Scandal-hit Hunter Biden may well be POTUS's closest advisor, and that's a worry, say insiders
President Joe Biden on Wednesday announced his intent to nominate at least six experienced individuals to serve as key leaders in his administration. But a new revelation by an unnamed source that the President's closest adviser is actually his scandal-hit son Hunter Biden, has left many people concerned.
According to a New York Post report, the “smartest man” Joe Biden knows is Hunter. The report claims that Hunter discusses the finer points of Ukraine policy and other matters of state around the dinner table with his father on his regular weekend visits home to Delaware or Camp David.
Not just that. Hunter has also — on several occasions — boasted about the political influence he wields over his father. “He’s going to talk about drug reform and any other thing that I want him to [Joe Biden] thinks I’m a god,” Hunter said in a hitherto unpublished voice recording from an iPhone backup on his abandoned laptop, the report claims. The audio file, which was recorded in Newburyport, Mass., on Dec 3, 2018, was allegedly procured by NY Post from nonprofit research group Marco Polo.
He also allegedly boasted to his former business partner, Tony Bobulinski, by the pool of the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood in April 2017, that he had his father’s ear and got him to do what he wanted by bypassing his gatekeepers and speaking to him directly.
In the audio clip from 2018, Hunter is also heard telling Phillipa Horan, a British artist, that his father (Biden) "respects me more than he respects anyone in the world." Hunter met Horan at a dinner in LA in mid-2018 through his girlfriend Zoe Kestan, a lingerie designer who goes by the online handle “weed slut 420” and who appeared before the Delaware grand jury in February.
"If I say this is important to me, then he will work a way in which to make it a part of his platform... My dad respects me more than he respects anyone in the world, and I know that to be certain, so it’s not going to be about whether it affects his politics.”
Hunter also boasts about how he plans to capitalize on the notoriety “if my dad becomes president . . .
“I was on the front page of every f–king newspaper including The Wall Street Journal and New York Times
“I believe that’s an opportunity to say the things and show the things and reveal the things through this project that we want to reveal . . . because you will have attention.
“I have figured out if you are going to be involved in politics the way that I am, which is to choose to engage with my father in that life because I believe in what he does . . . then one of your obligations is to use that platform with intent, is to not allow the platform to sit on top of you.”
In the audio clip, Horan allegedly poses personal questions to Hunter about his addiction and his family for an art project they are planning. Hunter previously had described the project to another friend in a text message: “We have been collaborating for the past four months on a work of art for lack of a better term . . . I had an idea for a book, series of books, a zine, it was a pretty loose concept with a very focused intent . . . about the universal truth of our . . . need to be, remain, feel, desire, achieve connection . . . through words, written, spoken, felt across and through a multiple of mediums.”
In May this year, a New York Times report claimed that Hunter had turned to Kevin Morris, a wealthy entertainment attorney, who helped him pay off $2 million in overdue taxes.
Morris who is known among close friends as Hunter's 'sugar brother' also helps him maintain a grand lifestyle — he reportedly takes care of Hunter's $20,000 rent in Malibu and has also been advising him on how to structure his art sales.
Morris also represents Hollywood actor Matthew McConaughey, and people are now questioning if Hunter had a role to play in the actor's starring role at the White House podium this week to urge gun control in the wake of the Uvalde school massacre.
