Media Obsessed over Rumors of Trump ‘N-word’ Tape; Largely Ignore Hunter Biden Texts

The mainstream media breathlessly reported rumors for several years that a tape existed of President Donald Trump saying the “N-word,” but largely ignored a report Tuesday that Hunter Biden used it in text messages with his lawyer.

On Tuesday, the UK Daily Mail reported that Hunter Biden had used the “N-word” repeatedly in text messages with attorney George Mesires, who is white. The text messages were downloaded from Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop.

Hunter Biden’s father, President Joe Biden, is already known to have used the “N-word” often as a Democratic Senator, typically while attributing it to other people — such as his “less educated constituency” in Delaware in a 1973 hearing.

But Trump is not known to have used the word, though the media took great interest in the possibility that he might have done so, and reported on the rumors that a recording might have existed, hoping that it would undo his presidency.

CBS News, for example, reported in 2018 that disgruntled former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newman claimed Trump staffers were aware of such a tape, but downplayed the fact that staffers later said no such tape existed.
