Hunter Biden Claimed Lunden Roberts Was a Basketball 'Mentor' to His Daughter and Sasha Obama

As 2020 came to a close, all of us were hoping we’d be having a better 2021 after the annus horribilis of the coronavirus pandemic and George Floyd riots.

For almost all of the individuals in President Joe Biden’s orbit, that’s generally been true.

For Hunter Biden, it hasn’t.

For the president’s wayward son, the revelations and accusations that have come this year have been major: If information in his autobiography is correct, he almost certainly lied on a federal form to obtain a firearm.

They’ve been moderately problematic: He’s apparently a fan of the N-word and once told a police officer that Mexican workers at a supermarket were “prolly illegal”). That’s moderately problematic only because he’s a liberal. If he’d been a Republican, it would be major.

They’ve been minor-but-seriously-embarrassing: He bragged about smoking crack with former Washington, D.C., Mayor Marion Barry, among other faux pas.

You can file this one in the third category, although it’s yet another sign that Hunter Biden believes that the rules simply don’t apply to him. And when someone calls him on it, he’s willing to name-drop Barack Obama’s daughter to get him out of trouble.

According to newly reported emails found on his infamous laptop, Hunter once claimed that the mistress he slipped into his office after hours was actually a basketball “mentor” to his daughter Maisy and Sasha Obama.

Biden fathered a daughter with the woman, Lunden Roberts, now 29. Not that he was a particularly ebullient dad; he was forced to take a paternity test after he denied the child was his and refused to pay child support. After a legal struggle, he settled out of court last year.

At the time of the 2017 incident, Hunter was accused of letting guests in through a side door to avoid security at the House of Sweden, a Washington building where Hunter leased space. There’s a good reason for that level of security, considering the fact the building is home to the embassies of Sweden and Iceland.

After an email from the building management politely reminded Hunter of the rules, he responded with an angry missive in which he claimed Roberts was actually a basketball coach — or “mentor,” as he put it.

The incident was first reported by the Swedish newspaper Expressen in February. Bits of Hunter’s email to building management came out then, including an accusation that someone was being racist and judgmental toward his visitors. (“If [name redacted] has a problem with my guests’ race or attire, I think we should all sit down and talk about it with a lawyer present,” Hunter wrote.)

The exchange was sparked by a simple request from the House of Sweden office management:

“It has again come to my attention that it appears that visitors have gained access to number 507 through the northern entrance after office hours – as we have 24/7 video surveillance throughout the building,” the real estate representative for the building wrote. “Help us keep the building safe by following House of Sweden’s rules.”

The U.K. Daily Mail got hold of the full email to building security that Hunter wrote in September of 2017, obtained from his infamous laptop. Amazingly, it turns out to be more privilege-tastic than you probably imagined it to be.

For starters, it’s worth noting Roberts had played basketball at Western Illinois University and Arkansas State University, according to Heavy. She didn’t particularly distinguish herself in either capacity; she played one season at Arkansas State, during which she scored 3.2 points per game.

That’s not how she came to Hunter’s attention, however.

The New York Post reported she met the future president’s wayward son at his favorite strip club in Washington — the Mpire Club, where Roberts was employed in, um, a capacity other than management. (At the time, it’s worth noting, Hunter was in a relationship with Hallie Biden, the widow of his brother Beau.)

If you’re going to go off on the management of the House of Sweden for not letting you break the rules, however, it’s difficult to score points by saying you were trying to get a stripper into your office without going through security.

Therefore, she became a basketball mentor to Hunter Biden’s daughter and oh did I mention Sasha Obama? Cough cough, name drop.

“Lunden is in her final semester at George Washington University’s National CSIS Masters Program and ranked #1 in her class,” he wrote, according to the Daily Mail.

“I had phoned ahead to let security know that my youngest daughter’s basketball mentor she worked out with Maisy and Sasha Obama when they played in rec league together. Maisy, my daughter continues ton [sic] pursue a NCAA Div. One team and Lunden continues to help.”

He also pasted part of her sporting history.

“Averaged 21.5 points, seven rebounds and three assists during her senior season at Southside…was a four-year letterman, earning all-conference honors in her final three seasons and all-state honors as a junior and senior…an AHSAA All-Star game nominee and McDonald’s All-American following her senior season,” the email stated, according to the Daily Mail.

She was an above-average high school player who didn’t do much in college and was now a “mentor” to Maisy and Sasha Obama did I mention Sasha Obama?

Before introducing Lunden, “Biden went on a rant about how someone in the House of Sweden was a bigot who was targeting his guests because of, among other things, how big they were.

“For some reason [name redacted] seems to be offended or concerned with the shape size color ethnicity weight — who knows — of my visitors,” Hunter wrote.

“I have never tried to evade security and that can be confirmed by all members of your security team. I assume that [name redacted] is now referring to ‘visitors’ THAT RECENTLY ENTERED THE BUILDING THROUGH THE NORTH ENTRANCE WHERE THEY WERE MET AT MY OFFICE DOOR BY SECURITY.”

There was more White House name-dropping when it came to another guest he let in: “In particular (among several) [name redacted] took issue with a middle aged African American woman who because of her economic circumstances was dressed in clothes I will assume Ms. [redacted] would associate with an extremely poor person,’ he wrote.

