Hunter Biden Has Written His Memoirs And They Are … Something


President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden released his memoirs on Tuesday and raised eyebrows by making bold claims and omitting various controversies which have beleaguered him.

The memoirs: “Beautiful Things,” which features cover blurbs from horror writer Stephen King and essayist Dave Eggers, chronicles Biden’s high-profile struggles with drug and alcohol abuse.

  • But the book does not directly mention Biden’s fifth child with stripper Lunden Alexis Roberts.
  • Roberts was granted child support by way of a March 2020 settlement in a paternity suit against the president’s son.
  • Biden mentioned the child only in the context of his out-of-control living situation, writing, “It’s why I would later challenge in court the woman in Arkansas who had a baby in 2018 and claimed the child was mine. I had no recollection of our encounter.”

The scandals: The paternity suit settlement allowed Biden to continue hiding details about his finances, including his lucrative $50,000-per-month deal with Ukrainian energy giant Burisma.

  • Biden defended his role in the company, despite accusations he’d used his father’s name to obtain a position he was vastly underqualified for, by suggesting it was ultimately a thumb in the eye to Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
  • “To put it more bluntly: having a Biden on Burisma’s board was a loud and unmistakable f*ck-you to Putin,” he wrote, claiming Burisma served as a “bulwark” against Russian interference in the Ukrainian energy industry.
  • Other allegations of financial malfeasance receive no mention in “Beautiful Things,” nor does Biden address a scandal involving controversial emails acquired by Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump’s lawyer.

The reaction: While “Beautiful Things” has received praise in the mainstream press, it drew ridicule and outrage from right-leaning critics who have claimed media outlets suppressed reporting on Biden’s personal difficulties in an effort to aid his father’s presidential campaign.

  • They also cast blame on big tech platforms for limiting the spread of New York Post reports on the contents of the laptop obtained by Giuliani.
  • The president, however, has stood by his son.
  • “Beautiful Things” publisher Simon & Schuster announced Wednesday that it would be publishing Mike Pence’s two-part memoirs about “faith and public service.”
