Joe Biden has yet to answer a single question about a report that emails on his son’s alleged laptop appear to show that as vice president Biden met an executive at Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company where Hunter Biden served on the board.

In one email from April 2014 that details the envisioned negotiation between the senior Biden and Burisma, Hunter Biden seemingly refers to his father as “my guy.” Elsewhere, he describes the distribution of the payouts to his partners from the deal, noting one payout earmarked for his “guy.”
There is more than enough there to arouse the curiosity of any honest journalist, but “honest” journalists are a dying breed. The media are so in the pocket of the Democratic Party that they wouldn’t dare ruin their candidate’s chances of victory over the much-despised Donald Trump.
So when Biden took a a “rare break” from campaigning while stumping in Durham, N.C., reporters seized the opportunity to ask the kinds of probing questions American voters deserve to have answers to. Questions like “Mr. Biden, what flavor did you get?” The reference was to the milkshake the former vice president had just acquired at an ice cream stand. Have a look:

The reaction on social media was pretty much what you would expect.
So it’s no longer an internet joke, it is reality. In the middle of a scandal, during a race to become the most powerful leader in the works, he is asked what kind of ice cream he likes. This media is a joke.
