Like father, like son … not.
Joe Biden may have delivered the eulogy for two of his fellow senators, Robert Byrd and Ernest Hollings, who happened to be white supremacists. And, sure, Biden may have sought in his 1993 crime bill to rid the streets of “young people, tens of thousands of them, born out of wedlock, without parents, without supervision, without any structure, without any conscience developing because they literally have not been socialized.” But at least he hasn’t used the n-word.
The same, regrettably, cannot be said of his son Hunter, who in text messages with his attorney used the slur multiple times. As reported by the Daily Mail:
The president’s son joked in a January 2019 text to corporate attorney George Mesires about a ‘big penis’, and said to the lawyer: ‘I only love you because you’re black’ and ‘true dat n***a’.
Mesires doesn’t happen to be black, and Hunter was using the granddaddy of racial taboos in what might be termed “rapper mode,” so perhaps (no doubt?) it will be glossed over by the legacy media and ignored altogether by the White House.
It must nevertheless embarrassing for the senior Biden to have to tolerate yet another slip-up by his profligate son, especially coming as it does on the heels of his “speech decrying racism on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa massacre.”
