Joe Biden took questions from reporters on Wednesday for the first time since Tucker Carlson’s interview with 토니 보불 린스키, a former business associate of Hunter Biden who said the Biden family dismissed concerns that the Democratic nominee’s alleged ties to his son’s business deals could put a presidential campaign at risk.
But the media members on hand didn’t bother to ask about it.
Biden briefly faced reporters after voting in Wilmington, 의. 이하 24 hours after Bobulinski, 미국에서 은퇴 한 중위. 해군, raised concerns in 2017 전 부통령의 형인 짐 바이든에게, Joe Biden이 중국 에너지 회사와의 합작 투자 가능성에 대한 주장에 대해.
Reporters ignored the bombshell allegations, instead asking the Democratic presidential nominee about ongoing looting and unrest in Philadelphia and the Affordable Care Act before he hurried off into a waiting black SUV.
“What we saw there was another failure by the news media to ask Joe Biden about Hunter Biden and whether or not he will admit that he lied to the American people about his son’s foreign business dealings,” Trump 2020 campaign spokesperson Erin Perrine said on “Outnumbered Overtime.”
“This is a story the media refuses to cover, even when they have the candidate there, taking questions, which he so rarely does,? Perrine added.
“‘Would you answer the question?’ They didn’t ask that… and that should worry the American people.”
There has been a near blackout of coverage of Bobulinski’s shocking claims.
Bobulinski’s comments to Carlson were completely ignored by CNN and MSNBC through noon ET, 대충 16 hours after the start of the damning interview.
The New York Times and Washington Post didn’t cover the allegations in Wednesday’s paper, either.
Reporters were also criticized on Monday for their choice of questions when Biden was available. 트럼프 대통령 has repeatedly mocked the media for asking the former vice president what flavor he got during a recent visit to an ice cream parlor instead of asking any questions about the growing Hunter Biden controversy.
지난 달, reporters were similarly blasted for questions that they asked at a lengthier press conference, which offered very little grilling of Biden.
