There are moments when politicians can become strangely human.
According to a report from The New York Post, the widow of Beau Biden, Hallie, is now in a romantic relationship with the former Vice-President’s other son, Hunter. Beau, the dashing former army major and Delaware Attorney General died of brain cancer in 2015. Hunter Biden, 47, is separated from his wife Kathleen.
In the bombshell Post exclusive, former Vice-President Joe Biden confirmed the relationship and said in a statement that he and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, have blessed the union.
“We are all lucky that Hunter and Hallie found each other as they were putting their lives together again after such sadness,” Biden told the Post, “They have mine and Jill’s full and complete support and we are happy for them.”
Beau Biden’s death cut short an enormously promising political career and played a significant role in the decision of his father to not challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party nomination in 2015.
