‘It gave me hope’: Joe Biden gets choked up over son Hunter’s forthcoming memoir

President Joe Biden broke down in front of the camera on Sunday over his son Hunter’s upcoming memoir.

According to The Hill, Biden got choked up while discussing his son’s book with CBS correspondent Norah O’Donnell in an interview that aired just before the Super Bowl.

“The honesty with which he stepped forward and talked about the problem… It gave me hope reading it,” the president said, as The Hill reported. “It was like my boy’s back.”

Hunter Biden’s new book

The book, titled Beautiful Things, is set for release April 6, The Hill reports. It is said to focus largely on Hunter Biden’s struggles with drug addiction.

“You know, I’ll bet there’s not a family you know that doesn’t have somebody in the family that had a drug problem or an alcohol problem,” the president said during his CBS interview, according to The Hill. Take a look:

In an excerpt of the book shared by The Guardian, the president’s son writes, “I come from a family forged by tragedies and bound by a remarkable, unbreakable love.”

The silence is deafening

While the Bidens have been willing to openly discuss Hunter’s struggles with substance abuse, however, they’ve been less forthcoming about his business history.

As reported by CNBC in 2019, then-candidate Joe Biden reacted angrily to an Iowa voter who raised questions about his son’s alleged ties to a Ukrainian energy firm.

“You’re a damn liar, and that’s not true,” the now-president said when the man suggested that Hunter Biden had been hired due to his father’s political connections, according to CNBC.

Fox News reported in December that Hunter Biden had acknowledged that he was under federal investigation for his “tax affairs” in a statement posted to his father’s transition website, but Hunter insisted that he had handled his finances “legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors.”

Politico later revealed that the federal probes “covered more than taxes,” reporting Dec. 9:

[A]s of early last year, investigators in Delaware and Washington were also probing potential money laundering and Hunter Biden’s foreign ties.

    1. Hunter is a POS and he should had OD from his drug use. Anyone who buys his book is no better then he is. I pray that tragedy befalls on the Biden family very soon, starting at the top and works down.

  1. Well his substance explains his business dealings were to support his habit. How Biden didn’t help his son when he needed it most is so sad. What kind of father would not help his son?

    1. Joe contributed to his son’s demise with using him to do illegal things in foreign countries (our enemies) Joe needs to look in the mirror and see what a pathetic human being he is.

    2. The very corrupt kind joey biden is, that is the type that will never help his son. Best help for hunter biden is lifelong prison term without his drugs!

    3. ‘Help’ him!! More like he ‘joined’ him in his dealings with China! He ‘indirectly’ helped Hunter ‘get’ that post just by ‘being’ in our government. ‘Useful’ ‘id*ot’ by Chinese standards.

  3. Those corrupt bidens, all of them, are as crooked as the Clinton’s and obumas and should be in orange jumpsuits.

  4. King Joseph is using executive orders to hide his son’s miss deeds . It looks like that Hunter, Clintons , and others has other plans for the 2016 election result Maybe to line their pockets deeper .By keeping the country in term oil. Keeping the focus on any one thing becomes harder and many things slip through.

  5. biden got hope about hunter? I hope every day he’ll go to jail where he belongs,& joe is there too,but never gets to see or talk to him. They are disgusting greedy lowlifes,& don’t deserve a second more gr edom!

  6. With biden in the WH our Country is up for grabs just like it was when clinton and obama were there. It is like having a for sale sign outside.

  7. Hunter needs a “come to Jesus” moment instead of profiting from a book that tries to make us all feel bad for him. He needs to repent for all the lives he has messed up and “come clean” on his criminal activities. This will give him true healing and peace NOT a “cover up” book for his past deeds.

    1. The way we can get him back nobody bye his book.But book company cancel all Republicans books but they will put his out.I think they should put all in jail.

  8. Biden is a joke ,crooked family just like the clinton .How much money did they take from the Russians ,Chinese and Iran ,Iraq.Biden’s are crooked people.

