Hunter Biden, the son of former vice president and current 2020 contender Joe Biden, is back making headlines, and they have nothing to do with his former position on the board of a likely corrupt Ukranian energy firm.
It looks like Hunter Biden is going to be a father for the fifth time; Joe Biden, a grandfather for the seventh time.
The Daily Mail reported the news after photographing Hunter’s new wife, 32-year-old Melissa Cohen Biden, with a “baby bump,” while she was out doing some shopping in Los Angeles.
The pair married this past May, just ten days after they met.
The growing Biden family . . .
Those who try to keep up with Hunter’s relationships will be aware of the three children that he had with his former wife of 24 years, Kathleen Buhle. They are Naomi, 24, Finnegan, 19, and Maisy, 18. So, how does the new child with Cohen equal five kids?
Lunden Roberts, a 28-year-old Arkansas woman, recently brought a paternity suit against Biden, alleging that he is the father of her child and as such ought to carry out his parental duties. Biden vociferously denied the charges and denied having sexual relations with the woman — as one would expect, considering that Roberts reportedly worked as a stripper at a Washington, D.C. club.
Well, the judge in the paternity suit decided to make Biden undergo a DNA test, and, like an episode of Maury Povich, that test found that he was the father of the 16-month-old “Baby Doe.”
. . . and the growing Biden family problems
The bitter divorce with his former wife and the news of a love child would be just about too much for many individuals to handle. But, for Hunter, this is only the tip of the iceberg.
In many ways, the whole impeachment inquiry currently revolves around Hunter and his position at the Ukraine energy firm Burisma Holdings. Democrats have been trying their best to keep the focus on the alleged wrongdoing of President Donald Trump, knowing that if Republicans can show that Hunter and his father were up to no good in Ukraine, the chance of impeaching Trump goes out the window (that is, if it isn’t already out the window).
This is where things get worse for Biden, because the judge in the paternity suit is actually going to allow Roberts to question Biden about his earnings from working at Burisma. This was deemed necessary in order to get an accurate picture as to how much Biden ought to pay in child support.
Of course, the information that Biden reveals could end up playing a role in the impeachment.
Having a new child is a joy for all. But Hunter Biden certainly has a difficult road ahead.
