On Sunday, the now First Son was with his father in a presidential motorcade on the way to mass at a church in Georgetown. The shadowy figure, who has been at the center of a federal investigation since 2018, made a simple request that his pops couldn’t resist.
Matt Viser of the Washington Post reported on Hunter Biden’s urgent matter:
En route back from church, Biden diverted motorcade so Hunter Biden could make a food run at Call Your Mother, arguably the best bagel shop in DC. Hunter stood at the window several minutes for the takeout order as his dad and daughters waited in the car, per pooler @TomDeFrank

Bagels? Sure, why not. The news media gushed about the adorable father-son bonding over the tasty baked goods.

President Biden just left @CYM_DC in Georgetown after leaving mass at Holy Trinity. A Secret Service agent placed and picked up the order. Biden never exited his motorcade but did wave to a crowd of cheering onlookers. @nbcwashington pic.twitter.com/HbKnvr8sjm

This is the excellent Call Your Mother bagelry-deli in Georgetown, where Biden family stopped today. Pastrami excellent. One of first local outings by this President. pic.twitter.com/Hx7UVo8B1S

“Biden has now visited the same number of restaurants that Donald Trump did in his entire four years in office. The former President never dined anywhere in DC other than the steakhouse in his Pennsylvania Avenue hotel.” https://t.co/v7lfz22MTj

There is an obvious problem with this story. It’s not the Hunter Biden story that the mainstream press should be covering.
As several more serious commentators noted:
In 2013, Joe Biden and Hunter Biden flew aboard Air Force Two to China. Ten days later, Hunter Biden’s firm bagged a $1.5 billion deal with a subsidiary of the Communist Chinese government’s Bank of China. https://t.co/IgJQ1w9LMp

This is the most coverage Hunter Biden has ever received by the mainstream media.
What a joke. https://t.co/nov8q74Aeu

Today's ooooh & ahhhh news cycle over Biden going to church & Hunter getting bagels while no one ever asked Biden about the troops in parking garages was just swell.
Good job, everyone. This is why no one likes or trusts you.

Biden’s Make China Great Again plan is off to a quick start. Biden just revoked Trump’s EO banning China from getting involved in our power grid. All of China’s "deals" with Hunter Biden are paying off now. The Fox is in the hen house. https://t.co/pzmzUDdGQI

Who says the media doesn’t cover the most important Hunter Biden story? https://t.co/b6MaDHKDvm

BREAKING: Hunter Biden advised his father to not have a strong respond to China’s breaches of Taiwan air defense zone, per WH official. “Don’t take the bait, Dad”

Does anyone remember the mainstream press doing a “bagel run” story with Donald Trump and either Eric Trump or Donald Trump Jr. when the former president was in office? No, they don’t.
Because much like the bagels that were picked in Georgetown, the mainstream press is in the bag for the Bidens.
