Hunter Biden, the extremely troubled younger son of President Joe Biden, published an op-ed he wrote for USA Today where he accused both Fox News and the New York Post of using him as part of a “disinformation campaign” by weaponizing his personal struggles to try and destroy his dad, President Joe Biden. I guess Hunter does not see engaging in an influence peddling scheme when your dad is serving as vice president as something that might be problematic for his father’s political ambitions, not to mention said activity is against the law.
Then again, doing things against the law has never really been an issue for Hunter Biden, has it? I think his rap sheet speaks to that.
“The younger Biden began his piece with a brief history of his battle with substance abuse — and, noting correctly that most Americans know at least one person who has struggled with addiction, said that the only reason anyone cared about his personal issues was the fact that he was the son of the president of the United States,” the Daily Wire reported.
“My struggles and my mistakes have been fodder for a vile and sustained disinformation campaign against him, and an all-out annihilation of my reputation through high-pitched but fruitless congressional investigations and, more recently, criminal charges for possessing an unloaded gun for 11 days five years ago – charges that appear to be the first-ever of their kind brought in the history of Delaware,” Biden stated in his op-ed.
As the piece progressed, Hunter said that he’s not a victim in the situation, but was concerned that all of the attention being paid to his personal problems would be used as weaponry against his dad or might cause others who struggle with substance addiction to be scared to ask others for help due to seeing all of his dirty laundry aired out for all to see in the daily headlines.
Well, that’s a bunch of baloney. The average person’s father isn’t the president. Most folks who struggle with drug addiction are not famous. What they do behind closed doors is largely only known to their friends and loved ones. To use this as an excuse to be mad about your public affairs being splashed all over the internet is ridiculous.
“What troubles me is the demonization of addiction, of human frailty, using me as its avatar and the devastating consequences it has for the millions struggling with addiction, desperate for a way out and being bombarded by the denigrating and near-constant coverage of me and my addiction on Fox News (more airtime than GOP presidential candidate Ron DeSantis) and in The New York Post (an average of two stories a day over the past year),” he wrote in the article.
Unfortunately, most of Hunter’s critics weren’t buying what he was trying to sell.
“1) I pray Hunter is in fact sober, though this level of untreated narcissism suggests serious ongoing problems. 2) legit LOL at USA Today for running this on-its-face absurd interference for Biden family business corruption,” The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway stated in a response to the article.

“Don’t talk about Hunter Biden enriching himself off of the CCP at the expense of national security, engaging in human trafficking, violating gun laws and FARA because you’re ‘demonizing’ his coke addiction,” radio host Dana Loesch posted. “Shame on privileged Hunter Biden for exploiting addiction to dodge accountability for his crimes. Not all addicts sell out their country to the CCP and not all criminals are addicts,” she added in a different post.
