The 51-year-old and his wife, Melissa, allegedly met with several producers in 2019 and pitched a show based on his political family with his father's approval, according to a new book.
In the upcoming book, Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats' Campaigns to Defeat Trump, author Edward-Isaac Dover alleges Hunter spent that entire summer shopping around a reality show which would focus on his charity work and in turn, "soften his father's image."
According to the author, Joe Biden was completely on board with the idea too.
When one producer asked Hunter if his father was okay with the reality show pitch, he allegedly responded, "I know where the line is. And my dad is understanding of what I am up to."
Dover also wrote that Joe beat Donald Trump for the presidential seat "almost in spite of Hunter."
Daily Mail first reported the alleged reality show pitch and pointed out that Biden's son gave several high-profile interviews in an attempt to soften his dad's image and appeal to a larger crowd.
Dover shines a light on several of Hunter's desperate attempts to use the media in his favor which was done without Joe's knowledge, the author claims.
Dover points out that Joe was "always ready to again trust his son to do it right this time."
Hunter's past is riddled with controversy that includes drugs, leaked sex photos, and allegedly prostitutes.
The texts made it appear that Hunter's relationship with his assistant went from professional to her sending him "flirty and personal messages."
Somehow, his dog tag necklaces ended up at her New York apartment.
Daily Mail shared the text messages and emails after obtaining a copy of the hard drive from Hunter's abandoned laptop.
