On Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday, President Biden’s embattled son Hunter addressed the many attacks by Donald Trump Jr.. Trump, who is the Executive Vice President of theTrump Organization, has repeatedly suggested that Biden only got offered prestigious positions, like being on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma, because of his name. While Trump clearly doesn’t see the irony in those attacks, Biden sees the humor.

“Does it make you crazy when you hear someone like Donald Trump Jr. saying that the only reason he does — is because he’s a Biden, and because of his last name? And how just wildly comical that is?” Kimmel asked. “It is. It is wildly comical,” Biden answered. “That’s putting it lightly.”

Biden didn’t just laugh at the attacks, he showed off his credentials.

“I went to Yale law school. I served on at least a dozen boards before Burisma,” Biden said. “I was Vice Chairman of the Board of Amtrak. I was Chairman of the Board at World Food Program U.S., supporting the largest humanitarian organization in the world. I had an expertise in corporate governance. I was asked to serve on the board for corporate governance.”

JIMMY KIMMEL: Does it make you crazy when you hear someone like Donald Trump Jr saying that the only reason he does-- is 'cause he's a Biden and because of his last name, and how just wildly comical that is? I mean, does it--

HUNTER BIDEN: That is wildly comical.

KYLIE MAR: President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, joined "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Thursday, where he spoke about being repeatedly attacked by Donald Trump Jr, executive vice president of the Trump Organization. Trump has suggested that Biden only got high-profile jobs, like being on the board at Ukrainian energy company Burisma, because of his name. Biden shot back in his new memoir, challenging the Trump children to try to get a job on their own. And on Thursday, Biden showed off his qualifications.

HUNTER BIDEN: I served on at least a dozen boards before Burisma. I was a vice chairman of the Board of Amtrak. I was chairman of the board of the-- at World Food Program US, largest-- supporting the largest humanitarian organization in the world.

KYLIE MAR: Even though a congressional inquiry found no evidence of any wrongdoing by Biden, his position at Burisma became an easy target for Republicans throughout the presidential campaign. And for that reason, Biden would not accept the position if he had it to do over again.

HUNTER BIDEN: I was a lawyer at Boies Schiller Flexner, which was how I was first approached. However, what I didn't take into account was the way in which they would use the perception against my dad. And for that, I- I have-- I wouldn't do it again.
