House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik is blasting President Joe Biden for failing to acknowledge his seventh grandchild - son Hunter's four-year-old daughter Navy Joan - following the conclusion of a heated legal battle with the child's baby mama.
Stefanik, who proudly proclaims herself as the 'newest mom' in Congress, told DailyMail.com that the president should have acknowledged Navy Joan years ago.
'Every American knows that Joe Biden should have done the right thing years ago and acknowledged ALL of his grandchildren,' said Stefanik, R-N.Y.
'It is cold, heartless, selfish, and cowardly that the President of the United States can't show love or compassion to his beautiful granddaughter. America sees this for what it is - an inexcusable disgrace.'
Hunter Biden's baby mama settled their bitter child support suit after the First Son promised to meet their out-of-wedlock daughter and play a role in her life, DailyMail.com exclusively revealed last week.
Years of legal wrangling ended abruptly this week when Lunden Roberts, 32, agreed to slash Hunter's $20,000 monthly payments and drop her petition to have Navy Joan's last name changed to Biden.
Sources say the stunning reversal comes after Hunter told Roberts in private talks that he wanted to end hostilities and 'build a relationship' with the adorable four-year-old.
The pact also paves the way for Navy Joan to eventually meet the rest of the Biden brood - including President Joe and First Lady Jill - for the first time.
While financial details of the settlement remain under seal, court filings indicate that the fledgling artist Hunter, 53, will let his daughter pick out one of his paintings each month as a gift.
But the White House is still refusing to acknowledge the child as family.
During the White House press briefing Wednesday, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre shut down a question on whether Biden would now acknowledge four-year-old Navy Joan as his grandchild after the child support dispute settlement.
'I don't have anything to share from here,' Jean-Pierre said at the briefing as she moved on to the next question.
The pre-school age girl has never met Hunter and the Biden family has refused to count her as part of the family - with only six stockings representing the grandchildren being hung at the White House at Christmastime.
The New York Times reported Friday that aides have been told that Bidens have six grandchildren - not seven - during strategy sessions.
The blonde-haired little girl was conceived around December 2017 while Hunter was still in a relationship with his brother Beau's widow, Hallie.
'I had no recollection of our encounter,' Hunter wrote in his memoir about the matter. 'That's how little connection I had with anyone. I was a mess, but a mess I've taken responsibility for.
Stefanik has been a vocal proponent of protecting the life of the unborn.
'As the newest mom in Congress, I gave birth to my son Sam almost two years ago,' she told DailyMail.com last month.
'I know how important it is to stand up and protect the most precious and vulnerable among us, that is the unborn,' she said at an event marking the one year anniversary of the Supreme Court's Dobbs decision, rolling back landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade.
