In less than 48 hours last week, First Lady Jill Biden traveled from a ceremony in Normandy commemorating the 80th anniversary of the D-Day invasion in France, to a courtroom in Delaware where Hunter Biden is being tried in a gun case, and then back to Paris for a formal visit at Élysée Palace.

“We’re back again,” remarked the first lady with a smile upon being welcomed by French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte, at the palace on Saturday, acknowledging her travels across the Atlantic.

It highlighted the significant efforts the Biden family has made to support Hunter Biden during his trial in Wilmington, Delaware, where he faces charges of lying on a federal gun purchase form by denying a drug issue.

Jill Biden has been a regular presence in the courtroom, accompanied by various family members.

“The back and forth, balancing family responsibilities, duties as first lady, her career, and the campaign — that’s just who she is,” explained Elizabeth Alexander, the first lady’s communications director.

Every family deals with personal challenges, and politicians often navigate these dynamics in the public eye. However, the extensive scrutiny in court of sensitive details about Hunter Biden’s addiction, particularly during an election year, is particularly intense.

The president’s family has shown strong support to ensure Hunter Biden doesn’t face this trial alone.

The trial will resume on Monday. Hunter Biden has pleaded not guilty to the charges, though he acknowledges struggling with drug issues. His memoir, “Beautiful Things,” chronicles his journey through addiction following his brother Beau’s death in 2015 from cancer.

His legal team argues that at the time he purchased a revolver in 2018, he did not see himself as an “addict.”
