In a new twist, it seems that the negative press surrounding Hunter Biden has finally gotten under President Joe Biden’s thin skin. The poor guy just can’t catch a break these days, can he? According to sources in the White House, President Biden is fed up with all the suggestions that he should distance himself from his troubled son. In fact, he’s telling his aides, in no uncertain terms, to keep their hands off his family.
It’s not going to get any better😬 https://t.co/kr7d3pxRpZ

“It’s consumed him,” a close associate of the president lamented. One can only imagine the toll it must take on a man to constantly defend his son’s questionable choices. But don’t worry, folks, the president’s loyal political and legal advisers are doing their best to navigate this delicate situation. They’re torn between their natural instinct to protect their boss and the realization that Hunter’s public profile might not be helping dear old dad’s chances for re-election. You know, common sense stuff.
But here’s where it gets interesting. Whenever someone tries to bring up the touchy subject, President Biden reacts with a mix of defensiveness and anger. He’s not interested in any suggestions to keep Hunter at arm’s length. Nope, not one bit. In fact, after Hunter’s guilty verdict, the president even invited him to join him at a state dinner. How’s that for standing by your son?
And if that weren’t enough, President Biden has been quite combative with reporters who have the audacity to ask about his involvement in Hunter’s shady business deals. He’s been yelling at them, folks. Yelling! I guess he’s really passionate about protecting his son’s reputation. Can’t blame him for that. But seriously, can we all agree that shouting down reporters just reeks of transparency and accountability?
To make matters worse, recent polls have shown that President Biden is trailing none other than former President Donald Trump. You heard that right, folks. The same Trump who is so popular in the GOP primary that he might just skip the first debate. The president’s unwavering support for his son may come at a steep political price. But hey, who needs popularity when you have familial loyalty, right?
So there you have it, folks. President Biden is grappling with the weight of his son’s troubles, throwing tantrums at any suggestion to distance himself, and risking his own political future in the process. It’s a tough spot to be in, but hey, that’s what you get for defending someone who has found themselves in a heap of legal trouble. Good luck, Mr. President. You’re gonna need it.
