As much as the liberal media loves to pick and choose and spin the topics that make the most compelling arguments for Democrats to glom onto, there are some times when even the most egregious offenders need to stop and take notice of reality – even if it’s going to damage them mightily in the coming years.
This time around, the media meteor that can no longer be ignored is the Hunter Biden saga, with even liberally-loyal CNN now being forced to admit that the story could harm his father’s 2024 presidential aspirations.
CNN anchor Brian Stelter said Sunday on his show “Reliable Sources” that the ongoing federal investigation of President Joe Biden’s son Hunter is “not just a right-wing media story.”Advertisement - story continues below
Stelter added Hunter’s legal jeopardy could endanger his father’s chances in his 2024 re-election run.
Stelter said, “Maureen Dowd’s column in this morning’s New York Times basically says that Joe Biden should not run for re-election. This has been a narrative for months, and it is getting louder and louder, including from some Democratic lawmakers saying Biden should basically hang it up and say he is a lame duck and not run in 2024. So where do you come down on this as a former White House aide?”Trending:
Former press secretary for First Lady Jill Biden, Michael LaRosa, said, “I hope he runs. I know he’s going to run. He’s planning to run, as he said many times.”
Stelter asked, “Biden’s age makes it different.”Advertisement - story continues below
LaRosa said, “I don’t see why he wouldn’t run. I haven’t heard a reason why.”
Then came the truth-bomb.
Stelter said, “What about his son, what about Hunter? Hunter under federal investigation, charges could be coming at any time. This is not just a right-wing media story. This is a real problem for the Bidens. Could he decide not to run for re-election, given his son?”
LaRosa said, “Look, they make decisions as a family, and they will make that decision when it’s time.”
There are currently a number of important investigations ongoing that are looking at Hunter Biden’s vast international business dealings, and the sheer suggestion that his success has been the result of nepotism will likely be enough for many Americans to think twice about voting for Sleepy Joe in 2024.
