(Breitbart) – Monday on MSNBC’s coverage of the Iowa caucus, former second lady Jill Biden called President Donald Trump’s comments about her stepson Hunter Biden were “disgraceful.”
Host Nicolle Wallace said, “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 said, “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 added Trump’s remarks could be a rallying cry for supporters.
“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.”
Jill Biden: ‘Hunter Has Done Nothing Wrong,’ Trump Should Testify
Appearing Monday on CNN’s New Day, former second lady Jill Biden proclaimed that her stepson, Hunter Biden, is innocent of allegations of corruption against him and said President Donald Trump should be a witness in the Senate impeachment trial.
A partial transcript is as follows:
JOHN BERMAN: Lindsey Graham, the senator from South Carolina, whom I think you count as a friend–
JILL BIDEN: We did, yes.
BERMAN: You did?
BIDEN: Well, I don’t know what happened to Lindsey. We used to be great friends and friends with John McCain. We traveled together with the [Senate] Foreign Relations Committee, we’ve had dinner. Now he’s changed.
BERMAN: Do you consider him a friend anymore?
BIDEN: It’s hard when you — I don’t know — consider them a friend and they’ve said so many things, so many negative things, and that’s been a little hurtful.
BERMAN: I didn’t even get my first question out about him. He has now suggested that Hunter should be called before a Senate committee to testify.
BIDEN: Hunter has done nothing wrong. Why would Hunter be called? Donald Trump should be before that committee.
“We used to be great friends… And now he’s changed,” says Jill Biden, wife of Joe Biden, about Sen. Lindsey Graham’s stance on the impeachment trial. “It’s hard when you consider somebody a friend and they’ve said so many negative things. That’s been a little hurtful.” pic.twitter.com/tjR1JsFrDJ
