Trump Self Destructs Over ‘Biden’s Laptop’ During Desperate Sunday Meltdown

President Donald Trump is flailing ahead of Election Day, with little solid ground on which to place his re-election campaign. Recently, the New York Post published a highly dubious — to put it lightly — story, suspiciously claiming to have obtained contents from the laptop of Hunter Biden himself. (Hunter is Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son.) Trump has leaped at the dubious laptop story. On Twitter this Sunday morning, he called it “a disaster for the entire Biden family, but especially for his father” — but it’s really not, because the entire story may be a Russia-backed disinformation plot.

Trump tweeted:

‘Hunter Biden’s laptop is a disaster for the entire Biden family, but especially for his father, Joe. It is now a proven fact, and cannot be denied, that all of that info is the REAL DEAL. That makes it impossible for “50%, or 10%” Joe, to ever assume the office of the President!’

A Russian intelligence unit that was partly behind the cyberattack on the Democratic Party during the 2016 election cycle is suspected of being behind a more recent hack targeting Burisma Holdings, a corruption-laced energy company that Hunter worked with. Reportedly, intelligence analysts have been concerned that some of the stolen Burisma material would be released in October alongside outright forgeries. There is no apparent evidence that solidly confirms that the material supposedly from Hunter Biden’s laptop is, in fact, what the New York Post and others have claimed it to be. The publication reportedly got the material from Rudy Giuliani, who in turn claims to have gotten it from a computer repair shop owner in Delaware. Giuliani has previously met with Andrii Derkach, who has since been characterized as a Russian agent by federal authorities.

Meanwhile, Trump also posted some utterly nonsensical drivel about the Coronavirus on Sunday morning. Case totals have been spiking again in some regions of the U.S., and rather than acknowledging increasing community spread of the disease, Trump claimed that the high numbers are because of high testing. This claim is willfully ignorant. Once, Trump claimed that testing “creates” cases, which is utterly ridiculous. The Coronavirus would still spread and be relevant even if not a single test was performed. It wasn’t some kind of mystically pre-ordained conclusion for huge numbers of Americans to get the virus.
