Man Claimed to be ‘Struggling Business Owner’ in Biden Ad is Actually a Rich ‘Angel Investor’

Joe Biden’s campaign team recently released a campaign ad starring Joe Malcoun, a self-proclaimed struggling bar owner who says that if Joe Biden is not elected President “a lot of restaurants and bars that have been mainstays for years” will go out of business. There’s a key issue with the ad however, Mr. Malcoun is not the “struggling” business owner” he says he is. In reality, he is a” wealthy tech investor whose startup was seeded by a large family inheritance.” The man compared receiving the large inheritance to “winning the lottery” in a past interview and has used that money to become an angel investor in Michigan.

Malcoun co-owns the bar Blind Pig along with founding CKM Captial Partners back in 2013 where he then went on to invest in several small tech companies. The owner has claimed that the bar’s low business is a direct result of Trump’s Coronavirus efforts however conflicting reports show Malcoun also claimed the low business is due to failed communication efforts on his part.

In a report from The Daily Wire:

Usually you become a CEO and you make money, and then the money allows you to become an angel investor first,” he said in the 2018 interview. “I happened to have different circumstances where I had money [first].”

“There weren’t a lot of people showing up, which is frankly what we wanted and expected,” he said in an interview with MLive. “Now that we tried it and saw it’s really hard to communicate what it means to have a really socially distanced and live music show, we decided it’s not really worth trying.”

It is also odd for Malcoun to blame Trump considering it has been Democratic governors that forced businesses such as the Blind Pig to shut down, and Biden promised to do “whatever it takes” to stop the coronavirus, which would include a national shutdown order. Trump has actively refused to institute such an economy-destroying order.

For example, Malcoun has praised Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s (D-MI) response to the pandemic. Whitmer has instituted lockdown orders that harmed businesses without slowing the spread of COVID-19.

Clearly, Malcoun has not been paying attention to the fact Biden plans to implement tax hikes and changes to the energy industry that would hurt small businesses like the Blind Pig, not that it would actually negatively impact his day-to-day life.

How about sending them to one of the communist or marxist countries for 4 years without financial support and let them experience a country already socialist. That definately will change them within 2 weeks if they have a brain. Take it from someone who has been there and doesn’t want this country to become another third world country.

I’ve said the same thing. The only way to get close to this is to remove ALL federal funding for anything that isn’t constitutional – which would be just about everything. No federal welfare, no funding of schools from the feds, nothing! Then see how the democrat states fair against the republican states. That is the way it should be because WE didn’t elect those people in those states, yet because so much is federally funded, we are funding their irresponsible decisions.

Yes,,,, u could not b more right….I believe that if these so called socialist (meaning our young ) were taught what capitalism truly is and were given the choice to which one they would follow,,,,I am positive they would choose capitalism,,,and the dems would win very few elections….I also believe the dems know this to b a fact….That’s why they choose this destructive path to go down….

We The American Voters have got to Vote all of the delusional radical
Democratic politicians out of office. They have allowed Rioters to-
destroy Businesses. And attack innocent people on the Streets.
This is being done in Cities and States govern By Delusional-
Radical Democratic Mayors and Governors. Who don’t know how to-
Govern. The Democratic Registered Voters better wake up.

PELOSI, BIDEN AND THE REST OF THE LEFT WANT TO DESTROY OUR SECOND AMENDMENT BY FORCIBLY TAKE OUR RIGHT TO DEFEND OURSELVES.

THEY WANT TO CONFISCATE ALL OUR GUNS SO WE DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO DEFEND OURSELVES WHEN NEEDED.

THOSE LEFT HYPOCRITES THAT ARE RULING US, DON’T CARE IF WE GET ATTACKED. THEY JUST WANT OUR MONEY!!!

KEEP IN MIND THAT THOSE RICH ‘BIG WIGS’ IN THE GOV’T. HAVE THEIR OWN PRIVATE BODYGUARDS THAT ARE ARMED WITH FULLY AUTOMATIC WEAPONS (THAT FOR US, THOSE WEAPONS ARE ILLEGAL)….BUT FOR THEM, THEY ARE ‘ABOVE THE LAW’! PLUS THEY LIVE IN A SECURED ‘CASTLE’ THAT HAS WALLS, CAMERAS AND ALARMS!

SOME OF THOSE ‘LEFTISTS’ EVEN GO AROUND WITH BULLETPROOF VESTS.

IF WE, THE U.S. CITIZENS, COULD HAVE OR AFFORD ARMED BODYGUARDS 24 HRS A DAY, THEN I SUPPOSE WE WOULD NOT BE ARMED OURSELVES AND PROBABLY GIVE UP OUR GUNS PEACEFULLY IF WE HAD ANY. 

