Video: Biden Throws His son Hunter Under The Bus
It’s amazing how a drop in the polls and some bad press really starts to change the way you remember things. On Friday Joe Biden started separating himself from his son Hunter Biden.
During an interview with the PBS News Hour which Biden claimed that he will not have any of his children “involved” with foreign countries if he wins the White House. Biden was asked what he knew about his sons roll in Ukraine and said this:
“I didn’t know he was on the board of that company. And, in fact, no one has asserted on the board that it illegal for him to be on the board or he did anything wrong.”
The former vice president’s claim to not know what his son was up to contradicts a lot of reports. Even Hunter Biden admitted in June that he had discussed his foreign business interest with his dad Joe Biden.
“Dad said, ‘I hope you know what you are doing,’ and I said, ‘I do’” Hunter Biden told The New Yorker Magazine. Breitbart News Reports:
As Peter Schweizer, a senior contributor at Breitbart News, detailed in his book, Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends, Hunter Biden had no prior experience with either the energy industry or Ukraine before joining Burisma in April 2014. In fact, his background in investment banking, lobbying, and hedge fund management paled in comparison to that of current and past members of the company’s board of directors.
Biden may be claiming his son hasn’t done anything wrong but this is the first time that Joe has started to separate himself from his son’s activity denying he had any knowledge of his son’s position in Ukraine. Also, now that questions are starting to arise over some of the decisions he made with Obama in Iraq it’s pretty obvious, somebody is getting nervous.
You can watch “sleepy Joe Biden” here trying to spin the best he can to spin that he has not done anything wrong.
