Hunter Biden Appeared To Include A Pointed Message For Donald Trump’s Children In His New Book

That's a lot of shade.

Donald Trump and his Republican allies launched a smear campaign on Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, during the presidential campaign. And it was rather odd since Trump surrounded himself with family members in his administration, yet President Biden has not put his son in any official capacity. Junior has repeatedly targeted Biden’s son, saying he wished he was Hunter because, he said, “I could go abroad and make millions off my father’s presidency. I’d be a really rich guy.” Don Jr. and his gal-pal just bought a $9.7 million mansion in Florida, by the way. That wouldn’t have been possible if he wasn’t a Trump.

Hunter Biden threw some well-deserved shade on Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. in his new book, ‘Beautiful Things,’ according to Vanity Fair.

“Hunter Biden decided to address the issue in his new memoir, Beautiful Things,” Bess Levin writes. “While the book largely focuses on his struggles with substance abuse and the death of his brother, Beau Biden, the younger Biden son begins by referencing Team Trump’s attacks on him for the work he did abroad “even as [Trump’s] own children had pocketed millions in China and Russia.”


“At one point, he calls out Don Jr. and Eric for getting rich solely thanks to their dad, whereas Hunter writes, “I’ve worked for someone other than my father, rose and fell on my own.” While acknowledging his own privilege—“there’s no question my last name was a coveted credential,” he says—he takes aim at the ex-president‘s adult children for suggesting they‘re self-made individuals who didn’t reap the benefits of their family name,” the report continues.

“Do you think if any of the Trump children ever tried to get a job outside of their father’s business that his name wouldn’t figure into the calculation? My response has always been to work harder so that my accomplishments stand on their own,” he writes.


We’re pretty sure that Trump’s adult children don’t know what hard work is. And while Hunter Biden is a recovering drug addict, Donald Trump Jr. appears to be actively taking something. But, at least Junior is good at something: projection. I think that’s a family trait.
