Ridgewood NJ, nearly two-thirds of voters say the story of Hunter Biden’s lost laptop is important and believe President Joe Biden was probably involved in his son’s foreign business deals.
“The fault lies not with the mob, who demands nonsense, but with those who do not know how to produce anything else”
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 66% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the story about Hunter Biden’s laptop containing emails about his business dealings is important, including 48% who think the story is Very Important. Thirty-one percent (31%) don’t believe the story is important, including 15% who say it’s Not At All important. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
HBO Real Time host Bill Maher echoed most voters thoughts and accused the media on Friday of burying the 2020 story of Hunter Biden’s laptop because “it wasn’t part of their narrative” and because the story broke in the New York Post.
Maher also concluded by declaring that the lack of initial coverage is why Americans do not trust the media:
“Now, what I said at the beginning, how it came to them? It came to them through Rudy Giuliani and Steve Bannon. So, yes, of course, when Rudy Giuliani says “I’ve got some evidence” you take that with a giant thing of salt, but not two years. It didn’t take two years. It looks like the left-wing media just buried the story because it wasn’t part of their narrative and that’s why people don’t trust the media.”
Maher also sarcastically mocked the idea that any business would hire Hunter Biden on his merits:
“And if anyone should not leave his computer with other people it would be Hunter Biden. Just for the personal stuff. But it also had stuff about how you know this — come on, he’s a ne’er-do-well, I’m sorry Hunter Biden, but you are and, you know, you made a living being a ne’er-do-well who was taking money just because you were the vice president’s son and you had influence, he got, I think, four point, yes, eight million dollars from Chinese energy companies to sit on the board and consult. Yeah, that was his passion in life, energy exploration. Hooker exploration was his passion. “
