Former Vice President Joe Biden was not asked one question in a Thursday night town hall about a highly publicized news story involving his son Hunter’s business dealings in Ukraine.
Biden appeared on ABC for a town hall event Thursday and was not asked by moderator George Stephanopolous or a questioner from the audience about a blockbuster report showing emails from Hunter Biden coordinating a meeting between his father and a Ukrainian oil company where Hunter was a board member. The emails cast doubt on Joe Biden’s prior claims that he has never discussed Hunter’s overseas business dealings with his son.
Some on social media quickly began to point out, following the conclusion of the town hall, that no questions had been asked about the subject.
“FACT: President Trump would have fielded 20 minutes of questions from Savannah Guthrie if Don Jr. had been accused of the things Hunter Biden has multiple reports accusing him of,” the conservative grassroots organization For America tweeted. “Joe Biden took none.”
“There was not a single mention of the New York Post’s hard-hitting story on Hunter Biden’s emails during Joe Biden’s town hall,” Breitbart News reporter Kyle Morris tweeted. “What the hell is going on over at ABC News? Have they thrown out what little journalistic integrity they had left?”
“No questions for Joe Biden in this town hall about the Hunter Biden emails,” The Daily Caller’s Greg price tweeted.
The news story was amplified after Big Tech giants Twitter and Facebook openly began suppressing the story’s reach and locking prominent accounts, including those belonging to the Trump administration, for posting the story.
