Ross: Trump and Biden dodging questions hurts all of us
Donald Trump’s Ukraine conversation has now become America’s most analyzed phone call, and yet the President would not answer a simple question.
“What do you or what did you want President Zelinsky to do with regard to Joe and Hunter Biden?” a reporter asked Trump.
Trump was quick to call Biden corrupt, but would not say what he was expecting from the Ukrainian president.
“The question sir was what did you want President Zelensky to do about Vice President Biden and his son Hunter?” the reporter reiterated.
“It’s a whole hoax and you know who’s playing into the hoax? People like you,” Trump fired back.
And I bring this up because you know who else evaded a question on this topic when it came up an hour later at a forum in Las Vegas?
“Have you talked to your son about any of this?” a moderator asked Joe Biden.
“We communicated a couple times, but look, there is zero, zero, zero, zero, evidence of any assertion being made. I’m not going to go into it now,” Biden responded.
These evasions are crazy. These questions can’t be that hard to answer.
So, Hunter – please, hold a news conference! There are 398 days to go in the campaign, and unless you clear it up, this story alone could put a hundred thousand Trump tweets on my iPhone. I’ll put up with a lot in this job, but I am not going to erase pictures of the grandchild.
