Just to clarify — which Politico opted to not do in this story — Hallie is Joe Biden’s daughter-in-law because she was married to Joe’s deceased son, Beau, not because she is/was married to Hunter. By October 2018, Hunter was divorced from his wife, Kathleen, and was involved in a romantic relationship with Hallie, his sister-in-law and the widow of Beau. That relationship ended in 2019.On Oct. 23, 2018, President Joe Biden’s son Hunter and daughter in law Hallie were involved in a bizarre incident in which Hallie took Hunter’s gun and threw it in a trash can behind a grocery store, only to return later to find it gone.
The incident began when Hallie searched Hunter’s pickup, which was parked at her home in Wilmington, because of unspecified “suspicions she had,” according to the Delaware State Police report. Inside the truck, she found a .38 revolver.
Hallie took the gun to Janssen’s Market, a nearby high-end grocery store where the Bidens are longtime regular customers. There, she tossed the gun, wrapped in a black shopping bag, into a trash bin outside of the store.
