The decade's most triggering comedy

The woman who bore Hunter Biden’s child out-of-wedlock, ex-stripper Lunden Alexis Roberts, has demanded the former vice president’s son be held in contempt for continuing to defy court orders and failing to care for his child.
“[Hunter Biden] continues to act as though he has no respect for this Court, its orders, the legal process in this state, or the needs of his child for support,” argues Roberts’ legal team in the court filing before demanding that the court “take some action that will make the defendant follow court orders and a believer in the rule of law.”
Fox News detailed the charges brought forth by Roberts and her attorneys:
Specifically, Biden has not turned over information concerning his address, financial institutions he or his businesses use, a list of all the companies he “currently owns or in which he has an ownership interest and the state in which those companies are incorporated,” or a list of “all sources of income for the past five years.”
Additionally, Biden has failed to produce a list of all “employers for the past five years,” an unredacted copy of his tax returns, deeds for properties he owns, and tax documents for companies in which he has any ownership interest.
The previous judge in the case, Don McSpadden, said in December that Biden was “going to have to provide at least the last three years of tax returns.” A Dec. 4 court order required Biden to turn over at a minimum “five most recent paystubs or five previous years” of tax returns; and a later order mandated both sides provide “their personal tax returns for the past five years; and … any and all financial documents and information showing money or monies they received in the past five years.”
Though Hunter Biden has agreed to pay an undisclosed amount in monthly child support, Independence County Circuit Court Judge Holly Meyer, who now oversees the case, said that she cannot accurately determine the proper dollar amount without “sufficient information” regarding Hunter Biden’s finances. He will be appearing for a deposition on March 11.
The filing comes several months after Roberts filed court documents demanding that Hunter Biden reveal the amount of money earned while working with Burisma – the Ukrainian energy firm where he allegedly earned as much as $50,000 a month between April 2014 and April 2019. Should Hunter Biden reveal his exact earnings, it could shed some serious light on former Vice President Joe Biden’s personal involvement in his son’s dealings, according to Republican National Committee (RNC) spokesman Steve Guest.
“After months of hiding, one has to wonder if the reason Hunter Biden continues to defy the court is because there are financial documents that could shed light on his father’s massive conflicts of interest as vice president,” Guest said on Fox News Sunday.
Former Vice President Joe Biden has largely ducked the controversy regarding his grandchild and even expressed hostility to a reporter who dared ask him about it.
“Do you have a comment on this report and court filing out of Arkansas that your son Hunter just made you a grandfather?” Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked Biden previously.
“No, that’s a private matter, I have no comment,” Biden responded. “But only you would ask that. You’re a good man. You’re a good man. Classy.”
