President Trump's campaign has seized on a resurfaced clip of Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden in which the former vice president described how children would rub his leg hair back when he was a lifeguard at a Delaware pool in his younger days.

"I got hairy legs that turned ... blonde in the sun. And the kids used to come up and reach into the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and watch the hair come back up again," Biden recalled. He then said he "learned about kids jumping on my lap, and I loved kids jumping on my lap."

A video of the comments was shared by Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh Sunday morning with the lament, "This can't be real life."

While there was nothing nefarious about the tale, Biden's opponents are seizing on it as yet another awkward and bizarre moment from a Biden speech, which he gave in June 2017. The full version reveals that the story otherwise had little to do with what Biden had been talking about, as it was immediately preceded by praise for Herman Holloway, the first black state senator in Delaware's history who was elected in 1964. Biden addressed Holloway's son, Herman Jr., who was in attendance.
