In hunter Biden’s Memoir, “Beautiful Things,” he claims that he “has no recollection” of any encounter with a stripper that bore Biden’s child, according to Fox News.

The memoir shares details of Biden’s struggle with drug addiction particularly after the death of his brother Beau.

Biden described his addiction as, “more than four years of active addiction” with intermittent failed attempts to get clean.

“My relationship with [Beau’s widow] Hallie belonged to a whole other category, and the other women I’d been with during rampages since my divorce were hardly the dating type. We’d satisfy our immediate needs and little else.”

“I’m not proud of it. It’s why I would later challenge in court the woman from Arkansas who had a baby in 2018 and claimed the child was mine — I had no recollection of our encounter. That’s how little connection I had with anyone.”

“I was a mess, but a mess I’ve taken responsibility for.”

Circuit Judge Holly Meyer issued an order in January 2020 establishing that Hunter Biden had fathered the woman’s child. The order said that DNA tests made that fact clear.

“[T]he results of the DNA tests indicate with near scientific certainty that the defendant is the biological father of the child in this case,”

From Fox News:

That Biden was the father of this child was more than a claim by the mother.

Biden remembering little has become a recurring theme as he promotes his book.

In multiple interviews with CBS that aired on Sunday and Monday, Hunter claimed that he had “no idea” whether the laptop first reported on last fall by the New York Post as containing damning information about his business affairs was his.
