Just days after a series of new indictments, Hunter Biden blasted his critics as “motherf–kers,” claiming that he was the victim and that Republicans were trying to kill him to destroy his father’s presidency.
Biden appeared on an episode of the “Moby Pod” podcast, which was released on Friday and was recorded in Hunter’s art studio in San Francisco. The discussion, which lasted over an hour, turned at one point to Biden’s recovery from drug addiction and his open discussion of his struggles in his memoir, “Beautiful Things.”
Podcast co-host Lindsay Hicks told Biden that there was “real beauty” in how “vulnerable” he was in the memoir by sharing intimate details of his addiction, noting that others may read it and feel they don’t have to be ashamed of their secrets.
“That’s the one thing — one of the reasons why I’m going to survive this — and I’m going to survive it clean and sober — is because I am not going to let these motherf–kers use me as just another example of why people in recovery are never going to be okay, never to be trusted, they’re all degenerates. I’m just not going to let that happen. I’m just not going to let it happen,” Biden said.
He then agreed with the hosts’ opinion that Republicans were addicted to inflicting their own hurt on other people.
“I absolutely am positive of that. If you can’t look at some of these people like Marjorie Taylor Greene or Paul Gosar and see someone that have been bullied, that are just absolutely suffering— They’re suffering people. And that doesn’t excuse the things that they have done to others and to me, but you see people that are in anguish. They’re not healthy people,” Biden said.
He claimed that the people going after him were trying to end his life with the ultimate goal of hurting his father and his father’s presidency.
“They are trying to destroy a presidency. And so, it’s not about me. In their most base way, what they’re trying to do is they’re trying to kill me, knowing that it will be a pain greater than my father could be able to handle. And so, therefore, destroying a presidency in that way,” he said.
“These people are just sad, very, very sick people, that have most likely just faced traumas in their lives that they have decided they’re going to turn into an evil that they decided they’re going to inflict on the rest of the world,” he added.
Biden blamed former President Donald Trump for the “underlying sickness” facing the country, claiming he “gave voice” to feelings of rage and made it okay to express that. He later dismissed the idea of the “Biden Crime Family,” arguing that claims of corruption within his family were refuted by the decades they had been in the public light.
“Think about this, okay? My dad has been a senator since I was two years old. He has released decades-worth of his tax returns. He has lived in the public light. We have lived in the public light. We have gone through four presidential campaigns. My entire life has been before the public. It took until, oh, low and behold, Donald Trump figured out that somehow this is a criminal enterprise,” he joked.
Less than a day after the podcast’s release, Biden was indicted on nine counts for allegedly neglecting to file and pay taxes between 2016 and 2019, totaling in value at approximately $1.4 million.
