There were much meatier scandals every day for 4 years.

Also, Hunter Biden is inspiring others to get the help that they need like he's an actual human. You haven't heard him, high on cocaine, complain once about how the media is treating his dad.

Fox went with on-air revenge porn last night. I can't decide if the depravity to do it or the stupidity to think it will accomplish anything is more jarring.

Trump and the GOP were chomping at the bit when Biden was nominated. They'd get to attack him for 1) senility and misspeaking, 2) inappropriate public touching, 3) a wayward child.

All three provide cover for Trump. A nuclear arsenal of shiat, attacking Biden for at least three of the things Trump exhibits would be a Karl Rove-type marvel. Cover your own shiat-smeared ass with the much smaller foibles of your opponent.

Then Covid happened, tossing the entire salad into the air. They pushed a major made-up scandal about molesttion that failed to stick (remember that?). The senility thing didn't really stick, because Trump's mouth is a cesspool. And it turned out no one cared about Hunter Biden. The NY Post were like children trying to build a skyscraper with liquid manure.

Didn't work. During a pandemic and other crises, turns out you have to actually lead.

And Spain. Or was it Portugal? One of those legalized all hard drugs with government funded distribution centers to dole out doses and safely dispose of used paraphernalia. Has worked absolute wonders since then.

We have had 4 years of whataboutism, extremely predictable and on brand shiny object distractions, Hunter Biden is a troubled man who has seen his mother and half of his siblings die. He's been through harrowing PTSD. He's not in office.

Whereas Matt Gaetz is a trust fund brat legacy, perpetually protected and shielded by his judge father. He's thrown his weight around, gone around and pissed everybody off, taken bribes, partaken in underage sex, obviously cruised high schools, degraded women by showing their naked pictures at work, prowled around with his crooked, skeevy douchebros, embezzling, stealing identities and causing real harm.

Hunter Biden has mostly harmed himself.

Do you see the damn difference.

All that tells me is the Democrats can do the exact thing Republican dolts create rage-porn-fanfiction about.

Hilary Clinton looks up from a pile of kidnapped fetuses, her mouth dripping adrenochrome onto her Soros League badge. She tells you in the most deadpan voice "No one will ever believe you" and then she returns to feeding. The moon is full, your blood runs cold.

I had not realized Hunter Biden had gone so far off the rails.

Double props to him for pulling his life back together after that kind of collapse. The streets are full of guys who couldn't, even with loving families.

White trash feel superior when the "you think you're better than me" types suffer.

There, I explained it.

Don't ask me to explain why they feel that way. I just used up my entire decade's budget of understanding allocated for those pieces of shiat.
 
2021-04-10 4:56:40 PM  
I think the idea that hunter Biden crap made no difference at all in the voters' minds is false. It clearly didn't give trump the election.

It requires actual polling of likely voters saying it influences them and such to make those conclusions.

All the Hunter Biden stuff convinced me not to vote for Hunter Biden in the 2020 presidential elections.

We really dodged a bullet there.
 
2021-04-10 4:59:20 PM  
After, by my count, at least 28 years of the GOP screaming about nothing-burger fake outrages they've lost any credibility with everyone who isn't an out fascist.

We know they're full of shiat. They know they're full of shiat. The whole world knows it.

Even if they do have something true to say it's so poisoned by three+ decades of dishonesty everyone sane is gonna be skeptical about it anyway.

FTA: The Biden family staged an intervention at their home in Delaware in 2019, inviting two counselors from a rehab centre to dinner. Hunter swore and ran from the house but was chased down the driveway by his father, who "grabbed me, swung me around, and hugged me. He held me tight in the dark and cried for the longest time. Everybody was outside now."

...and conservatives think this is supposed to make President Biden look bad somehow?

Luke 15:22-24 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry: For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.

I feel terrible for Hunter Biden. I do. I don't know what it's like to struggle with addiction, but I can't imagine the added weight of struggling with addiction in the public eye while an entire political party and its followers try to paint you as a pedophile crackhead makes the road on or towards sobriety any easier. I also feel terrible for Joe having to see his only surviving son smeared in such a disgusting manner, not just on the Internet, but on TV, knowing he can't do anything about it.

