I’ll be up-front and honest, Beau Biden was the favorite son. He’s the one who was being groomed for higher office.
Just like Ron DeSantis, the younger Biden first got a law degree from a somewhat prestigious Northern university (Syracuse), do a stint in the military (both were assigned to the JAG), then get elected to at least a state-wide office.
But as everyone already knows, Beau Biden passed away in 2015 from brain cancer. That left Team Biden with only crackhead Hunter.
Perhaps trying to legitimize Hunter, Team Biden got not only an age waiver, but also a drug waiver to secure him a US Navy Reserve commission as a public relations officer. Hunter didn’t even finish his first “weekend duty.” Of course, he was tested positive for cocaine use.
With all that aside, Slow Joe just can’t help but continuously lie about his eldest being killed during the Iraq War.
As reported by Terresa Monroe-Hamilton of BizPacReview.com (emphasis mine);
“The 20-year-old Marine was one of 13 military personnel tragically killed in the disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal ordered by Biden in 2021. Rex delivered a fiery speech full of anger, loss, and tears, about the horrific day at the Kabul airport that not only took her son’s life and 12 others but the lives of 169 Afghan civilians.”
“Her fury was palpable as she vented her outrage over Biden claiming that his son had come home from Iraq in a coffin draped by an American flag just as her son did. That was a blatant lie and the mother knew it, being familiar with the details of Beau Biden’s death.”
“When Joe Biden, our elected president, entered the room, when he approached me, his words to me were, ‘My wife Jill and I know how you feel. We lost our son as well and brought him home in a flag-draped coffin,’” Rex recounted. “My heart started beating faster and I started shaking, knowing that their son died from cancer and they were able to be by his side.”
“The devastated mother could not wrap her head around Biden pulling such a callous stunt. She recalled “wondering how someone could honestly — sorry — be so heartless to say he knew how I felt a little over 24 hours in learning of my son’s death.”
Cheryl Rex, Dylan Merola’s mom:
Biden was “heartless” when he told her he knows how she felt. Biden has never said her son’s name.
“If they had closed the gate, my son would be alive today.”
