Joe Biden admitted to a battle with addiction in newly released text messages to his son Hunter, the Daily Mail revealed.
Five members of the Biden clan have spent time in rehab for drug and alcohol abuse.
- Hunter Biden has struggled with alcohol and crack addictions
- Hallie, Beau’s widow (and Hunter’s girlfriend) struggled with a crack problem
- Joe’s daughter Ashley has struggled with alcohol and had to seek treatment
- Joe’s slimy brother Frank has battled alcohol addiction and was ordered by a judge to go to rehab after a drunk driving offense in 2004
- Joe’s niece Caroline Biden was also ordered to rehab after a DUI
Joe Biden messaged Hunter in 2018 comforting (enabling) him while he was in California spending a Father’s Day in rehab away from the family.
“It’s a disease from mommy and me” Biden said in a 2018 text message to Hunter Biden.
Other text messages retrieved from Hunter’s laptop reveal Joe Biden paid for a portion of Hallie’s rehab which cost more than $100,000.
Although Joe Biden does not currently drink alcohol, the text messages further confirm his family to be highly dysfunctional and gripped by anger, rage and addiction.
The Daily Mail reported:
Five members of Joe Biden’s close family have been to rehab for drug or alcohol abuse, DailyMail.com can reveal.
The president’s brother Frank, children Hunter and Ashley, his niece Caroline and his late son’s widow who also became Hunter’s lover, Hallie, have all suffered from addiction issues and had spells in treatment centers – some at the orders of a judge.
In text messages to Hunter, Joe even referred to his son’s addiction as a ‘disease from mommy and me.’
But texts on the laptop also reveal that Hallie Biden, his brother Beau’s widow who became his lover after Beau died of brain cancer in 2015, has been to rehab four times, costing over $100,000, some of it allegedly paid for by Joe Biden.
Text messages also show Ashley Biden warning her brother Hunter against dating their dead brother’s widow Hallie.
Ashley referred to Hallie as “the most selfish, self absorbed, idiotic woman I know,” and blamed her for Hunter’s drug addiction.
“I will never look at Hallie again. She is truly the most selfish, self absorbed, idiotic woman I know. You + I used to talk about it all the time,’ Ashley said in a text to Hunter while revealing Beau’s marriage to Hallie was rocky.
If Trump was texting Don Jr about addiction being a disease in the Trump family, the media would be reporting on it 24/7.
