During a recent “Take Your Child to Work Day” event at the White House, the Biden bungled an answer about his grandchildren, claiming to only have six when in reality he has seven.
Biden was asked a question by one of the children at the event and began to answer it by saying that he has six grandchildren. He then went on to name each grandchild, starting with his oldest and ending with his youngest, three-year-old Beau, who was named after his late son.
What the President failed to mention is that he has a seventh grandchild – four-year-old Navy, who is the daughter of his son Hunter Biden and former stripper Lunden Roberts. Navy lives in Arkansas with her mother and has been embroiled in a legal battle with Hunter over paternity payments.
This is a huge oversight on Biden’s part, given that he has long preached about how we should treat all children as our own and how there is “no such thing as someone else’s child”.
It’s also made worse by the fact that Hunter is currently living at his father’s home to avoid being served legal papers in the case against Roberts.
It’s clear that Biden is trying to sweep the existence of his seventh grandchild under the rug, and it’s a shame that he’s not willing to take responsibility for his son’s actions.

Not only does this show a lack of accountability and empathy on his part, but it also goes against everything he has said about treating all children equally and with respect.
It’s unfortunate that Biden has chosen to ignore his seventh grandchild and instead focus on his six other grandchildren. This decision is not only hypocritical, but it also sends a damaging message to the millions of young people who look up to him. We can only hope that in the future, Biden will be more transparent and honest about his family, and that he will take responsibility for his son’s actions.
