Hunter Biden joked that “ pants were the problem ” while crunching, insisting he doesn’t know if the laptop was his because it was so disconnected from reality.
The president’s 50-year-old son appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his new memoir, Beautiful Things.
Kimmel asked Biden about his laptop – which became a source of intense interest in the run-up to the election, amid claims that Joe Biden had done business with China and was compromised.
Hunter Biden said on Thursday night that he still had no idea if the laptop belonged to him
“I saw you talk about the laptop in interviews and it became a big thing and when you’re asked if it’s your laptop, you say, you don’t know,” said Kimmel.
“And that’s hard to believe unless you read the book and then I revised that you’re wearing shoes.”
Biden, writing in detail about his crack addiction, replied, “Yes, I made it today. Pants were the problem. ‘
He returned to the subject of the laptop, which was returned to a repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware, and never picked up.
Donald Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, then flipped it around in several newspapers.
“I really don’t know,” he said.
And the fact is, it’s a red herring. It’s definitely a red herring. I absolutely think I have the right to question anything that comes from the, from Rudy Giuliani’s office. And so, I don’t know. Is the answer. ‘
Kimmel asked, “Do you ever wish you had Apple Care?”
Biden admitted, “That would have been a good idea.”
The California-based father of five spoke after DailyMail.com confirmed that the laptop was indeed his.
DailyMail.com commissioned top cyber forensic experts Maryman & Associates to analyze the data and determine if the contents of the laptop were genuine.
The company’s founder, Brad Maryman, is a 29-year FBI veteran Supervisory Special Agent who served as an Information Security Officer and founded his first computer forensics lab.
Maryman and his business partner Dr. Joseph Greenfield used the same forensic tools to disassemble the drive as federal and state law enforcement agencies in criminal investigations, and prepared a report for DailyMail.com.
The report said the data on the disk “appears to be authentic,” and that after an extensive search of the contents for signs of manipulation, Maryman and Greenfield found “no evidence” of manufacture – by Russians or anyone else.
“The data on the system prior to April 2019 appears to be related to Mr. Biden, with timestamps appearing to be between 2016 and 2019,” the Maryman and Associates report said.
The operating system timestamps appear authentic and no evidence was found that the timestamps or data was modified or manufactured. No indications were found that the data was produced. ‘
In an October presidential debate, Joe Biden called the leaking of Hunter’s emails “ a lot of crap. ”
But in an interview with CBS on Sunday to promote his new book Beautiful Things, Hunter said the laptop could be “ his. ”
“There could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me. I may have been hacked. It could be that it was Russian intelligence. It could be that it was stolen from me or that a laptop was stolen from me, ”he said.
Hunter left his MacBook Pro laptop at a computer repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware in April 2019 and never returned for it. The report said the data on the disc “appears authentic,” and that after an extensive search of the contents for signs of tampering, Maryman and Greenfield found “no evidence” of manufacturing – by Russians or anyone else.
AUTHENTICATE THE LAPTOP
DailyMail.com has commissioned cyber forensics experts from Maryman & Associates to examine the hard drive to determine its authenticity.
The company’s founder, Brad Maryman, was a 29-year veteran of the FBI, served as the Chief Information Security Officer and founded the agency’s cyber forensics unit. His partner, Dr. Joseph Greenfield, is an associate professor at the University of Southern California and helped write their training in intelligence and cyber operations.
After an extensive analysis of the hard drive, Greenfield and Maryman prepared a report for DailyMail.com with their findings.
They used the same forensic tools as federal and state law enforcement officers in criminal investigations and found a total of 103,000 text messages, 154,000 emails, and more than 2,000 photos.
They found emails for multiple accounts on the laptop dating back to 2009, and other data that appears to be “ related to Mr. Biden ” between 2016 and 2019.
The report’s findings were consistent with the known hard drive timeline. A work order at the computer store in Wilmington, Delaware with Hunter’s signature shows that he left his 2017 MacBook Pro laptop there on April 12, 2019.
According to the Maryman & Associates report, the original ‘Macintosh HD’ disc was created on March 28, 2018
Hunter’s iCloud email address was added to the laptop’s system on October 21, 2018, as was his business email at his firm Rosemont Seneca on February 2, 2019.
On the same day, a Gmail address used to log into sex cam sites and another Hunter personal Gmail address were also added.
– Beau Biden’s old Gmail account was added on February 7, 2019.
– Emails to Hunter’s various email addresses dating from December 2009 to December 2020 have been found on the system.
– An iPad named “Hunter’s iPad” and three email addresses associated with the Biden family was backed up to laptop and iCloud in January 2019 and a month later.
– Greenfield found 818 call logs in this iPad backup with timestamps from June 2016 to February 2019.
– There were 8,942 entries in the iPad’s contact book, made between April 2016 and January 2019.
An iPhone XS was also synced with the laptop in February 2019. The serial number matched the timestamps of the data on the phone.
In conclusion, “The operating system timestamps appear to be authentic and no evidence was found that the timestamps or data was modified or manufactured,” the report said. “No indications were found that the data was produced.”
Among the 103,199 hard drive text messages dating from 2016 to March 2019 are fraught conversations between President Joe Biden and his son.
The lyrics reveal how Joe got sucked into his son’s scorching love life, became a punching bag for Hunter’s drug-fueled rants, and paid his grandchildren’s bills when Hunter cleared his bank accounts from his spending on prostitutes and crack cocaine.

When the former Delaware senator was elected vice president in 2008, it ended Hunter’s lucrative career as a lobbyist to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest.
Hunter then embarked on a series of controversial business ventures and fell into a cycle of crack and prostitute, scandal and rehabilitation.
In 2019, his lyrics seemed to buzz with resentment.
When Joe sent him a typically loving message: ‘Good morning my beautiful son. I miss you and I love you. Dad ‘on February 24 of that year, Hunter raged at his father for’ making it clear to the world that the only reason not to [running for president is your] family issues, i’m glad i’m the goddamn rose you painted on my back. ‘
Hunter complained that his father’s advice not to defend himself in the media about stories of his expensive divorce from ex-wife Kathleen Biden or his affair with his brother Hallie’s widow had backfired, adding sarcastically admitted: ‘Oh … good morning … from f * ** ing rehab. ‘
Your team just turned me into the uncontrollable, uncontrollable, troubled sex and drug addict of tax fraudsters you tried so hard to solve but couldn’t. They just wrote my life away, ‘he wrote.
“If you don’t get sick, you never have a chance of redemption.”
Joe replied, promising his son that he would run for president, but added that he feared his lyrics were “ a target ” for hacking.
