Advice needed on my Did I Cross The Line lunch

The other day I posted on here describing my lunch with my Republican friend and her republican friend. It was titled "Did I Cross The Line?"

I truly wish I could have recorded the discussion I had with these two women and I wish I could then play the recording for you....it is truly unbelievable how these people think!

Ok...the advice I need is how I should have responded when they brought up Hunter Biden. All I said is 1) what does what Hunter does have to do with Joe? And I also asked 2) where was your interest in the last 4 years in the shenanigans and criminality of Don Jr, Ivanka, and Eric?

But I would like advice on how better I could have answered their question, "What about Hunter Biden?"

Did I Cross The Line?

I went to an outdoor lunch today with my Republican friend (let's call her Sue) and her friend (let's call her Mary) who also happens to be a Republican. They're not just republicans but they are Trumplicans. I know...I know...why do I have a Trumplican for a friend?! I live in Florida....what can I say?? Sue is my only Trumplican friend. I dropped my other ones but this one is hard to drop because she truly is a good person

Anyway, politics came up and they went on and on about how they feel and I went on and on about how i feel. You wouldn't even believe how this conversation went!

But anyway, then it went to how they think Biden has dementia. And I said to them "Do you know why you think Biden has dementia? It's because Fox News has you believing that. Just like in 2016, just before the election, you all believed Hillary was dying of pneumonia because Fox News kept telling you she was! Last I saw, Hillary is very much alive!" So Mary asked if I thought Fox News brainwashes them and I said yes. Both Sue and Mary were flabbergasted with me!

I said let me give you one more small example of showing you how I think Fox News reports things (or in this example, doesn't report things). I asked them to imagine if Hillary had become President and she had put Chelsea in her administration, I said that would have been a 24/7 news story on Fox News on how absolutely horrendous it is that Hillary did that! And then both of you would have vilified Hillary for doing that. Yet, Trump puts Ivanka in there, and not a peep from Fox News! So because Fox News doesn't vilify Trump 24/7 for doing that, you both were completely comfortable with Trump putting Ivanka in his administration

I said these are 2 examples of how Fox News and other right wing media brainwashes people

Again, they were flabbergasted that I said they were being brainwashed! They did not like it one bit!

So, did I cross the line and go too far by telling Sue and Mary, to their faces, that I think they are being brainwashed??
