Hunter Biden Tells ABC News of His ‘Poor Judgment’ Related to Ukraine Job

Hunter Biden, a son of the former vice president, should have stayed in hiding, in my opinion.

But he couldn’t, could he?

President Donald Trump dragged him out of the Ukraine “closet,” so to speak, kicking and screaming.

So Hunter Biden agreed to do an interview with ABC News in which he could “set the record straight.”

However, instead of doing that, Hunter Biden pounded the last nail into his dad’s campaign coffin, as I see it.

Should President Donald Trump be impeached?

He essentially admitted that the only reason he got the job in Ukraine was because his dad was vice president.

Oops.

“In retrospect, look, I think that it was poor judgment on my part,” Biden told ABC News interviewer Amy Robach, as Breitbart News noted in its piece about it.

“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. However, was it poor judgment to be in the middle of something that is a swamp in — in — in many ways? Yeah.”

“So I take full responsibility for that,” the younger Biden continued.

“Did I do anything improper? No, not in any way. Not in any way whatsoever. Did I make a mistake based upon some ethical lapse? Absolutely not.”

Later in the interview, Biden conceded he would “probably not” have served as a board member of Ukrainian energy giant Burisma Holdings if he were not the son of a vice president.

“I gave a hook to some very unethical people to act in illegal ways to try to do some harm to my father,” he said.

“That’s where I made the mistake,” he also noted, as Breitbart reported about the interview.

Trump himself chimed in on Hunter’s disastrous interview as well.

But the favorite part of the Hunter Biden interview, to me, was when he tried so hard to squeeze out tears and “cry” during his so-called “emotional moment.”

Yet he just couldn’t pull it off.
