Emotional texts show Joe Biden comfort son Hunter who calls himself a 'f***ed up addict who can’t be trusted' in rehab

HEARTBREAKING texts showed Joe Biden comforting his son Hunter, who calls himself a "f***ed up addict who can’t be trusted."

On Friday, the New York Post published the private exchange between Hunter and his 77-year-old dad on February 24, 2019 as Biden prepared to enter the presidential race.

Rudy Giuliani handed over Hunter's data to the newspaper after a Trump-loving computer repairman leaked the contents of his laptop.

Now, their intimate iMessages have been revealed.

“Good morning my beautiful son. I miss you and love you. Dad,” Biden told Hunter at 6:57 am.

"Good morning … from f***ing rehab," Hunter replied.

He then ranted about his ex-wife, Kathleen Buhle, his dad's advisors, the late Beau Biden's widow, Hallie Biden – who later became Hunter's ex-girlfriend – and how his addiction would affect his dad's campaign.

“For f***s sake hallie [sic] for the first time [in] 17 days talks to me to say im [sic] an embarrassment. To MY family,” Hunter wrote.

“Well dad, the truth is as you and hallie point out — I am a f***ed up addict that cant [sic] be…Trusted relied upon nor defended.

“If you don’t run ill [sic] never have a chance at redemption."

His concerned father then sent a slew of reassuring messages to Hunter a few hours later.

He said: “I’ll run but I need you. H [Hallie] is wrong. Only focus is recovery. Nothing else,” he wrote.

“Your girls are so smart truly amazing. Very focused. Naomi very upset with K [Kathleen].

“When you can and feel like it call. Positive my text etc a target. Love.”

The emotional exchange was prompted by New York Times writer Maureen Dowd's February 23, 2019 column, which referenced “the troubled Hunter" and Hallie's relationship.

"It was understandable that, having lost so many close to him, Biden would hold the troubled Hunter tight," O'Dowd wrote. "And he was doubtless upset about the public nature of the divorce."

Hunter apparently took issue with this description.

“This [is] your staff. I haven’t been in the vicinity of a single f***ing person in that circle in over two years,” Hunter raged.

“Every bit of information they use against me is coming from ‘all the people that love me.’ Jesus Christ.”

Hunter took issue with being advised to “make [clear] that I never was with hallie [sic] until a year after” her husband and his brother Beau died of brain cancer back in 2015.

“Well dad, I guess you were right," he continued. "That it would all just go away like that genius Kate [Bedingfield – Biden’s communications director] and the rest said it would."

“Well having made clear to the world that the only reason for not [running is your] family problems im [sic] glad to be the f***ing bullseye you painted on my back."

On February 25, 2019, Biden reached out to his son once more, asking "where you are."

"Can I come to see you[?]," the former Vice President wrote. "Need to talk about 2020 announcement and what you think.

"I love you, Dad," Biden concluded.

Hunter has previously opened up a bout his struggle with addiction – which spiraled after Beau's death – in a deeply personal interview with The New Yorker.

"Several times a day, his father called him, and Hunter assured him that he was OK. Eventually, Biden showed up unannounced at the apartment," the 2019 article stated.

Hunter's personal photos and emails were first leaked on Wednesday after John Paul MacIsaac, 44, handed over the laptop to the FBI and Giuliani, who passed them on to the Post.

MacIsaac said the device dropped into his Wilmington MAC Shop in Delaware and he came across the files during its repair.

Biden's son reportedly left the water-damaged Apple laptop at MacIsaac's shop in April 2019, but MacIsaac claimed Hunter never returned, or paid the $85 bill.

However, the Post's article about it was censored on some social media platforms like Facebook.

But Twitter boss Jack Dorsey acknowledged that their blocking of the article was "not great" on Wednesday evening.

"Our communication around our actions on the @nypost article was not great," he wrote. "And blocking URL sharing via tweet or DM with zero context as to why we’re blocking: unacceptable."
