Books don’t appear overnight, no matter how fast your ghostwriters may work, so I’m assuming Hunter Biden’s memoir of loss and addiction has been in the works for a while. It couldn’t come at a worse time, however.
Ordinarily, there would only be two groups of people who would care about the tome, “Beautiful Things” — which, according to USA Today, is a “candid chronicle of his drug- and alcohol-fueled binges and relationship with Beau’s widow, Hallie Biden.”
If you’re emotionally invested in Biden family drama, I’m sure you were eagerly awaiting it. Also, the perennial success of the addiction memoir genre, much like the serial killer podcast series, is proof there’s a hefty contingent of media consumers who love the pornography of real-life human misery.
Now, one suspects conservatives — as well as investigators — might be looking a bit closer at it, all because of the timing.
