Democrats have not figured out how to solve their Hunter Biden problem.
Biden is a never-ending source of scandal that forces the party into verbal contortions to try and defend his misdeeds.
And now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just admitted something embarrassing about Hunter Biden.
The House Oversight Committee held a hearing about Big Tech censoring the New York Post’s Hunter Biden laptop story.
Republicans planned this as the first in the series of hearings on Joe Biden’s involvement in the foreign business deals that netted Hunter Biden millions of dollars.
Some of those deals involved Communist China leading to questions about the Biden family corruption selling out America to her number-one enemy.
Democrats named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as their number-two member on the committee as part of a new defense strategy.
Putting Ocasio-Cortez in such a high-profile position meant that Democrats would not defend Hunter Biden or Joe Biden on the merits, but instead try to discredit the hearing’s revelations by turning the proceedings into a circus.
That’s exactly what happened in the hearing as Ocasio-Cortez turned in a stage performance ranting and raving like a lunatic about how the committee should be debating Democrat priorities like abortion, race-based preferences and socialized medicine.
But in her answer Ocasio-Cortez called the Hunter Biden laptop story “half fake.”

These two words — “half fake” — represented a major concession on how the Democrat Party treated the laptop scandal.
During the 2020 election the Joe Biden campaign embraced the lie invented by Deep State allies like former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper that the emails on the Hunter Biden laptop were Russian disinformation.

At the final 2020 presidential debate Biden lied to the country in claiming the laptop was Russian disinformation.
Observers across the political spectrum mocked Ocasio-Cortez for being the first Democrat to admit the laptop was at least half real.
“Which half is fake? Oh, that’s right, the Russian interference half,” conservative pundit Ben Domenech posted on social media.
“Even Twitter says it was wrong to censor reporting about Joe Biden weeks before the 2020 election and was wrong to lock the account of the nation’s oldest newspaper for its *true* reporting. AOC doesn’t just think this is a waste of time but believes the censorship was noble,” independent journalist Glenn Greenwald wrote on Twitter.
