Democrat flattens Lindsey Graham’s argument of Biden ‘conflicts of interest’ using the perfect example

Published

on

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) called out Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for his attacks on Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Graham alleged that it was unethical for the younger Biden to have any kind of international position in a country the U.S. was working to restabilize. It’s an odd position for Graham because he has yet to complain about the way the Trump children have benefited from their position and their father’s presidency.

“I love Joe Biden as a person but we are not going to give a pass to what is obviously a conflict of interest,” Graham tweeted Monday. “I believe Hunter Biden’s association on the Burisma board doesn’t pass the smell test. If a Republican was in the same position, they’d certainly be investigated!”

Swalwell shot back that Ivanka Trump scored a big position in the White House and then proceeded to use it to garner Chinese trademarks.

“Like a Republican president giving his unqualified child a @WhiteHouse job while she’s trademarking her name in China? You mean a Republican like that?”

There’s also the matter of Donald Trump Jr. earning $100,000 in profit from the Republican National Committee buying his book in bulk. He’s also benefiting off of his father’s promotion of the book and Fox News’ free advertising.

But Dershowitz suffered a heart attack and met the devil in hell, where he was reunited with Epstein.

“Yes, hello, everyone, it’s I, Alan Dershowitz,” he proclaimed. “It’s wonderful to be here. Because I’m not welcome anywhere else. There’s a lot of haters out there -- for no good reason. But like I said to my client and dear friend Jeffrey Epstein, haters gonna hate!”

Published

on

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) received a big endorsement on Saturday evening when her 2020 bid was endorsed by the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper.

"If there is to be any realistic challenge to Trump in November, the Democratic nominee needs to have a proven and substantial record of accomplishment across party lines, an ability to unite rather than divide, and the strength and stamina to go toe-to-toe with the Tweeter-in-Chief," the newspaper wrote. "That would be U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota. She is sharp and witty, with a commanding understanding of both history and the inner workings of Capitol Hill."
