President Joe Biden’s image has been centered on his devotion to his family, including recovering addict Hunter Biden, who has been kept increasingly close. The president has been essentially babysitting the bad son.
Yet there seems to be one member of the family that isn’t included – the illegitimate daughter of Hunter Biden.
Perhaps it is now time to ask a question no one in the media has dared asked – would Joe Biden have preferred that this child not be born? But it remains a fair one to ask as the girl in question is very much President’s Biden grandchild, even if Joe and Jill Biden refuse to acknowledge her existence.
As The New York Times reported, “The girl is aware that her father is Hunter Biden and that her paternal grandfather is the president of the United States. She speaks about both of them often, but she has not met them. Her maternal grandfather, Rob Roberts, described her as whip-smart and funny.”
However, while it is true that the child knows her grandfather is the president of the United States, to Joe Biden she simply doesn’t exist. He refuses to acknowledge her – so the questions to ask: is the 81-year-old president unable to count to seven, as he repeatedly has said he has six grandchildren; or is possible he truly in his good Catholic heart simply wished this child was never born.
Hunter Biden met the girl’s mother, Lunden Roberts in 2018, and the according to the paper of record she worked as his “personal assistant.” Their daughter was born later that year, but by then, Hunter Biden had stopped responding to Roberts. Shortly after the child was born in November 2018, Hunter Biden even removed Roberts and the child from his health insurance.
Roberts subsequently filed a lawsuit, while a DNA test later established that Hunter Biden was the father of the child. Hunter – who has four other children – has maintained that he fathered the girl at a low point in his life. Hunter Biden originally agreed to pay $20,000 in monthly child support payments back in 2020 – although the recent settlement allegedly greatly reduced the support to $5,000 a month.
Case Settled – But Not an Innocent Child’s Status in the World
It was just last week that Hunter Biden settled his child support case in Arkansas, ending a years-long paternity dispute. Hunter has generously agreed to give his daughter some of his paintings, while Lunden Roberts agreed to withdraw her efforts to change their daughter’s name to “Biden.”
Even as the case is settled, it fails to explain how Joe Biden is able to turn his back on the child.
As The New York Times also record reported, on a proclamation issued on Father’s Day, President Biden said that his father had “taught me that, above all, family is the beginning, middle and end — a lesson I have passed down to my children and grandchildren,” while he went on to add, “Family is life’s greatest blessing and responsibility.”
Apparently, that doesn’t extend to his seventh grandchild.
The Biggest Joe Biden Scandal Of All
It was in April that President Biden told a group of children that he had “six grandchildren. And I’m crazy about them. And I speak to them every single day. Not a joke.”
What isn’t a joke is that Hunter Biden has – for all his troubles – at least taken some responsibility when it comes to the four-year-old girl. That does not extend to his father, who has essentially tried to make her go away.
Joe Biden has become much like a monarch from earlier times, who would pay off a mistress or that of his sons and turn, while the court would turn its back on any illegitimate offspring. Those children were never officially recognized – and such is the case today.
Multiple news organizations including The New York Times and The New York Post have reported that in strategy meetings, aides have been told that Joe and Jill Biden have six – NOT SEVEN – grandchildren. It could be argued that lying also comes easy to Joe Biden, so why shouldn’t he lie to himself and pretend the love child doesn’t exist?
The White House has not responded to the reports.
