Fox News is reporting that the Michigan bar owner shown in a Joe Biden campaign ad, and depicted as struggling to keep things afloat is actually “a wealthy tech investor who made contributions to the former vice president’s campaign.”

Bar co-owner Joe Malcoun at the Blind Pig in Ann Arbor says in the advertisement, now on YouTube, “For 50 years, The Blind Pig has been open and crowded – but right now it’s an empty room. This is the reality of Trump’s COVID response.”

He then asserts, “We don’t know how much longer we can survive not having any revenue. A lot of restaurants, bars that have been mainstays for years will not make it through this. This is Donald Trump’s economy.”

But is it really Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s economy? According to the Fox story, Malcoun “supported Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer‘s stay-at-home orders that kept businesses shuttered longer.”

The revealing story comes as Politico is reporting “The Biden campaign says it is removing images of a retired general who led the fight against the Islamic State after he objected to appearing in an ad touting the former vice president’s accomplishments.”

The retired general is identified as Lt. Gen. Sean MacFarland.

With two weeks remaining in the 2020 presidential campaign, and Biden preparing for his second debate with President Donald Trump, the American landscape has turned completely political. Polls show Biden ahead in several key states, but Trump supporters recall the president was in the same spot four years ago when everyone expected Hillary Rodham Clinton to waltz in to the White House as the first-ever female president.

Trump surprised the entire world, and particularly the Beltway establishment, which felt threatened because of his promises to “drain the swamp” if elected.

Until the COVID-19 pandemic materialized earlier this year, the economy was growing, unemployment even for minorities was down to record levels and he had been fulfilling campaign promises to bring balance to the federal courts. Only when the disease struck did the economy plummet, unemployment shot upwards and many small businesses in Democrat-run cities and towns were forced to close.

Fox News referred to the Federal Elections Commission, which says Malcoun donated $5,000 to the Biden campaign back in July.

Writing in an Op-Ed for Fox News, author Tom Del Beccaro—former chairman of the California Republican Party—is predicting a “surprise” Trump victory. He lists several reasons for reaching that conclusion.

Update: After the truth came out about Malcoun, the campaign of lying Joe Biden pulled the ad.
