In what can only be called one of the most shockingly stupid moves ever made in politics, the Joe Biden campaign actually sent a letter to every major network, demanding they stop booking his most harsh critic, Rudy Giuliani.
When you’re being accused of using your power and influence to get an enemy fired, turning around and using your power and influence to demand one of your critics be silenced is probably not the smartest move.
I know, it sounds too wild to be true, but it’s 100 percent accurate – the New York Times got their hands on the letter.
Biden’s campaign is freaking out over the Ukraine scandal, where Biden stands accused of strong-arming the governement of Ukraine into firing the prosecutor who was investigating Biden’s son and his company for a $3 million dollar fraud.
Biden even bragged about what he did on camera.
You can watch that video below.
The letter was reported by New York Times media reporter Michael Grynbaum in a tweet:
NEW: Team BIDEN just sent letter to every major TV news network, calling for RUDY to be kept off the airwaves. “He will knowingly and willingly lie,” letter says. pic.twitter.com/7oGQ4b3f4X

Key complaint in the letter:
We are writing today with grave concern that you continue to book Rudy Giuliani on your air to spread false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump. While you often fat check his statements in real time during your discussions, that is no longer enough. By giving him your air time, you are allowing him to introduce increasingly unhinged, unfounded and desperate lies into the national conversation.
We write to demand that in service to the fact, you no longer book Rudy Giuliani, a surrogate for Donald Trump who has demonstrated that he will knowingly and willingly lie in order to advance his own narrative.
Have you ever seen such a blatant and shameless coverup of a scandal, not to mention attempting to silence and censor an American citizens free speech?

Meanwhile, speaking of “lies,” Joe Biden’s entire campaign is built on a lie and fake news.
Biden has been spreading the “Charlottesville lie” since he first announced he was running for the White House.
Watch that video below:
This is 100 percent fake news. Tump did not call “Nazis” or white supremacists “very fine people.” It never happened. Yet, Biden and the lying media have spread this untruth for well over a year.
News anchors and pundits have repeated lies about Donald Trump and race so often that some of these narratives seem true, even to Americans who embrace the fruits of the president’s policies. The most pernicious and pervasive of these lies is the “Charlottesville Hoax,” the fake-news fabrication that he described the neo-Nazis who rallied in Charlottesville, Va., in August 2017 as “fine people.” [Real Clear Politics]
Below are the exact words from President Trump regarding Charlottesville:
“Excuse me, they didn’t put themselves down as neo-Nazis, and you had some very bad people in that group. But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides. You had people in that group – excuse me, excuse me, I saw the same pictures you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name.”
“I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and white nationalists because they should be condemned totally.”
From USA Today.
On Thursday, former Vice President Joe Biden announced his run for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. He came out of the gate hard, citing the tragic August 2017 clash at Emancipation Park in Charlottesville between right- and left-wing demonstrators that left three dead and 38 injured. “That’s when we heard the words from the president of the United States that stunned the world and shocked the conscience of this nation,” Biden intoned, that there were “some very fine people on both sides.” Biden said that Trump “assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it,” and that in this moment Biden concluded “we are in a battle for the soul of the nation.”
Donald Trump pushed back just as hard, saying he “answered perfectly” to questions about the Charlottesville incident. This is certain to set off yet another round of hyperbolic virtue-signaling as commentators rush to condemn the president for what one historian called providing “cover for racist violence.”
Taken out of context, the “fine people” quote does look troubling, but Trump’s critics never tell the whole truth.
So, my question is, should we call to censor Joe Biden? After all, he’s spreading blatant fake news. Should he be banned from any further media appearances?
Furthermore, what Rudy is saying about Biden and Ukraine is not fake news. Joe Biden told us, in his own words, exactly what he did in Ukraine. There are endless documents to back up Rudy’s claims. And finally, Biden won’t answer questions about Ukraine. Why?
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden declined to answer questions on the campaign trail this week about his son’s overseas business dealings in countries where the then-vice president was conducting diplomatic work, an issue his political opponents have already begun to wield against him as he wades into the 2020 presidential campaign.
More than once, after his father engaged in diplomacy on behalf of the United States in foreign countries, Hunter Biden conducted business in the same country. At two separate campaign stops on Monday, Biden avoided questions about his son while his staff blocked reporters from approaching the candidate. [ABC News]
So, instead of answering the hard-hitting questions for the American people, Biden will once again use his elitist power and influence to get his way.
Just like he did in Ukraine.
