Vice President Joe Biden, one of the most zealous anti-drug crusaders in American politics, has some serious egg on his face now that his son Hunter has been booted out of the Navy because he tested positive for cocaine. But it seems that is all that will happen to him.
Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden was discharged from the Navy in February after testing positive for cocaine, a person familiar with the case confirmed to ABC News.
The person said Biden had failed a urinalysis test administered in June 2013 before he was discharged from the Navy.
“It was the honor of my life to serve in the U.S .Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge,” Hunter Biden said in a statement distributed through his lawyer. “I respect the Navy’s decision. With the love and support of my family, I’m moving forward.”
The person familiar with the case said he “was treated no different than any other sailor.”
The policies he has supported have destroyed the lives of millions of African-Americans and their families, but his wealthy white son gets a discharge and faces no criminal charges. And his son actually had to get a waiver from the Navy to get his commission in the reserves because he had a previous drug conviction, for which he also faced little punishment. The real punishment is for poor black men, not rich white ones.
