OPINION: The Truth About Joe Biden Vs. Corn Pop, the bad, black hombre Sleepy Joe took to the woodshed
Opinion by DJ Mellons: A video clip surfaced this week of Sleepy Joe Biden recounting an encounter with a gangsta named “Corn Pop” where Joe the white guy stood up to Corn the black guy and didn’t put his hands on anybody for a change.
I personally think this is the funniest story of the decade. You can’t make this stuff up – unless you are Joe Biden, then you can make up anything and still be the front-runner. Democrats can say anything and get away with it. They are the Party of the Stupid and it doesn’t get any dumber than Corn Pop VS Almighty Joe:
It begins with the usual virtual signaling – Joe got started in the early ’60s: In the summer of 1962 he says he took a job as a lifeguard at a primarily black swim club in order according to the Washington Post, “Learn more about the Black community”… Yeah, right. 1. Wants to save the lives of blacks? Check. 2. Wants to be enlightened? Check. 3. Was hanging out with blacks before it was cool? Check. 4. Defended the good blacks against bad blacks… check? wait – what?
Yeah – Almighty, Sleepy, Creepy, I don’t know what day or city it is Joe Biden stood up to the gangs when they got out of line way back before Pete Boot Edge Edge was even conceived.
Joe wants you to believe a gang called “The Romans” lead by a ‘bad dude’ (Joe’s words) named Corn Pop showed up at the pool and **GASP** violated the rules governing the diving board!! Biden expelled Corn Pop from the pool area and was then confronted by an angry Corn Pop in the parking lot carrying a straight razor.
Did Joe Biden disarm Corn and have him arrested for attempted assault or murder? Nope. Mr. world diplomacy talked Corn off the ledge and was so persuasive, Joe was protected by Corn Pop’s gang for the rest of the summer. Another version is Biden gets “Corn Pop” to put down his straight razor and become friends after threatening to beat him with the “six-foot metal chain around his arm.”
Anyone who thinks this is true just feels sorry for Joe.
This is BIZARRE!

The Root writer Michael Harriot offered his own annotated Twitter version of Biden’s “Corn Pop the gangsta” story, calling out several suspicious details and mocking whether he was the “only white lifeguard” at the Brown-Burton Winchester Park swimming pool that summer.
Harriot comically retold Biden’s harrowing tale of 1962 racial strife by noting it’s “already been demonstrably proven Biden will make stuff up.” The Root senior writer and his social media followers joined him in questioning some of the basic facts of Biden’s battle against “the Romans” street gang that he says “any black person” would doubt. Harriot repeatedly urges his followers to “STOP LAUGHING” as he relays Biden’s own words, primarily taken from his 2008 autobiography Promises to Keep.
“[A]ny black person who hears this story will automatically give you the side-eye and say: “n**** please,” Harriot writes at the outset of his viral Twitter thread. “It begins when Biden was working as a lifeguard at a pool.”
“He says he did it — y’all, I SWEAR this is true — ‘in hopes of learning more about the black community.’ Yes, that’s an actual quote,” Harriot added.
Several Biden supporters recently produced images showing a newspaper obituary of a man nicknamed “Cornpop” who passed away in 2016 at the age of 73.
In August 2013, then-U.S. Senate candidate and now-Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker was accused of fabricating a Newark, New Jersey drug pusher he’d supposedly met on the street nicknamed, “T-Bone.” Several conservative news outlets pounced on the character who’d become a fixture in Booker’s stories as a fabrication for political purposes.
Biden is facing skepticism for a story he has told about a 1960s confrontation at a Wilmington, Delaware pool with a guy named Corn Pop — partly because of the name Corn Pop.

“I’m always astounded by the imaginings of white people as it relates to race. Many of them have this fictionalized jigaboo version that is almost alien-like. And one of the greatest examples of this ever is Joe Biden’s story about Corn Pop the gangsta,” Harriot tweeted.
Harriot’s annotated version of the story also challenges some basic historical facts including that, “Biden says he became popular at the pool because many of the black people in Wilmington, DE had never talked to a white person before. This raised my bullshit-o-meter, so I decided to look it up. In 1960, Wilmington was 73 percent white, according to census records.”
In a 1970 interview with the Wilmington News Journal, Biden said white locals threatened him for trying to push for public housing. “The first time the phone rang and someone said, ‘You n***** lover, you want them living next to you,’ I was shocked,” Biden said at the time. An entire story on the swimming pool incident was published in The Washington Post in June 2017, in which the newspaper detailed lessons he “learned as the only white lifeguard at an inner city pool in 1962.”
But Harriot appeared very suspicious of much of Biden’s swimming pool tale: “But this is not about Biden. This is a celebration of the life of a straight razor-carrying certified street thug who I’d bet my pinky toe never existed. But if you ask Biden, I bet he’d say Corn Pop has passed on.”
