Gov. CAUGHT – Dodging Questions About Biden

On June 9, Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer lost connection with CNN “State of the Union” host Dana Bash while discussing Hunter Biden.

As Whitmer criticized former President Donald Trump, calling him a “convicted felon,” Bash attempted to shift the conversation to Hunter Biden’s gun trial. Bash pointed out that Hunter Biden is facing three felony charges related to his 2018 purchase of a Colt revolver while he was under the influence of illegal drugs. Just as Bash was about to delve deeper, Whitmer interrupted, asking, “Dana, are you there?” Bash responded, “Can you hear me?” However, it soon became clear that Whitmer could not hear her, prompting the show to cut to a “very quick commercial break” to fix the connection issue.

This sudden technical glitch sparked speculation among viewers. Some noticed that Whitmer glanced off-camera to the right just before questioning if Bash was still there. She repeated this action a second time before Bash paused the interview for the commercial break.

After the connection was restored, Bash resumed her questioning about Hunter Biden’s trial. Whitmer responded, “I don’t know how to weigh in on that.” She expressed her satisfaction that President Joe Biden had “confidence in the judicial system.” Whitmer contrasted Biden, who she described as someone who “respects the rule of law” and “wants to shore up this democracy,” with Trump, whom she labeled a “convicted felon” out to “go after his enemies.”

The timing of the technical glitch and Whitmer’s apparent unease on the topic of Hunter Biden have raised eyebrows. In an age where political spin is ubiquitous, the incident has fueled skepticism about whether the connection issue was genuine or a convenient dodge.

Since May, when Trump was found guilty on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records, Democrats have been quick to label him a “convicted felon.” Now, with Hunter Biden found guilty of three felony charges related to his 2018 gun purchase while addicted to cocaine, the tables are turning. The contrast between how these two cases are being handled and discussed in the media is stark and telling.

The Whitmer-Bash interview highlights a broader issue: the selective attention and double standards often applied by the media and politicians. While Democrats are eager to trumpet Trump’s legal woes, they seem far less comfortable addressing Hunter Biden’s transgressions with the same fervor.

As we move closer to the 2024 election, these instances of selective scrutiny and narrative control will only intensify. The American public deserves transparency and consistency from both their leaders and the media. It’s critical to hold all individuals accountable, regardless of their political affiliation, to maintain the integrity of our judicial and political systems.
