President Joe Biden’s sister Valerie on ‘Joey’, his nephew Hunter
Not since John F. Kennedy has a President been surrounded by such a large and united clan, which has been a source of both emotional support and political turmoil for the Commander-in-Chief.
- “We’ve been best friends our whole lives,” Valerie Biden Owens told USA TODAY.
- Drug addiction is a common thread that runs through his memories and generations of his family.
- She fears White House staff are doing a good enough job of shining a light on Biden’s accomplishments.
NEWARK, Del. – With the Bidens, it’s all in the family.
For the best or for the worst.
There’s the “safe haven” that President Joe Biden’s sister Valerie provides in their regular late-night phone conversations, chattering about nothing after a day that could have been dominated for him by Russian aggression and the record inflation. But there’s also growing furor around his son Hunter, who is under federal investigation and likely the target of Capitol hearings if Republicans take control of Congress in November.
