The Washington Post proved President Joe Biden lied to the American public and gave him four Pinocchios, retroactively, for making the false claim that his son Hunter Biden never earned any money from Chinese business deals during a presidential debate in 2020.
Hunter had to come clean in court and a former business partner has been spilling the beans about how often Joe was on Hunter’s business calls. To say the walls are closing in on the Bidens is an understatement.
It is so bad that Gavin newsom is debating Ron DeSantis on Fox News like he is trying out for a new role.
The Washingon Post said:
Debate moderator Kristen Welker: “Vice President Biden, there have been questions about the work your son has done in China and for a Ukrainian energy company when you were vice president; in retrospect, was anything about those relationships inappropriate or unethical?”
Joe Biden: “Nothing was unethical. … My son has not made money in terms of this thing about, what are you talking about, China.
“I have not had … the only guy who made money from China is this guy [Donald Trump]. He’s the only one. Nobody else has made money from China.”

Donald Trump: “Once you became vice president he [Hunter Biden] made a fortune in Ukraine, in China, in Moscow and various other places.”
Biden: “That is not true.”

Joe Biden’s comment that Hunter Biden made no money in China was made in the course of a contentious debate in which he rebutted a number of false claims made by Trump.
Yet he made his statement in response to a direct question from the moderator.
It’s possible he purposely tailored his answer to just the period when he was vice president, but Biden has never been known for such parsing of language.
The president tends to be sloppier in his phrasing — which often gets him into trouble.
But the fact remains that Biden, during the debate, denied his son had made money in China.
In court last week, his son has said he earned hundreds of thousands of dollars from Chinese business deals.
