Joe Biden can try to run from his son’s corruption, but he can’t hide — at least not if Sean Hannity has something to say about it.
The Fox News host sent a news crew to Biden’s home on Tuesday night to demand answers, the Washington Examiner reported, as the Democrat presidential candidate appears to seek refuge from the growing scandal.
“What did you know?”
Biden has been holed up at home this week, ostensibly preparing for the last presidential debate on Thursday night, but many have found the timing suspect in light of damning evidence that he was involved in his son’s business dealings.
At the 9 p.m. hour of his show Tuesday, Hannity called on Biden to clear up the matter as he displayed video of Biden’s residence from a news crew outside.
“Joe Biden, you have a lot of questions to answer, and it’s time for you to answer them,” Hannity said, according to Fox News. “What did you know? When did you know it? Did you take a cut of your son’s seedy international pay-for-play schemes?”
The Fox host challenged the candidate to “walk outside of your house, leave your basement bunker, step out and answer these pressing questions.”
“I know it’s 9 p.m. Eastern, Joe, but if you are awake, we have a camera right outside of your house right now,” Hannity said, as the Washington Examiner reported. “We will be more than happy to hear you out.”
“The camera’s right there”
Recent emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop that were published by the New York Post show that then-vice presidential Joe Biden met with a Ukrainian executive who worked with his son at the company Burisma Holdings.
The former vice president has said that it’s all a “smear campaign,” and those in the media have been letting it slide. Well, most of them.
Hannity persisted Wednesday night, as Biden continued to retreat from public scrutiny.
“Joe, the camera’s right there if you have anything you want to tell America,” Hannity said, according to Fox.
“You’ve been very quiet for the last five days in the middle of an election,” the Fox star added. “If you want to make a pitch to voters, if you’re able to answer a couple of questions, not about what your favorite milkshake is, just come outside. We’d be happy to hear from you. Free any time.”
