In June, The View’s Ana Navarro spun Hunter Biden’s crime-ridden life as “the story of a father’s love.” Now, MSNBC denies the Biden family’s participation in any crime–instead padding their news shows’ runtime with insults against Republicans and pleas for “compassion.”

And it turns out she's not the only one who's twisting this story to fit a nice little father-son narrative.

Guest host and former White House press secretary Jen Psaki interviewed MSNBC analyst Claire McCaskill during the Wednesday episode of “All In.”

“I mean, Hunter Biden is a favorite target of Republicans and the House Republicans from the Trump wing of the party and others,” Psaki said. “What accusations and arguments do you think they’re going to make, given this didn’t go exactly as planned today?”

McCaskill started her “analysis” by pulling a Navarro. “Well, they’re going to keep doing what they’ve been doing. They are going to try to indict a father for loving his son who has been addicted to drugs and/or alcohol[.]"

She then claimed that most Americans would agree with her. 

“It may fly within that small, calcified circle of the Trumpers who want to make, want to believe that somehow Joe Biden was involved in nefarious dealings,” McCaskill explained. “But there’s no evidence.”

But outright denial wasn’t enough for McCaskill. She then insulted Republicans, accusing them of mental illness. 

“They have selective amnesia,” she claimed. “I mean, I can make a very strong argument politically that the only reason Donald Trump is president is because of DOJ and them inappropriately issuing a letter ten days before the election about Hillary Clinton’s emails.”

I will cede the point that drug addicts need love and care–but well-informed Americans know better than to believe that “care” includes a lack of punishment for high crimes and misdemeanors.
