Joe Biden isn‚Äôt very forthcoming with press conferences, but he‚Äôs always happy to do an interview with a friendly source, which could include just about anybody in mainstream media. Cardi B, the rapper who had talked politics with Bernie Sanders at a nail salon, sat down and had a virtual chat with Biden, and the topic of children and grandchildren came up.
As the Washington Examiner pointed out, Jill Biden, during a virtual town hall in April, said that she and her husband have six grandchildren. That was just a week after Joe Biden had told Jimmy Fallon he had five grandchildren ‚ÄĒ he apparently forgot about the one born in March. And he‚Äôs also continuing to omit the grandchild son Hunter Biden fathered with an Arkansas woman and fought with in court over child support after refusing to take a paternity test.
The Fallon appearance was back in April, and now it‚Äôs August, and Biden told Cardi B that he has five grandchildren.
Joe Biden told Cardi B this morning he has five grand kids.

But seriously: Obviously he doesn‚Äôt want to talk about it, but we‚Äôve never heard any acknowledgment whatsoever of the child Hunter Biden had with that Arkansas woman, other than telling a reporter he was ‚Äúclassy‚ÄĚ for asking about it. Team Trump is counting the child, though.

This is difficult to watch.

If they don‚Äôt vote for him they are not his grand kids.

He has a granddaughter he has never seen.

He probably gets confused because he‚Äôs not sure how many of Hunter‚Äôs kids with strippers he should include in the count.

Maybe the other two are with Hunter, where's Hunter?

On a serious note, refusing to acknowledge the existence of a grandchild because of the embarrassing circumstance of their conception is worse than any character flaw of Trump. Without question.

It is pretty low, and Jill does it too. If it might hurt the campaign, just ignore it. It‚Äôs just your son‚Äôs baby.
It‚Äôs concerning that he will most likely step down for health reasons if he wins and guess who will be in charge? ūüėģūüėģūüėģ

To be fair, he does have five‚Ä¶ and the other two.

If he has 7, it means having 5 is also correct.

Can we just get to the debates and have some serious questions asked about policy?
