Joe Biden crumbles when confronted about his son Hunter’s crimes on CNN

President Joe Biden had no good answers when it came to his son Hunter’s alleged criminal activities.

Biden’s responses appear to fall far short during a Tuesday CNN interview with Jake Tapper.

Biden’s words

“Well, first of all, I’m proud of my son. This is a kid, who got — not a kid, he’s a grown man. And he got hooked on, like many families have had happened, hooked on drugs,” Biden said.

“He’s overcome that. He’s established a new life. He is, I’m confident that he is — what he says, and does, are consistent with what happens. And, for example, he wrote a book about his problems and was straightforward about it. I’m proud of him,” he added.

The thing about the gun?

“He came along and said — by the way, this thing about a gun? I didn’t know anything about it. But turns out that when he made application, to purchase a gun, what happened was he said — I guess, you get asked — I don’t guess,” Biden continued.

“You get asked the question, ‘Are you on drugs? You use drugs?’ He said, ‘No.’ And he wrote about saying ‘No,’ in his book,” he added.

Despite an appearance on left-leaning CNN, Biden struggled with answers and even appeared to drop his notecard at one point during the interview.

The interview was likely expected to downplay concerns about Hunter Biden and encourage Democrats ahead of the midterms. Instead, it is leading to more fallout and cleanup from the White House.

The latest interview is one of many that may contribute to some major changes as conservatives seek wins at the ballot box in November.
