It's not work safe, but no one takes down the stupid "Hunter Biden laptop" story like Hal Sparks.

You'd think by 2022 actual reporters would realize there is no Hunter Biden laptop, and that the hard drives in the hands of Rudy Guiliani for months and months have huge chain of custody problems that mean any data allegedly "contained" on the "laptop" are inadmissible.

But in April of 2022 The Washington Post decided they needed to do a deep dive into the nothingburger. And as Heather wrote here at the time,

Even The Washington Post's own reporting admits that there are huge issues with what their "experts" examined from those contents.

Don't get me started on how Hunter Biden is fully cooperating with both the IRS and the FBI in their actual investigation of "the laptop." (Note to your MAGA relatives Hunter will not be charged with tax evasion because he's paid his back taxes.) Mr. Biden has been asked to verify which emails on the laptop were genuine, apparently because a lot of RUSSIAN DISINFORMATION is also contained on these Giuliani-sourced hard drives.

But Right Wing media needs a distraction story (see Solyndra Benghazi baby parts pizzagate birther tan suit Christmas card lists and the tarmac.)

Here's a crookie to dishonor this garbage, coming soon to a Republican Congressional hearing at taxpayer expense near you.
