    Remember that time when Hunter Biden was president?

    No? Well, surely he works in the current government in some capacity!

    No?

    It's not scandalous unless MSM calls it scandalous.

    Well, they can frame it like Don just did, and then everyone would magically "think" the same thing about it.

    "Does the President condemn his son's racist language, whoremongering, and drug use??"

    .... and other questions the American news media won't be asking. Film at 11.

    "Rich white failson says the N-word", more shocking news such as "The Iraq war was just for oil" and "water is wet" at 8

    1. Hunter Biden is not the president of the United States.
    2. These comments, if they happened, are inexcusable. I'm unaware of any Democrats, not even the current president of the United States, excusing the comments. However, bringing up this story as an act of whataboutism in response to the former president's racism would be a form of excusing racism.
    3. We don't know for sure if any of these alleged comments actually happened. They allegedly came from this "Hunter laptop," which is a story (as far as I'm aware) that hasn't been independently corroborated and has at least some ties to a Russian election disinformation campaign involving fake texts and emails.

    Refer to the opening OP and its comparison to how MSM reported on Trump's children. Nobody said it was about your racism either.

    The children of the former president willfully waded into the political discourse, and we have evidence of criminal behavior on their part related directly to their father and his presidency. It isn't comparable.

    Well, you are comparing it and finding the "differences" that set them apart. Not that I agree or see your "facts" as tangibly functional.

    If Hunter was Trump's son, the MSM would be reporting on everything in a different light and you would be making the alternative argument.

    Coming into this thread to defend MSM or shield Biden from his responsibility to his son only serves confirmation bias, no matter what side of the argument you are on.

    The MSM let Tiffany Trump off the hook for mostly everything during Trump's presidency because she had the good sense to (mostly) stay out of the picture.

    I've got no idea what you're on about now. I meant that Tiffany kept her distance from the administration and was left alone by the media. Whether or not there was dirt to find is anyone's guess.

    All I'm going to say is that those texts were likely made while Hunter Biden was still using (which the American people knew about). Assuming all of that is true, that doesn't excuse him from the language he used, and he needs to issue an apology for it. It still doesn't have anything to do with Joe Biden, who was elected despite the fact that the American people knew his son had a 'colorful' past and the fact that his son isn't running the country. So let me say this s-l-o-w-l-y.

    Joe Biden is not responsible for the text, speech, and actions for his 51 year old son. Joe Biden will not disown his or distance himself from Hunter because of the deaths of his other children, Beau and Naomi. This is not a cause of concern for the country. The only people making a big deal out of it are stupid Trumpists who have literally nothing better to do.

    Regardless of what kind of whataboutism it is, I don't really care about whataboutism.

    See, the great thing about a president that doesn't appoint all his family members to positions of power within government is that I don't have to give a fuck about anything they do or say in their private lives. It's completely inconsequential. If Hunter wants to run around yelling the n-word until he gets put in his place, that's his problem. Yet another non-story from the Daily Mail.
