A columnist for The Washington Post snapped during an appearance on a podcast with host Noam Dworman this week after he was questioned about reporting on President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.

Fox News noted that Philip Bump, who has written about Hunter Biden numerous times, had been repeatedly pressed throughout the podcast about evidence of corruption in the Biden family.

“What do you take from his text to his adult daughter — Hunter texted her, ‘I had to give 50% of my income to Pop’?” Dworman asked.

“I have no idea what that means,” Bump responded. “I don’t. I have no idea what that means. It’s circumstantial evidence and you prefer that to direct evidence.”

Bump repeatedly turned down the line of questioning and eventually became agitated enough that he decided it was time to leave.

“Like I just said, I don’t know and I don’t know what to make of it, so I have nothing to say about it,” Bump said. “What do you want me to say?”

“Yeah, but you say, ‘there’s no evidence, there’s no evidence,’ but then there is a text message where he says, ‘I give Pop 50% of my money,'” Dworman responded. “That’s evidence.”

“Okay. Okay, fine. It’s evidence,” Bump responded. “I appreciate you having me on. … I feel like you want me to leave, like, just walk out in the middle of this because that way you can [inaudible]–”

Dworman responded, “Is this the standard, really? This is the way that The Washington Post handles people that disagree with them?”
