In an interview with Axios earlier this week, Hunter Biden suggested that the scrutiny congressional Republicans had him under was “maybe the ultimate test for a recovering addict;” the outlet also shared President Biden’s private fear that they could cause his son to relapse. And during CNN’s Inside Politics on Wednesday, host Dana Bash and Justice correspondent Evan Perez took the concern as legitimate and wagged their proverbial finger at Republicans on Capitol Hill.

According to Hunter, the future of America hinged on his ability to maintain sobriety. “I have always been in awe of people who have stayed clean and sober through tragedies and obstacles few people ever face. They are my heroes, my inspiration (…) I have something much bigger than even myself at stake. We are in the middle of a fight for the future of democracy," he told Axios.

After reading those lines, Bash and Perez marveled at his pose and openness:

BASH: This is kind of more of the human element of what we're talking about here.

PEREZ: It’s personal.

BASH: It's very personal. He is very open about the fact that he is an addict. He was very much off the wagon when a lot of this happened. And part of what he is trying to do – he's saying here – is stay clean – [inaudible] for himself, for his family, for his father, and he believes for politics, which is democracy.
