Well, that seemed to have been the big attack from President Trump in the last presidential campaign debate ever (At least for this time around) and because I follow stuff, I know what Trump was talking about. Here is why it is meaningless.
- It does no good to inject an obscure tidbit, no matter how compelling, if the only people who understand the subject are slack jawed boobies who believe everything you say and wouldn’t know evidence if it hit them in the face.
- I don’t know who the wife of the mayor of Moscow is, but Trump seems to think (based on Rudy Giuliani via Russian intelligence, that she slipped millions of dollars to some member of the Biden family at some point for some reason we cannot discern.
- To be compelling at all, a scandal has to be so abysmally simple that even your most foolish backer can understand it. This is not the case with whatever it was about the laptop that has crept into President Trump’s flow of accusatory thought.
- Joe Biden is not a wealthy man.
Okay, that seems to take care of just about all the dirt Trump tried to smear during the debate. Very long story very short on the laptop, something about Hunter Biden’s laptop from someplace that ended up in the repair shop of a blind computer repair guy in Delaware who squeezed the hard drive until something popped out and landed in the pocket of either Rudy Giuliani or that scruffy bummy looking guy who used to work for Trump and now just sort of slinks around the outskirts. Oh yeah, Bannon.
The gist of the scuttlebutt of all this is that somehow, what came out of the laptop shows Hunter or some other Biden getting tons of money from someone for something, which has led our President for Now to think that Joe Biden is the most corrupt man on earth.
Maybe something like that can work on Netflix, but not here in the real life we all know and love. Trump wasted everyone’s time just to plant that “laptop” thought on the audience, which will be hearing lots more about it over the next few days, but probably not enough to make it make any sense at all.
What works for scandals are guys like Trump paying hush money to what he would probably view as “fabulous” looking women who had sexual relations with him. Go for a walk late at night on Times Square in New York to get an idea of where those kinds of girls sometimes hang out.
Oh, wait. That was 20 years ago.
See, scandals are just not easily created.
