Joe Biden Rants About ‘Smear Campaign’ and Insults CBS Reporter Who Asks About NY Post Story

Twitter and Facebook have both moved to suppress New York Post reports that the former vice president lied about never talking to his son Hunter about his business dealings in Ukraine, where Biden had the prosecutor general fired.

US Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has lashed out at a journalist for asking his thoughts on allegations against his son.

CBS reporter Bo Erickson, attached to the Biden election campaign, asked the former vice president on Thursday night for his response to the New York Post story alleging his son Hunter peddled his father’s influence to Ukrainian and Chinese businessmen for money and helped orchestrate the 2016 sacking of Ukrainian prosecutor general Viktor Shokin.

«I know you’d ask it,» Biden shot back angrily. «I have no response, it’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.»
