Automatic TRANSCRIPT

I twenty five to the top of the hour eight hundred nine four one Shawn you want to be part of the program will hit the phones here in a second let let's do a little deeper dive into this hunter Biden interview on fake news CNN I I I mean he is admitting he had on now good morning America this morning Amy Rohrbach is doing the interview Robach I think is our name anyway so it is emitting everything that we knew about no experience as you like okay then why do you think you got on the boards what do you think you got these deals I don't know probably in retrospect I gasp maybe because I was on an Amtrak board once then that wouldn't qualify but you listen to this now if you want to know about more media bias we were discussing or James o'keefe are at at and and the last half hour if you want to know more about media bias this is it because it was Donald Trump junior or Eric trump for Barron trump they be all over him let's play I want to get to the heart of it did you and your father ever discuss Ukraine as I said the only time was after a news account it wasn't a discussion and anyway there's no but to this now we never did your dad said I hope you know what you're doing if I do and I said I do and that was literally the end of our discussion why because it meant I was raised as a United States there's little to nothing as a young man or as a full grown adult that that my father in some way has not influence over as it does not serve either one of us when he said I hope you know what you're doing what did he think you were doing what he read the press reports that I joined the board of reason which was a Ukrainian natural gas company and there's been a U. L. a lot of misinformation about me not about my dad nobody buys that but the prizes idea that I was on qualified to be on the board what were your qualifications to be on the board of very small well I was vice chair of the board of Amtrak for five years I was the chairman of the board of the U. and world food program I was a lawyer for boys Schiller Flexner one of the most prestigious law firms in the world you didn't have any extensive knowledge about natural gas or Ukraine itself so no but I think that I had as much now as anybody else was on the board I've if not more in the list you gave me the reasons why you're on that for you did not list the fact that you were the son of the course yeah no I don't really think that place I think that it is impossible for me to be on any of the boards are just mention without saying that I'm the son of the vice president and six you are paid fifty thousand dollars a month for your position look on privacy is the one thing that I don't have to do is sit here and open my complete no as it relates to how much money I make a make it did or didn't but it's all been reported if your last name wasn't biting do you think you would have been asked to be on the board of a response I don't know I don't know probably not I I don't think that there's a lot of things that would happen in my life that that if my last name was in fine why did you leave the board in April it's a five year term I need not to I think it's pretty obvious what this is your opportunity to say why well because this is what becomes a distraction because I have to sit here and answer these questions and so that's why I'm committed that I will serve on any words or I won't work directly for any foreign entities when my dad because president do you think that should be a rule across the board for any administration outlook that's the role that I'm gonna be here too do you regret being on the board to begin with no I don't regret being on the board what I regret is not taking into account that there would be a Rudy Giuliani and a and present United States that would be listening to these these ridiculous conspiracy idea which has again been completely debunked by everyone we are thinking how could that not have crossed your mind you wouldn't fall just a little bit you're got like maybe this isn't a good idea to go and sit on the board of the company I said it I said you in retrospect I wish my judgment you never it never you never thought this might not look right you know what I mean healing and what did I make a mistake well maybe in the in the in the grand scheme of things yeah but did I make a mistake based upon some on at the collapsed absolutely not the president has repeatedly said that you received one point five billion dollars from China despite no experience in for no apparent reason obviously fact checkers have said that that is not true this is a little it has no basis in fact in anyway I have you received any money from business dealings not at all the ones that don't want to definitely out one point five billion it's crazy they feel like they have the license to go out and say whatever they want feels to me like living and some kinds of Alice in Wonderland where here up on the real world and then you fall down the rabbit hole and you know the president's Cheshire cat asking you questions about crazy things that they don't have any resemblance to the reality of of anything that has to do with me it's so here's the answer no one ever paid me one point five billion dollars at the end if they had I would not be doing this if you're free we saw you in those photos getting off of airforce two with your daughter with your father with my dad and I went there because my daughter was on the trip to did you talk about China or your deal with China a twelve hour flight over open of course that never came your father did shake hands with Mr Lee the correct in the lobby of the hotel I don't remember but probably yeah I hope so I will be did is my friend don Henley yeah for for almost thirteen years enter yeah I understand certainly Amy whether I'm in New York or whether I am in Washington DC a friend in a business associate is in the hotel and my dad saying there is it inappropriate for me to have coffee with them so that I mean anything was not a mistake it was not on what do you say to people who believe this is exactly why people hate Washington vice president's son can make money income our father is doing official government well I I don't know what to tell you I made a mistake.
