The TDS crowd is still trying to spin the Hunter Biden influence peddling scandal into a nothingburger despite all of the revelations showing that the business dealings of the Biden family are ultra shady at best. Fox News host Chris Wallace on Thursday intimated that the allegations against former Vice President Joe Biden are untrue. His reasoning is about as goofy as a soup sandwich.
While discussing the upcoming presidential debate, Wallace claimed that if the accusations against Joe Biden were true, the FBI would have confirmed it by now. While discussing the issue, he said, “It’s certainly going to be brought up tonight.” He continued, “If Kristen Welker doesn’t bring it up — and I think she will — the president will bring it up.”
Then, Wallace engaged in some good ol’ fashioned whataboutism:
“I think the president has to be a little careful because you heard Barack Obama yesterday point out that The New York Times had revealed that Donald Trump has — not had, but has — a secret bank in China. And said that, you know, if that had come out when he was president, people would have called him Beijing Barry. It seems to me that Biden is going to have something to come back at.”
“The question is whether or not in fact he personally benefitted financially, the 10% for the big guy. Remember that the hard drive —it gets complicated here, the computer guy in Delaware gave to the FBI in December of 2019 — so about 10-11 months ago — they’ve had and one assumes that had Biden taken money from a foreign entity while he was vice president and had he lied because we’ve seen his tax returns from 2019 that we would have seen the fruits of that investigation by now.”
Wallace is one of many in the “Orange Man Bad” crowd who is desperately attempting to convince the American public to believe that there is absolutely nothing untoward about the Biden family’s business ties to the Chinese Communist Party. However, with the recent revelations coming from Hunter Biden associate Tony Bobulinski, that line of propaganda is unlikely to be effective.
The left knows it.
This is why they are trying to suppress the story as much as possible. Left-leaning news outlets are either refusing to report on it or trying to downplay it. Social media companies Twitter and Facebook throttled the story, preventing it from being shared. Even Hollywood got in on the act, releasing embarrassing footage of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani for his role in exposing the Bidens.
But in so doing, they only drew more attention to the affair. Wallace is likely wrong about the moderator of the final presidential debate bringing up the matter. In fact, if she does, she will allow Biden to get away with a cursory denial. However, if he’s smart, President Trump won’t let the former vice president get away with dodging the question, nor will he hesitate to bring it up himself when Welker tries to ignore it.
Despite the best efforts of the left, Biden will not be able to escape the story. The question is whether or not this will impact his chance of defeating Trump in November.
