GOP Senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson have released their preliminary report on Hunter Biden, and it’s problematic, to say the least.
No, not because of Biden’s super-shady business dealings and compelling evidence of corruption. It’s because of the grammar.
Here, let Washington Post senior political reporter Aaron Blake show you:
This Senate GOP report on Hunter Biden could have used some more proofreading.
In one graph: Both "but" and "however" in the same sentence.
The next sentence: "to drive a wedge between Ukrainian and the U.S. in an effort to …" pic.twitter.com/j45o4dp05n

Welp, that’s it. The case against Hunter Biden is officially toast. Grassley and Johnson should just get it over with now and retire in shame.
good to know you can spot the most important part of report 🙄🙄

The sad thing is that Aaron actually thinks he did get ’em.

Narrator: Aaron only thinks he’s a serious journalist. He is, in fact, not a serious person.
Yep, definitely focus on the grammar. pic.twitter.com/VxSI4y7Nwy

This is typical deflection. You’re focusing on the grammar rather than the content. Good one.

Lets not focus on the content within the document….The proofreading is what needs to be addressed…..🤡

Thank you, Mr. Grammar Police. Let's discuss the actual content, shall we?

Now evaluate the content and not the typos

If Aaron evaluates the content, he’ll have actually evaluate it, you know? And he might not like what he reads.

If Aaron closes his eyes and plugs his ears, maybe all of this will go away.
I’m so sorry this is happening to you

I'm sorry this is happening to you. My condolences, and I wish your butt a speedy recovery from its hurt.
