Drug addict Hunter Biden admits to buying crack off the streets and cooking it at home
Hunter Biden admits to buying crack on the streets of Washington, D.C. and having guns pointed in his face while he went searching for drugs in his upcoming memoir.
‘I’ve bought crack cocaine on the streets of Washington, D.C., and cooked up my own inside a hotel bungalow in Los Angeles,’ Hunter writes in Beautiful Things, out Tuesday, April 6. ‘I’ve been so desperate for a drink that I couldn’t make the one-block walk between a liquor store and my apartment without uncapping the bottle to take a swig.’
President Biden’s youngest son is candid about the personal scandals that cast a shadow on his father’s presidential campaign, including his affair with his sister-in-law and business dealings with Ukrainian firm Burisima.
‘In the last five years alone, my two-decades-long marriage has dissolved, guns have been put in my face, and at one point I dropped clean off the grid, living in $59-a night Super 8 motels off I-95 while scaring my family even more than myself,’ he writes in an excerpt obtained by The New York Times.

Hunter reveals that at one point, he let a homeless crack addict who he bought drugs from move in with him.
‘The relationship was symbiotic,’ he writes. ‘It was two crack addicts who couldn’t find their way out of a paper bag. A one-act crack farce.’

He recalls a time when a gun was pointed at his face while on his search for drugs.
‘I went through and stepped around people curled up on thin pieces of cardboard. Beyond them, I noticed a tilting, unlit tent. It was pitch black. All I saw was the gun pointed at my face,’ he writes.
He describes going on 16-hour benders and a time he was so desperate for alcohol that he took knife to bottles of vodka to cut off the plastic knob to let the alcohol flow faster.
Hunter says he lost 20 pounds at this time and survived off a diet of ‘Doritos, pork rinds, ramen noodles’ and any items available at the liquor store.
‘Eventually my stomach couldn’t even handle the noodles,’ he writes.
This was all going on while his father was serving as vice president to Barack Obama. Hunter recalls Joe telling him ‘I know you’re not fine, Hunter. You need help.’
‘He never let me forget that all was not lost. He never abandoned me, never shunned me, never judged me, no matter how bad things got – and believe me, from there they would get much, much worse,’ he writes.
Hunter writes that his descent into darkness followed the death of his older brother, Beau, of brain cancer in 2015 at age 46.
The book’s title, Beautiful Things, is an expression Hunter and his brother would use with each other after Beau’s diagnosis and was meant to stress what was important in life.
Hunter tells about how his relationship with his late brother’s wife Hallie Biden (pictured together) began. ‘Our relationship began as a mutually desperate grasping for the love we had both lost, and its dissolution only deepened that tragedy,’ he writes

Hunter goes on to tell about how his relationship with his late brother’s wife Hallie started.
‘Our relationship began as a mutually desperate grasping for the love we had both lost, and its dissolution only deepened that tragedy,’ Hunter writes. ‘It made the obvious clear: What was gone was gone permanently. There was no putting Humpty Dumpty back together again.’
Hunter’s new memoir, Beautiful Things, is out April 6
Hunter says in the memoir that his service on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, which Republicans used against his father during the 2020 presidential campaign, wasn’t unethical and didn’t represent a lack of judgment on his part.
But the younger Biden wouldn’t do it again if given a chance, he says in the book, citing partisan politics.
‘I did nothing unethical, and have never been charged with wrongdoing,’ Hunter writes. ‘In our current political environment, I don’t believe it would make any difference if I took that seat or not. I’d be attacked anyway.’
‘What I do believe, in this current climate, is that it wouldn’t matter what I did or didn’t do,’ he wrote. ‘The attacks weren’t intended for me. They were meant to wound my dad.’
During the 2020 campaign against Joe Biden, President Donald Trump and his allies repeatedly sought to make an issue of Hunter’s work for the Ukrainian gas company Burisma. Trump alleged unspecified shady dealings by the Bidens despite the lack of evidence of any wrongdoing by either candidate Biden or his son.
Hunter writes that his only misjudgment was not considering, back in 2014 when he joined Burisma’s board to help oversee its corporate practices, that Trump would be in the White House three years into the future.

A lawyer and former lobbyist, he joined Burisma’s board around the time his father was vice president and helping conduct the Obama administration’s foreign policy in eastern Europe.
Trump and others had insisted that Hunter Biden was exploiting his father´s name, and they raised unsubstantiated charges of corruption.
‘Knowing all of that now: No, I would not do it again,’ Hunter wrote. ‘I wouldn’t take the seat on Burisma’s board. Trump would have to look elsewhere to find a suitable distraction for his impeachable behavior.’
The memoir was in the works before Joe Biden became the front-runner in the Democratic presidential campaign. It was kept under wraps even as Hunter’s business dealings became a fixation of Trump and his allies during the election, and his finances the subject of a Justice Department investigation.
