Author Sam Harris said he supported the censorship of the Hunter Biden story despite acknowledging it was “a left-wing conspiracy to deny the presidency to Donald Trump,” but then later clarified that he didn’t say that, even though he did.
Harris, who once found favor amongst some on the right for standing up against identity politics and Islamism, suffered a rather severe bout of Trump derangement syndrome around the 2016 election and hasn’t recovered since.
The public intellectual made the bizarre comments during an interview with the TRIGGERnometry podcast.
“Whatever the scope of what Joe Biden’s corruption is–we can just go down that rabbit hole endlessly and understand that he’s getting kickbacks from Hunter Biden’s deals in Ukraine or wherever else, or China–it is infinitesimal compared to the corruption we know Trump is involved in,” Harris told the hosts.
“It’s like a firefly to the sun…it doesn’t even stack up against Trump University,” he added. “Trump University, as a story, is worse than anything that could be in Hunter Biden’s laptop in my view.”
