It would appear that the big nothing burger of a cocaine baggy, or at least what I thought was a big nothing burger, has turned into a little something.
As it turns out, the overwhelming majority of Americans, 63 percent, believe the cocaine being found in the White House is a problem.
I would say that is definitely something for the Biden administration to be concerned about.
Where Did It Come From?
When I first reported on this, I honestly thought it would blow over simply due to the timeline.
Since the cocaine was found on Sunday and the entire First Family was out of town since Friday night, I did not believe it could be anything but a tourist.
Apparently, America does not feel that way, and the way the Secret Service handled this did not exactly help.
They should have been able to get some type of print off the plastic baggie, but they claim they did not, and the dope was destroyed not long after, which really got everyone’s ears up.
According to the Daily Caller, “A total of 63% believe it is a ‘problem,’ while 30% believe it is not a problem, according to a WPA poll conducted on behalf of Club for Growth. Just over 40% of respondents, 41%, said it is a ‘very big problem,’ and 22% say it is ‘somewhat of a problem.’”
The cocaine was initially found on July 2, with the Secret Service ending its investigation on July 13 with no actual conclusion as to how the drugs wound up in the cubby.
According to the report, they went over the security footage from the entire weekend, observing hundreds of people, as well as the visitor logs from that weekend.
Of course, conservatives were hoping to have the cocaine linked to Hunter Biden, as that would have been a dream scenario after Hunter got a sweetheart plea deal for his IRS and gun charges.
