Donald Trump Jr. lectured Joe Biden about conflicts of interest. It didnt go well – AlterNet

without comments

Apparently, Donald Trump Jr. has the self-awareness of a sea pineapples sphincter. (Do sea pineapples have sphincters? Ill just say they do, because its 2019, and you can say whatever you want now, apparently. Go ahead, fake news. Fact-check me. I dare you.)

So the walking, talking conflict of interest whose father has spent the past three years turning the presidency into a carnival ring-toss game is super concerned about Joe Bidens ethics:

Why didnt @JoeBiden recuse himself from dealing with Ukraine?

His son was on the board of a Ukrainian energy company that had been investigated by the prosecutor who Joe pushed to be fired.

At the VERY LEAST, theres the appearance of impropriety. A clear conflict of interest.

Are all the Trumps genetically engineered to lack self-awareness?

Junior, didnt your dear sister Ivanka receive dozens of trademarks from China when serving in the Trump administration? How much are those worth? Just curious

Why are foreign governments renting rooms at Trump properties and leaving them empty?

Why are you taking a $50,000 speaking fee for one speech at UofF, Jr?I mean, even Hunter Biden only made $50,000 for a months worth of work.

So your rate is much higher. We get it.

And on and on and on and on and on into infinity.

I mean, the stink of corruption from the Trump administration and Trump Orgwill outlast the heat death of the universe, but lets all look at Joe Bidens son, okay?

Enjoy the impeachment inquiry, Jr. Its sure to be entertainingfor most of us, anyway.

From unflinching coverage of white nationalism, to spotlighting the overlooked struggles of the working poor, AlterNet continues to speak truth to power. As newspapers close, America needs voices like AlterNets to be sure no one is forgotten.

We need your support to keep producing quality journalism. As Silicon Valley absorbs more and more advertising dollars, ads dont pay what they used to.
