Former president Barack Obama responded indirectly to leaked text messages that reveal Hunter Biden is comfortable using a racial slur among his friends.

In a new interview with Anderson Cooper, Obama praised his daughters, Sasha, left, and Malia, right, for their personal views on "cancel culture," saying his girls don't expect everyone to be perfect.

"[T]hey have a pretty good sense of 'Look, we don't expect everybody to be perfect. We don't expect everybody to be politically correct all the time, but we are going to call out institutions or individuals if they are being cruel.'"

Some social media users suggest Obama knew the texts would leak, and he was getting ahead of the scandal by rationalizing Hunter's behavior as imperfect.

"If @DonaldJTrumpJr had just ONE text like this, the media mob would be enraged!!! Where is the #cancelculture," wrote one Twitter user.

Another user wrote: "Imagine if this were Don Jr.

The overload of outrage would break Twitter."

Exclusive emails obtained by DailyMail.com reveal Hunter Biden used the N-word in multiple text messages to his white attorney, George Mesires.

The U.S. president's son dropped the N-word multiple times in text messages to his own lawyer -- who didn't object to the word.

In a December 2018 text exchange, Hunter, 51, wrote, "How much money do I owe you. Becaause [sic] ni**a you better not be charging me Hennessy rates."

In another text exchange with his attorney, Hunter wrote: "And I only love you because you're black."

His attorney replied: "It's so annoying when you interject with frivolity."

Hunter responded: "True dat ni**a."

So far, Mesires has not commented on the brewing scandal publicly.

As of Wednesday, only Fox News, Yahoo News, the Washington Examiner and the NY Post had covered Hunter's text message scandal.

Twitter user and conservative journalist Benny (@bennyjohnson) wrote:

"Weird how everyone who screamed about 'racism' & 'white supremacy' for the last 4 years are completely *silent* about member of the First Family Hunter Biden using the N-word multiple times along with racist stereotypes & memes.

Isn't this what you have been waiting for?"

Exclusive emails obtained by DailyMail.com reveal Hunter Biden is very comfortable using the N-word among his white friends.

The U.S. president's son dropped the N-word multiple times in text messages to his own lawyer -- who didn't object to the word.

In a December 2018 text exchange, Hunter, 51, wrote, "How much money do I owe you. Becaause [sic] ni**a you better not be charging me Hennessy rates."

In another text exchange with his attorney, who is Caucasian, Hunter wrote: "And I only love you because you're black."

His attorney replied: "It's so annoying when you interject with frivolity."

Hunter responded: "True dat ni**a."

The text exchange was recovered from a laptop confirmed to belong to Hunter.

Also on the laptop was a meme of former President Barack Obama embracing his then-vice president Biden. Obama is pictured with Joe and Hunter in a photo dated January 30, 2010.

The meme reads: "Obama: Gonna miss you, man Joe: Can I say it? Just this once? Obama: *sigh* go ahead Joe: You my n***a, Barack"

The texts emerged just days after Hunter's father, Joe Biden gave a speech on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa massacre in Oklahoma.

As the texts went viral on Tuesday, many on social media said Hunter Biden is "cool," and they see no problem with his use of the N-word.

One DailyMail.com reader wrote:

"All the Mail readers cry themselves to sleep every night because Biden whooped their boy in the election and his son is cool."

The story was barely covered by the majority Democrat news media in America.

LGBT community is outraged after President Donald Trump's eldest son, Donald Jr, made an insensitive joke about Hunter Biden's corruption scandal.

Speaking to a crowd at a Daytona Beach shooting range on Wednesday, Don Jr. said he would be in jail if he was in Hunter's shoes.

Hunter Biden is accused of taking advantage of his father Joe Biden's public office to enrich himself to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars from foreign entities.

The evidence detailing the corruption was found on a laptop that Hunter dropped off at a Delaware shop for repair in 2019.

"They impeached Donald Trump for being right about Joe Biden," Don Jr. told the crowd.

