Social media users branded the pair ‘dumb and dumber’ after they laughed together about how the president’s son used to smoke crack cocaine and then take his clothes off.
‘Pants were the problem,’ the 51-year-old told Kimmel during the interview to promote his new memoir.
But some viewers were less than impressed by their attitude towards cocaine and, more broadly, how the late night host failed to grill Hunter on his role on the board of Ukrainian gas firm Burisma or the infamous contents of his laptop.
‘You know what’s worse than Hunter’s stupidity? It’s Jimmy Kimmel’s stupidity. He’s talking to Hunter about Burisma and the laptop as if it was a lie. Dumb and dumber 2,’ one user tweeted.
Another wrote: ‘Jimmy Kimmel why are you having a criminal on your show. I have no respect for you or your show. I understand you are serious liberal but there are fact this guy done something shady and you bring him to hunter Biden makes you looks like an idiot.’
A third tweeted: ‘Watching the media and Democrats trying to humanize him has been something to behold. Hunter was on f****ing Jimmy Kimmel last night. The stuff we know about how alone is awful but what we don’t know is likely so much worse.’

Kimmel did touch on topics including Burisma and the laptop but he never pressed Hunter for an answer and gave any controversy a wide berth, allowing the president’s son to steer their conversation back to his book.
The laptop became a source of interest during the presidential campaign, not just for the salacious contents including Hunter having sex with women and smoking drugs, but there were also claims it had dossiers which showed that Joe Biden was inextricably linked to Hunter’s business dealings.
‘I saw you talking about the laptop in interviews and it became a big thing and when you are asked if it’s your laptop, you say, you don’t know,’ said Kimmel.
‘And that is hard to believe unless you read the book and then I’m surprised you have shoes on.’
Biden, who writes in graphic detail about his crack addiction, replied: ‘Yeah, I made it today. Pants were the problem.’
The flippant remark was all the more ironic because one of the photos found on the abandoned laptop shows Hunter standing in his underwear.
He returned to the subject of the laptop, which was handed in to a repair shop in Wilmington, Delaware, and never collected.
Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani then shopped it around to different newspapers.
‘I really don’t know,’ he said.
‘And the fact of the matter is, it’s a red herring. It is absolutely a red herring.
‘I absolutely think within my rights to question anything that comes from the, from the desk of Rudy Giuliani. And so, I don’t know. Is the answer.’
Kimmel asked: ‘Do you ever wish you had Apple Care?’
Biden conceded: ‘That would have been a good idea.’
Biden also spoke about his controversial appointment to the board of Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings, which critics have claimed he was unqualified for and was only given because his father was Vice President at the time.
He said: ‘Go to the beginning. I went to Yale law school. I served on a dozen boards before Burisma, I was a vice chairman of the board in Amtrak, and chairman of the board at the World Food Program U.S.,supporting the largest humanitarian organization in the world.
‘I had an expertise in corporate governance and I was a lawyer. Which was how I was first approached. However, what I didn’t take in to account was the way in which they would use the perception against my dad.
Biden, seen in a photo which was found on his laptop, joked on Thursday night that ‘pants were a problem’ when he was on crack
‘I would not do it again for that reason.’
The California-based father of five spoke after DailyMail.com confirmed that the laptop was indeed his.
DailyMail.com commissioned top cyber forensics experts Maryman & Associates to analyze its data and determine whether the laptop’s contents were real.
The firm’s founder, Brad Maryman, is a 29-year FBI veteran Supervisory Special Agent who served as an Information Security Officer and founded its first computer forensics lab.
Maryman and his business partner Dr. Joseph Greenfield used the same forensic tools to pick apart the drive as federal and state law enforcement use in criminal investigations, and prepared a report for DailyMail.com.
The report said the data on the drive ‘appear to be authentic’, and that after an extensive search of its contents for any tell-tale signs of tampering, Maryman and Greenfield found ‘no evidence’ of fabrication – by Russians or anyone else.
