President Joe Biden’s sister Valerie on ‘Joey,’ nephew Hunter

Not since John F. Kennedy has a president been surrounded by such a large and close-knit clan, one that has been a source of both emotional support and political trouble for the commander-in-chief.

  • “We have been best friends our entire lives,” Valerie Biden Owens told USA TODAY.
  • Addiction is a thread that runs through her memoir and through generations of her family.
  • She worries the White House staff does not do a good enough job in spotlighting Biden’s achievements.

NEWARK, Del. – With the Bidens, it’s all in the family.

For better or worse.

There’s the “safe haven” President Joe Biden’s sister Valerie provides in their regular late-night phone conversations, chitchat about nothing after a day that might have been dominated for him by Russian aggression and record inflation. But there’s also the escalating furor around his son Hunter, the subject of a federal investigation and the likely target of Capitol Hill hearings if Republicans win control of Congress in November.
