• Pole smoker Stephen Colbert's Joe Biden interview a real joke

    Late Show host Stephen Colbert actually managed to set a new
    record for wet media kisses delivered to Joe Biden in his long
    sit-down with the prez-elect: He didnt just offer a free pass
    on the federal investigation of Hunter Biden, he portrayed
    questions on the issue as victimizing the Biden family.

    Yes, Colbert is a late-night talk-show host, not a journalist.
    But remember how much flak The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon
    got for being too nice in his September 2016 interview of then-
    GOP-nominee Donald Trump?

    Granted a lot of face time with Biden, the CBS host had a chance
    to break news and do the public a service by asking real
    questions of the next commander-in-chief.

    But this is how Colbert brought up the Hunter Biden scandal:
    You know that the people who want to make hay here in
    Washington are going to try to use your adult son as a cudgel
    against you. How do you feel about that and what do you have to
    say to those people?

    Im not concerned about any accusations that have been made
    against him. Its used to get to me, Biden responded. And hes
    a grown man. He is the smartest man I know, I mean, in pure
    intellectual capacity. And as long as hes good, were good.

    Colbert kept on the topic to try to make Biden look even more
    the victim.

    As a father, I understand that and I admire that. But in terms
    of your job as president, can you reach across the aisle to
    people who will be using this as an attack on you when it is
    such a personal attack because its about family?

    If it benefits the country, yes. I really mean it, Biden said,
    to which the fawning Colbert responded, Youre a better man
    than I. Im not sure if I could do that.

    In other words, Colbert spent his valuable time with Biden
    tossing softballs the equivalent of why do you think your
    critics beat their wives?

    What might he have pushed on? Well, Biden has said he never
    discussed Hunters business dealings with him; e-mails The Post
    recovered from Hunters laptop suggest thats not true. In one e-
    mail, an executive from Burisma, the Ukrainian company on whose
    board Hunter sat, offers thanks for an introduction to the then-
    vice president. Another outlined an agreement with a Chinese
    company, with 10 percent to be held by H for the big guy?

    How about asking Joe if hes the big guy?

    In fact, not one reporter has posed that question to the next
    president. Will the real journalists ever do any better than
    the late-night jokester?

    Nor does Hannity. He regularly says as much.
