'This Is Not Anybody's Business': 'The View' Hosts Slam Columnist Who Criticized Biden's Treatment of Grandchild

July 10, 2023

The hosts of The View slammed liberal columnist Maureen Dowd after she criticized President Joe Biden for failing to acknowledge his seventh grandchild, the love child of first son Hunter Biden.

"Maybe Maureen Dowd should find something else to write about," cohost Whoopi Goldberg said on Monday. "This is not anybody’s business."

She added that talking about Biden's family is "unnecessary" and that we "need to know not almost anything [sic]" about politicians' families.

Dowd published a piece Saturday in the New York Times calling out Biden for refusing to acknowledge he has seven grandchildren.

"The president can’t defend Hunter on all his other messes and draw the line at accepting one little girl," Dowd wrote. "You can’t punish her for something she had no choice about. The Bidens should embrace the life Hunter brought into the world."

Four-year-old Navy Joan is the daughter of Hunter Biden and his former mistress Lunden Alexis Roberts, but the first family refuses to acknowledge the child, who was proven through a paternity test to be Hunter Biden's daughter.

Aides in the White House have been told that the family has six grandchildren, not seven, according to the Times. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refused to comment on Biden's seventh grandchild when asked by a reporter last week whether Biden acknowledges "this little girl as his granddaughter."
