Posted on 10/20/2020 1:54:12 PM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines
The Biden campaign is taking flack for a recent television ad featuring a struggling Michigan bar owner that the ad neglects to mention is actually an affluent veteran tech investor who donated to the Democratic presidential nominees campaign.
Joe Malcoun, who is introduced in the ad as the co-owner of The Blind Pig in Ann Arbor, Mich., backed Democratic Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmers stringent lockdown orders that kept businesses shuttered for months but says he blames President Trumps administration for his businesss pandemic woes.
the ad does not mention Malcouns other business ventures, including being an angel investor in several growing tech companies. He inherited money from his wifes grandfather and founded CKM Capital Partners in 2013. The next year, Malcoun began serving as CEO of Nutshell, a tech company selling customer relationship management software, which raised $5.5 million in angel and venture capital. He also co-founded Cahoots, a co-working and event space for tech entrepreneurs and bought three buildings in downtown Ann Arbor for his various businesses.
In July, Malcoun donated $5,000 to Biden For President, according to data from the Federal Election Commission.

Joe Biden’s a liar that surrounds himself with liars. I wish to God the left could grow up.
His hobby is a bar that loses money.
Bet part of the reason it loses money is him and his friends drink there and don’t pay.
You’re a good guy whose wishes to God count for something.
Please make them at least somewhat plausible :)
By definition, the left is infantile.
Believing in a diverse utopia where everything is sunshine and rainbows is the definition of infantile.
Full Disclosure: I have So Much wished the same thing. I want no battles, no deaths, just for the opposition to maturely lay out their differences with the POTUS and be the loyal opposition we have had for hundreds of years.
I gave up on that.
I admire that you want that, though.
But I just gave up.
Trump will win and the cities will explode.
So be it.
“I’m Joe Biden and I have no idea what’s in this ad”!
“Fake but accurate.”
I don’t see how more than half of voters could vote for
Biden is taking flack? From whom? Not the fake news.
I watch local Miami media...nearly 100% of it is Biden butt kissing.
These people could mess up a wet dream. They can’t even find a real struggling small businessman, though there are tens of thousands of them easily locatable.
It’s a quote I remember, that criminals always act like criminals even when honesty is the better option. These people have to do everything in a fraudulent manner. The thought of finding a real struggling businessman would never cross their crooked minds. Instead they have to find a phony... like themselves.
What is an “angel investor”? I’ve owned 3 different companies and never heard the term. However, those companies were back in the 90’s.
Beijings Joe Braindeaden, the criminal father of Humpher Biden!
You didn’t build that.
In a sane and just world, a party that is as corrupt, vile, violent and full of habitual liars and hypocrites as the Democrats are wouldn’t get more than 3% of the vote.
I havent seen a single Biden ad yet that isnt full of bald-face lies from beginning to end.
Let the cities explode, the only way the Left will get it is if their blood is shed in good quantities. Lots of long prison terms wouldnt hurt either.
Heres the thing Jack, if the rats werent lying or misrepresenting the facts-they wouldnt be speaking at all....cmon man....
Possibly his hobby is easy, drunk bar-chicks.
Of course he can legally write off the losses on the bar to offset his other income. Just like Trump does.
Yeah, but we’re talking about this election and they are
still thought to be competitive.
I don’t disagree, but we’re still stuck with them right now.
