While interviewing former Vice President Joe Biden over the weekend, NBC Today co-host Savannah Guthrie grilled the Democrat presidential candidate on his son Hunter's shady dealings in Ukraine, at one point even calling them "sleazy."

Guthrie asked, "Has it occurred to you that there’s a certain irony here, that here the President is accused of and has acknowledged wanting to get information about your son Hunter and his dealings with Ukraine and this process of impeachment has ensured that everyone knows about Hunter’s dealings with Ukraine?"

Biden quickly responded, "That’s a good thing. And no one’s found anything wrong with his dealings with Ukraine except they say it sets a bad image."

But Guthrie pressed further, "Do you think it was to wrong for him to take that position knowing that it was really because that company wanted access to you?"

Biden then snapped, "That’s not true. You’re saying things you do not know what you are talking about. No one’s said that. Who said that? Who said that?"

Standing her ground, Guthrie replied, "Well, don’t you think that it’s just one of those things where people think, well, that seems kind of sleazy. Why would he have that job if not for who his father was?"