"I'd be in jail a long time ago. I'd call my friend Kyle, I'd say put me on the phone, I'll be in Rikers Island prison, I'd be feeding quarters into a pay phone trying to do a little rally."

He continued: "I'd try to give a stump speech doing my best not to drop the soap. It's true!" he said as the crowd laughed.

But not everyone found his joke amusing.

One Twitter user wrote: "Don Jr. makes jail soap 'joke' talking about Biden corruption (Don't worry @DonaldJTrumpJr we are holding "The Epstein Suite" for you for a January Arrival!)."

Another user wrote: "You'll be seeing those red flashing lights more in the near future. Don’t drop the soap!!"

And a third tweeted: "This a@@hole @DonaldJTrumpJr will be in prison soon enough. Settledown, Jr.! Don Jr. makes jail soap 'joke' talking about Biden corruption."

Rudy Giuliani denies being "inappropriate" with an actress in a controversial scene in the new Borat sequel.

Giuliani, President Trump's attorney, responded to a prank scene from the movie sequel by notorious troll Sacha Baron Cohen, aka Borat, back in July.

The plot of Cohen's satirical movie involves a fictional reporter (Cohen) traveling from Kazakhstan to the U.S. to give his fictional daughter away to a powerful politician.

Giuliani was duped by Cohen and his "daughter” (actress Maria Bakalova) who both posed as conservative TV journalists.

Cohen is easily recognizable from previous pranks in his first movie. So he wore a disguise to meet with Giuliani.

After their meeting, Giuliani accompanied Bakalova, 24, back to her hotel room.

The story was revived on Wednesday when Cohen shared a promotional photo from his movie that showed Giuliani laying on his back on a bed while reaching into his pants.

Giuliani claims he reached into his pants to tuck in his shirt when Cohen (as Borat) burst into the hotel room wearing a pink onesie and shouted, "She's 15! She's too young for you!"

Fearing he was being set up for a blackmail scam, Giuliani called the police to report the incident.

In a statement to the NY Post in July, Giuliani said:

"This guy comes running in, wearing a crazy, what I would say was a pink transgender outfit. It was a pink bikini, with lace, underneath a translucent mesh top, it looked absurd. He had the beard, bare legs, and wasn't what I would call distractingly attractive. This person comes in yelling and screaming, and I thought this must be a scam or a shakedown, so I reported it to the police. He then ran away."

In his response to the photo on Wednesday, Giuliani said, "The Borat video is a complete fabrication. I was tucking in my shirt after taking off the recording equipment.

"At no time before, during, or after the interview was I ever inappropriate. If Sacha Baron Cohen implies otherwise he is a stone-cold liar."

Giuliani said the incident won't distract him from exposing Joe Biden as a former vice president who used his office to enrich himself and his family.

Giuliani promised more bombshell leaks from Hunter Biden's laptop -- the same laptop that has been in the FBI's possession for over a year.

"We are preparing much bigger dumps off of the hard drive from hell - of which Joe Biden will be unable to defend or hide from. I have the receipts," Giuliani said.

The FBI confirmed this week that the contents of the hard drive are "authentic" and the emails and texts are not part of a Russian disinformation campaign.

The laptop is reportedly linked to an FBI probe into "criminal" money laundering activity, possibly involving the Bidens.

Republican lawmakers are inquiring if the FBI sat on the laptop while President Trump was being impeached for asking questions about Hunter Biden's involvement in the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Senator Kamala Harris canceled her travel plans after two campaign staffers tested positive for Covid-19.

The vice presidential candidate was not in close contact with either of the two infected staffers.

Her campaign made the decision to cancel her travel plans "out of an abundance of caution and in line with [the] campaign's commitment to the highest levels of precaution."

The news comes a day after presidential candidate Joe Biden called a press lid to avoid questions about a bombshell email leak that compromised his son, Hunter Biden.

Some of the emails conflict with denials Joe Biden made saying he never met with officials at a Ukraine gas company that hired Hunter Biden and paid him $50,000 a month.

