Donald Trump Jr jokes he’d be IN JAIL if he ‘did what Hunter Biden has done’ during speech at gun range

DONALD Trump Jr jokingly turned the tables on the Hunter Biden email scandal and said he’d “be in Rikers Island prison” if he was in Hunter's shoes.

Speaking to a crowd at a Daytona Beach shooting range, Trump Jr said, “I’d be in jail a long time ago. I’d call my friend Kyle, I’d say put me on the phone."

"I’ll be in Rikers Island prison, I’d be feeding quarters into a pay phone trying to do a little rally," he added while making phone gestures and said, "My buddy would be holding this up here."

Trump Jr said he’d be giving a “stump speech” while doing his best “not to drop the soap” and saying he wouldn’t play Despacito.

“Because that would be pandering,” he said – taking a jab at Joe Biden, who played the song on his phone during a Miami Florida campaign rally aiming at boosting his share of Latino votes.

Don Jr has been outspoke about the Biden family since the New York Post published an article about a “smoking gun email” Hunter received from Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to Ukrainian gas company Burisma’s board.

Critics of the Democratic presidential nominee have often tried to attack and question the former vice president’s relationship with Ukraine.

According to the Post’s article, Hunter joined the board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma in 2014, around the time Biden was helping conduct the Obama administration’s foreign policy with Ukraine.

President Donald Trump and his supporters have alleged that Biden pushed for the firing of Ukraine’s top prosecutor to protect his son and Burisma from any investigation.

The Post's story claims that Hunter introduced Biden to Pozharskyi less than a year before Biden pushed to fire the prosecutor.

Biden responded to the claims during the final presidential debate last Thursday saying he's never "taken a penny from any foreign source."

At Wednesday’s rally, Don Jr also mentioned the latest breaking news of former Department of Homeland Security Chief of Staff Miles Taylor.

Taylor was a well-known Donald Trump critic and was revealed as the person who wrote the anonymous New York Times Op-Ed – which turned into a book.

“Remember, remember the story that went for weeks? The guy ‘anonymous?’ Yeah, so they just found out who it is.

“Remember they told us it was a very high level administration official? It was a DHS staffer!” he said with a laugh.

The president’s son made his third campaign stop on behalf of his father on Wednesday.

Don Jr made references to guns, shooting and hunting throughout his speech – while also highlighting some of his father’s accomplishments like the recent peace deals in the Middle East.

“Donald Trump is apparently doing it all wrong, according to experts. That’s like being an expert on the shooting range and not hitting the target ever,” he said.

Last week, Trump Jr called Biden the “most corrupt and compromised presidential candidate ever.”

“If journalists bothered to look into Biden and his family like they did to my family for the last four years, the Democrats wouldn’t be in a situations where their nominee could be the most corrupt and compromised candidate in the history of American presidential politics,” he tweeted.
