Vice President Joe Biden said his grandson asked him recently about an internet meme of him molesting a child at his son’s funeral.
“‘Pop, you have to run pop,” Biden said, claiming that his grandson Hunter asked him about a photo of the Vice President clutching him at his son Beau Biden’s funeral.
Biden said he relayed the story to show supporters that both he and his family were aware of how Trump could attack the Biden family during the 2020 election, but he spoke in detail about a conversation he had with his grandson Hunter.
Biden said that his grandson was gravely aware of the story, which is why he had to run for president.
“Pop I know it’s going to be mean, they’re going to say bad things about daddy,” Biden continued, saying that he was quoting his grandson. “Mommy and Daddy had a divorce and they’re going to really go after that.”
Biden elicited sympathy from the crowd as he related the story.
“My generic point is they know how tough it’s going to be,” he said, referring to his family.
