Speaking with the podcast Triggernometry on Wednesday, author and philosopher Sam Harris admitted that censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop story during the 2020 election was a "left wing conspiracy" to help Biden get into the White House, and that any corruption from the Biden family was "infinitesimal compared to the corruption we know Trump is involved in."
"We could just go down that rabbit hole endlessly and understand that he's getting kickbacks from Hunter Biden's deals in Ukraine or wherever else right? Or China. It is infinitesimal compared to the corruption we know Trump is involved in," said Harris.
"It's like a firefly to the sun. Right? I mean, like there's just, it doesn't even — it doesn't even stack up against Trump University. Right? Trump University as a story is worse than anything that could be in Hunter Biden's laptop, in my view, right," he continued.
"Now that's not — that doesn't answer the people who say it’s still completely unfair to not have looked at the laptop in a timely way and to have shut down the, you know, the New York Post's Twitter account like that, that's just a conspiracy. That's a left wing conspiracy to deny the presidency to Donald Trump. Absolutely it was, absolutely, right? But I think it was warranted, right?"
The hosts pressed Harris on the comment asking whether he was content with preventing someone being from democratically elected in this way.
"It was a conspiracy out in the open, but it doesn't matter if it was — It doesn't matter what part’s conspiracy, what part’s out in the open. I mean, I think it's like if people get together and talk about and talk about what should we do about this phenomenon. It's like if there was an asteroid hurtling toward Earth, and we got in a room together with all of our friends and had a conversation about what we could do to deflect its course. Right? Is that a conspiracy?"
Earlier in the conversation, Harris had noted that "Hunter literally could have had the corpses of children in his basement. I would not have cared."
In the October immediately before the 2020 election, the New York Post broke the story surrounding Hunter Biden's abandoned laptop, and the contents it contained, including business deals with foreign nations like China, and how his father was involved. Subsequently, the New York Post's Twitter account was suspended, and the story was suppressed, with major news outlets not acknowledging the existence of the laptop until recently.
