Republicans have been obsessed with Hunter Biden. They have been obsessed since 2019 when Donald Trump’s Attorney General, Bill Barr, had a Republican Trump appointed US Attorney in the state of Delaware investigate him.

When Joe Biden took office, he didn’t remove the attorney or meddle in the investigation in any way. He let the investigation run its course.

And now it has run its course.

The result from that investigation is that Hunter Biden has to pay some back taxes and has to keep his nose clean, both literally and figuratively, or face an illegal weapons charge.

Hardly the result Republicans were looking for, but, as they say, it is what it is.

But that isn’t good enough for Republicans. They wanted Hunter Biden’s head on a platter. But, as the old saying goes, “there is no there there.”

When Chuck Todd interviewed Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar on Meet The Press this weekend, Todd asked the Senator about the threat of using Hunter Biden as a campaign weapon against Joe Biden in the 2024 election.

Klobuchar didn’t mince words and put that idea in the trash can, where she feels it belongs.

“Do you think it was appropriate for Hunter Biden to be at the same event as the attorney general, Merrick Garland, was in the same week he accepted a plea deal?” Todd asked.

“You know, I think, as the president explains, that’s his son,” Klobuchar replied. “That decision was made by an independent prosecutor who is a Trump-appointed U.S. attorney who had ten years of experience, well respected. Philadelphia Inquirer reported that he was a registered Republican. He looked at the facts and evidence and made that decision.”

Todd then directly asked her about the idea of the GOP using Hunter Biden in the campaign.

“Good luck because the president is going to be able to run on the strength of his work and bring 13 million jobs back to America in researching, manufacturing in our country, and in moving forward,” she explained.

Todd asked Klobuchar about “perceptions” and if she wished those were different. The Minnesota Senator explained to Todd the difference between perceptions and reality.

“You always wish there were different perceptions, but that’s not reality,” Klobuchar asserted. “Reality is whether or not someone is going to be able to get their insulin, and the president has made changes. Reality is whether someone has a job. Reality is when they can go visit their grandma again in an assisted living.”

“Those are people’s realities,” she added. “Not who is sitting where at a state dinner.”
