The CrookedBiden hashtag has been all the rage on social media ever since, with Twitter users lambasting the Democratic candidate over information claiming his son Hunter Biden accepted a $ 50,000 salary from Burisma, an energy company in Ukraine. Mr Biden has denied knowing about his son’s business dealings and has also denied any conflicts of interest because of it. The “#CrookedJoeBiden” trend peaked last night before the former vice-president appeared at ABC News.
“It’s time to tell the truth to the American people.”

One user said: “It’s because Jack Dorsey is just as twisted as #CrookedJoeBiden. “
