Hunter Biden admits his last name was ‘gold’ in Ukraine

More than any member of the Biden family, Hunter Biden has come to symbolize the profligate use of the Biden name for profit in shady deals around the world.

In a new interview, Hunter doesn’t deny the obvious about his extraordinary luck, telling BBC his last name was “gold” in Ukraine.

Hunter admits last name was “gold”

Hunter’s $50,000 a month job at the company Burisma Holdings was heavily attacked during the 2020 election campaign, with critics saying that Hunter, a notorious ne’er-do-well with a drug problem and no relevant experience, must have gotten the job through his father.

Hunter partially admitted that was the case, saying the Biden name “opened doors that wouldn’t be opened up to other people” but said it was a “privilege and a burden.”

At the time, Biden was vice president and America’s leader in Ukrainian diplomacy, and his boasts about getting a prosecutor fired who had investigated Burisma would come back to bite him with further accusations of impropriety.

Concerning Burisma, Hunter said that the company wanted access to the Biden family because of the vice president’s reputation for “democracy and transparency” at a time when Russia was taking over Crimea.

“I think that they saw my name as gold and the reason they did was this: Right at that time, the Russians had invaded and taken Crimea and they were after the natural resources and the pipeline,” he said.

Hunter unapologetic

Both father and son have long denied that there was anything unseemly about Hunter’s deals, a story that became harder to justify when emails publicized from Hunter’s laptop shortly before the 2020 election showed that Joe Biden met with Burisma executives.

While Hunter acknowledges the privileges of being a senator’s son, he remains unapologetic about reaping the rewards.

He acknowledged to BBC that he “missed” the “perception” of impropriety caused by the Burisma connection, but his spin on the episode has a level of chutzpah that only a Biden could pull off.

Echoing his BBC comments, Hunter portrayed his family’s conflicts of interest in Ukraine as some kind of geopolitical masterstroke, calling the Burisma job a “f*** you” to Vladimir Putin.

In a CBS interview, he portrayed himself as the victim of a smear job, saying his only “mistake” in working for Burisma was “underestimating the way it would be used against me.”

  4. I concur with the above “authors” . However , when there is so much CORRUPTION, AIDING and [?]ABETTING [ARE YOU READING THIS OLD NANCY OLD MAXINE OLD JOE}. Hunter will not be held accountable for jaywalking , much less any CRIMES HE DID commit.
    The Democrat Party , once the party for the “little” guy , has gone FULL BLOWN COMMUNIST . Sadly , those who voted for democrats , are OBLIVIOUS to this , or worse , THEY WANT to be enslaved to communism .

  5. Do we all have to lose our freedom by turning the other cheek to their greed and graft? It’s like the Jenga Tower Game – remove one small piece of wood and the whole tower crashes . . . guess that’s what we’ve got. I kinda fear we’re headed for a social revolution . . . the gun caper will most likely bring it to the fore. I pray not . . .

  6. Hunter and Joe were in that Ukraine deal up to there crooked little necks. Both cashed in and were involved in crooked dealings for a long time. They made a lot of money to cover up and make things happen for the communist’s . Why they have been drought up on charges is not surprising because democrat’s don’t get charged , ever , for anything. There going to be the downfall of this country .If there ever was a case of the fox guarding the hen house , It the Biden’s in government.

  7. Folks non of Joe Bidens children were any good, theyhave followed in daddys foot steps. A daughter was on drugs. Both sons were drugies. What destrubs me is the lawless they are getting away with. Starting with Joe on down.

  8. Hunter is a disgusting little creep! He is proud to be such a scum bag! He should have been in prison long ago, if for nothing other than raping his own niece! How sick and depraved can you get? Yet daddy bails him out of every scrape! They both should be in prison! And I question why Jill stays with the goon, must love crazy and depraved!

  9. Jill Biden is just as bad as the rest of the rest of them! Remember she played around with for Joe while she was still married! Have no use for by any of them! EVIL! I love KARMA! They will get there,s!!

  10. Shameful and a jerk….liar and immoral! This is what the press and liberals allowed to happen. So did the President! He allowed his son to do all these immoral and illegal things and yet people voted him into office. Unbelievable.
