News Today || Headlines Today

Joe Biden told Oprah Winfrey that his son Hunter ‘is the smartest guy I know’ during a Zoom event.

The Democratic nominee made a surprise appearance Wednesday on a virtual get-out-the-vote event hosted by Winfrey that focused on voters in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Minnesota and Ohio.

During the event, Biden spoke to Mildred Madison, a Michigan resident who drove over 600 miles to cast her vote in person after her absentee ballot never arrived.  

Biden told Madison he spoke with late son Beau as well as Hunter, wife Jill and mom Catherine about becoming Barack Obama‘s running mate. Listing his family’s qualities, the Democrat described Hunter as ‘the smartest guy I know’.

Joe Biden’s youngest son has spent months under intense scrutiny over his business dealings in foreign countries, and was plunged into yet another scandal last week when photos and emails from his laptop were leaked to the New York Post.

Tucker Carlson said Wednesday that a dossier of documents detailing Hunter Biden’s business deals went missing in the post, somewhere between Manhattan and Los Angeles. 

He also revisited his interview the previous night with Tony Bobulinski, Hunter’s business partner, and aired new audio.  

On Tuesday night Hunter Biden’s former business partner Bobulinski told Fox News that he had twice met Joe – on May 2 and May 3, 2017, in Los Angeles – and that Joe was told by Hunter that they were working on a Chinese-backed infrastructure project together. 

Bobulinski also alleged, without providing evidence, that Hunter had received $5 million from the Chinese partners, and that Joe was referred to in correspondence as ‘the big guy’, expecting a share of the profits.  

Audio was played of Rob Walker – whose wife works for Jill Biden – allegedly warning Bobulinski not to go public with information.  

The Biden campaign has not responded to the Bobulinski interview. 

The presidential candidate did not elaborate on his point about Hunter before going on to say he decided to be Obama’s running mate ‘because my mom [like Madison] was not about to take no for an answer’. 

Biden also told Madison that her story ‘gives me that extra boost of hope and energy and optimism for the country.’ 

During the event, Biden spoke to Mildred Madison, a 94-year-old Michigan resident who drove over 600 miles to cast her vote in person after her absentee ballot never arrived

Referencing his stump speech slogan that ‘we’re in a battle for the soul of America,’ Biden told Madison, ‘You are the soul of America.’     

He also pledged to visit Madison if he wins the presidency.   

Democrats are increasingly optimistic Biden can win at least Michigan and Pennsylvania back, and he’s making a play for Ohio as well.  

Winfrey was an early high-profile endorser of Barack Obama, and her support helped boost him in the 2008 Democratic primary. 

But while she endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016, she largely sat out of the campaign that year.

Madison had been caring for a sister in Illinois when she made the trip to Detroit earlier this month to cast an absentee ballot in the fall election. 

She said she decided to go to Detroit after her August primary ballot arrived late. She traveled from the Chicago area with a son and daughter.

‘Vote because your life depends on it,’ Madison told FOX 2 Detroit. ‘And this year it truly depends on it that you vote. Not only for you but for your children and their children.’
