During remarks about women's sports on Friday while hosting the champion LSU women's basketball team at the White House, President Joe Biden falsely said he had "four granddaughters" when he actually has five with son Hunter's illegitimate daughter Navy Joan Roberts, who lives in Arkansas.
“The way in which women’s sports has come along is just incredible. And it’s not just in sports, it’s across the board in every single thing,” Biden said. “It’s really neat to see since I’ve got four granddaughters.”
Forbes pointed out the discrepancy in a tweet.

It's not the first time Biden has left Navy Joan out when talking about his grandchildren. He also said regarding take your child to work day, that he had six grandchildren, naming them and again leaving out Navy Joan.
“The best part of it all, I have six grandchildren, and I’m crazy about them. I speak to them every single day,” Biden said, and named them. “Not a joke."
It's like the Bidens have just erased her existence from their public personas, despite a paternity test in 2019 that proved she was Hunter's child and an ongoing child support trial. They didn't include her in the tradition of hanging Christmas stockings for each grandchild at the White House, and have never spoken of her publicly.
When a reporter asked Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about why they weren't acknowledging Navy Joan, she refused to answer the question as she does with so many questions about the Biden family.
It comes off rather cruel for the Bidens to shun and ignore a member of their family, especially a little girl who has no fault in how she was born, as a result of Hunter's affair with her then-stripper mother.
Not only are they ignoring her, but Hunter is trying to get his $ 20,000-a-month child support reduced. It is a lot of child support to pay, but as lawyers for Lunden Roberts point out, Hunter Biden is living high on the hog in Malibu, California, flying on private jets and taking vacations in Europe--even if most of it is as a tagalong with daddy, the President.
Roberts would like to give Navy Joan the Biden family name because of the prestige it carried, but of course, it would get a lot harder to ignore her if that happened.
One can only wonder what kind of therapy she's going to need when she grows up and realizes how she has been treated by one of the most recognizable families in the country.
Then again, by the time she's old enough to realize what has happened, the Biden family name might be a disgrace.
Maybe she's better off not being connected to them, as details of deep corruption continue to come out of the House Oversight Committee's investigation.