In one email dated 2015, a Burisma official thanked Hunter for arranging a meeting with his father, Joe, then-vice president for Barack Obama.

But Biden's camp claimed there was no such meeting on Biden's "official” schedule for that time period.

After the email leaked on Wednesday, Biden's camp released a statement admitting for the first time that Biden "probably" met with the official.

Some 40,000 emails and thousands of text messages were found on the hard drive of a laptop computer at a repair shop in Delaware in 2019.

When the laptop's owner missed the 90-day deadline to pick up the laptop, it became the property of the repair shop. The shop owner turned the hard drive over to the FBI, but he never heard back from them.

Fearing a coverup at the federal level, the shop owner contacted President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani, who leaked the emails and explicit photos to the New York Post.

Former vice president Biden is still expected to participate in Thursday's town hall event on ABC News.

His campaign is furious that President Trump's town hall event will air at the same time, 8 p.m. ET Thursday on NBC.

Trump is expected to discuss the damaging emails found on Hunter Biden's laptop.

Joe Biden called a "press lid" Wednesday morning after bombshell emails and photos were released that appear to show his son Hunter engaging in sex acts and smoking a crack or meth pipe in bed.

The photos and emails were part of a cache of documents discovered on a laptop computer that was never picked up from a computer repair shop in 2019.

The store owner in Delaware told the New York Post a customer dropped off the $2,000 laptop for repairs in April 2019.

After no one returned to pick up the laptop, the store owner copied data from the hard drive and contacted the FBI and Donald Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

Giuliani handed the 40,000 documents and photos over to The New York Times.

Among the photos found on the hard drive are sexually explicit images of Hunter engaging in sex acts with an unidentified woman, and smoking what appears to be a crack or meth pipe in bed.

Joe Biden called a press lid this morning, shortly after news of the emails and photos broke.

Most damning for Joe Biden is an email that appears to conflict with the presidential candidate's claim that he never spoke with Hunter about his business dealings in Ukraine.

In the email, a Burisma adviser said it was an "honor and a pleasure" to be introduced to Joe Biden.

He also asked Hunter, 50, for "advice on how you could use your influence" at Burisma.

The email is significant because in 2015 Joe Biden lobbied to get a Ukraine prosecutor fired in exchange for a $1 billion loan from the U.S. to Ukraine.

In a speech in 2018, Biden, 77, described a conversation he had with Ukraine officials: "I looked at them and said: I'm leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you're not getting the money."

The investigator was fired in March 2016.

Hunter joined the Burisma board in 2014, receiving $50,000 a month for a five-year term.

President Trump's long-awaited Senate trial is underway on Capitol Hill. After dispensing of pre-trial procedures last week, the Senate opened Trump's impeachment trial on Tuesday. The trial is expected to wrap up as soon as next week.

Trump was impeached by Nancy Pelosi's House Democrats in December for asking the Ukrainian president to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden for corruption and interfering in the 2016 elections.

High-powered attorneys Alan Dershowitz and Ken Starr head Trump's legal team. Starr prosecuted Bill Clinton during his impeachment.

Adam Schiff said Trump has the right to call witnesses, but Schiff warned Trump's high-powered defense team not to call Hunter Biden as a witness.

Schiff, who heads the Democratic managers for the House, insisted that calling Biden as a witness would amount to "abuse".

Republicans accused Biden of using his power to enrich his sons who earned tens of millions of dollars while Biden was vice president to Barack Obama.

"It would not be appropriate for the president to seek to call witnesses merely to try to perpetuate the same smear campaign that was foiled when his plot was discovered," Schiff said in an interview on the CBS Evening News.

"Hunter Biden, for example, can't tell us anything about whether the president withheld military aid, whether he withheld that aid to coerce Ukraine to conduct political investigations or how he wouldn't meet with the president of Ukraine."

Schiff added: That's an illegitimate abuse of the trial. The chief justice, who may have an opportunity to rule on material witnesses, as well as senators should not permit that kind of abuse."

