Appearing with Stephen Colbert, Joe Biden called Republicans using Hunter Biden’s business dealings to go after him personally “foul play.”
Colbert asked Biden “the people who want to make hay in Washington are going to try to use your son as as a cudgel against you. How do you feel about that and what do you have to say to those people?”
Biden replied “I have, we have, great confidence in our son.” He continued “I am not concerned about any accusations being made against him. It’s used to get to me. I think it’s kind of foul play but look, it is what it is and he’s a grown man, he is the smartest man I know. I mean, from a pure intellectual capacity – and as long as he’s good, we’re good.”
