Hunter Biden used the n-word multiple times in conversation with his white, $845-per-hour lawyer, his texts messages reveal.
The shocking texts may prove embarrassing for his father President Joe Biden, who just last week gave a speech decrying racism on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa massacre, and has sought to portray racial justice as a top priority for his administration.
The president’s son joked in a January 2019 text to corporate attorney George Mesires about a ‘big penis’, and said to the lawyer: ‘I only love you because you’re black’ and ‘true dat n***a’.
In another text a month earlier he wrote to the Chicago lawyer saying: ‘how much money do I owe you. Becaause (sic) n***a you better not be charging me Hennessy rates.’
Mesires replied: ‘That made me snarf my coffee.’
Hunter added: ‘That’s what im saying ni…’, cutting off the racial slur mid-word, then texted a picture to Mesires.
Text messages recovered from Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop show the president’s son (pictured last month) used the n-word multiple times in casual conversation with his lawyer George Messires, who is white
A December 2018 text message exchange obtained by DailyMail.com show Hunter asked Mesires: ‘How much money do I owe you. Becaause (sic) n***a you better not be charging me Hennessy rates’
In another exchange the following month, Hunter flippantly addressed Messires as ‘n***a’ again and cracked jokes saying ‘I only love you because you’re black’ during a seemingly somber conversation
The picture was not downloaded on Hunter’s laptop, from which the text exchange was recovered by DailyMail.com.
But Mesires replied: ‘Why are you so tan?’
‘I’m sorry for sexting you accidentally that was meant for another friend named Georgia,’ Hunter replied.
In the January text exchange, the two men were talking about philosophy and bantering with each other.
Mesires: ‘There are ideals of unconditional love that serve as proxies. I don’t have many. You. God,’
Hunter: ‘OMG n***a did you just a fictional character from the imagination of the collective frightened and my dead brothers unconditional love is what I should rely on and my kids aren’t children George.’
Mesires: ‘My parents love was conditioned.’
Hunter: ‘My penis as of late has been un conditional.’
Mesires: ‘That’s why we are searching.’
Hunter: ‘For my penis.’
Mesires: ‘And we will always be searching.’
Hunter: ‘Its big penis George. They always find it. And I only love you because you’re black.’
Mesires: ‘It’s so annoying when you interject with frivolity.’
Hunter: ‘True dat n***a. But I’m done my rant.’
Among the photos stored on Hunter’s laptop was a meme of his father and President Obama that also included the n-word, though it is unclear why he saved it
The meme, dated June 5, 2017, was in reference to Obama and Biden’s White House departure in 2016. Hunter is pictured with his father and President Obama in 2010
In October 2018 Mesires sent a bill to Hunter’s business partner Mervyn Yan, involved in his infamous deal with Chinese oil giant CEFC, showing the attorney’s hourly rate of $845.
The bill, which included ‘teleconferences with H. Biden regarding Hudson West’, Hunter’s joint venture with the Chinese, totaled $88,465, for 107 hours work from August 2017 to April 2018.
Among the photos stored on Hunter’s laptop was a meme which also included the n-word.
Hunter said the racial slur multiple times while speaking to Chicago corporate attorney George Mesires – who is reported to have an hourly rate of $845
The meme, dated June 5, 2017, included a photo of Joe Biden hugging Barack Obama with a caption describing a joke conversation between the former president and vice president.
‘Obama: Gonna miss you, man
‘Joe: Can I say it? Just this once?
‘Obama: *sigh* go ahead
‘Joe: You my n***a, Barack’
It is unclear why Hunter saved the meme on his computer.
Neither he nor Mesires responded to DailyMail.com’s request for comment.
The president’s son and the White House have repeatedly failed to respond to any requests from DailyMail.com about any of the material on his laptop.
The 51-year-old’s computer had a week of his internet browsing history from March 2019 saved on it before he abandoned it at a Delaware shop, which showed pornographic photos and videos downloaded on his laptop included an orgy between a woman and several black men.
Hunter’s father has attempted to make race a central issue in both his presidential campaign – which came amid nationwide protests over racism and police brutality in 2020 – and in his administration.
The messages have emerged just days after Joe Biden gave a speech decrying racism on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa massacre in Oklahoma
In a speech last week on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa massacre in which a white mob killed an estimated 300 black people in Oklahoma, Joe Biden said he had come to ‘fill the silence’.
‘Some injustices are so heinous, so horrific, so grievous, they cannot be buried, no matter how hard people try,’ he said. ‘Only with truth can come healing.’
Biden pledged to help fight racism in policing following George Floyd’s death, and has even backed studies exploring reparations for slavery and other injustices against African Americans.
The president picked the US’s first black vice president, and was himself VP to the first black president.
In an interview on NBC’s Today show in April, the president said he did not believe that the country was racist.
The texts may prove embarrassing to the president, who has sought to portray racial justice as a top priority for his administration
‘I don’t think America is racist,’ he said. ‘but I think the overhang from all of the Jim Crow—and before that, slavery—have had a cost.
‘After 400 years African Americans have been left in a position where they’re so far behind the eight ball in terms of education, health—in terms of opportunity.
‘We have to deal with it.’
Biden was previously the subject of a smear attempt that claimed he had used the n-word as a racial epithet.
The smear used a video of a 1985 Senate hearing in which Biden says ‘We already have a n****r mayor, we don’t need any more n****r big shots!’
The then-senator did utter the words, but was in fact quoting a Louisiana lawmaker, asking then-deputy attorney general nominee William Bradford Reynolds why he had ignored the racist comments by the lawmaker and allowed gerrymandering that underrepresented black residents.
However, some attitudes towards uttering the n-word even in quotes have turned since the 1985 hearing.
In October 2020, a first-year student at Rutgers Law School in Newark used the word while quoting from a 1993 legal opinion in class, warning her fellow students beforehand that the quote contained the slur.
The student said: ‘He said, um – and I’ll use a racial word, but it’s a quote. He says, ‘I’m going to go to Trenton and come back with my n*****s”.’
A race row erupted last month when her fellow students circulated a petition demanding she and professor apologize.
The New York Times reported that University staff discussed barring the word’s use in class in a meeting following the row.
