During a campaign event in Peterborough, New Hampshire, former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden accidentally made the argument to jail his own son Hunter Biden when he claimed that fossil fuel executives should be put in jail.
Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, served as an executive on the board of a Ukrainian gas company, Burisma Holdings. Hunter Biden made $80,000 a month while serving on the board.
“In order to curb the rate of pollution, Biden explained, we need to hold fossil fuel executives ‘liable for what they have done, particularly in those cases where there are underserved neighborhoods,’” Biden said at the event. “When they don’t deliver, Biden offered, ‘put them in jail.’”
According to Biden’s statements, his son would face potential jail time.

As the 2020 election gets closer, Biden’s climate change rhetoric is becoming more extreme in an effort to appease the far-left Democratic base.
The former Vice President has went as far as proposing plans that would eliminate hundreds of thousands of jobs.
“The answer is yes,” Biden said when stating that he would be fine with cutting “hundreds of thousands of blue collar workers in the interest transitioning to [a] greener economy.”
“The answer is yes because the opportunity for those workers is to switch to high paying jobs,” Biden added. “We should, in fact, be making sure right now that every new building built is energy contained, that it doesn’t leak energy, that in fact we should be providing tax credits for people to be able to make their homes turn to solar power. There are all kinds of folks — right here in California, we’re now on the verge of having batteries that are about the size of the top of this podium that you can store energy when in fact the wind isn’t blowing and the sun isn’t shining. We have enormous opportunities.”
