From Margaret Talev’s article at axios.com:
Former Vice President Joe Biden, in an interview with “Axios on HBO,” promised to prohibit his son Hunter, and other family members, from cashing in on his name and position overseas if he wins the presidency.
I’m not sure what the most “are you kidding?” part is. But I think I’m settling on “Asked whether he wants to get to the bottom of it, Biden said, “No. Because I trust my son.”
Joe Biden may trust Hunter Biden. I suppose that’s what fathers are for.
But to many of the rest of us, he’s an unreliable, dope-smoking Navy washout who dumped his wife and took up with his widowed daughter in law, fathered at least one out-of-wedlock child with a stripper from a club he apparently frequented, and seems to have gotten rich on little more than exploiting his father’s political clout…
…and whose dealings with Ukraine’s Burisma Energy are zealously being protected by daddy Joe, the Democrat Party, and our disgracefully acquiescent media.
But that’s OK, Joe. The world is in order. Your party, which controls the House of Representatives, is about to impeach a president for little more than asking – not threatening, but asking – for an investigation of Ukraine efforts to influence the 2016 election (which seems evident, even though our media continue to work hard at keeping the public ignorant of them) and your kid’s involvement in Burisma.
Let’s see if that world order holds if the impeachment vote passes (no guarantee on that) and it goes to the senate, where Republicans can finally present the other side of the story.
