadow over his campaign following allegations that he has made several women uncomfortable by touching them and sniffing their hair.
Biden is currently clinging on to frontrunner status in the Democratic presidential primary.
He leads in most polls with a RealClearPolitics polling average of 27% support.
