Naomi Biden, the granddaughter of President Joe Biden, spoke out this week against Fox News host Jesse Watters over comments he made criticizing the president’s stance on immigration and border issues. Watters claimed during his show Wednesday night that Biden is “bad on the border” because “he’s not the best father.”

“The man can’t say no to his own son,” Watters said in an apparent reference to Hunter Biden, Naomi’s father. “He can’t say stop, he can’t have consequences for actions.”

Naomi took to X, formerly Twitter, late Wednesday to respond, saying “I have heard so many lies about my family, it takes a lot to make me upset. This crosses the line. Not sure how this man can call himself a reporter and I hope he never has a son or daughter who struggles with anything. You can disagree with his policies without being this ugly.”

Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings have been under scrutiny by House Republicans, who are pushing for impeachment investigations into the president. Critics like Watters have claimed the president is too soft on issues like immigration because, according to Watters, “the man can’t say no to his own son.”

The comments appeared to have struck a nerve with Naomi Biden, the president’s oldest grandchild, who said Watters “crosses the line” by making it personal.
