WE WERE SOMEWHERE AROUND WILMINGTON ON THE EDGE OF THE GOLF COURSE WHEN THE DRUGS BEGAN TO TAKE HOLD. Hunter Biden’s Crack-Fueled Misadventures:

Hunter Biden interjects two paragraphs into his book explaining what he did to earn those huge paychecks from the Ukrainian gas company Burisma — something about corporate governance and facilitating contacts with folks he says he knew in Mexico — but dozens of pages explaining how he spent the money. Mainly it went to his most assiduously pursued hobby: crack.

Wheeeee! What a story. The gonzo “I’m a crackhead” chapters in the memoir Beautiful Things are a lot more convincing than the half-dozen “I make for a formidable player in any respectable company’s internal oversight mechanism” sentences. Hunter Biden is amazed he’s still alive. I’m amazed, too. At the end of the book I wanted to give him a standing ovation for not being dead. If you didn’t know Hunter himself was telling the story, you’d expect to hear at any moment that some scumbag or other has simply conked him on the head, stolen his stuff, and left the body to cool under a broken streetlight on a forbidding block in Bridgeport or Baltimore. It’s a commonplace to aver that one drug addiction is very much like any other. Untrue! cries Hunter Biden. It turns out that being a crack addict is tremendously unlike being, say, a Riunite devotee or a Lucky Strike fiend.

From what Biden tells us, in the three years before his father announced his presidential candidacy, he spent night after night crawling into the worst neighborhoods in America hundreds of times, probably thousands of times, dealing with the worst characters, flush with money and willing to do almost anything for the next hit. Advantage was taken by certain fellows whose specialty it is to separate crack fiends from their money.

Read the whole thing.

Earlier: ‘No yellow!’ Hunter Biden used slur to refer to Asians in 2019 texts with his cousin Caroline who asked if he preferred ‘foreign or domestic’ women — as he’s already been blasted as racist for using the n-word.
