"The Burisma thing is nepotism," Behar said, referring to the Ukrainian firm where the younger Biden worked. "And let's just call it what it is. It's just nepotism."
The co-hosts were discussing how, during an impeachment hearing, Republicans focused on Hunter Biden and Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., even referenced his drug use. According to co-host Meghan McCain, that was inappropriate, but it was fair game to talk about his Burisma connections.
Behar added, however, that President Trump's White House was also guilty of nepotism.
"It's all over the White House," she said.
Co-host Sunny Hostin added: "The one thing that no one's talking about is the fact that Ivanka Trump -- after taking a role in the White House -- got all of these Chinese patents for things that she had been begging to get before she got into the White House."
Behar also argued that former Vice President Joe Biden should start playing the "aggrieved father card."
"I think he needs to go out there and really shame them ... he has lost two children -- Joe Biden has. He has one son left and these shameless people are attacking his son, the one boy that he loves still, that he has to go home to at night," she said.