    1. The ‘Dems’ all made fortunes with crooked foreign dealings. Now they’re ‘back at the well’ for more. The ‘oil well’ to be exact. Biden supports the ‘pipeline’ between Russia and the Arabs but shuts ours down!! Hey, Biden– who do you ‘love’?? It certainly isn’t America!! Hope all you folks that helped this to happen are ‘happy’!! You won’t be for long. This will only profit the ‘Elites’ and you ‘election che*ters’ aren’t one of them!!

  9. Really a shame that Joe Biden cannot admit his and his sons’ weaknesses and come clean. Denial will only make things worse for them. Seems Biden
    has no qualms about blaming Trump for his failings. It goes both ways,
    Joe.

    1. ‘Blame’ never fixed a problem. And, boy, does America ever have a ‘problem’!!! MAJOR!! ‘Heard’ about the ‘Great Depression’?? Nothing ‘great’ about it and we’re about to ‘live’ it!!

  10. Obama controlled Biden belongs in prison with his son,brother and the rest of the lying treason filled Dems that stole Trumps election,amoung other crimes ,extortion, sabotage ,espionage,setting U.S.A. up to destroy America ,getting our country so weak as to give us to China – cause Paloski,Shummer, Shift,Maxine Waters, AOC+1 – grief, Clinton’s ,Obama,Biden etc Kelly I believe and others “ must be stopped “ to save our beloved America . Our Federal Marshals ,FBI and Military Leaders at Pentagon seeing all the Swamps evil exposed by Trump and his team should make their move ASAP to Save America , and prevent a full civil war 🇺🇸👮‍♀️🇺🇸👫🇺🇸

  11. The Bidens have enough political pull that they constantly get away with murder. (Just a figure of speech.) Hunter is a U.S Navy dropout, a child support evader, a Benedict Arnold, and should in-all-likelihood be, a felon. Good work Joe! You’ve done a great job with your son that “I couldn’t be prouder of”. No justice.
    God help us.

  12. Didn’t Hunter Biden father a baby in between marriages? I saw a bio that said he had 3 children by first wife, one child by current wife. Another bio said he had FIVE CHILDREN, the 5th from a “one night stand”……Know the news media lies all the time so just asking if this is true.

  13. Biden Family are all TRADERS to AMERICAN PEOPLE! It is a shame that we have such a family like them to welcome other countries.

    1. Had to laugh (a bit)!! ‘Welcome other countries’ Yeah, like ‘Welcome China, Russia and Saudi Arabia!! Just make yourselves at home!! Couldn’t have a ‘better’ family to ‘welcome’ them!!

  14. My one worry is that Biden is not selling out America for his own financial gain.. from what is being said on AOL he is and has for a long time.. he single handedly destroying America and dividing us even further then we were before Obama… how does he not get impeached for what he openly is doing to this country… every American should be worried and afraid.. we are being attacked with his executive orders for illegals and for what plans that party has for Americans … be worried very worried!

    1. Worry and ‘Blame’ never solved anything!! ‘I’ personally want ‘answers’!! Are we so vulnerable in this country that we can be simply ‘over-taken’ by enemy countries without a ‘whimper’?? Those who ‘do’ are labeled ‘terrorists’ and our courts, law enforcers and media ‘punish’ our patriots?! What is far worse—it’s being ‘allowed’ to happen!!

  15. Hey pop, your little boy has more than a drug problem. He’s a crook and pedophile. As the saying goes….the acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree. You, you slimeball just executed a coup d’etat and you’re soooo proud of that. You disgust me!

  16. What a pack of Lieing Phonies!
    I believe that the very extreme Bottom of the Barrel has been reached and guess what”s been found. The Biden Crime Syndicate!!!
    May God help us all!

  17. Needs to be in prison doing hard time. Not profiting from his book. All the money he gets should be donated to a rehabilitation center. He is liar, cheat, and backstabbing bastard just like his father. They both belong in prison and throw away the key. Let them rot in prison.

  18. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague
    who had been doing a little research on this.
    And he actually ordered me breakfast due to the fact
    that I discovered it for him… lol. So let me reword this….
    Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to talk about
    this issue here on your web site.

  19. I’m not sure why but this weblog is loading very slow
    for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue
    on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
