Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden on Friday blamed his staff for not warning him about the potential conflict of interest stemming from his son Hunter’s position on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company.
“Nobody warned me about a potential conflict of interest,” Biden said in an interview with NPR released Monday.
“I never, never heard that once at all,” he added. “They should have told me.”
Biden also stressed to NPR host Rachel Martin that he would not comply with a subpoena to testify before Congress’s ongoing impeachment inquiry. He argued that there is not “one scintilla of evidence” he did anything corrupt while working on the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy.
During her interview with Biden, Martin mentioned that impeachment witness George Kent testified that he had raised concerns with then-vice president Biden’s office about Hunter’s position on the board of the Ukrainian firm Burisma. Kent said his concerns were ignored.
Kent is not the only person thought to have told Biden about the potential conflict.
So, Biden, who wants to be President, is too stupid to know that his son working for a corrupt company in a corrupt foreign country might prove problematic for a Vice President? In addition to showing his temperament is not what we would want as President, he can’t see a problem unless his staff points it out to him.
Or, maybe they told him, but kids were sitting in his lap and rubbing his legs and he forgot.
That’s your front-runner, Democrats. You have our sympathy.
Even if there were no Hunter Biden at all, just Joe, his campaign would be failing as it is.
Look at him for a while.
Listen to him for a while.
He might have been a connected pol who knew how to pull strings and get things done once (no record or such) but he’s not that now.
He can’t even string a paragraph together without stuttering, stammering, getting parts way wrong and worse.
He can’t debate.
All he does when he’s disagreed with is QUIT (I’m out of time? OK) or threaten (let’s do push-ups, fight behind the gym, shoot off the porch).
He has no sense of “personal space,” despite making a public statement that he’d quit with the uninvited touching, petting even biting.
There are several instances SINCE his statement that he has no reins on his own behavior.
He’s doing a Hillary by blaming staff for his own failure.
