Live updates: Jury deliberates in Hunter Biden gun trial

It was clear that talking about her father was a very painful subject for Naomi Biden. And even though she graduated from Columbia Law School, she seemed very uncomfortable on the stand after the defender called her to testify Friday in the trial against Hunter Biden.

Naomi Biden entered court Friday with her husband, and first lady Jill Biden immediately motioned for her to come sit next to her among the Biden family and friends who make up at least the first two rows of the room audience.

Naomi Biden’s testimony focused on two instances in 2018 where she saw her father.

The first time was in August or September, when she went to visit her father in Los Angeles. Hunter Biden asked her to come visit him during his stay in rehab. He offered to arrange the trip, and Naomi Biden said she agreed to go, even though she hadn’t seen him in a while.

On the stand, Naomi Biden appeared as authentic and convincing as the child of a drug addict.

She then testified about a trip to New York, where Hunter Biden came to pick up a car. She described seeing him in late October and said she felt “hopeful.” Naomi Biden said her father looked the same as when she saw him in Los Angeles.

During cross-examination by prosecutor Leo Wise, she again testified that she had not seen her father recently because “after my uncle died, things went bad”, around 2015.

Prosecutors got her to admit that she really didn’t know what he looked like when he was using drugs because she hadn’t seen him in a while.

Prosecutors appeared to catch Naomi and defense attorney Abbe Lowell off guard when they presented her with a series of texts she had exchanged with her father during the trip to New York.

Naomi Biden seemed a little confused and reluctant when confronted with texts appearing to show her father was somewhat erratic and uncommunicative when trying to stop his car.

She didn’t remember the exchange and began to seem increasingly uncomfortable as she talked about the text messages her father sent her in the early hours of the morning about trading in his car.

As she left the stand, Naomi Biden gave her father a cool hug, kissed him on the cheek, and was seen trembling and wiping away tears as she left the courtroom.
