During the interview this Sunday, released two days before his biography, entitled “Beautiful Things”, Hunter returned to talk about his struggle with drugs and alcohol, especially after his brother eldest, Beau, died of brain cancer in 2015.
“I spent more time on my hands and knees searching the carpets, smoking anything that remotely resembled crack. I probably smoked more Parmesan cheese than anyone you know, I’m sure,” confessed Hunter, who admitted that he was once “13 days without sleeping, and smoking crack and drinking vodka exclusively all that time. “
Back then, he recalled, his father intervened.
“He came to my apartment once,” Hunter recounted, noting that by then Joe Biden “was in the position of vice president” of Barack Obama (2009-2017).
“He got rid of his Secret Service, he managed to get to the house,” Hunter said. “And I said, ‘What are you doing here?’ He said, ‘Baby, what are you doing?’ I said, ‘Dad, I’m fine.’ He said, ‘You’re not fine.’
Biden’s son, who was one of the favorite political targets of former President Donald Trump and his entourage in recent years, indicated that he talks to his father every night.
“We talk at least every night,” he said and stressed that the current ruler not only communicates with him but with each of his granddaughters and his daughter every day.
“He’s always done that. I mean always. He’s talked to each one of us. But I’ll tell you why: because he lost. Because he, like me, knows what it’s like to not be able to pick up the phone and talk to your son.” , Held.
Hunter is the second child from President Biden’s first marriage, who lost his first wife and daughter in an accident in 1972 and then his firstborn in 2015.
