“You know, I think, as the president explains, that’s his son. That’s a separate thing. And I would like to say about that: That decision was made by an independent prosecutor who is a Trump-appointed U.S. attorney who had 10 years of experience, well respected,” Klobuchar said. “Philadelphia Inquirer reported that he was a registered Republican. He looked at the facts and evidence and made that decision. And by the way, if that’s what the Republicans want to run on in the coming election, good luck, because the president is going to be able to run on the strengths of his work in bringing 13 million jobs back to America and resurging–” she continued. “You understand the perception issue of something like that, though,” Todd reiterated. Klobuchar said yes, she did. “And do you wish that perception were different?” Todd asked. “You always wish there were different perceptions, but that’s not reality,” Klobuchar said. “Reality is whether or not someone is going to be able to get their insulin. And the president has made changes. Reality is whether someone has a job. Reality is when they can go visit their grandma again in an assisted living. Those are people’s realities, not who is sitting where at a state dinner.” Todd’s face at exactly the 1:00 mark is just, well, chef’s kiss. And as for Klobuchar, she’s left behind a clip that philosophy of logic professors will, for decades to come, be able to use to illustrate the principle known as “ignoratio elenchi” — defined by Merriam-Webster as “a fallacy in logic of supposing a point proved or disproved by an argument proving or disproving something not at issue.” [firefly_poll] Sure, Hunter was at a state dinner with the same attorney general whose Justice Department gave him a feather-light slap on the wrist during the same week — but insulin! And jobs! When even Chuck Todd can’t keep a straight face, you need to be doing better, Sen. Klobuchar. Then again, look on the bright side: At least it gives that weird eating-salad-with-a-comb moment a run for its money, meaning it might somehow manage to displace that odd affair as the one thing most politically indifferent Americans remember about you.

Democrat Senator Amy Klobuchar starts laughing and scoffs when asked if it was appropriate for deadbeat Hunter Biden to attend a state dinner — where the attorney general was present — in the same week he accepted a plea deal for multiple federal crimes. pic.twitter.com/7eyq4ZuAL1— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) June 25, 2023
