Hunter Biden remains largely defiant today, contending he did nothing wrong by serving on the board of a Ukrainian gas company while his father served as the Obama administration’s point-man on Ukraine.
But the 49-year-old ne’er-do-well acknowledged he likely would have never got the $50,000 a month job if his father weren’t vice president.
The Daily Wire’s Joseph Curl has more:
In his first public statements since the scandal exploded in Washington, Biden told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that it was “poor judgment” on his part to hold the job, which reportedly paid him $50,000 a month. Biden made hundreds of thousands of dollars through his employment with Burisma, the largest private gas company in Ukraine — despite having no real qualifications for the job.
“If your last name wasn’t Biden, do you think you would have been asked to be on the board or Burisma?” ABC News’ Amy Robach asked.
“I don’t know, I don’t know, probably not,” Biden said. “It is impossible for me to be on any of the boards that I just mentioned without saying that I’m the son of the vice president of the United States.”
He went further, saying, “I don’t think that there’s a lot of things that would have happened in my life if my last name wasn’t Biden.”
Before working for Burisma, the Navy discharged Biden’s son after he tested positive for cocaine.
