Delaware computer store owner recalls moment Hunter Biden drunkenly staggered into his shop

A Delaware computer store owner has recalled the moment when Hunter Biden drunkenly stumbled into his shop seeking repair of his now-notorious broken MacBooks.

John Paul Mac Isaac, owner of The Mac Shop, said the president’s son appeared reeking of alcohol at his now-shuttered Wilmington store just before closing on a Friday in April 2019.

Biden wanted Isaac to recover data off of three MacBook laptops that had suffered liquid damage, the computer store owner recalled in his upcoming book American Injustice: My Battle to Expose the Truth. He previewed the book in an op-ed published by The New York Post on Friday.

DailyMail.com a copy of the hard drive from Biden’s abandoned laptop in the spring of 2021, and suffered the same censorship as the New York Post did at the hands of woke social media giants for revealing its contents. 

During the repair, Isaac claims he saw evidence of Biden’s sexual tendencies – from his vulgar computer password to lewd pictures – and potential tax fraud.  

‘My password is f**ked up. Don’t be offended!’ Biden allegedly told Isaac before announcing his account was protected with the phrase: ‘analf**k69’.

He also allegedly found photos of Biden sporting a jock strap, sexual images with various women and a ‘shady’ document from 2017 titled ‘income.pdf’ that detailed his salary.

‘At the top were the years 2013, 2014, and 2015. Next to each year was the amount of taxable income earned: $833,000+ in 2013, $847,000+ amended to $1,247,000+ in 2014, $2,478,000+ in 2015,’ Isaac penned in his book. ‘I was blown away. All that money and this a**hole couldn’t spring for a backup drive!’

Biden came stumbling into the shop ten minutes before closing, Isaac recalled, noting he had ‘no intention of working late’ that day.

‘I leaned back in my chair and closed my eyes. My vision of leaving the shop quickly faded as the door chime sounded. As was usual for this time of day, I thought: ‘What kind of person expects quality service right before closing time?” he wrote.

The attorney turned artist stumbled into the shop carrying three laptops. Isaac said he fumbled as he tried to sit at the repair bar counter. 

‘I’m glad you’re still open,’ Biden allegedly said. ‘I just came from the cigar bar, and they told me about your shop, but I had to hurry because you close at seven.’

Isaac, seemingly frustrated by another customer who ‘thinks the world revolves around them,’ responded: ‘You made it just in time.’
