Hunter Biden Reaches New Low as He Takes Action Against His 4-Year-Old Daughter

Hunter Biden is a lot of things, but it looks like we can add "deadbeat father" to that list.

Not only is the president's son fighting tooth and nail in the court system to lower the amount of child support he will have to remit to Lunden Roberts, a former Washington D.C.-based exotic dancer with whom Hunter Biden had a child, but he's also exhausting all possible legal maneuver to prevent the child from bearing the family surname.

According to the New York Post, Hunter Biden told an Arkansas court that his 4-year-old daughter, Navy Joan Roberts, would be robbed of "peaceful existence" if she were to take the Biden family name. That's an interesting angle. It's almost as if he's admitting that the Biden name brings trouble.

But as a December New York Post report noted, Hunter Biden hasn't even met his young daughter yet, and it was only in 2020 that he was finally forced to admit that he fathered the girl after DNA tests confirmed it. President Joe Biden, the young girl's grandfather, also remains estranged.

Hunter Biden's attorneys doubled down, arguing that the girl should have the power to make that decision on her own once "the disparagement of the Biden name is not at its height."

Roberts, however, had a contrasting view of the Biden surname.

In late December, Roberts argued to Circuit Court Judge Holly Meyer that her daughter should be afforded the right to carry the prestigious last name, saying it would benefit the young girl because the last name is "now synonymous with being well educated, successful, financially acute and politically powerful."

Why doesn't Hunter Biden want to let the child have his last name, given that he's the father? Anyone even remotely familiar with political optics can answer that question quickly. It's an elitist PR issue, plain and simple.

The Biden family, as corrupt and shady as they come across, presumably can't fathom the thought of a child born out of wedlock to a former D.C. stripper sharing the same last name.

Hunter Biden's excuses to the court as to why he doesn't believe the child deserves to carry the family name are weak, at best, and sound more like a sneaky way of complying with the wishes of others in his family who won't tolerate young Navy Joan taking the Biden name, as it would ultimately draw negative media attention that the Biden's can't afford at the moment.

But the strategy seems to have backfired spectacularly because now the headlines read as though Hunter Biden is a candidate for "worst father of the decade."

Among many others, Shapiro Chair of Public Interest Law at George Washington University Jonathan Turley tore into Hunter Biden's attempts to block his daughter from taking his name.

"It is awful to think of this child learning that her father fought recognition of paternity, fought child support, and then fought her using his name. Fortunately, she has the law on her side and, despite her father's disgraceful efforts, she is a Biden," Turley tweeted.

Many others agreed with Turley's assessment.

"What a thoroughly rotten thing to do to a child. Just consider that Hunter had all the privileges of life. He wants to deny all of those privileges to his own child and fought to avoid his responsibility every step of the way," one Twitter user wrote.

If Hunter Biden wants to avoid further scandal and negative press, this is one issue he should probably let go of as soon as possible. Not attempting to weasel out of child support payments would also be an excellent first step.
