Hunter Biden Laughs Off Donald Trump Jr.’s Attacks With A Witty One-Liner

Hunter Biden dismissed Donald Trump Jr.’s attacks on him as “wildly comical” on Thursday’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

“That is putting it lightly,” President Joe Biden’s son said during an interview promoting his new memoir, “Beautiful Things,” which among other things details his struggles with crack addiction.

Host Jimmy Kimmel asked Biden if he knew or had ever met the eldest son of ex-President Donald Trump, who repeatedly attacked him and his father in the run-up to the 2020 election.

Biden deadpan replied:

Not that I know of, but I’ve been in some pretty rough places.

Biden also told Kimmel it was “sad” how Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), once a family friend, had morphed into a Trump sycophant.

“Politics has become so toxic,” Biden lamented. “And I think that the thing that I hope my dad is able to bring back is his genuine desire to take some of that toxicity out again. So I had a deep respect for Senator Graham. And it’s just sad to see the way in which he has decided to, not just attack me, but to approach politics.”

Gold Dips On China Data

Gold prices fell on Friday as the latest inflation data from China surprised to the upside and boosted hopes of a swift recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

Spot gold dropped 0.6 percent to $1,744.32 per ounce, after having hit its highest since March 1 at $1,758.45 an ounce on Thursday. U.S. gold futures were down 0.8 percent at $1,744.65.

Consumer prices in China were up 0.4 percent year-on-year in March, the National Bureau of Statistics said today. That exceeded expectations for an increase of 0.3 percent following the 0.2 percent contraction in the previous month.

The bureau also said that producer prices jumped an annual 4.4 percent in March – beating expectations for an increase of 3.5 percent and up sharply from the 1.7 percent gain a month earlier.

A rebound in the dollar and U.S. Treasury yields also weighed on gold prices, though the previous metal was still on course to register its first weekly gain in three.

During a debate on the global economy Thursday, Fed Chair Jerome Powell assured markets that the U.S. central bank will continue supporting the world’s largest economy without stoking inflation.

Top 10 remaining NFL free agents: Will any sign before 2021 draft?

The NFL's 2021 free agent class wasn't necessarily a star-studded group, yet more than three weeks after the market officially opened its doors, there are still some very familiar names who remain unsigned.

At this point, as the league's annual draft draws ever nearer and some teams operate with only enough salary cap space to sign their rookie classes, it's probably unlikely that many of the available veterans will leap at a deal in the next few weeks.

"(A)pparently we got to wait ’til the draft happens before anything else shakes out, because everybody has their hopes and dreams in the draft, which is understandable," said unsigned cornerback Richard Sherman on "The Cris Collinsworth Podcast featuring Richard Sherma‪n‬."

"You turn 33, and then it’s like, ‘We’ll wait until we get a young pup, and if we can’t get a young pup, we’ll take an old fool.’ So that’s where we’re sitting."
