Joe Biden told a story about bullying Ukraine into firing a prosecutor he didn’t like when he was vice president. It made him look tough like he meant business and was willing to play hardball in foreign affairs. Well, now it turns out the reason he wanted the prosecutor gone had nothing to do with US interests in Ukraine – it was because the prosecutor was going after Joe’s layabout, crackhead son Hunter.
No one – not even his supporters – is willing to call Joe Biden an honest man. The guy has more big fish stories than the most talkative barfly, and he persists even though he’s been caught lying again and again and again.
So far, though, they’ve just been big fish stories – lies that make him a liar, but not much more. This story, though, shows us what a corruptible – and corrupt – man Biden can be. Bullying a foreign power so your neerdowell kid can collect an income without doing any work is exploiting US resources, and the office of the vice presidency, for personal gain. That’s not just wrong, it’s illegal.
An honest person would say Joe Biden deserves to be in a retirement home, where he has access to the kind of medical care a man with failing mental health needs in his twilight years. But with this new revelation, it’s clear Biden has crimes to answer for against the American people – crimes the FBI tried to cover up, even as they were attempting to undermine our President.
In 2016, the chant was “lock her up”. Recently we’ve been hearing “lock him up”. How about we just lock them all up?
