Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, is currently engulfed in a slew of troubling scandals.
During an interview Thursday on ABC's "The View," Joe Biden claimed his son had “done nothing but good things his whole life.”
Co-host Joy Behar said, “People wanted to see you really get mad when people started lying about Hunter and saying things about Hunter. I don’t know that you got mad enough.”
Biden said, “Well, you know I would like to be able to be back in high school and just have he and I in a room.”
Behar said, “Of course, I know.”
Biden continued, “But all kidding aside, here’s the deal. Look, it is hurtful, particularly when guys like Lindsey Graham, who’s a friend of mine, do these things.”
Behar asked, “He’s still a friend?”
Biden said, “Look, presidents can’t —I plan on being president. Presidents can’t hold grudges. You got to heal. You got to heal the country, and I just don’t want to let myself get into the mood of —like, for example, people say, why don’t I attack his kids, they’re making millions?”
Behar said, “No, no.”
Jill Biden said, “You got to be above it.”
Biden continued, “That’s not how we were raised. And look, nobody has said he’s done anything wrong. This is a guy who has done nothing but good things his whole life, my son. He ran a food program WFP USA, a whole range of things. But look, it’s what it is. We knew it was going to be ugly.”
In recent months, Hunter Biden has been accused of breaking the law and cheating on his wife.
The IRS recently placed a tax lien on Hunter Biden for $112,805 in unpaid taxes from 2015.
Hunter has also been accused of a $156 million money laundering scheme.
The son of the former vice president also fathered a baby with a former stripper while he was dating the woman who was previously married to his own brother before he passed away from cancer.
Despite this, Joe Biden says his son has never done anything wrong.