I wish people would get off his ass. He doesn't work for the government, he doesn't work for the Biden administration, he doesn't make appearances on behalf of the Biden administration anywhere. He's a private citizen. He's not like the Trump spawn who couldn't keep their filthy, inbred fingers out of everything for four years.

Frankly, I'm surprised he hasn't eaten a gun by this point. I don't know that I'd have the mental fortitude to put up with all of this as long as he has.

Also, has anyone seen my cocaine?

Can Hunter sue Fox for posting the porn? If the GQP only had some policy to sell to the people instead of this BS.

I don't care about Hunter Biden or his laptops. I want a solution to this pandemic.

And no, "herd immunity" is not an acceptable answer.

Is that the scandal where Biden allegedly groped an underage girl in full view of an audience? I have a question about that. I have an acquaintance who refused to vote for Biden because she believes he groped a young girl, saying it's worse than anything Trump ever did (not surprisingly, she's a lifelong Republican). I've tried looking into it, but all I can find is video posted on far right propaganda sites, and I refuse to watch anything by lying fearmongers like those. What really happened with Biden and that young girl? Was it all blatant lies, or something blowj way out of proportion...or both?

Hunter, the past 5 years have been hard for us all but I'm glad you waited until your dad was out of office to go on a crack, vodka and hookers binge. I'm not judging, sounds fun but a bit too hardcore for me.  But hey... when your mom and brother dies and you lose your marriage ... sometimes you gotta say f*ck it.

/crack and vodka
//and hookers!

I know that Portugal decriminalized drug use in the nineties and set up community intervention plans, and they are the lone Western nation that isn't struggling with impossible addiction and overdose rates.

I also know that Washington and Oregon have both decriminalized drugs. Let's see where this leads. Washington needs better drug treatment centers (not run by the private prison corporations) but I'm hopeful.

The ages, dates and sibling status got me to look up the Biden sons' birthdays.
Beau was born Feb 3, 1969, and Hunter was born Feb 4, 1970.

They were probably very close.
 
2021-04-10 5:21:48 PM  
It didn't work because Hunter Biden's issues are relatable problems. Hell, I had a uncle addicted to barbiturates (clean 25 years now), and a stepfather who was a borderline alcoholic (he's fine now).
Family struggles, drug addiction and problem children are not esoteric problems of policy, infrastructure, social justice or human rights. These are common issues in American families. You will lose voters, or at least turn off voters, by dragging someone's family through the mud. Imagine turning on the television and listening to a politician vilify someone's child when you have a child of your own suffering similar problems.  Maybe it's not drug addiction.  Maybe it's gambling, sex addiction, stealing, aggression, violence, mental illness, etc. You listen to the nasty rhetoric and think "Wait a minute. Candidate X doesn't care about his opponent's family.  Why would he care about mine?"  You just lost a voter.
Sure, Americans love reality tv, family drama, on-air conflict.  But Americans also love a success story.  Someone who wins in the end.  Hunter Biden beat his addiction and became a better person.  It's inspirational. People like that. That's why it didn't work.

Here's the difference:

Hunter Biden, by all appearances, is a decent human being who fell down the rabbit hole. He could be any one of us given enough bad days, or poor choices.

Whereas Trump or his children are garbage humans no matter how many good days they may have or good choices they may make. They've literally been given everything and look what they made of it. There's only narcissism and no empathy behind them.

Trump famously doesn't touch alcohol, for completely understandable reasons. A normal person given that experience should be able to empathize with Biden. Even respect him for being able to save his son, when Trump lost his brother.

But not Trump. His narcissism runs too deep, because the only thing he pulled from his brother's death was "that could happen to me". Social Darwinism is an unforgiving dogma.

Lastly, Trump should be thanking his lucky stars for the American people's gentle and forgiving nature. Because usually very bad things happen to people who kill as many Americans as he has.
