Maverick: Donald Trump Jr. attacked Anderson Cooper's handling of the Democratic debate last night after the CNN anchor claimed the president's claims against Joe and Hunter Biden were 'false.' Cooper prefaced a question to Biden during last night's debate in Ohio, by saying that there was 'no evidence of wrongdoing' by either Joe or Hunter Biden. It referred to Hunter's tenure at gas company Burisma and Trump's accusation that his father, then Vice President, had urged the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor for Burisma's benefit. The Bidens deny wrongdoing but it remains to be seen whether Trump's charge is true. In response, Don Jr. took to Twitter to declare Cooper was 'the DNC's MVP so far for the night covering for #QuidProJoe even when Hunter Biden said they talked about it. Would be nice if they called out the BS once in a while.' Joe Biden responded to Cooper: 'Look, my son did nothing wrong, I did nothing wrong. I carried out the policy of the United States government in rooting out corruption in Ukraine and that's what we should be focusing on ... Rudy Giuliani, the president and his thugs have already proven the fact that they are flat lying.'
