Hunter Biden smoked crack 'round the clock & drank quart of vodka a DAY' and 'needed to get high' during 2020 race
HUNTER Biden reportedly smoked crack "round the clock and drank a quart of vodka a day" and "needed to get high" during his dad's 2020 race.
The president's 51-year-old son admitted that he slipped into a "blur of complete debauchery" as a young adult.
"Drinking a quart of vodka a day by yourself is absolutely completely debilitating… smoking crack around the clock, drinking insanely lethal amounts of alcohol," he said.
But despite believing that he became a liability to Joe's presidential campaign and a laughing stock for the Trump campaign, this did not stop his addiction.
"It didn't change my behavior – I still needed to get high and hide and fill that hole," he said.
Speaking more about his struggle with addiction, Hunter admitted that he even smoked Parmesan cheese after mistaking it for crack cocaine.
He said: "I spent more time on my hands and knees picking through rugs smoking anything that resembled crack cocaine.
"I probably smoked more Parmesan cheese than anyone – than anyone you know Tracy."
He then told interviewer Tracy Smith: "I once went 13 days without sleeping and smoking crack and drinking vodka exclusively throughout that entire time."
Hunter said that he "never" thought his dad Joe would "give up on me."
The comments came just days after Hunter broke down as he recalled his dad Joe chasing him down the driveway in a drug intervention.
"I tried to go to my car, and my girls literally blocked the door to my car, and said: 'Dad, Dad, please. You can't. No, no'."
It is likely that the girls he was referring to are his daughters Naomi, 27, Finnegan, 21 and Maisy, 20.
"[He] grabbed me — gave a bear hug, and he said — and just cried, and said — 'I don't know what to do. I don't know what to do. Please'," Hunter said.
"I thought: 'I need to figure out a way to tell him that I'm gonna do something, so that I can go take another hit'."
"It's the only thing I could think. Literally. That's how powerful. I don't know of a force more powerful than my family's love, except addiction," he said.
In the interview Hunter also addresses last year's laptop scandal, somewhat disputing the claims, suggesting "there could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me."
"It could be that I was hacked. It could be that it was the — that it was Russian intelligence."
He reiterated that he does not know if the computer was his, insisting: "For real! I don't know!"
Biden's laptop was the subject of a media storm, after the New York Post published a "smoking-gun" email that it alleged reveals how Hunter Biden introduced his father to a Ukrainian businessman, Vadym Pozharskyi, when Joe Biden was Vice President.
The laptop is also reported to contain a 12-minute video that appears to show Hunter smoking crack while engaged in a sex act with an unidentified woman, as well as numerous other sexually explicit images.
The New York Post's report claims that emails obtained, in part, suggested that Joe, at his son's request, met with Pozharskyi, in April 2015 in Washington DC.
Both Bidens have denied any wrongdoing, and Joe's campaign denied the alleged meeting with Burisma boss Vadym Pozharskyi ever occurred.
Hunter has also been under fire recently concerning an incident on October 23, 2018 when Hallie Biden – who was married to the late Beau Biden – threw Hunter's gun in the trash behind a grocery store and returned later to find it was gone.
Citing a police report, Politico reported that Delaware cops were forced to investigate because it happened across from a high school and they were worried it could be used in a crime.
Secret service agents asked the store owner where Hunter bought the gun for paperwork involving the sale, a person with firsthand knowledge of the incident and another briefed by an agent told the publication.
The store owner Ron Palmieri, refused, they said, and gave the papers to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives later.
The Secret Service and Joe Biden said they have no knowledge of agents investigating it.
People familiar with the situation reportedly said the gun was returned by a man who regularly rummages through the trash and the bizarre situation didn't end in any charges or arrests.
A Firearms Transaction Record and a receipt for the gun dated October 12, 2018 were obtained by the publication.
When asked: “Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?” Hunter said "no." Lying on this form is a felony.
Biden's son was discharged from the Navy for using cocaine five years earlier and his family have spoken out about his substance abuse battle.
