Joe Biden got really defensive when a CBS reporter Bo Erickson asked: “Mr. Biden, what is your response to the New York Post story about your son, sir?”
Biden had a sharp answer back and said: “I have no response, it’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.”
Hats off to the CBS reporter Bo Erickson for asking Biden a question that George Stephanopoulos refused to ask Biden at his Town Hall.
Joe Biden SNAPS at CBS reporter who had the balls to ask about the breaking stories that detail his corruption.
Attacks the reporter personally.
The walls are caving in.
Biden is not capable of withstanding this.

I asked Joe Biden: What is your response to the NYPost story about your son, sir?
He called it a “smear campaign” and then went after me. “I know you’d ask it. I have no response, it’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.” pic.twitter.com/Eo6VD4TqxD

Our Pals over at Fox News stayed busy and had this to say:
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was finally asked about the explosive New York Post report that alleges emails show his son made millions trading on his father’s influence.
His response? “I have no response.”
After not being asked about the growing controversy surrounding Hunter Biden at the ABC News town hall by moderator George Stephanopoulos, the former vice president spoke to reporters outside his private jet Friday following his campaign events in Michigan. And when he was approached about the subject by CBS News reporter Bo Erickson, Biden went after the journalist.
“Mr. Biden, what is your response to the New York Post story about your son, sir?” Erickson asked.
“I know you’d ask it,” Biden fired back. “I have no response, it’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.”
Asked about the mounting evidence that his family is corrupt, @JoeBiden lashes out at a reporter and dismisses all concerns…
I guess when you never get asked tough questions, you have a thin skin.
Too bad for Joe, this ain't going away anytime soon!https://t.co/V6rxmdoApT

The Blaze covered the story too:
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden was asked by CBS News campaign reporter Bo Erickson Friday night for his response to the New York Post’s recent story revealing emails that purportedly show Hunter Biden set up a meeting between his father and a top executive at Ukrainian energy firm, Burisma, when the younger Biden sat on its board.
Biden dismissed the Post’s story as a “smear campaign,” before castigating Erickson for daring to ask the question in the first place.
CBS reporter Bo Erickson should’ve been the one asking Joe Biden questions at Biden’s Town Hall.
Erickson is definitely not afraid to ask about the elephant in the room.
