Addiction is a problem in America. About 21 million Americans are addicted to something, yet only 10 percent get treatment. Drug overdoses are currently triple what they were in 1990. Addiction is a problem that costs the U.S. Government an estimated $600 billion a year. While we know that Hunter Biden suffers from addiction to crack and other drugs, it might surprise you that Joe does as well. New bombshell Hunter Biden texts reveal Joe Biden admitting his battle with addiction.
Addiction is a problem that plagues the Biden family. In fact, a total of five members have been in rehab, including Biden’s children Hunter and Ashley, his brother Frank, his niece Caroline, and his late son Beau’s widow (and Hunter’s former lover) Hallie. Some were ordered to attend rehab by a judge.
But what about Joe and Jill Biden? Recently-leaked texts reveal that Biden and Jill have also struggled with addiction.
“You’ve always made me proud you got the disease from mommy and me but you are strong and courageous with so much more to give,” Biden writes in texts to Hunter.
It’s clear that Joe Biden loves his son, but it’s interesting that he and so much of his family suffered with drug and alcohol addiction at the same time as Biden was criticizing George Bush’s war on drugs as not being harsh enough. It’s also interesting that Democrats repeatedly accused President Trump of abusing Adderall and cocaine while Joe and Jill Biden have apparently had their own issues with drugs.
Now, Americans have questions. When did Biden struggle with addiction? Is it a current issue? Does his drug or alcohol abuse have an impact on his ability to lead? Biden has shown signs of cognitive decline for just some time. Does his addiction issue factor into this? We deserve answers.
