JILL Biden said that "people don't care" about Hunter's "sex and drug claims" after Joe slammed the "smears from Donald Trump henchmen."
The former second lady was asked for her opinion on the president's "personal attacks" on Hunter during an interview with ABC's "The View" on Wednesday.
Biden said: "You know, as a mother, I mean, it really, I don’t like to see my son attacked, and certainly, I don’t like to see my husband attacked, but for me or to me these are distractions.
"I mean, this election is not about Joe Biden or Jill Biden or Kamala or Doug. It is about the American people. The American people don’t want to hear these smears against my family. The American people are struggling right now. I mean, they’re in the midst of all this chaos they’re trying to figure out how to put food on the table, you know, they don’t have jobs, they need health care. Americans don’t want to hear this.
The doctor then went on to make direct slams over the president's debating techniques.
"That’s why I thought Joe did such a great job at the debate because he addressed the issues. He talked directly to the American people and said, this is what I will do as your president, and Donald Trump just ranted. I don’t even know what he was doing up there. So this time, the debate commission has said that they will mute the mics, and they’ll each get their two minutes to speak. So the American people will clearly see their choice."
Jill's sentiments echoed comments that her husband made earlier that day.
Speaking to a Wisconsin ABC affiliate on Wednesday, Biden called the allegations against his son a "desperate campaign."
"Wisconsin's Republican Senator Ron Johnson put out a statement — on Homeland Security letterhead — saying Hunter Biden, together with other Biden family members, profited off the Biden name," reporter Adrienne Pedersen said.
She then asked what "legitimacy" there was to the claims, to which biden replied "none whatsoever."
"This is the same garbage Rudy Giuliani, Trump's henchman, it's a last-ditch effort in this desperate campaign to smear me and my family," he fumed.
Biden also noted that Senator Mitt Romney had criticized the Republican party's actions.
"Even the man who served with him on that committee, the former nominee for the Republican Party, said there's no basis to this," the Democrat said.
"And the vast majority of the intelligence people have come out and said there's no basis at all. Ron should be ashamed of himself!"
Biden's laptop has been the subject of a media storm over recent days, after the New York Post published a "smoking-gun" email that it alleged reveals how Hunter Biden introduced his father to a Ukrainian businessman, Vadym Pozharskyi, when Joe Biden was Vice President.
The laptop is also reported to contain a 12-minute video that appears to show Hunter smoking crack while engaged in a sex act with an unidentified woman, as well as numerous other sexually explicit images.
The New York Post's report claims that emails obtained, in part, suggested that Joe Biden, at his son's request, met with Pozharskyi, in April 2015 in Washington, D.C.
An email shared by the Post – alleged to be between Pozharskyi and Hunter Biden on April 17, 2015 – appeared to show Pozharskyi thanking Biden inviting him to meet his father.
The email read: "Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure."
The Democratic presidential nominee has previously claimed he has never spoken to his son about foreign business dealings, and since the email surfaced, the Biden campaign has denied he ever held a meeting with Pozharskyi.
