In a soon-to-be-released memoir, Hunter Biden recounts his ongoing problems with drug addiction, including the fact that he “has no recollection” of an encounter with a stripper that is the mother of his illegitimate child.
Fox News obtained an advanced copy of the memoir, which is entitled “Beautiful Things.” In it, the recovering addict and the son of President Biden details his continuing struggles with drugs, particularly in the wake of the death of his older brother Beau in 2015. The beleaguered son of the current President also writes that he “has no recollection” of an encounter with an ex-stripper from Arkansas who gave birth to their child in 2018. During what Hunter describes as “more than four years of active addiction” with intermittent failed attempts to get clean, he fathered a child with the stripper who worked at a Washington, D.C., club at the time.
The younger Biden mentioned the woman and her child as he was explaining in the book how he’d had “very little” in the way of any kind of “meaningful romantic relationships” for most of his adult life. Hunter wrote, “I’m not proud of it. It’s why I would later challenge in court the woman from Arkansas who had a baby in 2018 and claimed the child was mine — I had no recollection of our encounter. That’s how little connection I had with anyone. I was a mess, but a mess I’ve taken responsibility for.”
But the Courts verified the still-unnamed woman’s claim. Independence County, Ark., Circuit Judge Holly Meyer issued an order in January 2020 establishing that Hunter Biden had fathered the woman’s child. The order said that DNA tests made that fact “unmistakably clear.”
“The results of the DNA tests indicate with near scientific certainty that the defendant is the biological father of the child in this case,” the order said.
The younger Bidens memory lapses seem to be an ongoing theme in his book. While promoting the book on the weekend shows, Biden said during one interview that he had “no idea” if the laptop first reported on last fall by the New York Post as containing damning information about his business affairs was his. He said, “it could be.” Quickly adding though that “It could be that I was hacked. It could be that it was Russian intelligence. It could be that it was stolen from me.”
CBS also asked Biden whether he dropped the laptop off at a repair shop in Delaware, where it was found. But, apparently, his drug-addled memory was in play there as well, since his response was, “No. Not that I remember at all. At all,” he said.
In those same interviews, the son of the President attempted to blame President Trump for revealing his corrupt ties to the former Ukrainian regime. He falsely claimed the calls to investigate his business dealings overseas were “illegitimate” despite the existence of material evidence suggesting money laundering and abuse by his father during the time he was vice president.
