A new book claims to have the skinny on Vice President Biden’s swimming habits, citing Secret Service agents as saying the VP is a skinny dipping fan who prefers to hop in the pool sans swimsuit.

In quotes obtained by the New York Daily News from Ronald Kessler’s soon-to-be released book, The First Family Detail, the author writes that according to Secret Service agents, “whether at the vice president’s residence or at his home in Delaware, Biden has a habit of swimming in his pool nude.”

Kessler writes that because of Biden’s “lack of consideration as evidenced by” his alleged preference for baring it all in the pool, as well as constant schedule changes, “being assigned to his detail is considered the second worst assignment in the Secret Service.”

Kessler, a former reporter for the conservative magazine and website NewsMax, claims that the only assignment considered worse is protecting former Secretary of State Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonOvernight Defense: Government funding bill butts up against deadline | Pentagon reports eighth military COVID-19 death | Trump, Pentagon collide over anti-diversity training push Voters split on whether Trump, Biden will win first debate: poll New Monmouth poll finds Biden with 6-point lead MORE.
