Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, recently sat down for an interview with CBS News, part of which aired on Friday morning, where he admitted that a laptop that is at the center of a scandal involving shady business deals between his family and companies in China and elsewhere, might actually be his.
And he also took the opportunity to try and resurrect a long debunked conspiracy theory that says Russian spies stole the laptop from him and orchestrated events so that its contents would be released to the public.
CBS NEWS: Was that your laptop?
HUNTER BIDEN: For real, I don’t know.
CBS NEWS: I know. But you know that’s-

CBS NEWS: Okay, you don’t know, yes or now, if the laptop was yours.
HUNTER BIDEN: I don’t have any idea. I have no idea whether–
CBS NEWS: So, could have been yours?
HUNTER BIDEN: Of course, certainly. There could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me. It could be that I was hacked. It could be that was the– that it was Russian intelligence. It could be that it was stolen from me.

Obviously, President Joe Biden did not work very hard about instilling honesty, integrity, and other great character traits into his son, which is why he continues to run afoul of trouble.
Personal responsibility is just not a character trait that Democrats naturally hold to. There is currently no evidence to support the idea that Russians stole his laptop and rummaged through it to find things they could pin on Biden so he would lose the election.
It’s time to let it go and for Hunter to take some initiative in getting himself put back together.
