This week’s edition of “Fox News Sunday” was worthy of a pay-per-view subscription, with Fox contributor Juan Williams ineptly defending Joe and Hunter Biden and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich patiently waiting to demolish Williams and his idiocy.
Williams was awful, right out of the gate:
We know Hunter Biden’s an addict — we know he’s an alcoholic. We know he’s had sex addiction problems. We know he’s not the son you would have.
But Joe Biden acted as a father trying to protect his son and try to help his son. I don’t think anyone’s gonna fault him for that.
Then, Williams went directly to whataboutism, which, along with hypocrisy, is the scourge of humanity. (Allow me to be a little hyperbolic, but I abhor it.)
But you compare that to the graft and the grifting from Trump golf courses, Trump hotels, Chinese shoe deals with the daughter, [and] the son-in-law getting billions from the Saudis. It’s unbelievable.
Even this week you have to compare it to the trouble we’ve heard about in New York with the sexual assault case against Trump.
But this is what Hunter Biden has come down to now. He is a distraction, a shield against all the trouble that Trump is experiencing.
Whataboutism aside, that last preposterous line was a bald-faced lie, and I suspect even Williams knew it when he said it, but Democrats do desperate Democrat things when the walls start to close in — and the walls are closing in on Joe Biden’s crackhead son and “The Big Guy,” as well.
Gingrich could hardly wait to attack Williams. “Here are the facts,” he began in response.
They may be legal. There are facts. The widow of the Moscow mayor sent millions of dollars to Hunter Biden. He got money from Kazakhstan.
He got money from Ukraine and served on a board about which he knew nothing. He got a lot of money from China and it’s a fact, Juan, that there were $3 million that has been disclosed that went to the Biden family from a Chinese billionaire. That is a fact.
Now you can decide that none of this stuff matters, but the fact is you have the Vice President of the United States taking his son on Air Force Two into China where his son is making business deals. And you just described his son. Your language, he’s a sex addict, he’s an alcoholic.
Williams, already beside himself, defensively fired back:
Is that an attack on the president? He’s not the president! He’s the son! Nepotism is not a crime — you look at the nepotism in every president and every famous family but that’s not a crime.
Now host Shannon Bream was fired up over Williams’ hypocrisy:
But Juan! You brought up the Trump family! So is there a double standard here?
Again, Juan, whataboutism. The primary reason I dislike the material is that it is not a defense of the individual or issue you are attempting to defend. Instead, it is “Oh yeah,?! “But what about such-and-such’s actions?” People, grow the world up and stop with the whataboutism. Please.
Gingrich then concluded the transaction and shut off the lights for Williams:
Why would anyone invest in Hunter, if you listen to his description of the company? They were putting money into Joe!
Bingo. Consider the following RedState articles in light of my earlier assertion that the walls are closing in on Joe Biden and his direct involvement in the pernicious dealings of the Biden Family Business:
The Bottom Line
Democrats and their lackeys in the sock-puppet media can play whataboutism, deflect, and obfuscate themselves silly, but the facts remain: Hunter Biden is likely to be indicted and the White House walls are closing in Daddy Joe — aka: “The Big Guy” — as well. And regardless of the outcome for Biden the Senior, Barack Obama said it best: “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f**k things up.”
Little did Obama know that Joe already “f**ked things up” when he was O’s vice president.
