Hunter Biden was asked questions about what kind of crack cocaine he enjoys smoking after he stormed out of a House Oversight Committee hearing on Wednesday.
The 53-year-old made an appearance at his contempt of Congress hearing that seemed to take both the media and lawmakers by surprise.
The son of President Joe Biden was called to testify by House Republicans late last year but he refused, instead reading a statement outside the Capitol.
After some tough questions by Republicans on Wednesday, Hunter Biden left the hearing.
Reporters followed him along the way, asking questions.
It is not quite clear who, but someone could be heard asking the son of the president about his past drug abuse.
“What kind of crack do you normally smoke?” a male voice asked Biden as reporters converged on him.
A moment later, the same person asked, “What kind of crack do you use, Mr. Biden?”
In a follow-up, the man inquired, “Are you on crack today?”
Biden did not answer the question, but the moment went viral on the social media platform X.
The committee later voted along party lines to recommend to the full house that Hunter Biden be held in contempt—hours after he faced tongue lashings from Reps. Nancy Mace of South Carolina and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia.
NBC News reported the vote to slap the younger Biden with a contempt charge was 23-14.
