Hunter Biden sits down for ABC interview amid Trump's attacks on his business dealings - CNNPolitics

Washington (CNN)Former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, will speak about President Donald Trump’s recent attacks on his foreign business dealings in a television interview set to air on Tuesday, the same day of the CNN/New York Times Democratic presidential debate.

“Hunter always understood that his father would be guided, entirely and unequivocally, by established U.S. policy, regardless of its effects on Hunter’s professional interests,” according to a statement released by his attorney. “He never anticipated the barrage of false charges against both him and his father by the President of the United States.”
Biden spoke with ABC News over the weekend. The Biden campaign was informed of Hunter Biden’s Sunday statement and new TV interview, but the decisions about when and how to speak have been Hunter Biden’s, not the campaign’s, CNN’s Jake Tapper reported.
    Hunter Biden has been under fire from Trump for an unproven accusation that his father as vice president improperly tried to help him by pressuring the Ukrainian government to fire the country’s prosecutor general. Hunter Biden served on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company at the time.
      The Obama administration, American allies, the International Monetary Fund and Ukrainian anti-corruption activists, among others, had all made clear that they were displeased with the performance of Viktor Shokin, who became prosecutor general in 2015. There is no evidence of wrongdoing by either Joe or Hunter Biden.
      Trump faces an impeachment probe in the Democratic-led House over his urging the Ukrainian President in a July phone call to investigate the Bidens. That phone call led to a whistleblower complaint that in part alleges Trump withheld US aid to Ukraine over the matter. The President has denied doing anything improper.

      Twitter Went In On Sean Spicer’s ‘DWTS’ Debut Performance

      These Tweets About Sean Spicer On ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Don’t Hold Back

      Well, everyone, the moment we’ve been waiting for has arrived. No, I’m not talking about the next Democratic presidential debate, I’m talking about former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s reality television debut. The year 2019 has brought a lot of great things into our lives, but nothing may be a greater gift than this moment. Safe to say, these tweets about Sean Spicer on agree. Say hello to your new favorite Monday night show.

      News broke in August that former White House aide Sean Spicer would be part of Season 28 of the popular competition show Since a lot of people have been anxiously waiting to see Spicer strut his stuff and put his best foot forward. On Monday, Sept. 16, the time had finally arrived. It was revealed during the premiere that Lindsay Arnold would be his professional dance partner, and the two prepared for their first number, which was a salsa routine set to the Spice Girls anthem “Spice Up Your Life.”

      The show’s judges gave the onetime White House press secretary a score of 12 out of 30 as he shimmied, pounded on a pair of bongo drums, and enthusiastically twirled around the stage. This is the kind of thing you really have to see to believe, and Twitter was ready at their keyboards as soon as Spicer appeared on stage in a neon ruffled shirt.

      For his part, Spicer seemed to enjoy support from people like former Gov. Mike Huckabee.

      Clearly, Twitter was enjoying the show, but there’s been a lot of controversy regarding Spicer’s being a part of the new season. On Aug. 21, host Tom Bergeron addressed Spicer appearing on the show via Twitter, claiming he had “offered suggestions” on who to cast for upcoming season during a lunch with the program’s executive producer. A part of Bergeron’s statement read,

      A few months ago, during a lunch with DWTS’ new Executive Producer, I offered suggestions on for Season 28. Chief among them was my hope that , in its return following an unprecedented year-long hiatus, would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY political affiliations. I left that lunch convinced we were in agreement. Subsequently (and rather obviously), a decision was made to, as we often say in Hollywood, “go in a different direction.”

      Bergeron isn’t the only crew member that’s seemingly upset with the decision. On Aug. 21, CNN Business reported that a number of staffers were extremely upset with the decision to cast Spicer, stating that it felt like “a slap in the face.” Another staffer told CNN Business that Spicer had been “horrible” to them in the past. “It’s disgusting to think he is getting on the show andgetting paid by our company,” a staffer told CNN Business. Elite Daily reached out to Spicer’s team for comment on the ABC staffers’ claims, but did not hear back in time for publication.

      Despite the criticism, there’s a strong possibility that Spicer’s appearance on will boost ratings. Welcome to 2019 everyone, and try to enjoy the show.

      John Oliver Drags Joe Biden Over Record Player Gaffe

      On Sunday night, John Oliver dedicated part of the opening portion of his Emmy-winning show Last Week Tonight to the latest Democratic candidate debate, where frontrunner Joe Biden was asked the following question from ABC News moderator Linsey Davis:

      Mr. Vice President, I want to talk to you about inequality in schools and race. In a conversation about how to deal with segregation in schools back in 1975, you told a reporter, I dont feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather. I feel responsible for what the situation is today, for the sins of my own generation, and Ill be damned if I feel responsible to pay for what happened 300 years ago. You said that some 40 years ago, but as you stand here tonight, what responsibility do you think that Americans need to take to repair the legacy of slavery in our country?

      Biden, whos had a number of foot-in-mouth moments on the campaign trail thus far, unleashed a confusing ramble of a response that included, in part: We bring social workers into homes of parents to help them deal with how to raise their children. Its not that they dont want to help. They dont know what… they dont know what quite what to do. Play the radio. Make sure the televisionexcuse me, make sure you have the record player on at night

      In addition to no doubt offending potential African-American voters, the record player gaffe inspired a number of op-eds questioning Bidens age and fitness to be president (he is 76, which would make him the oldest person ever elected to the office). And now, we can add Olivers name to the pile-on.

      Oh, shit! That is Joe Biden saying television, then replacing it with record player, and then just barely stopping himself from saying phonograph, cracked Oliver, failing to contain his laughter.

      He then added, And lets all remember that very funny moment when Biden sends a concession telegram to Trump next November!
