“The idea that nepotism would allow much larger amounts of money to flow into the hands of people unqualified, to be in the positions that they’ve been accepted because you think those countries are trying to buy influence,” Stewart said.
“Yeah. Welcome to the f***ing world. And I think I think it’s a huge problem on its face. Forget about any secret laptop,” he added.

Bigger than the laptop
“It’s not even that I’m not surprised. It’s that it’s corrupt on its face,” Stewart said. “I don’t need a laptop with like a hint of circumstantial evidence. Now tying Joe Biden to it, yeah, that’s going to take some digging,” Stewart added.
“And if it’s real, you know, that’s a thing. But the idea that nepotism would allow much larger amounts of money to flow into the hands of people unqualified to be in the positions they’ve been accepted because you think those countries are trying to buy influence,” he continued.

While the comedian’s words are revealing, they come two years after the scandal involving Hunter’s laptop ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
The mainstream media now seems more open to talking about the controversy, perhaps as Democrats see sweeping defeats in November and intend to shift focus.
The latest attacks on Hunter, however, won’t go away after November. Republicans and even some Democrats may return to the issue to push for a new candidate for 2024.
