(FiveNation.com)- Before making an appearance on The View, the sister of President Joe Biden was given advanced notice that one of the cohosts intended to ask about her brother Hunter Biden’s legal troubles.
During her April appearance on the daytime talk show, longtime Democratic political operative Valerie Biden Owens discussed the “family dynamics” of the Biden family. Owens was promoting her book, Growing Up Biden, at the time of her appearance. However, according to Vanity Fair, Owens had “been warned during a commercial” to anticipate a question about Hunter from conservative View guest host Alyssa Farah Griffin. Griffin had been invited to the show to discuss politics.
There have been multiple instances in which members of the media have stepped in to defend the Biden family against rumors and stories about Hunter’s malfeasance. Shortly before the elections, several media outlets, including CNN, NPR, and Politico, suggested that the reports of Hunter’s illegal activities were “Russian disinformation.” Since then, many news organizations, most notably the New York Times, have confirmed that the initial reports were accurate.
It never ceases to amaze how the left circles the wagons to protect themselves. But to defend a crack-addled, untalented shakedown artist, who cashes in on his family name in questionable ways, is despicable.
Biden is currently in court defending himself against a criminal probe of his taxes, and the left deems it “out-of-bounds” to even serve up a question about it.
Hunter’s aunt is on a media tour offering up a hagiography of the loathsome Biden, which should remain unchallenged. As she tells it, Hunter is a good boy, an artist.
During the controversy surrounding Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop and allegations of financial misconduct, Owens defended him as a victim of conservative attacks.
Asked if her nephew was to blame for the controversies that have engulfed the Biden clan, Owens says no.
She explained that it was as if Hunter had entered hell. He didn’t wake up one morning and say, “I’m going to become an addict. She commended him for his “courage” and “strength” in overcoming his crack cocaine and alcohol addictions, respectively.
