With his trademark eloquence, Biden emphasized how the reauthorization took aim at revenge porn, which he described as “a new civil rights cause of action for those whose intimate images were shared on a public screen.”
“I bet everybody knows somebody,” the president explained, “that in an intimate relationship, what happened was the guy takes a revealing picture of his naked friend, or whatever, in a compromising position and then blackmails.”
True enough, Mr. Biden. Who among us, to pick a random hypothetical from the aether, has not had to face the scandalous repercussions of intimate, illicit photos surfacing after we left a laptop uncollected at a computer repair shop in the sleepy state of Delaware?
As Stacy McCain writes, “Is it not now self-evident that if (a) everything the New York Post reported about Hunter Biden’s laptop is true, then (b) what Joe Biden said about it being a ‘Russian plant’ was a lie? That is to say (c) Biden is a ‘corrupt politician’ exactly as Trump said during that debate, and (d) if the media had reported the truth at the time, maybe Joe Biden wouldn’t be in the White House now.”
