Joe Biden is on the defensive over his son’s work in Ukraine.
He recently got rattled when a reporter asked him about it. In fact, he snapped.
Biden is clearly not used to taking tough questions from reporters. He probably thought he was going to be treated the way Obama was back in 2008. How wrong he was.
Whoa: Biden Completely Snaps At a Reporter…For Asking About Ukraine
Former Vice President Joe Biden snapped at a reporter on Friday during the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Unions for All Summit in Los Angeles. The reporter asked Biden about his son, Hunter, sitting on the board of a Ukrainian gas company and being paid $50,000 a month despite having zero experience in natural energy.
At the time, Joe Biden was handling affairs with the Ukrainian government. The reporter wanted to know how those facts didn’t create a conflict of interest.
“How was your role as vice president in charge of policy in Ukraine and your son’s job in Ukraine, how is that not a conflict of interest?” the reporter asked.
Apparently Biden sees nothing wrong with the scenario. And he refuses to answer any questions about the Ukraine scandal.
“It’s not a conflict of interest. There’s been no indication of any conflict of interest from Ukraine or anywhere else. Period. I’m not going to respond to that!” Biden replied.
See the video below:

Did you notice how Biden tried to spin that question into a Trump issue?
How predictable and pathetic.
Biden in this clip says it is not a conflict of interest that he was point person on Ukraine policy while his son was sitting on a Ukrainian energy company board.
When pressed on the appearance of it, he tells the reporter to instead "focus on this man" AKA Trump https://t.co/UauJo4E7P0

Biden has been badly damaged by this Ukraine connection and the questions it raises.
The worst part for him is that it’s not going away any time soon.
