Wise Old Man Lies About Son, Film at 11
Joe Biden says he’s just “more experienced than anybody” and that Hunter Biden “has done nothing wrong.”
Some things never change. Elections are better and more fair when conducted in person on Election Day. Vegetarians miss out on the fact that one of life’s greatest joys is meat. The correct way to hang toilet paper is using the “over” method. And Joe Biden is still in Washington lying about himself and his family.
A couple of weeks ago, Biden announced that he intends to “finish the job,” an ominous warning about reelecting him if we ever heard one. For the first time since that video announcement, he sat down for an interview with — who else? — friendly MSNBC. He addressed the question on everyone’s mind: Did he have a cheat sheet this time?
Okay, we’re kidding — he didn’t and won’t address that question. Here’s the real question: Can Biden, who’s clearly showing signs of dementia and who’d be 86 at the end of a second term, actually finish the job?
MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle was generally defensive on Biden’s behalf, but on the age thing she was kinda tough on the old fella. “There’s not a Fortune 500 company in the world looking to hire a CEO in his 80s,” she asserted. “Why would an 82-year-old Joe Biden be the right person for the most important job in the world?”
The stubbornly prideful Biden replied: “I have acquired a hell of a lot of wisdom and know more than the vast majority of people, and I’m more experienced than anybody that’s ever run for the office. And I think I’ve proven myself to be honorable as well as also effective.”
And if you disagree, he’ll meet you in the parking lot.
As we said, some things never change. The first thing we thought of was that infamous confrontation Biden had with a teacher during his first presidential campaign way back in 1987, when he was a spry 44 years old. “I think I have a much higher IQ than you, I suspect,” Biden humbly informed the teacher. He went on in that instance to falsely boast about a number of supposed academic accomplishments for which even the Washington Post’s “fact-checker” essentially gave him Four Pinocchios.
Biden has acquired a lot over his 50-plus years in Washington. Wisdom is not one of them. Neither is honor.
To that point, another key exchange in the interview dealt with Biden’s son Hunter. Ruhle vaguely asked about possible federal charges for Hunter — though she didn’t specify anything about corrupt business dealings, tax evasion, or lying on a form to purchase a firearm — and how those troubles impact the Biden presidency. Joe insisted Hunter is the picture of innocence. “My son has done nothing wrong,” he insisted. “I trust him. I have faith in him. And it impacts my presidency by making me feel proud of him.”
Ruhle didn’t bother following up with how the president, to whom the Justice Department and the attorney general are answerable, can get away with putting his thumbs on the scale in such a way. In fact, she misled viewers in her question, which she prefaced by saying, “There’s no ties to you.” While that may be true insofar as certain Justice Department investigations are concerned, House Republicans claim to have the proof that there are corrupt ties between Joe and Hunter Biden.
The whole point of Hunter’s scheming is that it implicates Joe.
Make no mistake: This is immediately relevant. Hunter has hired a new prominent attorney and recently met with prosecutors, which indicates possible charges, including a couple of felonies, may be forthcoming. Those prosecutors now face the headwinds of a president who said publicly that his son is innocent.
Ruhle also didn’t ask about Biden’s repeatedly unmentioned seventh grandchild, for whom Hunter appeared in court last week to try to reduce child support payments. Like a dutiful Leftmedia
journalist Democrat super PAC activist, she merely gave Joe the opportunity to broadly proclaim innocence.
On a final note, here’s another thing that never changes: Joe Biden repeating the line, “This is not your father’s Republican Party.” He did again in the interview when speaking about the debt ceiling. Home plate does get more distant when you keep moving so far out into left field.
