After the Republicans regained control of the House of Representatives, the party revealed its top priorities for the upcoming legislature.
Hunter Biden’s laptop tops the list.
House Republicans are widely derided for their promise to investigate the laptop. While much of the comment was more serious, the Republican tweet calling the President “the BIG GUY” inspired many NSFW jokes.
Conservatives have been obsessed with Biden’s laptop since the 2020 election. They constantly posted pornographic content and emails claiming to be on the device.
Some were initially skeptical about the authenticity of the laptop.
Earlier this year, the Washington Post confirms thousands of emails from the laptop are authentic. However, the experts consulted could not verify more than 90% of the emails.
Republicans have remained fixated on what they believe proves Biden was involved in shady dealings. They also believe his father, President Joe Biden, is involved.
House Republicans are now carrying out their vow to examine the younger Biden’s laptop. They officially announced the investigation on Thursday.
They’ve also posted several tweets on the subject, including “Hunter Biden’s laptop is REAL” and the cryptic “Joe Biden is the BIG MAN”.
Hunter Biden reportedly emailed a shady business partner that he needed to inquire about a deal with the “big guy.”
QAnon conspiracy theorists and GOP politicians cheered the news.
“They have all the evidence of Hunter Biden’s laptop from hell and are cracking down,” conspiracy theorist Ann Vandersteel wrote on Telegram.
Liberals laughed collectively.
“Republicans literally ran for inflation, crime and the frontier, but their first job: Hunter Biden. Voters should take note of 2024,” according to left-leaning political action committee Really American tweeted.
Another observer said they “didn’t give a fuck” about the laptop.
The “BIG GUY” tweet inspired a lot of dick jokes.
“That’s what your wife calls him,” @gayguycandleco tweeted.
“Are we talking about Biden’s package again?” @LiberalWombat joked.
With their majority, the House of Representatives could also subpoena Hunter Biden to testify before Congress.
