America Reacts to Cocaine Found at White House-Was it Hunter?
Lab tests have confirmed that the white powder discovered by the Secret Service at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue was cocaine, but mainstream media sources are reporting that the culprit is “unlikely to be found,” despite the White House boasting some of the tightest security in the world. In response to the story, Americans have been lighting up the Biden administration, asking questions about how the illegal drug made its way to the West Wing, and pointing figures at Presidential problem child Hunter Biden.
“Does anybody really believe that the COCAINE found in the West Wing of the White House, very close to the Oval Office, is for the use of anyone other than Hunter & Joe Biden,” former President Donald Trump commented on Truth Social Wednesday, before adding somewhat prophetically,
“[W]atch, the Fake News Media will soon start saying that the amount found was ‘very small,’ & it wasn’t really COCAINE, but rather common ground up Aspirin, & the story will vanish.”
The same day, POLITICO reported that the “White House cocaine culprit is unlikely to be found,” citing law enforcement officials.
Members of the left-wing press seemed less than interested in uncovering the “cocaine culprit,” with CNN’s Sara Sidner cracking up and asking a reporter for a “blow-by-blow analysis.” At the same time, MSNBC’s Nate Burleson suggested it may have belonged to the bill from Schoolhouse Rock.
“He was already rolled up in the cartoon; he was ready to go,” co-host Tony Dokoupil added.
MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell: “We have just learned that a formal lab has confirmed the suspicion that that white powdery substance found in the West Wing on Sunday was in fact positive for cocaine."

Others in the media ran cover for Hunter Biden, who had stayed at the White House just days before the discovery. POLITICO reporter Sam Stein strangely offered up the possibility that it was former President Barack Obama’s cocaine that the Secret Service discovered.
“I’m going to venture that Hunter Biden is not the only person who has stepped foot into a White House to have once used cocaine. In fact — you may wanna sit down for this — Barack Obama dabbled with it earlier in his life.”
“Imagine throwing Barack Obama under the bus to spare the reputation of Hunter Biden,” user Sunny Mcsunface replied.
“I am 100% ready for the media’s ‘actually doing cocaine in the White House isn’t a big deal’ hot takes.”

They found grandmas who never entered the Capitol but they can't figure out who dropped a bag of coke in the White House. https://t.co/oSadSCeIr3

Others on the conservative side felt more certain of who the culprit is.
“[B]laming hunter is too easy,” FOX Host Greg Gutfeld wrote on Twitter. “[It’s] too on the nose. or rather in the nose.”
In response to the POLITICO headline about it being “unlikely” that law enforcement find out who did it, Free Beacon contributor Noah Pollak wrote,
“This is like if the Hamburglar lived at the White House and all the hamburgers got stolen and the Secret Service was like we just don’t have any leads, not sure what happened to all those hamburgers.”

On Wednesday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis weighed in during an interview with OutKick’s Tomi Lahren, joking that the Biden White House has been “blowing it on a lot of fronts.”
“I think a lot of us have believed that the Biden administration has been blowing it on a lot of fronts, but I guess it’s a little bit more literal than even I had thought… I can tell you in Florida, my wife and I have… a 6-, 5-, and 3-year-old running around the Governor’s Mansion, so that’s not something that we see.”
“We do have to occasionally get slime out of the carpet and get marker off the wallpaper, but that’s the extent of our adventures at the Governor’s Mansion,” he added.
