President Trump didn’t mince words today when he called a reporter a criminal for not reporting on Joe Biden’s influence selling scandal involving his son:

The reporter asks Trump “Your campaign strategy seems to be to call Biden a criminal. Why is that?”
Trump responds with fire: “He is a criminal. He’s a criminal. He got caught. Read his laptop. And you know who’s a criminal? You’re a criminal for not reporting it. You are a criminal for not reporting it.”
The reporter says something unintelligible back, but Trump continues saying “Let me tell you something. Joe Biden is a criminal and he’s been a criminal for a long time. And you’re a criminal, and the media, for not reporting it.”
That’s tough language, but I can’t really disagree with Trump on this at all. Biden admitted this himself over two years ago and the media has done hardly any reporting on it. If it were Trump and Don Jr involved in this kind of scandal, the media would have been dunking on this a long time ago. But all we’ve heard from them is crickets.
And they knew about it too, and just how ‘strange’ it was that Biden’s son was hired by Burisma with no oil and gas experience whatsoever. Here’s a rare report on this from back in mid 2019 by ABC News:
ABC News did that report and then forgot about it. And last week when blockbuster emails came out directly linking Joe Biden to this scandal, neither ABC News, nor any of the other mainstream media outlets gave a crap.
So when Trump calls these reporters criminals over ignoring this blockbuster story, it doesn’t bother me at all.