‘The woman’s name is [redacted] and I have known her for 17 years. She has had a very difficult life, but is one of the more honest and caring people I have ever known. She has been homeless for quite sometime and I have always tried to help by giving [redacted] odd jobs that fit with her odd hours so that she can have somewhere safe to sleep. I assure you she is not a threat to the Icelandic Ambassador.

“IF YOU WOULD LIKE HER TO COME IN AND PROVIDE ID FOR BACKGROUND LET ME KNOW,” Hunter said, again making good use of that caps lock key. Also, he made sure whoever read it remembered who he was: “She has stayed in MY parents home. She has been to the White House with me and she has met my entire family.”

Hunter would eventually give Lunden Roberts a job at his consultancy firm, Rosemont Seneca, in 2018. A Daily Mail report earlier this month alleged that, in private messages found on his laptop, Hunter ordered Roberts to be kicked off the firm’s health insurance after she gave birth.

In his recent memoir, “Beautiful Things,” Hunter claimed he didn’t even remember the encounter that begot him a daughter.

“My relationship with Hallie [Biden] belonged to a whole other category, and the other women I’d been with during rampages since my divorce were hardly the dating type,” Biden wrote.

“We would satisfy our immediate needs and little else. I’m not proud of it. It’s why I would later challenge in court the woman from Arkansas who had a baby in 2018 and claimed the child was mine – I had no recollection of our encounter. That’s how little connection I had with anyone.

“I was a mess, but a mess I’ve taken responsibility for.”

Hunter Biden’s “taken responsibility for” this mess, yet he won’t even mention Lunden Roberts or his daughter by name in his memoir.

Sasha Obama’s name, on the other hand, comes readily to his mind.

Given the other unpleasant surprises that doubtlessly lie on the laptop that keeps on giving — as well as that pesky tax investigation — one doesn’t see 2021 getting any brighter for Hunter Biden.

Sheriff's Helicopter Swoops In on People Trapped by Floodwaters, Camera Catches Daring Rescue in First-Person View

As floodwaters deluged parts of Arizona, a daring helicopter rescue Friday plucked two people from a mobile home that was caught in fast-moving water. Monsoons struck Arizona last week, triggering severe flooding. Drivers who tried to make their way across flooded roads, despite advice to avoid driving, often became stranded. Floodwaters rushed through streets in Flagstaff, Arizona after storms brought heavy rainfall. Weather warnings have been issued to locals residents to warn of more flooding and heavy downpour. pic.twitter.com/X8lHGS8yEK — Newsweek (@Newsweek) July 19, 2021 On Friday, Daisy Mountain Fire and Rescue received a report of a mobile home that was caught in the flooding in New River. The water was too high for any ground units to reach those trapped inside. Authorities reported that water was pouring through the windows of the mobile home, and officials were afraid it would tip over, according to KNXV-TV. That left one option — an air rescue. A Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office helicopter flew to the partially submerged vehicle. In a video released by the sheriff’s office, which dramatically shows the extent of the waters rampaging through New River’s streets, the helicopter closes in on a vehicle with two people sitting on it, only a few feet from the rapidly rising water. We are here to provide #safety to our community but please be mindful of the dangers posed by moving water and entering flooded areas. Here’s a video of our MCSO aviation unit rescuing a driver after his vehicle got stuck in a wash. pic.twitter.com/tO3TL12tPw — Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (@mcsoaz) July 24, 2021 “We are here to provide #safety to our community but please be mindful of the dangers posed by moving water and entering flooded areas.

Off-Duty Firefighter Jumped by Mob Who Tell Him It's 'Fight Night' Before Brutal Beating

Asking for a little old-fashioned respect can be the prelude to a beatdown in Mayor Bill de Blasio’s New York City. The New York Post has released video of a Friday night incident in which a rabid mob of teenagers surrounded and then attacked an off-duty firefighter as he walked his dog near his home in the borough of Queens. Republican mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa, who founded the civic protection group the Guardian Angels in 1979, posted the video to Twitter. Warning: The following video contains graphic images and language that some readers will find disturbing. Last night in Middle Village a mob of kids attacked a man who asked them to stop blasting fireworks. #NYPD from the 104th precinct were there but did nothing. The community reached out to #NYC Mayoral candidate #CurtisSliwa & the #GuardianAngels to find these vicious teens pic.twitter.com/uVJkBUJ0L1 — Curtis Sliwa for NYC Mayor (@CurtisSliwa) July 24, 2021 The 44-year-old victim, whose name was not released by the Post, said he is among those who have objected to the deterioration of his community,  and taken the dangerous stand of telling teenagers to behave as if rules really mattered. Retribution for preaching civility arrived Friday night. “There were at least 100 kids … I was walking my dog. They just picked me out and approached me,” the firefighter told the Post in a Saturday interview. “One kid took his shirt off and said, ‘it’s fight night!’ He said he was 19 and said, ‘I could fight you.’ Everyone took their cell phones out. There were cell phones everywhere,” the victim said. “They all came at me…A kid came up behind me and hit me in the back of the head with a bottle and I let go of the dog,” he said. With the dog barking…
