So Now Joe Wants to Meet His Granddaughter, What a Guy! – Watch
In a stunning development, President Joe Biden has expressed a desire to meet his four-year-old granddaughter, Navy Joan Roberts, after refusing to even acknowledge the child’s existence until last Friday’s afternoon.
According to a report by NBC News, people familiar with the matter said that Biden was eager to meet Navy Joan and hoped to “dispel the notion that he was ignoring a vulnerable member of the Biden family tree.”
This sudden act was likely prompted by years of public scrutiny, much of it rooted in the fact that the president’s political identity was very much tied to him being a “family man” who spoke to his children and grandchildren on a near-daily basis.
There have been a number of reports, Biden had avoided addressing Navy Joan’s existence because he was “following Hunter’s lead” and waiting for the outcome of legal disputes between Hunter and Navy Joan’s mother, former stripper Lunden Roberts.
And recently CNN contributor Scott Jennings noted that in many cases where a father does not step up, the responsibility falls on grandparents to do the right thing by the child.
When Democratic strategist Michael LaRosa argued on CNN that the Bidens were just a normal family like any other — Jennings went straight to the issue of the previously-unmentionable granddaughter.
“You know where I’m from a lot of families deal with addiction, and you know who ends up picking up the pieces? The grandparents! And in this case, the grandparents would not acknowledge this little girl —” Jennings continued, and guest host Kasie Hunt pointed out that the Bidens had issued a statement about her just days earlier.
“Oh, what a hero! The polling must have been brutal. The polling must have been brutal,” Jennings replied.
The Bidens’ statement, released late Friday to PEOPLE Magazine, said, “Our son Hunter and Navy’s mother, Lunden, are working together to foster a relationship that is in the best interests of their daughter, preserving her privacy as much as possible going forward.”
And apparently that work includes a child support agreement that bars the girl from using the Biden name.
