HAUNTED BY HUNTER? POTUS Aides Worry Son's Trial Could Break Joe; Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.16.24

According to a Politico report, aides close to President Biden are worried about his mental state as First Son Hunter Biden’s first criminal trial for felony gun charges approaches.

From Politico:

Three advisers granted anonymity to speak about private deliberations said they, and members of the First Family, are worried about the weight Hunter Biden’s trial will place on the president at an already difficult time for him politically. Biden has expressed fears to them about the possibility that his son will serve time in prison.

“He worries about Hunter every single day, from the moment he wakes up to the moment he goes to sleep,” said one of the three advisers. “That will only pick up during a trial.”

The possibility of a reprieve vanished Tuesday when a judge rejected a last-ditch request to postpone the case.

The president himself has long been kept apprised of his son’s legal fights. He checks on him every day — usually with a call, sometimes by a text. The advisers say that will continue through the trial.

But there is a gingerness among the president’s team about how to approach the matter. With few exceptions, White House aides don’t bring up the subject of Hunter Biden with the president, for fear of an angry rebuke or an icy stare, according to two of those people familiar with the president’s reactions. All spoke only on condition of anonymity to describe the personal elements of the presidency.

They anticipate that Biden will watch some of the media coverage of the trial. (The proceedings will not be televised.) But there is little-to-no appetite among his aides to discuss ways to politically manage it, even as the reelection campaign accelerates into a crucial phase. The president has told close allies that he is deeply proud of his son and confident in his sobriety.
