The internal polling and focus groups must have been brutal. So “Grandpa” Joe tossed Hunter’s daughter Navy a verbal bone during an interview with People magazine. Just a bone, mentioning her name, nothing more.
Joe Biden wouldn’t even acknowledge the existence of his granddaughter Navy, via Hunter, for years. Not even after he repeatedly was criticized for such a cold-hearted and cruel attitude.
But we’re entering an election year, his popularity is low, and the internal polling and focus groups must have been brutal. The false narrative of loving Grandpa Joe, concocted for the 2020 election, couldn’t last when he ignored the existence of a poltically inconvenient grandaughter. A granddaughter not even allowed to use the Biden name.
So ‘Grandpa’ Joe finally tossed Navy a verbal bone during an interview with People magazine. He mentioned her name.
NBC News reports:
President Joe Biden on Friday publicly acknowledged his seventh grandchild for the first time, while adding that his granddaughter Navy is “not a political issue.”
In a statement first reported by People that was obtained by NBC News, Biden said that he and first lady Jill Biden wanted the best for all of their grandchildren, “including Navy.”
“Our son Hunter and Navy’s mother, Lunden, are working together to foster a relationship that is in the best interests of their daughter, preserving her privacy as much as possible going forward,” the president said. “This is not a political issue, it’s a family matter. Jill and I only want what is best for all of our grandchildren, including Navy.”
First time he’s mentioned her. First time he’s acknowledged her. Just a bone, mentioning her name, nothing more.
And there was a convenient “source famililar with the situation” to shift the blame from Joe to Hunter for the People story:
A source familiar with the situation tells PEOPLE that the recently resolved child support dispute between Hunter and Lunden has dictated how the relationship has played out so far.
You could have given them space without denying the existence of your grandchild.
Very cold people. No matter how they portray themselves.
At least Joe acknowledges other people’s grandchildren.DONATE
