The mother of Hunter Biden’s fourth child, with whom he is estranged, spoke candidly about her interactions with the president’s son in an article that appeared in The New York Times on Saturday.
According to The New York Times, Lunden Roberts, who has a daughter with Hunter Biden and was once his assistant, has spoken out about dealing with him after their child was born in 2018. She specifically mentions the president and his son’s attempts to distance themselves from the child. Hunter Biden and Roberts reached a courtroom agreement on child support on Thursday.
“We worked it out amongst ourselves,” Roberts told the NYT. As part of the settlement, Hunter Biden will turn over some of his paintings — which have been offered for prices up to $500,000 — to his daughter at her choosing.
“I hope one day when you look back you find yourself proud of who you are, where you come from, and most importantly, who raised you,” Roberts captioned an Instagram post in a presumed jab at Hunter Biden.
“I read things about myself that I have no clue about,” she told the NYT, saying the only thing that bothers her is accusations of being a bad mother. “People can call me whatever they want, but they can’t call me that.”
By the time the child was delivered in 2018, Roberts said that Biden had stopped returning her text messages, and that he later dropped Roberts and the infant from his health insurance, according to the NYT. Then, in 2019, a lawsuit was utilized to obtain DNA testing to prove that Hunter Biden is the father.
The NYT reports that Hunter Biden resisted the request, and it was abandoned as part of the settlement. The original child support claim included a request to change the child’s last name to Biden.
“She’s very proud of who her grandfather is and who her dad is,” Roberts said, according to the NYT. “That is something that I would never allow her to think otherwise.”
Biden has consistently refrained from claiming that Roberts’ daughter is his descendant. According to the NYT, in strategy sessions, the president’s aides apparently learned that the Bidens have six grandkids rather than seven.
“And then, the best part of it all, I have six grandchildren,” the president said in April at a Take Your Child to Work Day event. “And I’m crazy about them. And I speak to them every single day. Not a joke.”
The New York Times wrote:
[Joe Biden’s] public image is centered around his devotion to his family — including to Hunter, his only surviving son. In strategy meetings in recent years, aides have been told that the Bidens have six, not seven, grandchildren, according to two people familiar with the discussions.
The White House did not respond to questions about the case, in keeping with how officials have answered questions about the Biden family before.
What a bold step. They are creating an entire message strategy around the fact that they are disowning their granddaughter, ensuring that White House officials are on the same page, in addition to doing so for no other reason than vile spite (and through no fault of the child).
It would be one thing if Hunter Biden were only a bad person gone rogue. Joe and Jill Biden would be expected to distance themselves from him and his wrongdoings while still attempting to be present in their granddaughter’s life in such a scenario. They wouldn’t stop loving him, but they would hold him responsible for his actions before they abandoned a helpless grandchild to support their son.
The only reasonable conclusion in this situation is that Joe and Jill Biden are dreadful people. Even if the mother had given the Bidens instructions to avoid her and her child, that is still no justification for acting as though she doesn’t exist. Is this truly the level of haughtiness the president and his wife have reached? that they think their behavior will be tolerated? Now, it is a rhetorical question.
