The Guardian reports:
Donald Trump today repeated his debunked corruption claims against Joe Biden and accused the media of being “crooked as hell” for not reporting the false accusations as fact. “Joe Biden and his son are corrupt but the fake news doesn’t want to report it because they’re Democrats,” Trump said at the UN General Assembly.
The president added, “If a Republican ever said what Joe Biden said, they’d be getting the electric chair probably right now.” Again, there has been no evidence of Biden trying to profit off his office while serving as vice president.
Trump went on to slam the media. “You people ought to be ashamed of yourselves,” he told the assembled journalists. While noting that he appreciated the work of some reporters, he argued that most were “crooked as hell.”

Trump screams that the media is “crooked as hell” and says a Republican would “get the electric chair” for what Biden has done, doesn’t actually say what Biden has done but tries to cast aspersions. This is all occurring at the annual UN meeting. pic.twitter.com/TR0RSNkzMa
