When Biden landed in Wilmington, he spoke to reporters there and was asked if he had Baby Beau on board.

“It’s really great,” replied the loving grandfather.

The family outing comes just two weeks after the White House press corps criticized the president for his frequent trips home during the coronavirus pandemic.

Press Secretary Jen Psaki later defended the commander in chief, saying, “The president lives in Wilmington. It is his home. He lived there for many, many years.

“And as you know, like any president of the United States, he takes a private plane called Air Force One to travel there.”

Biden has been candid about his love for his home state, where he lived as a senator before being elected vice president in 2008 and where he returned after leaving the White House in 2017.

Hunter is also said to have split his time between California and Delaware before moving to a family home in Venice earlier this year.

The president’s controversial son made headlines again this week after it was reported that the Secret Service attempted to intervene in a 2018 police investigation involving Hunter and his family. then-girlfriend, his brother’s widow, Hallie.

A report published by Politico revealed that Hallie threw a gun she found in his car into a supermarket trash can because she thought it would kill him.

The FBI was called to the scene and both Hunter and Hallie were interviewed by police.

While the pair were being questioned, Secret Service agents went to StarQuest Shooters – where Hunter had bought the gun – and asked the owner to give them the sales records.

No one in the Biden family was entitled to Secret Service protection at the time, but Politico cites unnamed sources that say agents from the Secret Service offices in Wilmington and Philadelphia played an “ informal ” role in protecting them after Joe left office as vice president in 2017.

Vice presidents are not entitled to lifelong protection from the Secret Service as presidents are.

The Secret Service told Politico that she had no records of any involvement of her agents in the investigation.
