Juan Williams Left Sputtering After Head to Head with Newt Gingrich on the Biden’s – Watch
Fox News contributor Juan Williams attempted to defend Joe and Hunter Biden this week on “Fox News Sunday,” but he ended up running head first into the unmovable logic of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
Williams started our his defense of the Biden’s like this:
“We know Hunter Biden’s an addict — we know he’s an alcoholic. We know he’s had sex addiction problems. We know he’s not the son you would have. But Joe Biden acted as a father trying to protect his son and try to help his son. I don’t think anyone’s gonna fault him for that.”
But it didn’t take long for Williams to move the conversation to the Trump family:
“But you compare that to the graft and the grifting from Trump golf courses, Trump hotels, Chinese shoe deals with the daughter, [and] the son-in-law getting billions from the Saudis. It’s unbelievable.
Even this week you have to compare it to the trouble we’ve heard about in New York with the sexual assault case against Trump.
But this is what Hunter Biden has come down to now. He is a distraction, a shield against all the trouble that Trump is experiencing.”
Gingrich didn’t stay silent for long, he launched into the issues that were legal issues with Hunter and Joe:
“They may be legal. There are facts. The widow of the Moscow mayor sent millions of dollars to Hunter Biden. He got money from Kazakhstan.
He got money from Ukraine and served on a board about which he knew nothing. He got a lot of money from China and it’s a fact, Juan, that there were $3 million that has been disclosed that went to the Biden family from a Chinese billionaire. That is a fact.
Now you can decide that none of this stuff matters, but the fact is you have the Vice President of the United States taking his son on Air Force Two into China where his son is making business deals. And you just described his son. Your language, he’s a sex addict, he’s an alcoholic.”
After both Newt and the host addressing the hypocrisy coming from Williams, he had this to say:
“I don’t know about—look, I think you have a son, Joe Biden’s son, Hunter who might make some business deals. Newt describes this as millions flowing to the family. Kind of a Morpheus. But I know specifically of two billion dollars that went to Jared Kushner and nobody’s gonna argue about that.”
And Gingrich closed the conversation with the final word:
“My only point is if you listen to his description of Hunter, why would anyone invest in Hunter? They were investing in Joe!”