‘The data on the system before April 2019 appears to be related to Mr. Biden, with timestamps appearing to be between 2016 and 2019,’ the Maryman and Associates report said.
Hunter on Thursday night thanked his father Joe for loving him and wanting him to get well
‘The operating system timestamps appear to be authentic, and no evidence was found to suggest that the timestamps or data were altered or manufactured. No indications were found that would indicate the data was manufactured.’
Hunter’s new memoir, Beautiful Things, came out Tuesday and promised to give a candid account of the president’s son’s addiction
In a presidential debate in October, Joe Biden referred to the leaks of Hunter’s emails as ‘a bunch of garbage.’
But in an interview with CBS on Sunday to promote his new book, Beautiful Things, Hunter said the laptop ‘could be’ his.
‘There could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me. It could be that I was hacked. It could be that it was the — that it was Russian intelligence. It could be that it was stolen from me or that there was a laptop stolen from me,’ he said.
On Thursday DailyMail.com exposed the secrets of Hunter’s abandoned laptop.
Among the 103,199 text messages on the hard drive dating from 2016 to March 2019 are fraught conversations between President Joe Biden and his son.
The bombshell cache of 103,000 text messages, 154,000 emails, more than 2,000 photos and dozens of videos are packed with revelations conveniently missing from the memoir, including:
- How he begged his father to run for president in 2019 to salvage Hunter’s own reputation
- How he repeatedly dodged police action against him, despite constantly dealing with drug pushers and prostitutes and having multiple run-ins with law enforcement
- Hunter was guarded by a Secret Service agent while on a 2018 drug and prostitute binge in Hollywood, despite not being entitled to protection at the time and amid denials from the federal agency
- Joe Biden was afraid his text conversations with Hunter were being hacked even as they discussed his White House bid
- How Hunter’s laptop is brimming with evidence of apparent criminal activity by Hunter and his associates including drug trafficking and prostitution
On Hunter’s laptop he had his own profile on porn site Pornhub where there was content of him in bed with two woman with a small dog nearby. Hunter photographed and filmed himself, often with two prostitutes at a time, in explicit videos

AUTHENTICATING THE LAPTOP
DailyMail.com commissioned cyber forensics experts at Maryman & Associates to examine the hard drive to determine its authenticity.
The firm’s founder, Brad Maryman, was a 29-year veteran of the FBI, served as a Chief Information Security Officer and founded the bureau’s cyber forensics unit. His partner, Dr. Joseph Greenfield, is an associate professor at the University of Southern California and helped write their degree program in intelligence and cyber operations.
After an extensive analysis of the hard drive, Greenfield and Maryman produced a report for DailyMail.com detailing their findings.
Using the same forensic tools as federal and state law enforcement in criminal investigations, they found a total of 103,000 text messages, 154,000 emails and more than 2,000 photos.
– They found emails for multiple accounts on the laptop dating back to 2009, and other data which ‘appears to be related to Mr. Biden’ between 2016 and 2019.
– The report’s findings were consistent with the known timeline for the hard drive. A Wilmington, Delaware computer store work order with Hunter’s signature shows he left his 2017 MacBook Pro laptop there on April 12, 2019.
– The Maryman & Associates report said the original ‘Macintosh HD’ drive was created on March 28, 2018
– Hunter’s iCloud email address was added to the laptop’s system on October 21 2018, as well as his work email at his firm Rosemont Seneca on February 2 2019.
– The same day, a Gmail address he used to log onto sex cam sites, and another personal Gmail address belonging to Hunter, were also added.
– Beau Biden’s old Gmail account was added on February 7 2019.
– Emails addressed to Hunter’s various email addresses dating from December 2009 to December 2020 were found on the system.
– An iPad with the name ‘Hunter’s iPad’ and three email addresses associated with the Biden family was backed up on the laptop and on iCloud in January 2019 and again a month later.
