Joe Biden’s campaign is in the hot seat, once again. Over the course of Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign, he’s spent time taking shots at the president and calling for the censorship of right-wing figures. Biden has routinely branded Trump as corrupt and dishonest, despite the lack of evidence to support these claims.

Now, in a hypocritical twist of irony, Joe Biden is now complaining that Fox News ran a “Biden Corruption” Trump ad which points out Biden’s quid-pro-quo with Ukraine. The Washington Examiner reports that Biden is not happy about the circulation of this ad and furthermore had the audacity to ask Fox News to censor it.

The response from Fox News was nothing short of epic.

A Closer Look at Biden’s Failed Attempt to Censor Trump

In essence, Biden is running scared because he’s afraid that the full extent of his corruption with Ukraine will be revealed for the nation to see and analyze.

This is why he previously requested for major news networks to censor Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and stop him from appearing on-air; it also explains why Biden lashed out at a reporter who asked him about links between his oversight of Ukraine as vice president and Hunter Biden’s employment with a Ukraine gas company.

In Biden’s latest attempt to shield himself from exposure, his campaign manager Greg Schultz wrote to Fox News and Fox Business, asking them not to “disseminate outright lies.”

Following this letter, Fox News issued the following public statement:

“We are not in the business of censoring ads from candidates on either side of the aisle. Vice President Joe Biden has a standing invitation to appear on any of our platforms.”

Of course, Joe Biden’s campaign hasn’t hesitated to release his own campaign ads which attack the president:

A Pattern of Attempts to Censor Others

Throughout his time as a 2020 presidential candidate, Joe Biden has repeatedly attempted to censor his political opponents.

He claims innocence against the accusations against him, but then continuously tries to censor anyone who criticizes him; of course, Biden doesn’t have any qualms about going after Trump and others who he views unfavorably. The former vice president believes that he should be held to one standard, while others are held to completely different standards.
