The walls are closing in on Democrat nominee Joe Biden as new information concerning his family’s dealings with Ukraine and China are being exposed by the New York Post.
The mainstream media has dutifully ignored the bombshell revelations, but CBS News reporter Bo Erickson finally ventured to question Biden about the issue directly — and it didn’t go well for anyone involved.
Erikson approached Biden on Friday and asked him: “Mr. Biden, what is your response to the New York Post story about your son, sir?”
Instead of calmly denying the allegations within the report, Biden lashed out at Erickson himself, accusing him of perpetuating a “smear campaign.”
“I know you’d ask it,” Biden fired back. “I have no response, it’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.”

It’s now been several days since the Post released information found on a laptop allegedly abandoned by Hunter Biden at a repair shop, and Biden has yet to formally address or deny serious accusations of misconduct — and the mainstream media is pretending it doesn’t exist.
Democrat operative George Stephanopolous, who hosted Thursday’s town hall event with Biden, made sure that no questions regarding the report were asked, and other mainstream media figures have kept coverage of the issue at a minimum.
Though the allegations against the Biden family are disturbing to begin with, Joe Biden’s response to even the most surface-level inquiry about the shocking revelations and the media’s active suppression of the report are even more concerning.
