Laura Ingraham accuses Biden of corrupt family business and the irony is off the charts
Laura Ingraham took the irony to the extreme Thursday when she accused President Joe Biden of putting family businesses before government, according to critics on social media. (Check out the video below.)
The Fox News host presented a segment about a special counsel assigned to investigate Biden’s stash of classified documents at home and a former office when he was vice president. She accused the Justice Department of wanting to indict Trump over his hoarding of top-secret documents in Mar-a-Lago but not being vigorous in its pursuit of justice with Biden. (Biden’s team reported his relatively small number of documents while Trump blocked government attempts to salvage his treasure trove from an FBI search.)
“If only we had a president who cared more about what’s good for the country and less about how he protects his family’s corrupt business interests,” Ingraham said of Biden.
People on Twitter thought Ingraham was “on point” describing former President Donald Trump. Trump’s family business was recently found guilty of fraud and other financial crimes in a 15-year scam that lined the pockets of executives to evade income taxes.
Trump has not been charged personally, but is named along with his three eldest children in a $250 million lawsuit brought by the New York Attorney General alleging that the Trumps and Trump Organization intentionally overvalued assets for lenders in order to obtain better credit terms and get lower insurance premiums.
Ingraham seemed to have missed that. But Twitter didn’t forget.
