Biden Misstates Number of Grandchildren in Cardi B Interview

Former Vice President Joe Biden misstated the number of grandchildren he has during an interview with rapper and songwriter Cardi B.

Biden, the presumptive Democrat nominee, sat down for an exclusive interview with the popular entertainment figure over the weekend for Elle magazine to discuss the upcoming general election and the novel coronavirus pandemic. During the introductory portion of the interview, Biden and Cardi B talked about their families and how difficult it could be to stick to a schedule of events while raising small children.

“You’re telling me? I’ve got four kids, five grandchildren — c’mon, I’m an expert,” the former vice president told the rap star. “I understand about kids, the most important thing [is] they come first.”

The number of grandchildren he cited, though, is inaccurate. The Bidens, in fact, have seven grandchildren in total. Two are from their late-son Beau’s marriage to Hallie Olivere, while five are from their son Hunter’s various relationships.
