Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, May 14, 2019

Why is Joe Biden so warm toward China? Last week, Biden raised eyebrows when he shrugged off concerns over the China threat. "Come on, man," Biden said. "I mean, you know, they're not bad folks, folks. But guess what, they're not competition for us." Perhaps Biden's insouciant attitude toward the Chinese government has to do with the fact that his family does not consider them competitors but business partners. In 2013, then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden flew aboard Air Force Two to China. Less than two weeks later, Hunter Biden's firm inked a $1 billion private equity deal with a subsidiary of the Chinese government's Bank of China. The deal was later expanded to $1.5 billion. In short, the Chinese government funded a business that it co-owned along with the son of a sitting vice president.

Biden says the wet spot on the bed he and China share smells like eggrolls.

I honestly don't get the entire Joe Biden thing. He's not a Progressive, never has been. He's been involved in laws to incarcerate millions of poeple and prevent the discharge of student loans in bankruptcy. We have great candidates, he's not one of them.

He's the only candidate that has a snowballs' chance in hell of getting elected. You'll hold your nose and get in line just like the rest of your buddies, and Vote Joe as instructed.

"He's the only candidate that has a snowballs' chance in hell of getting elected."

The election is still a long ways away so we don't need to get onboard with Republican-like today, America is going to want what we want...like Medicare for all whether reactionaries like you like it or not. Of course though Trump will probably bankrupt the nation before we get to the election. Just what we need now....an Iran invasion following a massive tax cut and then Republicans telling us we are in a fiscal emergency....that they created.....on purpose.

Actually he is the candidate that the GOP wants to run.

This is the most ignorant and reckless attitude toward China since Clinton betrayed a campaign promise and gave them MFN status and WTO membership. We've paid a huge price for that idiocy and continue to do so.

The MSM is taking China's side in the tariff war while cheering and hoping for a Trump defeat.

Meanwhile, China steals our data, technology, trade secrets, military and enterprise info.

Tells you everything you need to know about the elite democrats and their media mouthpiece propaganda operation.

Spork is right.

You'll put on a teddy and spritz the tarantula with Eau de toilette when Biden comes-a-callin'

The MSM isn't taking China's side. They're taking the side of American consumers, farmers and businesses. You know, the ones who actually have to suffer over this.
