Joe Biden is desperate to save his failing Presidential campaign.
But he is unwilling to do the one thing that could clear his name.
Joe Biden just got caught in this scandal he can’t possible escape from.
Joe Biden was hoping that that the media would keep quiet about how he used U.S. aid as leverage so that the Ukrainian government would fire the prosecutor who was investigating his son.
He had the advantage of being a Democrat and he knew that mainstream media would do their best to protect him.
If any Republican had been caught boasting in similar circumstances, their career would have been over.
But Democrats know that they can count on the media to cover for them.
CNN ran the headline “There’s a good reason why Trump is intent on smearing Biden”.
In the article, they claim that voters “should not get sucked into arguments over Biden’s guilt or innocence. There is no evidence of wrongdoing by either Joe or Hunter Biden.”
And that why there is a debate on the subject of “Trump’s manipulation of the truth.”
CNN is using the same denial and gaslighting tactics that abusers use to try and confuse their victims.
But for all that the media is trying to hide about Joe Biden’s crimes, they aren’t able to undo the damage that has been caused by the publicity the Democratic impeachment of Trump has caused.
They know that Joe Biden was their best candidate against Trump. Warren and Sanders are radicals who will have trouble winning over independent voters.
Joe Biden has one simple means of trying to win back support.
He could use his son, who has numerous other stains on his character, as a scapegoat and try to claim that he had absolutely no knowledge of the fact that his son was using his connections with him for financial gain.
But either because he knows that his connection to the scandal is too deep or because he really just wants to retire rather than be President, Biden has failed to come up with any meaningful strategies to convince voters that he lost that he is the best Democratic candidate.
He seems to hope that if he just ignores the problem and denies that it is a problem, it will go away.
According to The Daily Caller, the campaign manager that was interviewing on CNN tried to make it appear as if it was obvious that Joe Biden did nothing wrong.
“Does former VP Biden now have any regret that he didn’t tell Hunter Biden, ‘You know what, I just don’t need the headache, don’t work there’?” asked CNN’s Alisyn Camerota.
“No,” responded deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield. “Because he didn’t do anything wrong.”
She added that asking the question is exactly what Trump would want.
“The White House said in 2014 that there was no issue with Hunter having that job,” Bedingfield said. “This is the playbook he ran in 2016 — we’re not going to let him do it this time. We are taking on directly any suggestion that there was anything improper here. There was not.”
She went on to say that what Americans really should be outraged by is the “manufactured dirt” that Trump is trying to smear on Biden.
But the attempts of the mainstream media to boost Joe Biden’s tottering campaign won’t work.
The American people are too smart for that and the doubts that they have about Joe Biden’s character won’t magically disappear.
Do you think that Joe Biden’s denial of his wrongdoing is hurting his campaign?
