(Tea Party PAC) – Biden is starting to be turned on by members of the most ardent anti-Trumpers in the media now that the Burisma dirt is starting to see sunlight for the first time.
CNN commentator Ana Navarro is calling Biden out for the very suspicious ties he and his son, Hunter Biden, have in the nation of Ukraine in what marks perhaps the first time someone on CNN has been honest about the topic.
Navarro said during an appearance on CNN’s “New Day” on Monday that Biden has poorly handled questions about what his son’s business connections.
She also noted that these things are “not going away.”
Well, she’s absolutely right about that.
Navarro addressed Biden having walked back comments he’d made on complying with a congressional subpoena in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.
Over the weekend, Biden flip-flopped on whether he would obey such a subpoena, first saying he would defy it, then saying he’d comply, all within 24 hours.
But I am just not going to pretend that there is any legal basis for Republican subpoenas for my testimony in the impeachment trial. That is the point I was making yesterday and I reiterate: this impeachment is about Trump’s conduct, not mine.

Navarro noted that Biden ought to comply with such a subpoena as it would “draw a stark contrast” from Trump in that he’d have nothing to hide.
Ha! That’s rich.
“He should go make the argument nothing was illegal that was done, but I also think, politically, this is going to continue coming up for Biden,” she continued.
“There’s absolutely no shot either in the primary or much less in a general, should he make it, this will not come up and he needs to have tight, consistent answers that are logical, not defensive, not emotional,” Navarro added. “This is going to continue coming up. He needs to know how to deal with it, because it’s not going away.”
Another panelist, Aisha Moodie-Mills, chimed in her agreement.
“I think that some of the challenges that we keep calling gaffes on the campaign trail are his lack of discipline and messaging strategy,” she said. “I’m sure his communication team is constantly cringing because at the end of the day, Ana is right, he needs to stick to some talking points and be super clear about saying what he means and meaning what he says.”
She went on to add that there have “been multiple times he has had to dial back something” and “he keeps doubling down on things he says that may not be thought out and having to retract them.”
“To an extent, you know, on Twitter, in the media, we’ve been saying Joe Biden needs to change his campaign for months now,” CNN anchor John Berman pointed out.
“Let me tell you something, I have a little experience with men,” Navarro joked. “There is no changing a man after he’s done teething.”