– Greenfield found 818 call logs in this iPad backup with timestamps from June 2016 to February 2019.
– There were 8,942 entries in the iPad’s contacts book, created between April 2016 and January 2019.
– In February 2019 an iPhone XS was also synced with the laptop. Its serial number was consistent with the timestamps of the data on the phone.
In conclusion, ‘The operating system timestamps appear to be authentic, and no evidence was found to suggest that the timestamps or data were altered or manufactured,’ the report said. ‘No indications were found that would suggest the data was manufactured.’
The texts reveal how Joe was sucked into his son’s torrid love life, became a punching bag for Hunter’s drug-fueled rants, and paid his grandchildren’s bills when Hunter had drained his bank accounts from his spending on prostitutes and crack cocaine.
When the former Delaware senator was elected Vice President in 2008, it put an end to Hunter’s lucrative career as a lobbyist to avoid the appearance of conflicts of interest.
Hunter then embarked on a series of controversial business ventures and fell into a cycle of crack and prostitute binges, scandal and rehab.
By 2019 his texts appeared to be seething with resentment.
When Joe texted him a typically doting message ‘Good morning my beautiful son. I miss you and love you. Dad’ on February 24 that year, Hunter raged at his father for ‘having made clear to the world that the only reason for not [running for president is your] family problems im glad to be the f***ing bullseye you painted on my back.’
Hunter complained that his father’s advice to not defend himself in the media over stories about his expensive divorce from his ex-wife Kathleen Biden or his affair with his brother’s widow Hallie had backfired, and added sarcastically: ‘Oh …good morning …from f***ing rehab.’
‘Your team just made me the uncontrollable troubled tax cheat philanderer sex and drug addict that you tried so hard to fix but couldn’t yt. They just totally wrote my life away,’ he wrote.
‘If you dont run ill never have a chance at redemption.’
Joe replied, promising his son he would run for President but adding that he was worried his texts were ‘a target’ for hacking.
The president’s continued forgiveness and offers of money via text to his son after his crack binges – are at odds with his long history of tough stances against drug users and suppliers.
Joe criticized George Bush Sr’s 1980s War on Drugs for being ‘not tough enough’ and wrote punitive laws with harsher sentences for drug crimes when he was head of the Senate Judiciary Committee in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
His son’s drug-fueled calamities have resulted in multiple run-ins with law enforcement that would usually result in criminal charges or investigation, but Hunter has so far avoided the dock.

His laptop, which was handed over to the FBI in 2019, is brimming with evidence of apparent criminal activity by Hunter and his associates including drug trafficking and prostitution.
Photos also show Hunter with cracked and badly damaged teeth – known as ‘meth mouth’ – as he sits in a dentist chair, and another photo showing him visibly balding.
Hunter appeared to be obsessed with making and starring in porn films with prostitutes, videos and photos on his laptop show.
The hard drive contains hundreds of pictures of naked women and naked selfies of Hunter, as well as dozens of videos.
Hunter photographed and filmed himself, often with two prostitutes at a time, in explicit videos that he then posted on adult website Pornhub under the username ‘RHEast’.
Hunter filmed himself with the women from his laptop webcam, sometimes shooting at different angles using an iPad and cell phone.
The sex tapes and shots with hookers are mixed in with family photos, business documents and selfies from his then-lover and brother’s widow Hallie in his laptop’s photos folder.
Texts show he would often order drugs to hotel rooms and take them with the women before or after sex – and photos include bottles of 100mg Viagra pills, the highest dose prescribed by doctors.
His Pornhub account had 66 award badges, including a badge for reaching 50 subscribers, watching 500 videos, and watching porn in high definition.
Hunter would sometimes leave on the webcam after filming his sex scenes, and captured himself hunched over his computer, intently watching back through the footage.
In one video on the laptop, Hunter recorded his screen and can be heard speaking to a woman about his favorite porn stars as he browsed an adult website with her.