Former President Barack Obama reportedly told a Democratic candidate that Joe Biden "really doesn't have" a bond with the voters.

According to Politico's Ryan Lizza, Obama held meetings for Democratic candidates in his Washington, D.C. office earlier this year. The candidates were there seeking advice on how to evict President Donald Trump from the White House in 2020.

Lizza reported that Obama provided advice to candidates he met with. The meetings also gave him a chance to get to know each candidate to determine who is most likely to defeat Trump in next year's election.

According to Lizza's source, Obama offered the candidates advice about their strengths and weaknesses. Obama was reportedly "blunt" and honest with weaker candidates who didn't have what it took to defeat Trump.

"And you know who really doesn't have it? Joe Biden," Obama allegedly said.

Obama repeatedly declined to endorse Biden for President in the past, and he has kept his distance from his former vice president who has insurmountable issues that will weigh him down if he is nominated.

DNA has confirmed Robert Hunter Biden fathered a baby girl with a 28-year-old woman in Arkansas last year. Hunter is the son of Joe Biden.

Lunden Roberts filed a paternity lawsuit against Hunter last year, after Hunter did not acknowledge paternity or provide child support for the baby girl.

"DNA testing has established with scientific certainty that the defendant is the father of the plaintiff's child," according to court papers obtained by PEOPLE.

Hunter repeatedly denied fathering a baby with Roberts. Her attorney said she did not want to cause a media spectacle or disrupt Joe Biden's campaign for president.

"She just wants this baby to get financial support from the baby's father," said Clint Lancaster.

Roberts told the Democrat-Gazette she met Biden while she was a student and basketball player at George Washington University.

Although he was old enough to be her father, Roberts said they had a sexual relationship and she never doubted he was the father of her baby.

"My client has never doubted the paternity of this child, has never equivocated," Clint tells PEOPLE. "She has never wavered. She has never doubted the results."

The baby is former Vice President Joe Biden's 5th grandchild. Clint says Roberts hopes the Bidens will choose to have a relationship with the child.

Clint said Roberts's next step will be determining the amount of child support Hunter should pay to Roberts.

Hunter Biden reportedly earned over $20 million from a company in the Ukraine and nearly $1.5 billion from China.

The Bidens are accused of using his position with the Obama administration to benefit financially from foreign governments in a practice known as "influence peddling."

Ukraine's top prosecutor has reopened an investigation into the Burisma gas company that reportedly paid Joe Biden's son, Hunter, $3 million in salary and bonuses.

"We are now reviewing all the cases that were closed or split into several parts or were investigated before," said Ukraine's Prosecutor General Ruslan Ryaboshapka, according to DailyMail.com.

Ukraine's former prosecutor who launched a probe into Hunter Biden’s involvement with Burisma was reportedly fired under pressure from then-Vice President Joe Biden.

The investigation into possible corruption by Joe and Hunter was reopened hours after U.S. President Trump asked Ukraine for assistance investigating the Bidens, saying the country "should investigate" Joe and Hunter Biden.

Trump is on the hot seat for asking a foreign government to help investigate his political rival.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced an official impeachment inquiry into Trump's phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in which Trump asked Zelensky for information on the Bidens.

House Democrats are looking into whether Trump threatened to withhold military aid to Ukraine if the government didn't comply with his wishes.

Trump reportedly fired the U.S. ambassador to the Ukraine after Rudy Giuliani complained she would not launch an investigation into the Bidens.

In an interview with The Associated Press, President Zelensky denied he was pressured by Trump to investigate Joe Biden and his son.

Asked by The Associated Press about Trump's comment Thursday that the U.S. has an "absolute right" to ask foreign leaders to investigate corruption cases, Zelensky said that Ukraine is "open" and that all the cases under investigation are "transparent."

The Bidens are accused of influence peddling by using Joe's position as Barack Obama's vice president to enrich himself and his son.

Hunter reportedly received $1.5 billion from the Chinese government, in addition to $3 million from Burisma gas company and untold millions from other foreign governments while Joe was VP.
