The New York Post was out today with a hot scoop on a “smoking-gun email” purportedly recovered from Hunter Biden’s seized laptop. The email suggests that Hunter Biden introduced a top Burisma exec to his father, then-VP Joe Biden, in 2015.

At the very least — the very least — the optics of this aren’t great. So, what’s a brave firefighter to do?

Well, for what it’s worth, here’s how Politico Congress reporter Kyle Cheney is handling it:

Shorter Kyle: “Lemme adjust my blindfold … OK, nothing to see here, dammit!”

If Kyle admits that this doesn’t look good, then he’s effectively admitting that the Bidens may not be as squeaky-clean as he wants them to be … and that violates the code of liberal journalistic ethics.

And we can’t have that!

Kyle seems very emotionally invested in Joe Biden’s image. Weird.

Update:

It’s the charge of the Kyle Brigade!

Adorable.
