(FixThisNation.com) – President Biden for the first time ever acknowledged that he has seven grandchildren in a People’s magazine “Friday night news dump.”
Only weeks after Hunter Biden’s court battle over his daughter, Navy Joan, 4, was settled, President Biden provided an exclusive interview to the magazine where for the first time he acknowledged she was his grandchild. Previously he had repeatedly claimed to only have six grandchildren.
In the statement sent to People’s magazine President Biden noted that his son Hunter Biden, along with the mother of the child were working together in order to help create a relationship that would be benefiting their daughter. He continued by asking for privacy as they navigate this circumstance. He further noted that this was not a political but rather a personal issue and that both he and his wife, Jill Biden were only hoping for the best for their grandchildren.
Many people online were quick to comment on Biden’s recent statement, especially as he made a relatively big announcement right before he was scheduled to leave for a vacation.
Alex Thompson, Axios correspondent noted that Biden released the statement on Friday.
Comfortably Smug, the co-host of the Ruthless podcast also commented on the recent news laughing and stating that to Joe Biden the baby was just a news dump on Friday night. Similarly Steve Krakauer, the Fourth Watch media critic also wrote that it was “classy” to acknowledge one’s grandchild in that news dump on a Friday night.
Finally, MSNBC host Jonathan Lemire added that the White House was no longer able to ignore the grandchild.
