Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden was reportedly kicked out of the Navy in February after testing positive for cocaine.
According to NBC News, Hunter failed a drug test in 2013. He was discharged in February of this year.
Biden said in a statement: “It was the honor of my life to serve in the US Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge. I respect the Navy’s decision. With the love and support of my family, I’m moving forward.”
I’d get it if Hunter Biden were 18-23-years-old. Youthful indiscretion and all that. But his mid-40s? Those are some deep-rooted issues.

Hunter, 44, joined the Navy Reserves as an ensign in 2012. The Wall Street Journal reports that Biden needed a special waiver to join the Navy since he was 42-years-old at the time, 8 years older than the maximum allowable age to enlist.
I just thank God that Hunter Biden won’t have his life ruined for using a recreational drug popular with his cohort. That’s for poor people.
