In his new autobiography “Beautiful things” Hunter Biden, the son of President Biden explains how he lived with a homeless woman who taught him how to smoke crack.
Hunter first met Rhea as a college senior and ended up she moved into his apartment a decade later for 5 months.
Hunter writes “almost anyone who lives or works in DC has at one time or another seen Bicycles [Rhea] weaving in and out of traffic or swerving around sidewalk pedestrians on a mountain bike that looks three times too big for her. She usually sports a backpack and a baseball cap, and has a sharp, piercing voice that can be heard a block away as she shouts for everybody to get the hell out of her way.”
“Rhea eventually moved into my apartment and stayed for about five months. It was raining cats and dogs one evening when she stopped by under my window to see if there was anything I needed. She was soaking wet, and I insisted she come inside,” he continues. “She lugged her bike up to the second floor, saw a mattress in my empty second bedroom, and fell asleep there. The next morning, I went to work and left a spare key…Five days later, I cut her her own set of keys.
“I probably bugged her more than she bugged me. She got mad when I left dirty clothes on the coffee table or spilled vodka on a rug. Mainly, however, we just planted ourselves on the couch and smoked a ton of crack. For endless hours, day after day, it was the same numbing ritual, over and over and over: pipe, Chore Boy, crack, light,” he adds.
