The presidential campaign of former Vice President Joe Biden has been largely hijacked by controversies surrounding his son, Hunter Biden.
The elder Biden not only pulled strings to get Hunter a job working for a Ukrainian gas company, but then forced a quid-pro-quo when that gas company came under legal scrutiny. Threatening to withhold aid from the Ukraine government, Biden demanded that they fire a prosecutor investigating the company which employed his son.

This, however, is only the tip of the iceberg. Weeks ago, Americans learned that Hunter Biden fathered a love child with a stripper, despite being newly remarried. The news came after Hunter spent a good amount of time lying to the press and denying his paternity to the stripper’s son.
Yesterday, Biden posted a family photo on Twitter and wished everyone a Merry Christmas; Hunter, however, was absent from the image and it didn’t take long for Americans to notice this.
Reviewing the Biden Family Photo
In the former vice president’s family image, he can be seen with his wife and other surrounding relatives. Biden captioned the photo by encouraging Americans to experience “peace, laughter, and joy” with the ones they love.
See for yourself:
Twitter users immediately noticed the absence of Hunter, his new wife, and his son. This, in turn, prompted a series of responding tweets that inquired as to the whereabouts of the most controversial Biden child.
Of course, the 2020 Democrat declined to answer or acknowledge why Hunter is missing from the 2019 Christmas photo. Still, the responses to Biden’s image are truly in a class of their own.
See some of them for yourself:
The various inquiries go on and on; although, Americans shouldn’t hold their breath for a response. Whenever Biden has been faced with inquiries about his quid-pro-quo with Ukraine or the status of Hunter, he either lashes out verbally or declines to provide a real answer.
Still, there is no denying that the antics and drama associated with Hunter Biden have adversely impacted his father’s campaign.
What Comes Next?
Already, there are new and unfavorable reports surrounding Hunter Biden. At this time, he’s a subject of various criminal investigations pertaining to money laundering, counterfeit schemes, fraud, etc.

The Ukraine scandal and newfound paternity developments may only be the beginning of the issues which Hunter Biden is facing. As the elder Biden runs for office, he could be eager to distance himself from the mounting problems which seem to be coming at his son’s direction at full speed.
