Hunter Biden WILL address the Democratic National Convention

Hunter Biden will address the Democratic National Convention Thursday night, as he and sister Ashley are included on the schedule to tell the story of their father, Joe Biden, before he gives his keynote speech.  

Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine and China have been political fodder for Republicans throughout Joe Biden’s run for the White House, with Trump’s impeachment based on the president’s quest to have the Ukrainian president announce an investigation into Joe and Hunter Biden. 

He hasn’t been spotted alongside his family during the DNC festivies so far, so it’s unclear if he actually made the trek to Wilmington, Delaware, where Biden and his running mate Sen. Kamala Harris are making their virtual speeches. 

Joe Biden will have some 100 cars worth of supporters on-site for Thursday night’s festivities.  

The campaign has set up a drive-in movie-style big screen and stage outside the Chase Center, where Harris accepted the Democrats’ vice presidential nomination Wednesday night.

The campaign hasn’t responded to DailyMail.com’s request for comment on whether Biden will make his address outside, or come out to greet supporters in their cars afterward. 

The vice president was spotted by TV networks doing a walk-through of the stage earlier Thursday.  

The fourth night of the DNC will also feature a video dedicated to the late Beau Biden, the former vice president’s eldest son – who was Delaware’s attorney general – who passed away from cancer in 2015. The late Rep. John Lewis, who died last month, will also be honored. 

The Biden grandchildren will also be featured in a video. 

They were on hand in Delaware Tuesday night when Jill Biden gave her virtual address to the DNC, from the school in Wilmington where she used to teach. 

The Bidens’ grandkids and daughter Ashley threw confetti at Joe Biden when the Democratic nomination was made official. 

Hunter Biden was not in the shot. 

Hunter Biden’s personal life has also given the family unwanted attention as he dated Beau’s widow Hallie after his brother’s death, had a child out-of-wedlock with a former D.C.-based stripper and then quickly wed his latest wife, Melissa Cohen, who gave birth to a baby boy in April. 

Joe Biden’s speech will be hopeful and forward-looking, as opposed to the dark warning that President Barack Obama offered Wednesday night about re-electing Trump for four more years.  

‘This administration has shown it will tear our democracy down if that’s what it takes to win,’ Obama said from his speech location in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

In his harshest indictment yet of the man who succeeded him in the Oval Office, Obama called Trump lazy, dangerous, and corrupt, accusing him of abusing the military as props, of gassing peaceful protesters and of being willing to do anything for a second term.  

Trump lashed out at his predecessor on Twitter, claiming Obama only endorsed his vice president at the last minute. 

‘WHY DID HE REFUSE TO ENDORSE SLOW JOE UNTIL IT WAS ALL OVER, AND EVEN THEN WAS VERY LATE? WHY DID HE TRY TO GET HIM NOT TO RUN?’ the president tweeted in all capital letters. 

Biden is expected to take the night off from his public sparring with the president, who has dubbed the Democratic candidate as ‘Sleepy’ and ‘Slow Joe.’ 

The night will kick off with remarks from previous Biden competitors Cory Booker, who represents New Jersey in the U.S. Senate, and former South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg. Tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang and former Mayor of New York City Mike Bloomberg will speak before Biden takes the stage.

Also appearing at the unconventional convention Thursday night will be California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Wisconsin Sen. Tammy Baldwin, Illinois Sen. Tammy Duckworth, an Army veteran who lost both of her legs in Iraq and Delaware Sen. Chris Coons.

The night will feature musical performances from singer John Legend, who is very vocal in U.S. politics and endorsed Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren in the Democratic primary, as well as Common, another politically active musician. 

The Chicks, who recently dropped the word ‘Dixie’ from their name in the throes of nationwide Black Lives Matter protests, will also perform. 

‘Veep’ and ‘Seinfeld’ star Julia Louis-Dreyfus will emcee. 

Steph and Ayesha Curry are set to endorse Biden, via video, Thursday night.  

Biden’s speech will almost finish out the night, with a virtual after-party planned, being hosted by Bravo’s Andy Cohen.  

The president has an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity at 9 p.m. Thursday, which is the starting time for the final night of the DNC.
