This week’s edition of “Fox News Sunday” was pay-per-view-quality stuff, with Fox contributor Juan Williams woefully attempting to defend Joe and Hunter Biden and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich patiently waiting to obliterate Williams and his foolishness.
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.
Williams then went straight to whataboutism, which, other than hypocrisy, is the bane of mankind. (OK, maybe that’s a bit hyperbolic, but I detest 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.
