Biden admin invokes Hatch Act to dodge cocaine question. Hatch Act, are you high?


The owner of the illegal drugs found in the White House has still not been identified and the Biden administration isn’t answering whether the President or his son, Hunter, owned what has been confirmed to be cocaine.

When asked, at Thursday’s press conference, whether the President can deny that he or his son owned the cocaine found at the White House, Bates invoked the Hatch Act — legislation prohibiting federal employees from talking about or using federal resources for campaign purposes — to dodge the question, leaving many experts baffled.

“I don’t have a response to that, because we have to be careful about the Hatch Act,” Bates replied. “What I will say, is that I have noticed there does seem to be some increasing frustration coming from that corner in general, and I think it is probably rooted in the contrast between their substantive policy records.”

In order to control the narrative, Bates dutifully and shamelessly pivoted to speaking about Biden’s policy record compared to that of his predecessor.

“There is a long list of areas where this Administration succeeded for the middle class where our predecessor did not.  For example, infrastructure is no longer a punchline.”  This comment comes on the heels of a major collapse to interstate 95 in Philadelphia, in addition to other catastrophic infrastructure failures.

Attorney Bradley P. Moss on Fox News Digital said he is “candidly at a loss as to why Mr. Bates believes the Hatch Act is relevant with respect to addressing that question.”

He went on to say, “I could envision other legitimate bases for declining to respond, such as respecting the integrity of the ongoing investigation, but references to the Hatch Act seem misplaced.”

Former Bush administration ethics chief Richard Painter also told Fox News Digital that while he has given lectures at the White House and published articles on the Hatch Act, the bill “does not cover snorting cocaine.”

Many on social media criticized the White House for invoking the Hatch Act to dodge the question.

Washington insiders were left stunned:

Byron York tweeted out, “The Hatch Act?”

Mollie Hemingway tweeted “That response is so bizarre as to seem drug-induced…”

Bookies in Hunter Biden’s old stomping grounds, Las Vegas, have already started odds that Hunter is the likely culprit behind the cocaine found at the White House.  Place your bets folks!  Though we may never know, given.. well – The Hatch Act.
