During a portion of an interview with “The Moby Pod” released on Friday, Hunter Biden stated that he is “not going to let these motherf*ckers use me as just another example of why people in recovery are never going to be okay,” and that the attacks on his business dealings are akin to how Nazis attacked their opponents and Putin attacked his critics.
He added, “I [have] continued to be under investigation for now five years for all of these conspiracy theories and things.”
He further stated, “If you can’t look at some of these people like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) or Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) and see someone that [has] been bullied, that are just absolutely suffering, they’re suffering people…I recognize that none of this is necessarily about me, they are trying to, in [the] most illegitimate way, but rational way, they’re trying to destroy a presidency. And so, it’s not about me. And in their most base way, what they’re trying to do is they’re trying to kill me, knowing that it will be a pain greater than my father could be able to handle.”
He added, “Why do people show up at my door? Because the president of the United States was going to rallies with 8,000 people that he called 45,000 people and Fox News running it from the time he stepped on stage to the time he left the building saying, where’s Hunter? So, there you go, there’s your hate. And here’s why you hate him, the reason you hate him is because he is a pedophile. Which, by the way, this whole idea that — this may not in every aspect be a Russian disinformation campaign, but it has literally every earmark of what the Russians did. There’s…eliminationist rhetoric. Eliminationist rhetoric was something that the Nazis came up with as a tool to undermine their political rivals. And then Putin has fine-tuned it.”
Biden continued, “And what Putin did when he was coming to power in the early 2000s was, there were still some real, significant voices, and some with real money and intellectual public standing inside of Russia or living as expatriates that were speaking out against Putin. And so, what did he do? He didn’t argue with them on the merits. He didn’t argue with them about economic policy and democracy and the freedom to vote, because he knew he’d lose that argument. So, what did he do? He labeled them pedophiles. He planted child pornography on their laptops and their computers. And so, maybe only 10% of the people then in the public would believe this shit, but, then, when he would turn around after he got 10, 15, 20% of the people believing the worst thing you can possibly think about a human being and then, when he turns around and [says], and also, he’s a money launderer and he is against the Russian people, it’s a lot easier for them to believe that. And, all of a sudden, you have an entire state media, an operation that is able to focus all of that and they just keep flooding the zone and flooding the zone as Steve Bannon says, and flooding the zone, then, what do you have? You have your ready-made target for all of the things that are wrong with your life or all the rage that you feel.”
Biden further addressed claims about the “Biden crime family,” by stating that his father has been in public life for a while, released “decades” of tax returns, and “we have lived in the public life. We have gone through four presidential campaigns. My entire life has been before the public. It took until, oh, lo and behold, Donald Trump figured out that, somehow, this is a criminal enterprise. It begs credulity, but we sit here and we talk about it. And I turn on ABC, ‘Face the Nation’ this morning — or [CBS], and they’re talking about well, Hunter Biden’s plea deal and this that and the other thing and who knows what happens with Rep. James Comer (R-KY) and they may find — are you kidding me? … Okay, we’re going to talk about Ukraine, again, really?”
