The White House is refusing to reveal why Democrat President Joe Biden’s son Hunter is not listed on official flight manifests when he can be seen boarding the taxpayer-funded planes.
Hunter Biden frequently travels aboard Air Force One and Marine One.
However, the White House doesn’t include his name on the flight manifest shared with reporters.
According to the Washington Examiner, the White House recently defended its decision to exclude the first son from any passenger lists for presidential aircraft.
Critics demand that such information be made public, as taxpayer money is used to fund flights aboard Air Force One and Marine One.
While a president’s family, including children, have traditionally flown aboard both aircraft, it’s a matter of Hunter Biden’s current legal situation that has many concerned.
During a press briefing on Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked why Hunter Biden is being kept off of passenger lists.
The latest instance came as the family flew back to Delaware “to mark the anniversary of the 1972 car crash that killed Biden’s first wife, Neilia, and their then-1-year-old daughter Naomi.”
“That’s something that we’ve never done,” Jean-Pierre told reporters when asked about Hunter traveling aboard Marine One.
She added, “This is the family.
“The family gets to travel with the president, and that’s been the case with every other president.
“And so it’s not something that we’ve done or we would be doing moving forward.”
When pressed on the matter, Jean-Pierre, once again, dodged the question.
“As it relates to the past couple of days, as I just stated to your colleague, is that the president and [his] family were obviously, it was a somber anniversary that they were recognizing,” Jean-Pierre said.
“So you can imagine what that is like for them.”

Hunter Biden has generated several headlines over the past weeks, including a round of indictments out of California.
Both Hunter Biden and the White House have worked overtime to dodge his legal hang-ups.
Their main tactic is for Hunter to play the victim card as it relates to his recovery from drugs and alcohol.
With the White House refusing to say why it’s leaving him off the flight lists, it’s no wonder the American public continues to have questions.
