Donald Trump Jr doubled down on criticism of the Biden family for nepotism after Hunter Biden called him a Princess Bride villain earlier this week.
Trump Jr appeared on the Hannity show, where he continued his takedown of Joe Biden’s son for benefiting from the legacy name in his role on a board of a Ukrainian company.
Trump Jr, who worked for his father’s company after graduating from university, said: “Right out of school, he [Biden] gets a high paying job from MBNA - the biggest bank and the largest employer in the state of Delaware - where [his father] is conveniently a senator.”
Hey junior: This is not a good look.
The 41-year-old went full steam ahead and criticised Biden’s position on the board of Burisma Holdings - a Ukrainian natural gas company, and a Chinese private equity firm.
“When you’re the father and your son’s entire career is dependent on that, they own you.”
Speaking of Biden’s comments about his family, he went on:
They want to question my family.
If Donald Trump Jr took one point five dollars from China - not $1.5billion, Sean - just $1.5, we’d solve the fake news media problem because their head would explode and there would be none of them left.
It would be over if I did that for a ‘no show’ job for $83,000 a month in Ukraine.
He defended the nepotism comparison by claiming his family made its money in business before the elections.
Needless to say, his most recent comments have been received with a healthy dose of cynicism.
@RealSaavedra Yea...the 4th grade “but Timmy did it too” defense seems pretty standard for this family.
But Timmy… https://t.co/QNyw9XVJFy
