The son of Vice President Joe Biden says he is “embarrassed” after being discharged from the Navy Reserve earlier this year --- reportedly after testing positive for coc aine.

The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the matter, reported Thursday that Hunter Biden’s short-lived military career ended because he failed a drug test after reporting to his unit in 2013. According to the Wall Street Journal, the Navy discharged him in February of this year.

Ha...nice...so Biden's son was discharged from the Navy after testing positive for Cocaine. Amazing this has not been all over MSM with the war on drugs and all. I can't imagine how much VP Biden had to do to try to keep this story out of the news for this long.

I bet it will just be swept under the rug and not even reported on much after this. Timely release with all the other news in the headlines....I bet this won't even last a day in the news.

If I were Biden's son I would probably self-medicate as well.

I fail to see why this should be an important story ?

Ha...yep.

What's really funny though is that he can't blame it on just being a kid. The guy was already an attorney and entered the Navy at 40 years old. Talk about screwing up whatever political career you wanted to have later on.....this one will come back to haunt him I am sure.

Oh I don't know.....just that the VP of the US's son was kicked out of the US Navy for illegal drug use.....no biggie there.

I found it refreshing that the Navy stated they never contacted Biden's office about the situation before his discharge. It shows that the Navy is not showing favoritism--or that they really dislike Biden.

20 years from now, he'll run for some office and this will be "revealed" then. MSM is going to do what ever it takes to cover this administration. At least until after the election and then watch them roll over when the Dems lose power. All the ones who've been hiding their dirty little secrets will claim to have been "neutral" all along but "the time has come for complete transparency". Or, they'll whine and scream about how the end times are here since the Republicans will destroy us all and everything we believe in

From the OPs link -

“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,” he said. “I respect the Navy's decision. With the love and support of my family, I'm moving forward.”


Administrative discharge for coc aine use?
He's lucky he wasn't tossed in the brig and given a dishonorable discharge.

Ha...I was thinking the same. VP Biden is a major "war on drugs" guy. For his son to be licked out of the Navy after one month of service testing positive for Cocaine is a pretty big deal. A less than honorable discharge. But like I said.....doubt this will even last a day in the news.

I will type slowly - as logic seems scarce on ATS today

point one :

why does it matter who his father is - hunter biden is an adult - his father is nither responsible for or accountable for his actions


point 2 :

how many other servicemen do you think have been discharged for UCMJ offences involving narcotics this year ?? yet no other case is reported as national news

He will get an Other-than-Honorable Discharge for drug use. I was in the military for 10 years and seen this situation numerous times. He can fight to get it changed to a General Discharge, which isn't as bad. I know a few people that have been in the same situation and have done well for themselves afterwards. It's all about that individual's drive to succeed. This speed bump can only hold him back if he lets it. Now government jobs, that's a different story. But, his dad is the VP so who knows.

Edit: A dishonorable discharge could be given as punishment based on the UCMJ, but usually is reserved for high profile crimes while serving in the armed forces.

The kid and his sister (she was or is an addict also) are just adding to there political resume's so they can follow in daddy's footsteps.

They still have to meet the community organizer, fraud, and corruption requirement's yet.

Truthfully, I don't think politicians should be allowed to breed... IMO
