CNN’s Paul Begala: ‘Indescribably Stupid’ for Don Jr. to Opine on Hunter Biden, ‘Bless His Little Heart’


CNN contributor and former Clinton White House counselor Paul Begala mocked Donald Trump Jr. for him weighing in on Hunter Biden benefitting in business because of his last name.

Joe Biden‘s son sat down with ABC News’ Amy Robach, who confronted him over his position on Burisma’s board and whether he would have been put in that position if his last name wasn’t Biden.

Jake Tapper said this afternoon, “President Trump’s attacks against Hunter Biden and Joe have been full of lies. That’s just a fact. But it also is just a fact that this kind of board appointment to the son of a sitting vice president is something that a lot of good government groups take issue with.”

He added that it clearly looks “swampy” and wondered if any other Democrat will bring this up in the debate?

Former Clinton campaign spokeswoman Karen Finney said, “I don’t think so.”

She said it’s better that Democrats draw contrasts between how they would conduct themselves in office versus the incumbent.

Finney also brought up Trump’s kids. Trump Jr. in particular swiped at Hunter Biden over benefitting because of his last name:

Begala remarked, “God bless Donald Trump Jr. Just bless his little heart. It’s indescribably stupid for him to inject himself into this story when he has business deals all around, when he has traveled and promoted his company and his father’s company.”
