In an exclusive interview with CBS News, President Biden said that he felt “my boy’s back” when he started to read his son Hunter’s upcoming book. “The honesty with which he stepped forward and talked about the problem. And the hope that — it gave me hope reading it,” Mr. Biden said.
“CBS Evening News” anchor and managing editor Norah O’Donnell spoke to Mr. Biden in the first network news interview he has given since his inauguration.
Hunter Biden, Mr. Biden’s younger son, has struggled with drug addiction throughout his life. He was discharged from the Navy Reserve in 2014 after failing a drug test, and has sought treatment in rehab facilities.
