The Republican obsession with President Biden’s son Hunter borders on the pathological. They delight in mocking his past struggles with substance abuse, displaying a disgusting capability for cruelty in the process, and seem to think that every little news story about him is somehow politically relevant.
The irony is that unlike Donald Trump’s odious offspring, Hunter is not embedded in his father’s administration. He’s not jet-setting around the world like Don Jr. or Ivanka playing the part of a diplomat. The man deserves to be left alone but since President Biden’s incredible successes so far preclude right-wingers from launching any kind of substantive attacks on his White House they’re forced instead to attack his son over irrelevant issues.
Today, Donald Trump Jr. once again went after Hunter Biden on Twitter. Presumably reacting to the tabloid coverage of a newly leaked video showing Hunter discussing a stolen laptop and videos of himself having sex, Don Jr. joked that the “Russian Pee Tape is probably real it just happens to be Hunter’s.”
The former president’s habitually unfunny son was referring to prevalent rumors that a video exists of his father engaged in urine-related sexual activities with prostitutes. Some speculate that the tape does in fact exist and has been wielded by the Russian government as a means of blackmailing Donald Trump. But no such “pee” allegations exist against Hunter Biden, so Don Jr.’s joke doesn’t totally make sense. All he really accomplished with his tweet was reminding the world about the allegations against his father.
More to the point, why is he so obsessed with Hunter’s sex life?
Guys, the Russian Pee Tape is probably real, it just happens to be Hunter’s.

Twitter users were quick to use the asinine tweet as an excuse to unleash a barrage of mockery and criticisms on Donald Trump Jr. Some users even insisted that the infamous Trump “pee tape” does exist — proving that Jr. would have just been better off not bringing up one of the most embarrassing rumors about his father in the first place.
sir, remember the time you lost the election and you've been running around like a butt-hurt gimbus ever since?

You keep talking about it, we’ll still think it’s your dad’s, nice try at obfuscation though.

Yep… totally normal to bring up a watersports tape your dad was allegedly part of. Totally normal.

Your father was ALWAYS into some weird things, Junie. The situations I've caught him in would make even you blush!
