HUNTER Biden filmed himself smoking drugs and drinking hard seltzer in a float tank during a detox — paid for after a $75,000 handout from his dad Joe.
Exclusive footage from The Sun shows the President’s deeply concerned son suffering a blow from a crack pipe at a health spa in Newburyport, Massachusetts in January 2019.
Hunter, 52, is first seen levitating and touching sexually while funky ambient music plays in the background.
He then exits the tank briefly and comes back with the drugs and a can of black cherry-flavored White Claw.
At the end of the disturbing video, Hunter stares eerily into the camera while the fluorescent green light from the sensory deprivation tank reflects off his drug-ravaged face.
The revelations come after the President invited Hunter to the Fourth of July fireworks display on the White House balcony on Monday.
Hunter shot the footage after traveling to the North Shore area near Boston to get sober. His father wired him tens of thousands of dollars for treatment and told him to “stick with it.”
He was mentored by now-disgraced celebrity psychiatrist Keith Ablow, 60, as he tried to break free from his crack cocaine addiction.
But text messages and other evidence show Hunter continued to get high instead of confronting his demons.
The materials were found on a bombshell iPhone backup on Hunter’s infamous “laptop from hell,” which the New York Post first began reporting three weeks before the 2020 presidential election.
They were given to The Sun by Marco Polo, an organization run by a former Trump White House aide, who are examining the laptop.
Experts warned that the information could have posed a serious risk of blackmail for the president’s son.
Campbell Murray, a former global head of cybersecurity for smartphone brand BlackBerry, told The Sun: “If a backup is decrypted and contains compromising, offensive or even illegal material, it means that as the son of an incumbent president, this is a big deal Amount of leverage on that person.
“Anyone who received this footage could say to him, ‘I’m going to show the world what you’ve done or what you’ve got on your phone.’
“If this material does get into the hands of a nation-state actor, a foreign intelligence agency, or anyone desiring to exert leverage against a political party or movement, that would be a huge card for them.”
In a text from early December 2018, Hunter asked his father to send him money for treatment, claiming he was struggling to pay his daughters’ rent, child support, health care and daily bills.
The President responded ten minutes later and said, “Ok, how do you want to do that, I can pay your tuition directly and your accommodation and give you the rest.”
In between sending and receiving texts to and from his father, Hunter was also communicating with a call girl he had seen.
He sent the woman a selfie of himself being injected with the powerful sedative ketamine intravenously.
After explaining that he was on “ketamine infusion therapy,” she replied, “That’s good baby what does it matter.”
The next day, Joe Hunter shared via text message: “75 will be wired today. Love.” Hunter replied, “I love you.”
Joe added: “Got Finnegan’s rent. Naomi in good shape” in reference to two of Hunter’s daughters.
That night, Joe wrote again to say, “Proud of you. Keep doing. Everything else will work. With love, father.”
Hunter promised to pay his father back the therapy money, but received a text message from him that evening saying, “I’m not worried about the payback.”
The President previously admitted to his son that he inherited the addiction from himself and his late wife, Hunter’s mother Neilia Hunter.
In a text message sent in June 2018, he told Hunter, “You always made me proud for catching Mommy and I’s illness, but you are strong and brave and have so much more to give.”
Neilia died in a car accident in 1972 along with Hunter’s sister Naomi.
Hunter and his older brother Beau were seriously injured but survived.
Beau tragically died of brain cancer in 2015 at the age of 46.
Further exchanges of texts from the iPhone backup show that Hunter was distraught when he turned to Ablow for help with his drug problem.
In October 2018, shortly before treatment began, Hunter had been involved in a bizarre incident involving a firearm.
Hallie, his brother Beau’s widow — with whom Hunter was romantically involved at the time — took Hunter’s .38 caliber revolver from his truck in Wilmington, Delaware, and threw it in a trash can behind a grocery store.
When she came back to get it, Hallie found it was gone.
There were later allegations of an attempted cover-up by the Secret Service.
A few months after the gun scandal, on New Year’s Day 2019, Hunter wrote to Ablow: “Really Keith, now I want you to tell me what to do? My selection doesn’t work.
“I surrender my will to God and Keith Ablow.
“I trust you to make a plan that is love and compassion but stern, but never one that requires me to be ashamed and ostracized.
“I mean Keith makes a decision for me because I know mine won’t be one without an emergency exit.”
Ablow replied: “You can stay behind my office … with a sober companion and get tested (for drugs).
“We will do the ketamine etc.
“Then if you’re still using, I’ll put you on a 30-day program myself.”
Hunter made it clear where the money came from when he texted Ablow: “By the way my dad pays for everything I need.”
During a text exchange, Hunter moaned to Ablow that he was treated like “the boy who cried wolf” for saying his life, reputation, business and soul were at stake.
He added sullenly, “What else can you do but stare back and say no one understands what it’s like to be me.”
The flotation tank video was filmed at the now defunct Blue Water Wellness Center that Ablow operated in Newburyport.
An image obtained by The Sun shows Hunter and Ablow posing together while smoking cigarettes, taken around the same time as the video.
Just weeks later, it emerged that Ablow had been accused of sexually exploiting patients.
His license to practice medicine was suspended indefinitely in May 2019 and three misconduct lawsuits were settled out of court this summer.
The state of New York also suspended his license to practice medicine.
According to an expert consulted by the Boston Globe, Ablow appeared to have gained control of an Ohio patient by taking ketamine along with talk therapy.
In February 2020, its Newburyport offices were raided by the DEA over allegations of illegal prescription drug diversion, but the raid resulted in no charges.
Ablow told The Sun: “I’ve worked with people who have faced demons of all kinds and the work is seldom easy or predictable and I still hold it in high regard.
“I have made it a habit not to speak publicly about anyone the media says was my client, including some people at least as well known as Mr. Biden.
“It was baffling to me to what extent alleged medical-related material was considered fair game for the public to see.
“I never thought that people who, like me, have made careers in the media would find this appropriate.”
Asked about his own fall from grace, Ablow defended himself by saying: “I have treated members of the President’s cabinets. I’ve treated serial killers. I have taken on the most difficult cases from all over the world.
“I’d be the last person to wonder if they didn’t get away with it unscathed.”
The Sun has reached out to a Hunter Biden and White House representative for comment.
