The hunt for Hunter Biden is over, as the son of the former VP has been speaking, and says he expressed “poor judgement” in “A swamp.”
As President Donald Trump continues to fill his Twitter feed and campaign speeches with attacks on Hunter Biden over his messy foreign business deals. The younger Biden has defended the ethical implications of his private ventures in an interview with ABC News, but conceded taking a misstep in failing to foresee the political implications on his father’s career. “In retrospect, look, I think that it was poor judgment on my part. Is that I think that it was poor judgment because I don’t believe now when I look back on it — I know that there was — did nothing wrong at all,” Hunter Biden told ABC News in an exclusive interview. “However, was it poor judgment to be in the middle of something that is…a swamp in — in — in many ways? Yeah.”
“I gave a hook to some very unethical people to act in illegal ways to try to do some harm to my father. That’s where I made the mistake,” said Biden. “So I take full responsibility for that. Did I do anything improper? No, not in any way. Not in any way whatsoever.”
Now that he is out there, Hunter also used the interview to take a jab at President Trump and his own son, Don Jr. During the ABC interview, where nothing was off-limits, shortly after praising his father’s civility and tendency to steer clear of other people’s kids, Hunter Biden insulted President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., by comparing him to Prince Humperdinck, an unsavory character in the movie “The Princess Bride.”
“I’ve been through some stuff in my life,” Biden said during an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” I’ve been through some real, real stuff. This isn’t the real stuff. It isn’t. It truly isn’t. That part of it, that Barnum and Bailey, you know, say anything, do anything you want, you know, I mean like, you know, Donald ‘Prince Humperdinck’ Trump Jr. is not somebody that I really care about.”
Hunter Biden also said he doesn’t feel like he is a distraction to his father’s White House aspirations, and took a veiled shot at the Trump family, saying their personal dynamic is not that of a family business.
“No, personally myself I’m not necessarily a distraction to his campaign,” he said. “I’m never a distraction to my dad. But as it relates to actually going and being on stage with him, this is not a family business. Unlike [the Trumps] I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about them. I really don’t,” Biden added. “It’s all noise and what they do is they create just an enormous amount of noise. I have to then answer questions about accusations made by probably the most unethical group of people that we’ve ever seen in this republic.”
