‘The View’ Comments On Biden After Hunter Decision

Hello everyone! Buckle up because we’ve got some serious family drama mixed with politics today. Let’s dive into the latest buzz around President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

During a recent segment of “The View,” Joy Behar praised President Biden for standing by his son Hunter while also stating that he won’t pardon him. Behar recounted the tragic events in Hunter’s life, including a car crash that killed his mother and the death of his brother, Beau Biden, from cancer. She empathized with the Biden family, highlighting Joe Biden’s unwavering support for Hunter.

However, the White House hasn’t ruled out the possibility of commuting Hunter’s sentence. When pressed on this issue, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre referred to President Biden’s previous comments, noting that sentencing hasn’t been scheduled yet.

According to The Hill,

President Biden has commuted dozens of sentences throughout his presidency for nonviolent drug offenses. In April, he granted clemency to 16 people who were convinced of nonviolent drug offenses and he commuted the sentences of 31 Americans serving for nonviolent drug offenses who were all on home confinement.

Hunter Biden, charged with three felony counts for illegally purchasing a firearm while addicted to crack cocaine, was found guilty on all counts. Despite this, President Biden has expressed his unconditional love and support for Hunter, emphasizing that he is proud of his son’s resilience in overcoming addiction.

The case against Hunter Biden revolves around him lying on a form about his drug addiction when purchasing a firearm in 2018. He faces a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison and a hefty fine, though first-time offenders rarely receive the maximum sentence. His sentencing date is expected to be set about a month before the November Election Day.

As the drama unfolds, President Biden continues to show his support for Hunter. After the guilty verdict, the President made a previously scheduled trip to Delaware and was seen embracing Hunter upon his arrival.
