Former Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday that his son Hunter Biden is “the smartest guy I know.”
The 2020 Democratic presidential nominee discussed his son Wednesday at a Oprah Winfrey’s virtual voter mobilization event as he described how former President Barack Obama convinced him to run alongside him in 2008, according to the New York Post.
“I told him I didn’t want to do it,” Biden said. “This is public knowledge now. I thought I could help him more as a U.S. senator.”
Obama reportedly told Biden to go home and think about the decision after discussing with his family, Biden said.
The former vice president said he discussed the decision with his wife, his mother, and his late son Beau Biden. He also mentioned Hunter Biden, saying, “and I had my son Hunter, who’s the smartest guy I know.”
Biden said his mother told him: “Joey, first man in history who’s able to be elected president as an African American. He says that he needs you to win Pennsylvania and other states and you told him No?’”
“I said, ‘Oh mom, what are you doing to me?’ I said yes I will, and so I picked up the phone and called Barack, because my mom, like you, wasn’t about to take no for an answer,” Biden said, according to the Post. “It was about an obligation, about what you are supposed to do.”
Biden’s comments come after Hunter Biden’s former business partner Tony Bobulinski told Tucker Carlson Tuesday that “Joe Biden and the Biden family are compromised” — though Biden has insisted he “never” spoke to his son about his business dealings overseas, particularly his business dealings in China.
“I just don’t see, given the history here in the facts, how Joe can’t be influenced in some manner based on the history that they have,” Bobulinski said. “So as a citizen and an American taxpayer, I’m very, very concerned.”
“They were putting their entire family legacy on the line,” he told Carlson. “They knew exactly what they were doing. They were dealing with a Chinese owned enterprise … that had strong financial support and political support from the Chinese Communist Party. That’s how it was presented to me. That’s not my own words. That’s how they presented it to me and read me in on it.”

I would call him nothing but a “CON-ARTIST”, that belongs in the same cell with bernie madoff. Those two could talk about how they screwed people out of their money. Actually the whole biden family criminal enterprise as well as the clinton crime cartel, and fraud obama ALL need to be arrested, and thrown a a cell. dementia-Joe needs to be hanged for TREASON, along with crooked hitlery, FRAUD obama, kerry, and many-many other democommunist/rino traitors that used their “offices” to sell out this country and made themselves filthy rich.
If that Drug addict jackass is the smartest guy he knows than Biden must keep some shitty company.Biden himself is in the beginning stages of Dementia so I would not trust his judgement about anything because my dog seems more intelligent than Joe Biden at this time. It is his being the ventriloquist dummy for whoever is pulling Biden strings it would be funny if it were not so sad. The way Biden is being used reminds me of years back when they were using Gabby Giffords and she was making little sense. because of her Injuries but the Democrats have no shame and will try to use anything to get ahead
SO BOGUS !!!!!
After all I read and herd about the Biden, I am totally convince that this family have sold our. Country to China for a couple of billion dollars.
Biden has done this because Bill and Hillary sold our nation to China and nothing happen to the Clintons, right?
So hr decided to do the same. He even copy Hillary foundation to be more precisely.
These family needs to go to Jail.
If Hunter is the smartest guy you know then you’re hanging with the wrong crowd Joey. You should never have admitted thisJoe.
The Biden’s are definitely corrupt!
Spoken by a senile old fool who has no relevant means of comparison as he barely qualifies as as a moron.
Joey, you were the lowest in your class and you are a dummy. I don’t know what Obama was thinking other than he needed a corrupt partner when he picked you. Joe look in the mirror, your face is as crooked as the rest of you.
You were finished for us to go out before you started.
