White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has been handled with kid gloves by the press.
But reporters are finally doing their jobs and cranking up the heat.
And Jean-Pierre was left stunned when reporters kept asking one question.
The so-called mainstream media is finally beginning to ask serious questions about Joe and Hunter Biden’s potential business dealings.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has managed to deflect questions about the Biden crime family, but reporters’ patience has run out.
The left has shrugged off financial connections between Joe and Hunter despite mounds of evidence found on the “laptop from hell.”
But the links are getting harder to ignore.
Recently, a WhatsApp text message came to light and exposed a shakedown deal on the part of Hunter to a Chinese businessman where he invoked his father’s name in the message.
All hell broke loose when Newsmax White House correspondent James Rosen asked Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby, “The House Ways and Means Committee yesterday released documents — their authenticity nowhere challenged — that included a July 2017 WhatsApp message sent by Hunter Biden to Henry Zhao, a Chinese Communist Party official, which stated, in its entirety, and I quote: ‘I am sitting here with my father, and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled. Tell the director that I would like to resolve this now before it gets out of hand, and now means tonight. And, Z, if I get a call or text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zhang, or the chairman, I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows and my ability to forever hold a grudge, that you will regret not following my direction. I am sitting here waiting for the call with my father.’ So, just a couple of questions about this. First, does this not undermine the President’s claim during the 2020 campaign, and the reaffirmations of that claim by his two press secretaries since then, that he never once discussed his son’s overseas business dealings with him?”
Kirby responded curtly, “No. And I’m not going to comment further on this.”
Soon after, Kirby ducked out and left Jean-Pierre to the wolves.
She attempted to sidestep but continued to be peppered over and over with questions about this seemingly blatant corruption.
In one exchange, Jean-Pierre was asked about Hunter attending a state dinner on the heels of accepting a plea deal that allowed him to avoid federal prison.
She struggled to explain the bad optics and responded, “[T]hat’s his son. It’s a — he’s a family member. It is not uncommon for family members to attend events at the White House. We could look at past presidents; I’m sure you have. So that is not uncommon.”

The more the Democrats try to downplay the Biden family’s corruption, the more evidence that crops up.
If Donald Trump Jr. wrote a text message shaking down a Russian oligarch for cash – and name-dropped his father –the entire Democrat Party and press corps would be having kittens.
