Despite the efforts of the social media giants to prevent the spread of Hunter Biden’s story, still, Joe Biden now has some serious questions that he have to answer.
A few days ago, the New York Post published a bombshell report raising serious questions about the Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden, and his son, Hunter Biden’s relationship with a Ukrainian company called Burisma.
The story which had a damning effect on his father’s presidential race started in a cache of emails and pictures that were allegedly retrieved from Hunter’s laptop that he left in a computer store in Delaware.
The Democrat nominee’s responses so far had done nothing to make this story false, and crucially there have been no denials from the Biden campaign that any of these emails are genuine.
One of the most explosive parts of the email that was revealed from Hunter Biden’s laptop was the one dated in 2015. The email was supposedly sent by a top adviser of Burisma, Vadym Pozharskyi. In the email, Pozharskyi thanked Hunter Biden for giving him the “opportunity” to meet his father, Joe Biden, and at that time, Joe Biden was still sitting as the Vice President of the United States.
The alleged email reads, “Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent some time together. It’s really an honor and pleasure.”
This email became significant because in the past few years, Joe Biden has been vehemently denying that he has ever spoken to his son about his overseas business dealings.
This allegation of meeting with the Ukrainian businessman was responded to by the Biden campaign by saying that they have reviewed the former Vice President’s official schedules, and there has been no meeting with the Pozharskyi that ever took place, contrary to the story posted by the New York Post.
Meanwhile, in another email to Hunter Biden, dated 2017, a reference is made to “the big guy” who would receive 10% of the equity from a deal with a Chinese equity firm.
Although Biden’s side stated that these emails were fake or that the “big guy” is not Joe Biden, were not sufficient to prove that Joe Biden was not involved in any of these dealings.
In fact, these statements did not debunk the theory of most Americans; that he has misled the American people into believing that he has no involvement with his son’s mysterious dealings with foreign firms.
However, what triggered Trump supporters was how the mainstream and social media acted afterward.
Hours after the New York Post article appeared online, Facebook announced that it would limit its spread on its social media platform.
Meanwhile, Twitter also summarily banned anyone from posting the story nor a link to the story, including the New York Post itself.
Joe Biden: “I have no response!”
I asked Joe Biden: What is your response to the NYPost story about your son, sir?
He called it a “smear campaign” and then went after me. “I know you’d ask it. I have no response, it’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.” pic.twitter.com/Eo6VD4TqxD

Meanwhile, Joe Biden lashed out to a reporter after he was finally asked about Hunter’s emails.
The CBS News reporter, Bo Erickson asked the Democrat nominee, “Mr. Biden, what is your response to the New York Post story about your son, sir?”
The Democratic presidential nominee, instead of answering the question, shouted and said, “I have no response!”
Joe Biden furiously said, “I knew you’d ask it. I have no response. It’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.”
The Biden campaign previously has given their side on the Hunter Biden’s email story by saying that the former Vice President “carried out official U.S. policy toward Ukraine and engaged in no wrongdoing.”
