Despite the attacks, the former vice president said his son is “doing great” and weathering the attacks on leveled against him.

“He’s doing great,” Biden said, adding, “I talk to him almost every day.”

Conservatives have ripped into Hunter’s previous appointment to the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, suggesting that it was improper for him to accept the position while his father was in office.

Additionally, Biden called Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-S.C.) decision to press for an investigation of his family’s dealings a “disappointment.”

“It is hurtful, particularly when guys like Lindsey Graham, who is a friend of mine, do these things,” he said.

However, he said “presidents can’t hold grudges” adding that he doesn’t want to respond in kind with attacks on President Donald Trump’s children.
