Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden angrily lashed out at a CBS News reporter for asking him about the New York Post's bombshell reporting of his son Hunter's business dealings.
Standing outside what appeared to be the candidate's private campaign plane, CBS Biden-beat reporter Bo Erickson asked for the former vice president's reaction to the story. Biden's response was curt, quickly turning personal:
"I know you'd ask it," Biden said, turning to Erickson. "I have no response. It's another smear campaign…Right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask."
As the New York Post's story continues to unfold, the Biden campaign has sought to limit its impact on the race by downplaying the efficacy of the claims.
