Hunter Biden sold himself to Chinese and Ukrainian officials as a brilliant conduit to the halls of American power, a closer on the rise who could leverage his vice president father’s clout to get deals done around the globe.
But as his abandoned laptop revealed, behind closed doors the future first son was a crack-addled, selfie-obsessed sex fiend with a roster of hookers bigger than the bureaucracies of some small countries.
And now, an ex-stripper from his past has come forward to confirm the tawdry and pathetic character cloaked in designer suits — and to mock the party boy as a patsy who was led around by the nose, the NY Post reports.
Far from a bull or a bear, the first son was an easily manipulated “puppy” dog, according to the former exotic dancer who went by the stage name Kennedy.
The Post agreed to withhold her real name because she fears for her and her family’s safety.
She admitted she fleeced the first son for nearly $US20,000 ($30,000) during her relationship with him from 2018 to 2019. This was the same period of time Hunter Biden was notoriously polishing his credentials as an international powerbroker and raking in millions for himself and his family.
“He was like a dog that I dragged and led on,” Kennedy, 35, told a researcher from the non-profit investigative organisation Marco Polo in a stunning text exchange obtained by The Post.
“I just led him on and played with him like a walking ATM. I had a few guys like Hunter who I would lead on and take tips and shopping from and leave them ‘hanging.’ It’s part of the stripper gig. Get all you can out of these idiots and move on.”
Kennedy’s remarks come just days after Hunter Biden’s business partner Devon Archer offered testimony to the House Oversight Committee, revealing that Joe Biden phoned into meetings with business associates on at least 20 occasions. Both Hunter Biden and Archer served on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company, whose CEO, Mykola Zlochevsky, also allegedly compared Hunter Biden to a dog.
“Zlochevsky made some comment that although ‘Hunter Biden was stupid, and his dog was smarter,’ Zlochevsky needed to keep Hunter Biden [on the board] ‘so everything will be okay,‘” an FBI informant told the bureau in June 2020. Hunter was appointed to the board of Burisma — despite having no relevant experience — in April 2014 and earned $US83,333 ($127,000) per month. Hunter Biden and his family made at least $US17 million ($26 million) from foreign sources, according to IRS whistleblowers who investigated his finances.
“I was able to finesse Hunter without sex because I’m beautiful and smart,” Kennedy wrote in the phone texts. “I saw a whale and took advantage, It was that easy.”
Kennedy told Marco Polo she met Hunter Biden “through the strip club” and admitted that they “had sex once with protection.”
“He’s a piece of s**t but most addicts are,” Kennedy noted. “He was a f**king crackhead.
“Hunter became useless when I couldn’t extort him any longer.”
She hauled in at least $US19,350 from Hunter Biden between January 2018 and January 2019, according to records contained on his abandoned laptop.
But Kennedy changed her tune in an exclusive interview with The Post this week at her Queens home. She insisted she had been “trolling” Marco Polo and didn’t really mean what she said about Hunter. She also accused Marco Polo of acting unprofessionally.
“He would say aggressive things to me to make me text back,” she said of the Marco Polo researcher who contacted her, adding without evidence that he had been “sexually harassing me through texts for weeks until I finally responded to him.” Marco Polo denied the allegation.
She claimed she met Hunter Biden by happenstance at a tanning salon she owned. She would not give the salon’s name or location.
The heavily-tattooed stay-at-home mum maintained her relationship with Biden was genuine, insisting she never slept with him for cash.
“The girls I knew would meet Hunter when he would frequent the club. He asked one of the girls, ‘Do you know where I could get a good spray tan?’ and they gave him my card,” Kennedy said. “He came to my one-room salon that I rented and got a spray tan. He tipped me $US500 and I was like ‘WTF? Who is this guy?’ And one of the girls texted me that we gave Joe Biden’s son your card.”
She claimed she left stripping in 2016 to work as a professional tanner and go to beauty school.
She insisted payments from Hunter had been only to help with tuition and other life expenses, and that she tried to help him with his addiction.
But texts and images on the hard drive suggest a more intimate relationship, with romantic evenings at NYC hotels.
In one hard drive photo, a fully nude Hunter Biden has his hand around Kennedy’s neck in what appears to be a hotel bathroom, as she seductively poses in fishnet lingerie.
The pair also shared wildly passionate exchanges.
“I’m really in love with you. I know that seems silly and probably a little to [sic] much vulnerability to you but I think you’re extraordinary (when you’re being nice to me) woman and would love to be whatever you would want me to be in your life,” Hunter Biden texted Kennedy December 2018.
The two frequently went out for romps to strip clubs and fancy dinners at posh restaurants such as Nobu. Photos on the hard drive show the two frequently partying together.
In a darker moment, three months later, Hunter Biden confessed to her that he felt suicidal.
“Leave me alone. I’m really close to never f**king caring about whether I exist or not. So just pretend I don’t and everyone else can do the same because clearly I’m making everyone miserable,” he wrote.
Kennedy even met Hallie Biden — Hunter’s sister-in-law who dated Hunter after his brother Beau’s death.
“They came to my salon for a spray tan. This is the only way I know these people, and they would say, ‘Do you want to go have dinner with us?’”
She would often give tanning products as gifts to Hunter’s kids.
Kennedy’s birthday is saved in Hunter Biden’s online calendar — an honour only reserved for Biden family members.
Far from a polished international man of business, she described Hunter as a little lost “puppy.”
“I tried to do damage control when I found out he had been meeting girls from the club. I said do you know how dangerous these people are to have around you without good intentions?” she said.
Intelligence experts agreed, warning that Hunter — who has been open about his drug addiction — posed a national security risk.
“It stands to reason that Hunter would have access to information and influence with his father and that he is in this vulnerable state due to his addictions and proclivities for unseemly behaviour. I think it presents a significant national security threat,” said Steve Friend, a former FBI special agent and senior fellow at the Center for Renewing America, a conservative non-profit.
“Joe Biden has said he is a devoted family man and so he is advertising his own vulnerabilities there. He could jeopardise the security of the nation in order to protect his family member.”
Kennedy said Hunter hinted at the tumult to come when she last saw him in the spring of 2019. Hunter Biden left his laptop at a Delaware computer repair shop in April of that year.
“I was at a beauty convention in Philadelphia and he said to me, ‘I need to talk to you, let’s meet for dinner.’ He said, ‘There are things about me that are coming out. I want you to not believe them. None of them are true,’” she said.
“The last time I saw Hunter he said to me, ‘Promise me that you will just be my friend.’”
