President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden reportedly referred to two Mexican grocery store workers as “prolly illegal” while he was being questioned by law enforcement about his missing .38 revolver in 2018, Politico reported.
The incident occurred after Hunter’s then-romantic partner Hallie Biden disposed of his gun in a trash can near the store. When she came back to retrieve the revolver at Hunter’s direction, however, the firearm was gone. Hallie notified the grocery store of the missing gun, prompting the manager to call the police, who then questioned her and Hunter about the gun near the store’s loading dock.
It was during this exchange that Hunter told law enforcement that “the store had some suspicious people working for it” after two employees, described in the police report as “Mexican males,” walked past the area. When a police officer asked Hunter if his comment was directed at the two men, Biden’s son doubled down and claimed they were “prolly illegal,” the police report stated.
Law enforcement also pressed Hunter about the reason he had a gun in the first place and if it had ever been used to commit a crime, which reportedly made Hunter “very agitated” with the officer before the Biden son asked “if I was intentionally trying to make him mad.”
Hunter first acquired the gun a few weeks prior, but he may have lied about his drug use on the Firearms Transaction Record. Despite his experience with drugs — including the graphic images depicted on his infamous laptop he dropped off for repairs in 2019, his multiple times in rehab, and his discharge from the military over cocaine use — Hunter marked “no” on a question on the official government form asking if he was an “unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance.”
