Biden Annoyed by Reporters Question About Hunter’s Dealings With Ukraine

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden bristled when he was asked by an NBC reporter about his son Hunter’s work for a Ukrainian energy company that is at the heart of the Senate impeachment trial against President Trump.

The former vice president was asked by Savannah Guthrie during an interview on NBC’s “Today” show about the “irony” surrounding Trump’s allegations against Hunter and the claims being amplified during the impeachment proceedings.

“It’s a good thing that no one’s found anything wrong with his dealing with Ukraine except they say it sets a bad image,” Biden said in the interview broadcast Monday.

Guthrie then asked if it was “wrong” for Hunter to take a seat on the board of Burisma Holdings “because the company wanted access to you.”

“That’s not true. You’re saying things you do not know what you’re talking about,” Biden said. “No one has said that — who said that?”

The NBC anchor said some people would see it as “sleazy” and asked “was it right?”

“Well, he said he regretted having done it. Speak for yourself. He’s a grown man,” Biden said.

Trump and Republicans allege that Biden — then the Obama administration’s point-man in Ukraine — threatened to hold up $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine unless it fired a top prosecutor while Hunter worked for Burisma.

Biden has consistently countered that the prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, was not aggressive enough in fighting corruption and it was a foreign policy decision backed by a number of European countries to have him removed.

    …? Whaaat? NBC? Today?!? asked a question of a Democrat that made him bristle? OMG, watch out for falling Hosts!! I’m surprised they’re not looking for Guthrie’s body right now – or maybe the crooked FBI is just buying time for the liberal media masters to hide it.

    Wonder how the Demorrhoids will blame Trump for all this?

    Will dims ever be held accountable for the cheating and corruption . Its time rep stop moving on and bring to justice the assault on our country and our Constitution . From obama all the way down to the door greeter of that crooked administration should be brought up on charges . I feel they never will . Somehow our laws are not applicable to dims or illegal aliens . The only thing that gives me solace is that they will answer for their deeds when they face Our Lord and Saviour .

    If The Dems think it was such a high crime for Trump yo suggest that an investigation be done into Berista over the Biden corruption issues, then they should never allow Biden to run on their ticket. He committed the high crime, didn’t just suggest looking into the issue. I cannot believe that Biden would even want to run!

    If the same question is asked of him a few more times with a couple of days between the time he is asked he will forget what he already said and will accidentally tell the truth.

    Nancy Pelosi should be removed from office without delay. Ripping up President’s Trump’s SOTU on National TV was an outrageous act and clearly indicates that she is NOT fit as Speaker of the House. There were children in the audience! There was a highly decorated 103-y/o Tuskegee Airman with his grandson in the audience. There were children at home watching President Trump’s eloquent historical speech. For Ms. Pelosi to commit such an outrageous ‘mean girl/teenage act’ on national TV left a legacy that should forever haunt her. Hers was truly an ABUSE OF POWER (!) viewed by millions watching national TV and she should be fired and ejected from office at once. Really. SHAME ON HER.

    I’ve been saying for a long time now this is the key to the entire impeachment sham. It’s the smoke screen the democrats used to deflect an investigation into Biden’s son, Biden and the Obama administration’s actions prior to Trump’s election. If the senate follows through and opens a full investigation I’d bet a slew of unethical greedy deeds will be exposed. It’ll be exactly what the democrats deserve after a couple of years doing nothing but wasting time and tax dollars.

    Yeah, and I’m selling bridges in Brooklyn. To attack a reporter asking a legitimate question shows how incapable he is of leading the country. If he doesn’t see it looks corrupt from all vantage points then there is no helping him.

    Amazing! Biden woke up to actually try to intimidate the press. That is going to give him ersatz brass balls and lose real and phantom voters, indirectly but unavoidably.
