Hunter Biden put his personal knowledge of strip clubs to use in 2018 — praising an exotic dancer’s career choice in a recorded conversation that devolved into a two-way therapy session.
“Ninety percent of the strippers I know do it because they truly, truly love it,” the soon-to-be first son reassures the woman during the 15-minute exchange.
“I don’t know that many people who like their job,” he says.
At the time, Biden was keeping former stripper Lunden Roberts — then five-months pregnant with his child — on the payroll of his consulting firm, Rosemont Seneca. The woman on the recording is not identified.
“I talk to strippers — I don’t do anything else,” Biden says at one point in the conversation, as his companion chuckles. “I’ve always said they’re some of the most fascinating people I’ve ever met in my life, some of the most genuine.”
The chat appeared to occur over a meal, with silverware clinking in the background.
“Who in the world can say to a woman that they cannot make a choice for a talent they have?” Biden asks rhetorically, as the two discuss her career.
“But more than talent, it’s something that every woman has. It is the ultimate … toolkit. And women use it whether they are at the checkout line or whether they are at the club.”
The audio file ends abruptly — as Biden switches off a recording device that he appears not to have known had been activated.
