Monday evening on his show, Fox News host Sean Hannity aired a 2018 voicemail sent by President Joe Biden to his son, Hunter, urging him to get help for a substance abuse problem.

In the voicemail, which was obtained by The Daily mail, Joe Biden can be heard telling his son:

“It’s Dad. I called to tell you I love you. I love you more than the whole world, pal. You gotta get some help. I know you don’t know what to do. I don’t either.”

Newsweek reports that after playing the voicemail, Hannity had this to say:

“It’s actually sad.

“Now that voicemail reportedly came at the exact same time Hunter lied on a gun application to buy a handgun.

“By the way, replace the name Biden with Trump and imagine how the mob and the media would be covering all of this. Instead, they’d rather perpetuate one hoax after another, just like they did with the dirty Steele dossier.”

Last week, The Washington Post reported that federal agents investigating Hunter Biden for possible crimes believe there might be enough evidence to bring charges against him for the gun purchase and tax crimes, but that doesn’t mean he will be charged.

Many people wondered why Hannity and Fox had decided to air the voicemail in the first place, especially since all it proves is that the president cares very much for his son and wanted him to get professional help for his addiction problems. How is that newsworthy? It’s not, but it does allow Hannity to remind his viewers that Hunter Biden is under investigation and try to smear the president for the sins of his son.
