A: Because he is a Democrat.

Gianno Caldwell asks a sensible question. "Why isn’t Hunter Biden being condemned for unacceptable use of the N-word?" Well, I condemn him, and you condemn him, and Caldwell obviously condemns him, and many others doubtlessly do. What he means is why is he not being vociferously condemned by the entire mainstream media establishment with the accompanying outrage that, you know, never seems feigned at all when they do it to Republicans?

As an African American, I don’t just take issue with this; I am repulsed by it. Why? Racism knows no party. Indeed, both parties are guilty of racism. But I must admit, when Republicans encounter someone who has said or done something racist, that person is usually punished and often expelled from the party — or, at the very least, there’s an attempt to strip them of power.

This has happened many times. Former Rep. Steve King, for example, was stripped of his committee assignments by House Republican leadership in Congress after it was reported that King said in an interview, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?”

I am glad that many people like Caldwell who are graced with common sense are also graced with fortitude. Because otherwise people calling out hypocrisy would have given up pointing out this double standard long ago, faster than you can say "Corp Pop was a bad dude."

Hunter Biden can use the N-word all he wants and never have to pay for it, whereas someone like Donald Trump who, according to the many who hate him, probably kicks puppies and probably drinks human blood, only has to probably have said it to be condemned for it without any evidence.

During his presidency, the media endlessly reported rumors that Donald Trump used the N-word while filming his hit TV show “The Apprentice” even though no proof of these comments existed. Meanwhile, the text messages from Hunter Biden are clear as day and have received little to no press coverage — media malpractice at its height.

Yes, it is malpractice, Mr. Caldwell, but it is also standard practice with the media. They are not interested in accuracy in reporting. They switch from outrage and histrionic demands for apologies to "see no evil, hear no evil" depending on which will further their agenda. Right now Hunter Biden is a sacred cow who could probably survive anything short of a child snuff flick surfacing involving him. The guy may as well have a "Blackmail me" sign taped to his back.
