Freshly indicted First Son Hunter Biden believes his father’s political rivals are aware of his struggles with addiction and are trying to kill him.
The 53-year-old businessman scion, who has been under investigation throughout his father’s presidency, was hit with nine tax charges Thursday in California. He also faces a gun charge in Delaware and possible prison time.
On the latest episode of the “Moby Pod” podcast, Biden claimed the attacks against him are part of an ongoing effort to “undermine” the president.
“They decided that the one way in which they would be able to certainly just undermine my dad’s confidence and ability to continue to campaign and move forward, particularly after the death of my brother [was] to [make him] think that he could lose his son that he just had regained from an almost-death, through addiction,” Biden told rockstar Moby, whom he met in rehab. “You know, addiction provides for a lot of openings for people.”
President Biden has frequently spoken about the 2015 death of his son Beau Biden, who battled brain cancer after fighting in Iraq and serving as Delaware’s attorney general. The president has also said he’s “proud” of his younger son, whose debaucherous exploits have been made public in recent years thanks to photos apparently recovered from an abandoned laptop that show Biden using drugs and cavorting with questionable characters.
“As long as my dad is president of the United States, they’re not going to stop,” Biden said.
Even though his father has been in politics as long as he can remember, Biden said he’s never seen anything like the “never-ending hurricane” he has personally experienced during his dad’s presidency. That includes regular appearances on tabloid newspaper covers and cable news channels that are never positive. He also said MAGA supporters with bullhorns protested outside his home while his wife was in the third trimester of a pregnancy.
Moby asked Biden how he copes with all that attention.
“To be completely honest, it’s a struggle,” he confessed, adding that “this week was really hard… really hard to keep it cool.”
According to Biden, as his troubles mount, he’s literally in a do-or-die situation.
“There’s no doubt in my mind — and this might sound like some crazy hyperbole — that they’re trying to kill me through other means, and I just won’t let them,” he said.
