Hunter Biden Wanted Trump to Attack Him During Presidential Debate

'They handed me a gift to show everyone exactly who my dad was as a parent...'

Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, said he hoped former president Donald Trump would attack him over his long history with drug addiction and marital infidelity during last year’s presidential debates.

“The one thing that I was hoping for was that attack from Donald Trump, because I knew my dad would answer from his heart,” Hunter Biden said during a recent appearance on Donny Deutsch’s podcast. 

“And I knew that my dad would answer in a way that would speak to the millions and millions of people that have somebody that they love, or they themselves, that has suffered from the disease of addiction,” he added.

Trump did bring up Hunter Biden’s shady past during one of the debates.

“Hunter got thrown out of the military,” Trump said. “He was thrown out, dishonorably discharged, for cocaine use.”

Joe Biden shot back: “My son, like a lot of people, like a lot of people you know at home, had a drug problem. He’s overtaken it, he’s fixed it, he’s worked on it, and I’m proud of him.”

Hunter Biden said Trump’s attacks on him were a “gift” for his father’s presidential campaign.

“I knew in that instant that they handed me a gift to show everyone exactly who my dad was as a parent,” he said. “My dad didn’t say that my addiction was an excuse for anything.”

Hunter Biden recently wrote a memoir about his history with drug and alcohol abuse.

He said at one point in his life, he used to search for crack cocaine in the carpet.

“I spent more time on my hands and knees picking through rugs, smoking anything that even remotely resembled crack cocaine. I probably smoked more parmesan cheese than anyone,” he said. “I went one time for 13 days without sleeping, and smoking crack and drinking vodka throughout that entire time.”
