This is so strange.
Hunter, the son of President Joe Biden, faced allegations of entering the White House without proper documentation after a Fox News White House Correspondent, Peter Doocy, observed him disembarking from Marine One. This incident occurred on Tuesday when the helicopter transported President Biden back from Delaware. Despite the official list of passengers provided to the press, Hunter was not included.
As Marine One took off at 9:50 a.m. ET, the White House had indicated that the accompanying individuals were Deputy Chief of Staff Jen O’Malley Dillon, Oval Office Operations Director Annie Tomasini, and Anthony Bernal, senior adviser to first lady Jill Biden. Notably absent from this list was Hunter.
The helicopter landed at the White House at 10:41 a.m. ET, where President Biden briefly stopped before heading to the funeral of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. During this time, Hunter Biden’s presence raised questions, as he was not officially listed among the passengers. The incident was highlighted by Fox News correspondent Jacqui Heinrich, who remarked on the potential complications arising from the president distancing himself from Hunter’s ongoing legal issues.
Hunter has been at the center of controversy, with House Republicans leveraging his foreign business dealings to push for an impeachment inquiry into his father. Despite facing a congressional subpoena and multiple legal challenges, Hunter was observed at the White House, contributing to the ongoing scrutiny. The situation has added to the challenges faced by the White House and the Democratic Party, prompting concerns about its impact on the Biden administration’s public relations. Even former press secretary Jen Psaki acknowledged the potential PR challenges, expressing a desire for Hunter to refrain from making public statements that could further complicate matters for the Biden family. The House GOP swiftly seized on Doocy’s reporting, sharing the Fox News segment and raising questions about other instances where Hunter may have been omitted from official records.
