The American people have many questions for the Democrat nominee for President of the United States.
But it’s become nearly impossible to get a straight (or any) answer from Joe Biden, when his campaign calls a media “lid” almost daily. This truly unprecedented situation is leading to people making some “tough calls” over which question the media should demand Biden answer — if they ever got the chance, that is.
That’s exactly what former Speaker Newt Gingrich asked his Twitter followers this morning:
If a reporter actually got to ask Joe Biden a question should they ask his position on packing the Supreme Court or his explanation of the Ukrainian Billionaire’s telegram to his son thanking him for access to the Vice President. Tough call!

“If a reporter actually got to ask Joe Biden a question should they ask his position on packing the Supreme Court or his explanation of the Ukrainian Billionaire’s telegram to his son thanking him for access to the Vice President. Tough call!”
And the post’s top comment, from three-time World Champion and former MLB pitcher Curt Shilling, asks another great question:
Why can't someone NOT corrupt in the DOJ ask both Hunter and his criminal father the latter?

In case you missed the biggest media story since the nothingburger of President Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president, here are just a few of the pieces from Wednesday about reporting by the New York Post on a newly-recovered hard drive from Hunter Biden’s computer yielding a cache of documents that allegedly connect former vice president Biden with Hunter’s shady dealing in Ukraine:
RedState’s Jennifer Van Laar also shared Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s statement late Wednesday, in a quote-tweet on a Twitter Safety missive referencing the NY Post piece:
“Our communication around our actions on the @nypost article was not great. And blocking URL sharing via tweet or DM with zero context as to why we’re blocking: unacceptable.”
Now, Newt poses an excellent question. (Though, it’s curious that he mentions a ‘telegram.’ You’ve got to assume the Speaker means the emails from the NY Post’s story.)
You could make one of those “which button” memes out of it. It really is a true tie, when few things are.
Anyone with common sense understands that court-packing is not the same thing as filling vacant judicial seats. And it would fundamentally change one-third of our system of government forever. Because, as we know, it wouldn’t stop with the Democrats. Politicians always have to one-up each other.
Like my colleague Bonchie wrote earlier this week about the NBA and Black Lives Matter, “[T]he genie is out of the bottle, and it’s unlikely it can be shoved back in.”
Back to the NY Post story. Gingrich (and we) might be getting answers sooner rather than later on that subject, if Rudy Giuliani has anything to do with it, as our Scott Hounsell wrote earlier this morning:
After the New York Post published a story on Hunter Biden’s dealings with Burisma today from information found on a hard drive that allegedly belonged to the former Vice President’s son, Rudy Giuliani took to YouTube to lay out the case for a new accusation:
That Joe Biden was receiving half of Hunter’s contracts.
Giuliani also suggests that he has additional information that he will be releasing in the coming days.
Scott added that we have to presume that info will come from the hard drive of the computer left at the Delaware computer repair shop.
The fact is that, after Twitter’s (and Facebook’s) shenanigans over the Hunter Biden story on Wednesday night, the future of our republic could very well depend on getting an answer from the vice president on both questions.
Here’s the same question for you, readers: what would you ask Joe Biden right now, if given the chance?
