In a Biden World | The Roundtable Ep. 180

Revelations and accusations are swarming around Hunter Biden. A foreign informant has alleged that the Bidens received $10 million in bribes from the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, and Hunter’s plea deal on tax evasion charges has fallen apart. Will anything come of it–and would impeachment play right into the Democrats’ hands? Meanwhile, from Greta Gerwig’s Barbie to Jason Aldean’s “Small Town,” a new round of culture war salvos is heating up. The editors reflect on the tangled relationship between art and politics, then they remind you to read the damn site.
