Joe Biden faces criticism after snapping at reporter over Ukraine question

This certainly doesn’t look too ‘presidential’.

As the Democratically-led “formal impeachment inquiry” into Donald Trump continues to grow, so too does the collateral damage that comes along with it.

When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that she would be escalating the rhetoric surrounding the impeachment of President Trump to the aforementioned love, the Democrats were practically celebrating.  It took them months to get Nancy’s needle to move even a fraction of an inch on the subject.  Now, as far as they believed, they would have the upper hand.

What the left didn’t realize in this whole debacle was just how much attention it would bring to the business dealings of Joe Biden and his son Hunter in Ukraine.

The former Vice President certainly wasn’t prepared for it, as evidenced by his combative attitude when that subject is broached to him this week.

Former Vice President Joe Biden snapped at a reporter Friday after being asked whether his son Hunter Biden’s work in Ukraine — while the elder Biden was diplomatically involved with the country as vice president — represented a conflict of interest.

“It’s not a conflict of interest. There’s been no indication of any conflict of interest,” Biden said while at a Service Employees International Union forum in Los Angeles.

Biden was quick to attempt to change the subject.

The reporter then asked if Biden’s son’s work created the appearance of a conflict of interest — prompting Biden to attempt to shift the focus to President Trump.

“I’m not going to respond to that,” Biden said. “Focus on this man. What he’s doing that no president has ever done. No president.”

And, of course, there’s video of the incident as well.

Joe Biden is currently holding onto a narrow lead in the race for the 2020 nomination, with Senators Bernie Sanders and Liz Warren nipping at his heels.
