Hunter Biden continues to cause headaches for his father’s presidential campaign.
He is the cause of a stream of scandals.
And now he is freaking out after his biggest secret was revealed.
Joe Biden wants America to believe that he didn’t use his influence over energy policy in Ukraine to financially enrich his son, Hunter, who was making $50,000 a month as a board member of the country’s top energy company.
Hunter Biden, who had no experience in the field, was given the job at Burisma Holdings while his dad was serving as Vice President.
Eventually, Burisma was put under investigation, only for the prosecutor investigating them to be fired.
And shortly after, Biden bragged about how he threatened to withhold $1 billion in aid if he wasn’t fired.
Despite this, the Bidens contend that nothing fishy was going on, and that his position was based on his merits.
In an interview with ABC News, Hunter Biden contends that the main piece of experience that prepared him for the position was that he was the chairman of the board of Amtrak.
“Well, I was vice chairman of the board of Amtrak for five years,” Biden said. “I was the chairman of the board of the U.N. World Food Program. I was a lawyer for Boies Schiller Flexner, one of the most prestigious law firms in the world.”
But as it turns out, he didn’t seem to have many qualifications for his position at Amtrak either.
Democratic Delaware Sen. Tom Carper, who was pushing for Hunter Biden to get the position used the fact that he had ridden on Amtrak trains to justify his position.
“More significantly, Hunter has spent a lot of time on Amtrak trains,” Carper said after listing schools Biden attended. “Like his father, Rep. Mike Castle and myself, Hunter Biden has lived in Delaware while using Amtrak to commute to his job in Washington, D.C.”
His statement was so ridiculous that Rolling Stone writer Matt Taibbi described it as a “sarcastic anti-recommendation.”
Hunter Biden only made it anywhere in life due to the last name he has.
He even admitted this fact during the ABC interview.
Biden has a long record of drug and alcohol abuse.
An article in the New Yorker describes just how extreme his drug habits were.
They explain one situation Biden was in where he visited a homeless encampment in Los Angeles, where he was held at gunpoint while trying to purchase crack cocaine.
The New Yorker reports:
“[Hunter Biden] said that he ‘needed a way to forget,’ and that, soon after his arrival in L.A., he asked a homeless man in Pershing Square where he could buy crack. Hunter said that the man took him to a nearby homeless encampment, where, in a narrow passageway between tents, someone put a gun to his head before realizing that he was a buyer. He returned to buy more crack a few times that week.”
This is the man that is trying to argue that he was qualified to hold a job in a field he has no experience in, making $50,000 a month.
It doesn’t take a genius to realize that he was only there so his proximity to the Vice President could be abused for financial gain.
Do you think Joe Biden should drop out of the race?
