This is where the GOP is going with this mess. October 3rd, the occupant of the White House stood on the south lawn and pulled what is basically a redux of his 'Russia if you're listening...' garbage during his campaign before he took the title of President. There is video of it.

"China should start an investigation into the Bidens"

That was less than a week ago. Since then, what started as a trickle of spin has become a full-throated campaign by elected officials and conservative pundits saying it was a joke.
This goes back to the president’s appearance on the South Lawn on Oct. 3, when Trump asked China to investigate former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter. There’s no way to defend a president publicly asking a geopolitical rival to investigate domestic political rivals, so Republicans have decided to pretend he didn’t do that. The first up was Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.): “I don’t think it’s a real request,” he told reporters Friday morning, “I think he did it to provoke you to ask me and others and get outraged by it.” Republicans on the Sunday shows followed suit. “I doubt if the China comment was serious, to tell you the truth,” said Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) on CBS’s “Face the Nation." On ABC, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) feigned incredulity: “George, you really think he was serious about thinking that China’s going to investigate the Biden family?”
This Morning house minority leader Kevin Mcarthy took it one more dangerous step further.

Here's the problem, and it's a big one. While the GOP is saying it's a joke, they are also telling us not to believe the pResident. In the meantime, the only one NOT saying it was a joke (so far) is the person who actually said that China should investigate the Bidens: tRump himself.

The GOP is asking us not to believe the executive branch because he was just joking around. This is really bad especially when people (like sycophant Lyndsey Graham) seem incredulous about the USA announcing we are pulling out of Syria, leaving the Kurds (our allies in the fight against ISIS) to fend for themselves, leading to a possible genocide. It's that serious. Lindsey Graham himself doesn't know what to believe. note the word "if"

You know who else 'jokes'? This guy.
When asked about concerns that Russia might interfere in the 2020 US elections, he replied: "I'll tell you a secret: Yes, we'll definitely do it," Putin said. "Just don't tell anyone," he added, in a stage whisper.

In the meantime this is what sane people are being told:
