Joe Biden snapped Friday evening at a TV reporter who became the first
to directly ask about reported emails suggesting his son Hunter cashed
in overseas on the former vice president's name.
The exchange occurred outside Biden's private jet after a campaign
event in Michigan when the Democratic nominee stopped for questions by
reporters. CBS News reporter Bo Erickson asked about a New York Post
article two days earlier about the purported emails.
"Mr. Biden, what is your response to the New York Post story about your
son, sir?" Erickson asked.
"I know youd ask it," the former vice president retorted. "I have no
response, its another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are
the questions you always ask."
It was the first time Biden had been asked about the article since it
broke. ABC host George Stephanopoulos failed to ask about it Thursday
night during a town hall with Biden.
Erickson posted the brief encounter on Twitter, where the reporter
suggested Biden "went after me" for asking the question.
I asked Joe Biden: What is your response to the NYPost story
about your son, sir?He called it a smear campaign and then
went after me. I know youd ask it. I have no response, its
another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the
questions you always ask. pic.twitter.com/Eo6VD4TqxD

Democrats and the liberal media hate President Trump more than they
love this country.
