Ron Johnson takes Hunter Biden-laptop-whataboutism to new heights

Ron Johnson, the Republican Senator from Wisconsin, has taken the art of whataboutism to new heights with his recent comments about Hunter Biden’s laptop. Johnson has been one of the most vocal supporters of the theory that Hunter Biden’s laptop contains damaging information about his father, President-elect Joe Biden.

In a recent interview with Fox News, Johnson was asked about the controversy surrounding the laptop and whether he believed it was a legitimate story. Johnson responded by saying that he didn’t know if the laptop story was true, but that it was “worthy of investigation.”

Johnson then went on to say that the media’s focus on the laptop was a form of whataboutism, and that they were ignoring the real story, which he claimed was the “corruption” of the Biden family. Johnson argued that the media was trying to distract from the real issue by focusing on the laptop.

This is a classic example of whataboutism, a tactic that has been used by politicians and pundits for decades. Whataboutism is the practice of deflecting criticism by pointing to the flaws of others. It’s a way of avoiding accountability by shifting the focus to someone else.

In this case, Johnson is using whataboutism to deflect attention away from the fact that there is no evidence of wrongdoing by Joe Biden or his family. Instead, he is trying to create a false equivalence between the unproven allegations against Hunter Biden and the well-documented corruption of the Trump family.

Johnson’s comments are particularly egregious because they come at a time when the country is facing a serious crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic is raging out of control, millions of Americans are out of work, and the country is deeply divided. Instead of focusing on these pressing issues, Johnson is trying to distract the public with baseless allegations about the Biden family.

It’s time for politicians like Ron Johnson to stop playing games and start focusing on the real issues facing our country. We need leaders who are willing to work together to find solutions to the problems we face, not politicians who are more interested in scoring political points. The American people deserve better than this.
