Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, admitted he would smoke parmesan cheese because it reminded him of crack cocaine.

During an interview with Tracy Smith of CBS Sunday Morning, Hunter Biden went into detail about his addiction and how he would pick through the carpeting in search of stray traces of crack cocaine.

“I spent more time on my hands and knees picking through rugs smoking anything that even remotely resembled crack cocaine,” Hunter Biden said.

“I probably smoked more parmesan cheese than anyone that you know, I’m sure, Tracy!” He said. “I mean, I went one time for 13 days without sleeping, and smoking crack and drinking vodka exclusively throughout that entire time.”

Hunter Biden has been promoting his upcoming memoir, “Beautiful Things,” in which he also talks about the similarities between crack cocaine and parmesan cheese.

“It didn’t matter: I smoked it. If it was crack, great. If it wasn’t, I’d take a hit, exhale, and exclaim, “S—, that’s not it – that’s the f—— cheese!”

Hunter Biden’s memoir mainly focuses on his struggle with addiction. The title, “Beautiful Things,” is a phrase he and his brother said to remind each other of the good in life.

“It was the last thing that he said to me: ‘Beautiful things,’ Biden said of his brother.

“Beautiful Things” is available for purchase on Tuesday.

Disney Executive Caught on Tape: ‘There’s No Way We’re Hiring a White Man’

Twentieth Century Television Senior Vice President Michael Giordano was caught on a hidden video saying that Disney explicitly does not hire “white men” for specific roles.

Michael Giordano’s comments are only a few minutes in the video, with some intermittent reactions; however, Giordano says some damaging things about Disney’s hiring practices and inclusion policies.

Certainly, there have been times where, you know, there’s no way we’re hiring a white man for this…. There are times when it’s spoken. 

Reporter: How would they say it?

There’s no way we’re hiring a white man for this role. They’d be very careful how they’d message that to agents. 

Giordano says that Disney CEO Bob Iger “100 percent” has a say in ensuring diversity in casting on Disney’s shows and movies. While it is not a directive from Bob Iger, he says there should be “a certain amount of diversity” in each show.

The reporter asked if this initiative came from Latondra Newton, Disney’s former Chief Diversity Officer, who is African American and left her job last year. However, Senior VP Michael Giordano said that other people in human resources are also focused on diversity in the company.

Giordano went on to say that while only 10-15 percent of the population is gay, he estimates that a third or more of Disney’s writers are gay, and they “lean into gay and transgender stories.”

He went on to say that when it comes to Disney’s hiring practices, there are “certain people that they won’t see.” He said:

When it comes to diversity, there is a belief that it’s just good for society. But there’s also a belief that it’s going to make more money if we appeal to a wider variety of people and it’s a good thing.

We have shareholders too. There are conservative people who don’t lean into it, but you can make the argument that we make more money if we appeal to a wider variety of people.
