When Joe Biden claims “nobody has said he’s done anything wrong” about his son Hunter Biden, he is apparently disregarding the opinion of the majority of voters.
Politico reports a majority of voters believe it was inappropriate for Joe Biden’s son to work for a Ukrainian gas company while his father led U.S. foreign policy initiatives in the country, according to a POLITICO/Morning Consult poll.
The Biden-Ukraine affair ultimately led to President Donald Trump’s impeachment for pressuring Ukraine to investigate the Bidens. Voters were split 47-47 percent on whether it was appropriate for the Senate last week to acquit Trump, the poll shows.
In contrast, 52 percent of voters believe it was inappropriate for Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, to take the job with the firm Burisma, while 18 percent said it was appropriate. Fifty-seven percent said it was a scandal while 19 percent said it wasn’t.
Still, a plurality of 40 percent said the Biden-Ukraine affair wouldn’t make any difference in their vote, while 31 percent said it made them less likely to support him and 8 percent said more likely.
Per TCO, appearing on the view, fledgling 2020 candidate Joe Biden made what some may consider an “outrageous” claim that his son Hunter Biden has “done nothing but good things.”
The former Vice President also made the obviously false statement that “nobody has said he’s done anything wrong.”
Hunter recently was involved in a contentious paternity lawsuit and was found to have parented a child with ex-DC stripper Lunden Roberts after initially denying being the father. Hunter also briefly dated his dead brother’s widow and is under suspicion of having the affair resulting in the child before they had officially broken up.
Look, it is hurtful, particularly when guys like Lindsay Graham whose a friend of mine do these things.
He’s still a friend?
Well, President’s can’t…..I plan on being President. President’s can’t hold grudges, you gotta heal. We’ve got to heal the country and I just don’t want to let myself get into the mood of..well for example people say like why don’t I attack his kids, they’re making millions…that’s just not how we were raised and look nobody has said he’s done anything wrong. This is a guy who has done nothing but good things his whole life, my son.