ALSO, WE MIGHT CONSIDER GIVING UP OUR GUNS IF FIRST, PELOSI, BIDEN, THE LEFT AND THE BIGWIGS WHO HAVE ARMED BODYGUARDS WOULD GIVE UP THEIR PROTECTION OF THEIR BODYGUARDS, ALL WEAPONS AND ARMOR PROTECTION (BULLET PROOF VESTS, ETC.)

LET’S PLAY FAIR……DOES OUR LEFTIST GOVERNMENT WANT TO PROTECT THE U.S. CITIZENS? THAT IS A QUESTION I’D LIKE TO HAVE ANSWERED!

IF OUR U.S.A. DIDN’T HAVE GUNS, WE WOULD BE OVERRUN BY OUR ENEMIES!

SWEDEN & SWITZERLAND HAVE A RULING THAT THOSE WHO ARE AND WERE IN THEIR MILITARY, CAN KEEP THEIR MILITARY WEAPONS EVEN AFTER THEY ARE DISCHARGED FORM THEIR SERVICE! THEY ALSO HAVE A RULING THAT THOSE WHO HAVE WEAPONS HAVE TO FIRE THEM AT A GUN RANGE AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR AND KEEP THEIR GUNS OILED AND IN WORKING CONDITION! 

BECAUSE OF THAT RULE, NO OTHER COUNTRY OR ENEMIES ATTEMPTED TO INVADE SWEDEN OR SWITZERLAND. 

IF WE DIDN’T HAVE OUR GUNS, WE PROBABLY WOULD BE TALKING GERMAN OR JAPANESE BECAUSE WE WOULD NOT HAVE ANY FIREPOWER TO DEFEND US AND OTHER COUNTRIES THAT WERE ATTACKED DURING THE WARS.

What in the world does this man believe that Joe Biden is going to do to help bars and restaurants stay in business? Looking at the Democrat platform I see just the opposite scenario.

There has never been such a stark difference between the Republican party and the democommunist party. I began watching the American Communist Party (CPUSA) website back in 2004 when they endorsed John sKerry. The commies don’t even run their own candidates anymore, since the democommie party became one with them. They just instruct their comrades to vote the democommunist ticket. If one peruses the now declassified records of the 30s, 40s and 50s, one will see the democommies running interference for Soviet communists and commie spies. This is why Reagan said: I didn’t leave the democrap party, they left me.

So bars and restaurants are going to go under no matter who is President, but the guy saying he is willing to shutdown the country again is certainly not going to make them succeed better than the guy willing to open up again. Dumbest commercial ever but I guess that is the voter base they are going after.

Just more from Lying idiot Joe Biden. I agree that the man is incapable of telling a truth. From Harry Reid’s mouth, “Why tell the truth if a lie works better?”! And laughing because he had told a lie the people of Nevada believed and the republican lost because of it. They have no shame and everything they say is probably a lie as old Harry Reid recommenced and bragged about. They think we are all stupid and sheeple to be lead. Sadly they have been doing this since forever!

The majority of the people that have ads out for Biden are paid quit well for doing them. There is one by the name of Maggie from Phoenix AZ, who claims she can’t take another year of this that Trump hasn’t done anything for her and her business(she has a beauty shop).. What a LIAR–did you not get $$ for your business during the pandemic, Did you NOT get a stimulus of $1200 and for your child(ren) if you have any? Trump did bot have to give this money out BUT he wanted to help the American people. And yes he wants to help us again BUT it is the DumboRATS that are holding the door such on that. You have your Pelosi, Schumer, Nadller, Schiff, Walters, all these so called government people that refuse to help you out because they can’ get money for their failing states, for those illegals(that by the way it is YOUR taxes that is taking care of them), they even want $$ for those sitting in jail along with giving them video phone calls, and Nancy Pelosis favorite opera house. Now if you don’t agree fine but GIVE THE $$ YOU RECEIVED TO HELP YOU OUT BACK!! Because IF Biden is stupidly elected you are going to experience the biggest depression this country has ever seen and lived through.

It is absolutely useless to tell people that Joe Biden is a LIAR. If these fools don’t know it by now, they NEVER will. It really is difficult to understand how brain dead the people who support Joe Lyin Biden. The facts and evidence are overwhelming.

If The Ten Commandments were posted at every voting precinct a lot of folks might vote a lot more sensibly. Also, if it was pointed out, no gas, would mean no travel, no shipping food, no growing food, and many employees being laid off. The domino effect would crush all of us. Biden would destroy cheap energy and make us the poorest nation on earth. Even someone with a gnat sized brain should understand that! Have a nice day and pray the truth gets through to all.
