On Wednesday, Former Daily Show Host and Famous left-leaning comedian, Jon Stewart, admits that Hunter Biden’s position on the board of a Ukrainian gas and energy company is “corruption, straight up.”
Hunter Biden’s position on the Burisma Board has been scrutinized by the right for over 2 years and this may be the first instance of a prominent liberal admitting its criminal nature.
Stewart was speaking on his podcast, “The Problem with Jon Stewart”, with British journalist Gabriel Gatehouse about Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Stewart started, “Let’s say it was real and people just thought, well, the one thing in it maybe is, 10 percent to the big guy, which is circumstantial at best. But as far as like, look, Hunter Biden being on the board of –”
“Burisma,” Gatehouse replied
“To me, that’s corruption – straight up off the bat,” said Stewart.
“I don’t need a laptop with like a hint of circumstantial evidence,” Stewart continued. “Now tying Joe Biden to it, that’s gonna take some digging. And if it’s real, you know, that’s a thing,” he added.
“But the idea that nepotism would allow much larger amounts of money to flow into the hands of people unqualified, to be in the positions that they’ve been accepted because you think those countries are trying to buy influence.”
“Welcome to the f—ing world. And I think, I think it’s a huge problem on its face. Forget about any secret laptop.” Stewart concluded.
This is an emphatic expression of awareness and concern coming from a side of the aisle that has rarely spoken on this topic.
Biden recently spoke with CNN’s Jake Tapper defending the attacks on his son saying:
“This is a kid who got, not a kid – he’s a grown man. He got hooked on – like many families have had happen, hooked on drugs. He’s overcome that. He’s established a new life.”
“I’m confident that he is – what he says and does are consistent with what happens. And for example, he wrote a book about his problems and was straightforward about it. I’m proud of him.” Biden said.
Biden also claimed he didn’t know about the “gun” situation.
