Wealthy parents using their wealth and power to insure the success of their children regardless of how dense they may be.

    But since Republicans seem to want to bash Joe and Hunter Biden I thought we should do a little roll call check to see who realistically has a right to criticize nepotism from the Republican side of the isle...

    Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Daughter of Governor Mike Huckabee.
    Megan McCain, Daughter of John McCain
    Mitt Romney, Son of former Governor George Romney
    Ivanka Trump, Daughter of Assclown Donald Trump
    Donald Trump Jr, Son of Assclown Donald Trump
    Eric Trump, Son of Assclown Donald Trump
    Donald Trump son of Fred Trump.
    George W Bush, son of George H.W. Bush
    Jeb Bush, son of George H.W. Bush
    None of the above.
    If he had some expertise at all, instead of being a stoner, no one would probably be worried.

    It does. First we had a whistle blower complain which highlighted an allegedly serious crime being committed by this administration. Then Trump's own dumb ass released a transcript of the phone call which proves the allegation was true. Then Trump publicly broke the law again by asking for help from China and Australia.

    This on top of the numerous crimes uncovered during the Mueller Investigation serve as way more than enough justification for this inquiry. In fact, there was more than enough justification for it well over a year ago.

    Not really. When you yourself are insanely guilty of the exact thing you're criticizing someone else for it would be wise of you to keep your mouth shut. If nepotism and or using the power of office to secure better outcomes for ones children is a crime that disqualifies a candidate for public office then Donald Trump himself has been disqualified a thousand times over.

    Freedom of speech....

    Oh, that's right.

    It doesn't apply to the "wrong" people.

This is the exact opposite of what Joe Biden should have done if he wanted to protect his son from any type of corruption charges.

    What you have here is a video of Joe Biden bragging about how he forced Ukraine to do what was in the best interest of the American people as a whole in order to protect the investment that the west was making. AKA exactly what his job was at the time.

    This isn't about "nepotism" (you can look up what that means if you don't know).

    It's about selling influence.

    Why would Joe Biden's son get a high paying job on the board of a Ukranian gas company?

    a) he was the most qualified
    b) to gain political influence

    which one seems plausible?

    Freedom of speech does not mean the freedom to say whatever you want whenever you want without consequences. It means the freedom to say whatever you want whenever you want without consequences....FROM THE GOVERNMENT!!!

    If Trump and his supporters want to be ****ing morons and argue that Nepotism or using the power of your office to benefit a child is a crime that is their right, but the Voters of this country are going to look at them like they're a bunch of ****ing ass clowns for doing it because Donald Trump him self is so ****ing guilty of that exact crime it's ridiculous.

    Ivanka Trump, Jared Kuschner, Don Jr, Eric Trump... literally the only qualifications they have that got them their current jobs are that they're Donald Trump's children. Literally nothing else qualifies them.

    Freedom of speech is freedom of speech.

    The rest of your rant is ignored.

    Have a nice ultra-partisan day.
