Pride and Pain for President Biden as Son Hunter Has Navigated a Year of Investigations

From an AP story by Colleen Long headlined “Pride and pain for president as son Hunter has navigated years of investigation”:

President Joe Biden had just six words to offer after his 53-year-old son Hunter pleaded guilty to federal tax offenses in a deal that is also likely to spare him time behind bars on a weapons charge.

“I’m very proud of my son,” he said.

That pride has been accompanied by pain, and for the president’s family, both have been on public display. Republicans have worked to use Hunter Biden’s actions — and his acknowledged struggle with addiction — as an anchor to try to drag down his father.
