During MSNBC’s coverage of the Iowa caucus on Monday, former second lady Jill Biden said that President Donald Trump’s remarks about her stepson Hunter Biden were “disgraceful.”
MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace said to Mrs. Biden, “You’ve been in the center of the beginnings of the primaries, but also of the national story in Washington, the impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump. How have those two things collided for your family on the campaign trail?”

Biden replied, “Well, you know, it’s been a little difficult. I’m a mother. I know you’re a mother. It’s hard when you see your kids attacked. But I think that voters realized this is about Donald Trump. It’s not about my son Hunter or my husband, and I think it’s disgraceful what Donald Trump has done. And we know this is all a distraction.”
She also said that Trump’s comments could be a rallying cry for supporters of her husband.
It’s All About Beating Trump
“The bottom line I think for most Iowans is they want to beat Donald Trump. That’s the bottom line,” she added. “And so if Donald Trump is doing this because he is afraid of my husband, then that turns out to be a good thing for Joe because they’re getting behind him, and they’re supporting him.”

Give Us a Break, Jill
Jill Biden seriously wants us to believe that her 50-year-old stepson, Hunter Biden, is somehow beyond reproach? Despite the fact that he earned a significant amount of money through the Ukraine Burisma energy firm without knowing anything about that business? And how this kind of seeming nepotism might look in the midst of a ridiculous impeachment witch hunt against President Trump that centers on U.S. dealings with Ukraine?
Give us a break.
What’s “disgraceful” is Democrats continuing to hound this President over nothing while still insisting Joe and Hunter Biden’s Ukraine activity doesn’t deserve to be scrutinized.
You can’t blame Jill Biden for standing up for family. But that doesn’t mean certain members of her family aren’t covered in sleazy political grime.
