National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby popped into Wednesday’s White House press briefing —and one reporter’s question shocked him into silence.
New York Post reporter Steven Nelson asked Kirby about the t 53% of Americans, including approximately one fourth of Democrats, who believe that Biden was involved in “an illegal influence peddling scheme” with his son Hunter Biden.
“So, what do you say to the majority of Americans who believe that the president is himself corrupt?” Nelson asked.
“Wow,” Kirby said, shaking his head. Someone can be heard saying “Jesus!” in the background.
“The president has spoken to this and there’s nothing to these claims. And as for the whistleblower issue that you talked about and in the document — I believe the FBI has spoken to that, and you’re going to have to go to them on that,” Kirby finally said.

Conservative radio host Buck Sexton shared a “better question” on Twitter.
“Better question: what did the Chinese communist party think they were getting in return for funneling millions of dollars to Hunter Biden?”
