President Joe Biden and his family, aided and abetted by a complicit mainstream media, have seemingly sought to deny the very existence of Hunter Biden's 4-year-old daughter, Navy Joan, who lives in Arkansas with her mother, Lunden Roberts, a former stripper who briefly hooked up with Hunter in 2017.
That was evident again on Thursday when Biden falsely claimed that he had six grandchildren -- leaving out Navy Joan as his seventh -- while speaking at a White House event, Breitbart reported.
Thursday was "Take Your Child To Work Day" at the White House, and President Biden spent some time answering questions from the gathered children of his White House aides, employees, and staffers -- including a query about how many people actually lived in the White House.
Biden first replied that it was usually just him and the first lady but also noted that his adult children and their own kids, his grandchildren, would often come to visit. "And then, the best part of it all, I have six grandchildren. And I’m crazy about them. And I speak to them every single day. Not a joke," he said. "Matter of fact, I just got finished going through the calls. And only one of them answered the phone. But at least I got to leave a message."
He then attempted to name all of them but only succeeded in naming five -- Naomi, Finnegan, Maisy, Natalie, an unnamed grandson in high school, and the youngest baby Beau -- and, in a separate question a moment later, couldn't recall exactly where all six of them lived.

Obviously, President Biden made no mention of his seventh grandchild, Navy Joan, even as his son Hunter is currently embroiled in a bitter paternity suit battle to try and reduce the monthly child support payments he had agreed to in 2020 after a DNA test in 2019 proved that he was the biological father of the young Arkansas girl.
This also certainly isn't the first time that the president and his family have flatly ignored the very existence of Hunter's out-of-wedlock child, as the New York Post reported in both December 2021 and November 2022 that Navy Joan was excluded and missing from the Christmas stockings for grandkids hung in the White House by first lady Jill Biden.
The Post further noted that there is evidence, both in Hunter's own memoir as well as messages on his abandoned laptop, that prove his fling with Roberts wasn't just a quickly forgotten one-night stand either, as she was instead actually employed for a time by Hunter's consulting firm while pregnant but was cut loose and kicked off the company's health insurance plan once the child was born in 2018.
Zach Parkinson, a spokesman for the Republican Party, shared the video clip of President Biden speaking about his grandchildren but failing to mention Navy Joan and added a few thoughts of his own in a thread of tweets with regard to the possible reasons why the president routinely fails to acknowledge his seventh grandchild.
Parkinson wrote, "There's only three options here, none of which are good: Biden can't remember how many grandkids he actually has; Biden knows and chooses to actively neglect his own grandchild; Hunter hasn't told him/lied to him about the paternity test."
He continued, "This isn't up for debate either. A 2019 DNA test found that Hunter is the 'biological and legal' father. A 2020 court order found Hunter is the father. The baby's birth certificate lists Hunter as the father."

Parkinson added to conclude his thread, "The reason this fiction is allowed to persist is that many in the media not only look the other way, they actively whitewash this seventh grandchild out of the story," and provided screenshots of examples from the Associated Press and CBS News that falsely claimed the president had just six grandchildren and excluded the seventh.
