New book about Biden details petty and vulgar attacks against predecessor, distrust in Secret Service detail

There have been reports over the years that President Joe Biden, despite his public persona as an affable grandfather figure, is actually a rather petty and vulgar man behind the scenes.

That alleged reality is reportedly on display in a new book about Biden that claims the president has repeatedly and explicitly lashed out against his predecessor as well as that he no longer trusts the Secret Service agents who protect him, according to the New York Post.

Those and other claims are included in a new book from bestselling author and journalist Chris Whipple titled, “The Fight for His Life: Inside Joe Biden’s White House,” which is set to be released on Jan. 17.

Biden hates the Trump-installed golf simulator at White House

The Post, which received an advance copy of Whipple’s book, reported that President Biden will often “let loose” with vulgarities in regard to the “former guy” while giving friends and guests tours of the White House.

Biden is reported to have taken particular exception to a big-screen TV and golf simulator that former President Donald Trump had installed in an upstairs room in the presidential residence.

According to Whipple, Biden once said “What a f–king a–hole” in regard to Trump while “showing the contraption to a guest.”

Wanted to remove the Resolute Desk from the Oval Office

Whipple also wrote of how President Biden had unsuccessfully attempted to rid the Oval Office of the famed Resolute Desk, simply because it had been used previously by former President Trump.

That desk, which had been created from the timbers of an old British warship and gifted to the United States by Queen Victoria, ultimately ended up in the White House under the former presidency of John F. Kennedy and has been used by nearly every other president since then, with few exceptions.

Whipple’s book noted that Biden had wanted to replace the Resolute Desk with a different desk that had been used by former President Franklin D. Roosevelt, but the Roosevelt estate in Hyde Park, New York, had refused to allow the former New Deal president’s desk be moved back to the White House for Biden’s use.

Lack of trust in the Secret Service

According to the U.K. Independent, Whipple’s book also exposed a deep distrust that has developed with President Biden with respect to the U.S. Secret Service as a whole and his protective detail in particular.

That is reportedly a sharp contrast from the days when Biden served as vice president and was said to have cultivated close relationships with the agents who’d been assigned to protect him from harm.

Now, however, Biden has stopped being friendly or speaking freely around Secret Service agents as he has reportedly reached the conclusion that the agency “is full of white ex-cops from the South who tend to be deeply conservative” and that his protective detail is full of “MAGA sympathizers” who retain loyalty to former President Trump.

Per the book, Biden is also said to have taken issue with the manner in which the Secret Service responded to the demands for documents from the overtly anti-Trump House Select Committee tasked with investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot of 2021, which undoubtedly has fueled his new distrust.

Furthermore, the president was described as being highly skeptical of the reported details of the multiple biting incidents involving former first dog Major and was said to have accused the Secret Service, or somebody, of lying about what actually occurred.
