The decade's most triggering comedy
President Joe Biden finally addressed and acknowledged his seventh grandchild in a Friday night news dump exclusive with PEOPLE Magazine after four years of refusing to do so.
“Our son Hunter and Navy’s mother, Lunden, are working together to foster a relationship that is in the best interests of their daughter, preserving her privacy as much as possible going forward,” Biden said in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE.
Lunden is the former stripper whom Hunter impregnated and then put through a lengthy legal battle to lower his child support payments and take away the Biden family name. Throughout Biden’s presidency, he has repeatedly claimed that he only had six grandchildren, despite Navy’s existence.
A source told PEOPLE that the Bidens were simply following Hunter’s lead.
“You have to remember there were some fairly contentious legal proceedings between Navy’s parents happening until just a few weeks ago. As grandparents, the Bidens are following Hunter’s lead,” the anonymous source told the magazine. “They are — and have been — giving Hunter and Lunden the space and time to figure things out.”
Based on that, Hunter apparently told them to pretend his daughter does not exist.
Of course, it seems more likely that Legacy Media’s newfound criticism of Biden is what forced the president to change his tune.
For example, New York Times opinion columnist Maureen Dowd wrote, “The president’s cold shoulder — and heart — is counter to every message he has sent for decades, and it’s out of sync with the America he wants to continue to lead.”
In other words, he was exposed as a fraud. This was already obvious to everybody except those in Legacy Media and their readers — but better late than never.
Biden maintains that his decision to pretend she never existed was not political.
“This is not a political issue, it’s a family matter,” Biden said. “Jill and I only want what is best for all of our grandchildren, including Navy.”
Just not the family name, apparently.
They finally recognized their youngest granddaughter in an online article at 5:00 p.m. ET on a summer Friday night right before Joe heads to the beach? Classy bunch, those Bidens.
