Navy Boots Biden Son Over Cocaine Use
It looks like Hunter Biden, son of Vice President Joe Biden, isn't as lucky as George W. Bush. The New York Post is reporting that Hunter was recently discharged from the Navy Reserve after he tested positive for cocaine use. A few heads turned earlier this year when it was revealed that a Ukranian oil and natural gas company, Burisma Holdings, had placed Hunter on its board of directors at the same time the Obama administration was trying to start World War III with Russia by meddling in the natural resource-rich country, formerly a part of the Soviet Union, with the Vice President serving as the administration's point person on Ukraine. Hunter, who is 44, didn't join the Navy Reserve until he was 43. Because of his age, he required a waiver to join the Navy. He received a second waiver for a drug incident that occurred when he was much younger. Biden was commissioned in May 2013, but he tested positive for cocaine when he reported to duty in Norfolk a month later. He was not formally discharged from the Navy until this past February. I'm wondering how they were able to keep his discharge a secret for this long. Biden's daughter, Ashley, has also been the subject of reported drug use. As a student at Tulane University, she was busted for marijuana use. When her father ran for president in the Democratic primary in 2008, a video of her using cocaine at a Delaware party surfaced.
