Questioners at ABC’s town hall event for Joe Biden Thursday night included a former speechwriter for President Barack Obama and the wife of a former Democratic candidate for office.
Biden served as VP under President Obama.
Fox News reports:
“One of the questioners at the ABC-hosted event was Nathan Osburn, a former speechwriter for the Obama White House. Osburn specifically worked for the Office of Public Affairs at the Commerce Department under the Obama-Biden administration and at the Small Business Administration.”
“Osburn’s profession was listed as ‘communications’ on the ABC town hall graphic and his city was listed as Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.”
“Osburn was quoted in the Philadelphia Inquirer earlier this year as ‘a former Obama administration speechwriter’ who had created a ‘Philly for Pete group’ aimed at boosting former Democratic presidential primary candidate Pete Buttigieg. And the LGBTQ Victory Institute listed Osburn as a senior speechwriter for the Small Business Administration in an article praising the Obama-Biden administration for its LGBTQ hiring practices.”
The other questioner is the wife of former Pennsylvania State Senate Candidate Ezra Nunes. She told Biden about their “8-year-old transgender daughter.” Biden agreed that children should be able to change their gender.
Our children and I are so proud of our @MiekeHaeck for her courage in asking this question of @JoeBiden and so grateful to our next President for his caring and decisive answer in support of transgender and all LGBTQ people. https://t.co/zvDlO9c2Tl

No questions were asked of Biden about the Hunter Biden email scandal, in which a trove of emails found on a laptop allegedly belonging to the younger Biden purportedly show Hunter willing to trade influence for tens of millions of dollars from foreign actors.
