President Joe Biden’s younger son, Hunter Biden, who has a lengthy history of drug addiction, got a whole lot more than he bargained for when he turned up at a meeting in the House on Wednesday — which shocked everyone — that was being held to consider a resolution that would bring charges against him for contempt of Congress, as reporters made quite a scene attempting to ask him questions, including one who went all in and asked him “what kind of crack” he liked to smoke.
Not all heroes were capes, ladies and gentlemen.
Check out the details from the Daily Wire:
The younger Biden crashed a House Oversight Committee hearing — while members met to discuss a contempt citation against him for defying an earlier subpoena — and as he attempted to exit the building afterward, reporters swarmed him and shouted their questions in the hopes that they’d be acknowledged.

Hunter’s attorney Abbe Lowell attempted to quiet the crowd, promising that he would answer questions if they would just calm down and allow him to make a statement on behalf of his client.
No sooner had he made that request than one reporter shouted, “What kind of crack do you normally smoke, Mr. Biden?”
You know Hunter heard that question and must have been absolutely fuming inside. Which, for some odd reason, carries a certain sort of satisfaction, doesn’t it? This is a man who has enjoyed political privilege for decades and has gotten away with so many violations of the law it isn’t funny, but now, he’s legitimately facing consequences for his actions, and along the way, he’s being mocked for his indiscretions. You love to see it, you know?
According to Real Clear Investigations, Hunter Biden was also asked whether or not he was high, right there on the spot. It wouldn’t surprise me if the answer was an affirmative.
“As Hunter Biden suddenly fled the contempt hearing over his subpoena defiance, ending a surprise appearance he staged with Democrats, reporters and others shouted a number of questions at him in the hallway, including ‘Hunter, are you on crack right now?’” Sperry said in a post published on X.

Another clip was shared on X that showed a reporter asking Hunter Biden, “What’s your favorite type of crack?” and then, “Are you on crack today?”
The testicular fortitude one must possess to just shout out these kind of questions, right to the man’s face, is unparalleled. Someone needs to give him a raise. Like yesterday. This is the kind of hard hitting reporting we need more of, folks. Where are the real journalists at?

The hearing itself was equally contentious, with Rep. Nancy Mace (R-N.C.) asking who had “bribed” the president’s son to show up to the hearing — and then arguing with his attorney, who tried to talk over her.
“Who bribed Hunter Biden to be here today? That’s my first question. Second question, you are the epitome of white privilege … what are you afraid of? You have no balls to come up here …” we hear in the video clip.

Just as Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was due to give her own statements concerning the resolution and no doubt had a thing or two to say to Hunter herself, the president’s son got up and walked out, which resulted in her calling him a “coward.”
