In an unexpected twist that has puzzled many White House staffers, Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, has begun regularly attending high-level meetings with his father and top aides. This development comes on the heels of President Biden’s gaffe-filled debate performance against Donald Trump, prompting some insiders to question the rationale behind Hunter’s sudden involvement.

Hunter Biden’s reappearance in the political scene has sparked a flurry of reactions. One insider revealed that Hunter has been closely advising his father and has made appearances in several significant meetings and phone calls since the family returned from a weekend at Camp David. This sudden integration into the White House’s inner workings has reportedly taken many senior staff members by surprise. One source remarked, “What the hell is happening?”

According to RadarOnline, Andrew Bates, White House senior deputy press secretary, confirmed, “Hunter came back with the President from their family weekend at Camp David and went with the President straight into speech prep.” This push from Hunter follows his recent conviction on three federal gun charges related to his past struggle with crack cocaine addiction. He is also under indictment for tax-related felonies, further complicating his public image.

After his conviction, Hunter released a statement expressing gratitude. As per NBC News, he said, “I am more grateful today for the love and support I experienced this last week from Melissa, my family, my friends, and my community than I am disappointed by the outcome. Recovery is possible by the grace of God, and I am blessed to experience that gift one day at a time.” However, his attorney Abbe Lowell was appalled by the verdict, stating, “We are naturally disappointed by today’s verdict. We will continue to vigorously pursue all the legal challenges available to Hunter.”

President Joe Biden also released a statement supporting Hunter, noting, “As I said last week, I am the President, but I am also a Dad. Jill and I love our son, and we are so proud of the man he is today. So many families who have had loved ones battle addiction understand the feeling of pride seeing someone you love come out the other side and be so strong and resilient in recovery.”

He further added, “As I also said last week, I will accept the outcome of this case and will continue to respect the judicial process as Hunter considers an appeal. Jill and I will always be there for Hunter and the rest of our family with our love and support. Nothing will ever change that.” It’s important to note that while President Biden has the power to pardon his son, he has stated in an interview that he will not do so.
