Aspiring first lady still doesn't know how many grandchildren she has

Excerpt:

Her Eminence Dr. Jill Biden, Ed.D., probably doesn't have a lot of free time, given her extensive duties as caretaker for her husband Joe, the Democratic nominee for president. That must be why she enlisted a coauthor to carry the load on Joey: The Story of Joe Biden, an illustrated children's book comprising just 27 pages of actual text.

Kathleen Krull was an obvious choice, given her absolute dominance of the woke preschool-age market with titles such as Hillary Rodham Clinton: Dreams Taking Flight, No Truth Without Ruth: The Life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Starstruck: The Cosmic Journey of Neil deGrasse Tyson.

It's safe to assume, however, that Dr. Jill at least wrote her own blurb on the dedication page, which reads: "To my grandchildren: Naomi, Finnegan, Maisy, Natalie, Hunter, and Beau."

This page must have eluded the book's fact-checkers, if there were any, because it simply isn't true. Despite their repeated assertions to the contrary, the Bidens have at least seven grandchildren—not six. Naomi, Finnegan, and Maisy are Hunter Biden's children from his first marriage. Hunter and new wife Melissa Cohen recently celebrated the birth of a son, Beau, named after the deceased brother whose widow Hunter briefly dated. Natalie and Hunter are Beau's children.

Hunter, however, is also the legally acknowledged father of a fifth child—grandchild number seven—identified in Arkansas court documents as "NJR." A DNA test established Hunter's paternity "with scientific certainty." Hunter reached a settlement with the child's mother, Lunden Alexis Roberts—who worked under the stage name "Dallas" at the Mpire Gentlemen's Club in Washington, D.C.—requiring him to make monthly child-support payments. Joe Biden's continued refusal to acknowledge NJR's existence raises serious questions about the former vice president's professed devotion to law and science.

This is all to say that such factual errors would reflect poorly on any author, but are especially egregious when the (acknowledged) author has a doctoral degree in education from the University of Delaware, which Jill does, by the way.

That's a shame, because Joey contains some moving anecdotes about about the former vice president's quaint 1950s upbringing in Scranton, Pa., where Joey and his buddies played fort, romped through the neighborhood, and "pooled their pennies and dropped in at the candy store where the owner kept a pet monkey."

We learn that even at a young age, Joey had a peculiar passion for looking after other people's wives. "When his friend's father left for a weeklong fishing trip, Joey went to visit his friend's mom," writes Dr. Biden. "He promised to take care of her while her husband was away." Old habits die hard. He probably still enjoys playing baseball with nuns as well.

"Corn Pop," the switchblade-wielding gang member who allegedly confronted Biden in the parking lot outside the public pool where Joe worked as a lifeguard, does not make an appearance. (Neither does Tara Reade.) But this time in Biden's life is memorialized—by three sentences of text and an illustration spanning two pages—as the time he "learned firsthand about the struggles of black America" by playing basketball.

She wrote a children's book because she wanted Joe to be able to enjoy it too?

Cringe-worthy seems to be Biden's signature move. 

With all of Dr. Jill's vaunted education, one might have expected a bit more sensitivity and circumspection.  :shrug:

The illustrations resemble if Norman Rockwell had drawn for Judy Blume.  Ever notice that leftists tend to mimic the art styles of the 1930s - 1950s in their works of propaganda?  Or in Jay Carney's case, the kitchen.

Any mention or a chapter on "joey's" brother's government contracts?  And why hasn't Corn Pop shown up anywhere?  How many Corn Pop's can there be?  What a joke.
