In a recent episode of the Comedy Cellar podcast, Washington Post columnist Philip Bump abruptly left the interview when host Noam Dworman questioned him about evidence suggesting that President Joe Biden was aware of his son Hunter Biden’s alleged corrupt business dealings. The tense interaction has sparked discussions and debates in various media outlets.

Dworman pressed Bump on a text message sent by Hunter Biden to his daughter where he claimed he owed “50% of my income” to his father. Bump, who has extensively reported on the issues surrounding Hunter Biden for the Washington Post, dismissed the question, stating, “I have no idea what that means.” This refusal to engage was seemingly the final straw for Bump, who, after further questioning, announced he was leaving the show.

The host persisted with his inquiries, asking Bump, “What do you take from the text message to his adult daughter – Hunter’s text message – ‘I have to give 50% of my income to pop.'” However, Bump once again avoided the question, repeating, “I have no idea what that means. I don’t. I have no idea what that means.”

As Dworman continued to press Bump with more questions, the reporter signaled his decision to leave, saying, “I appreciate you having me on.” When the host asked if anyone had questioned Hunter’s daughter about the text message, Bump responded, “I don’t know. I don’t know.” Frustrated, Dworman asked if someone should question her, to which Bump replied, “OK, I just said I don’t know and I don’t know what to make of it, so I have nothing else to say about it. What do you want me to say?”

Dworman argued that the text message constituted evidence of corruption, saying, “Yeah, but you say, ‘There’s no evidence, no evidence.’ But there’s a text message where he says, ‘I give Pop 50% of my money.’ That’s evidence!” Bump eventually conceded, “Okay, fine! Fine. It’s evidence. I appreciate you having me on.”
