Fort Knox is where the United States holds more than 4,580 tons of gold, yet the facility could take notes from the wall of protection that has been erected around Hunter Biden.
President Joe Biden’s son has been mired in more scandals than you can shake a stick at, from crack sales to illegal gun purchases to sleeping with the widow of his dead brother. But all of this pales in comparison to his scandalous business of trading on his father’s famous name and allegedly selling access to foreign bidders, including those inside Communist China.
But none of that came up in an interview Hunter Biden did on a Twitter Spaces live broadcast, with the host later saying his hands were “tied” on what he could bring up.

Mario Nawfal, host of “The Crypto Roundtable Show,” billed the interview ahead of time on Twitter as a discussion on Hunter Biden’s “art and his interest in NFTs & crypto,” but his famous guest reportedly had little to offer on the latter topic, focusing more on promoting his “art” and how that helps with his sobriety. NFTs are digital tokens artists use to make digital artwork profitable.
“I have a therapist,” Biden said. “But you know, when I make my art, and I make art every day at least as many hours as I can possibly fit in with the day… When I make art, I become fully immersed in it. It’s something that takes up the entirety of my attention or focus.”
As Nawfal began thanking Biden and another quest, Donald Kushner, the creator of the NFT Cryptosaurs, both men appeared to bail without a word. The host was highly irked over what he saw as a slight, and he would proceed to tell his audience how “stressful” the whole affair was and that his “hands were tied” on what he could ask Biden.
“They just jumped off now,” he said. “So, that gives you an idea of how – behind the scenes, that was tough. … There was a lot of requirements we had to meet. F–k that was so stressful. That was so f–king stressful, man.”

In effect, he was informed on what questions he could and could not ask.
“There’s a lot of stories that I wasn’t aware of that kind of made this significantly more tricky and delicate,” Nawfal said. “Usually, I’m very open, I ask questions, I debate. It’s like a free mic, anyone could ask any questions. We always let debates happen. But this is the first time where we, like, kind of f–king hands tied: ‘These are the questions you ask. You can’t ask any other questions.’ And, bro, it was difficult.”
The host would explain that Biden jumped off just as he was going to open the conversation up for other participants to ask questions and said he was to blame for agreeing to the terms — it was Hunter Biden, after all, and Nawfal was in the process of complimenting him for coming on a live show when he bailed.
“My fault was to accept any guests, I don’t care if it’s a president next time, any guests that comes on, that’s my rule moving forward as of today,” he said. “Any guest that comes on from now on has to be ready to be able to answer any f–king question we want to ask – no pre-packed questions.”
Of course, there are a host of “political questions” that could be asked, beginning with why did the Ukrainian gas company Burisma pay Hunter Biden more than $80,000 a month to sit on its board despite him having no experience in the field.
Even more relevant are questions about his father meeting with a number of his business partners from Ukraine, China, and other countries.
Joe Biden met with at least 14 of Hunter Biden’s business associates while he was vice president in the Obama White House, according to Fox News, this coming after then-candidate Biden saying in 2019, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”
Another participant under the Twitter handle @NFTz_me ( NFTz is a trade community founded by five individuals, including the unhinged left-wing Krassenstein brothers,) jumped in to defend the decision, talking about the “political atmosphere” around Hunter.
“I think if you open things up you would have had a sh-t show rather than an actual conversation and he’s a recovering addict you don’t want to stray from what he’s there for,” the person said.
Nawfal shared a screengrab from the Daily Mail, which questioned whether Hunter Biden was “about to cash in on crypto craze,” with the headline noting that he “seemingly hangs up when podcast host asks if he’s about to turn art into NFTs.”
I started this show a few weeks ago focusing on crypto & now hosting guests like Elon Musk, Hunter Biden, Mick Mulvaney, CZ.
I'm still learning…
After today there is 1 thing I can promise you: All future shows will maintain 2 pillars:

A producer would eventually tell Nawfal that the disconnect may have been a technical glitch, and that prompted Kushner’s business partner Mike Bonhoeffer to confront the host for throwing Hunter “under the bus” over something he supposedly had no control of.
“I have not heard anybody thrown under the bus that way because of a glitch on your system,” Bonhoeffer said, adding that questions were limited because Biden wanted to avoid contentious political discussions.
“Hunter is somebody who does not want to talk about politics because he’s not a politician, he’s an artist,” a protective Bonhoeffer said. “We took a look at the stream of vitriol that came when you put the promo up on your Twitter feed, and it was thousands of people sh*t-talking Hunter Biden. So, we have to put constraints on this.”
