House Minority Leader Hakeem Jefferies denied the existence of Joe Biden’s seventh grandchild on Thursday, making the New York Democrat the latest to partake in the Biden family’s continued shunning of one of its youngest members.
The moment came during a Thursday press event in which Jeffries was asked by a reporter whether he thinks the president should acknowledge the existence of Navy Roberts, the 4-year-old daughter of Hunter Biden and Lunden Roberts. Rather than address the question, Jeffries replied, “I have no idea what you’re talking about” before going on to lie about Joe Biden’s economic record.
Jefferies is hardly the only Democrat to deny the existence of Navy Roberts. In fact, the entire Biden family has continuously refused to recognize the 4-year-old. In the year following Navy’s birth, Hunter “repeatedly denied” he was the girl’s father, even going as far as to claim he didn’t have sexual relations with Lunden. A DNA test administered in November 2019, however, proved that Hunter is indeed Navy’s father.
Even after the test confirmed his parentage, Hunter attempted to get out of paying child support to Lunden. He’s also reportedly hid at the White House to avoid being served legal papers over the matter.
Joe Biden — who legacy media love to cast as a caring “family man” — has also repeatedly denied Navy’s existence. During an April event at the White House, the president falsely claimed he had six grandchildren and not seven. The president has furthermore only hung stockings for six of his grandchildren during the 2021 and 2022 Christmas seasons, according to the Washington Examiner.
My grandchildren are “crazy about me and I’m crazy about them. Every single day, I contact every one of my grandchildren,” Biden claimed during a 2022 podcast interview. White House staff have reportedly been instructed to assert publicly that the president only has six grandchildren and not seven.
