What is the fake conspiracy theory about Hunter Biden and Malia Obama?

Some social media users have insisted that Hunter Biden and Malia Obama did drugs together and had sex, according to The International Business Times.

An image of a credit card seen next to a powdery substance is the root of the fictional claim, AceShowbiz reports. The dangerous internet rumor is untrue and without any foundation.

Malia Obama, 22, is the older daughter of former president Barack Obama. Hunter Biden, 50, is a lawyer and son of Joe Biden.

Conspiracy theorists claim Biden can be seen holding the hair of Malia Obama in a photo.

"Is that Malia Obama partially blurred in the photos with Hunter Biden? Sure looks like it when combined with the lines of cocaine and her credit card," one social media user wrote, according to The International Business Times.

What is the Hunter Biden laptop scandal?

A laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden is believed to contain emails that reveal his foreign business dealings in Ukraine  – as well as suspected compromising photos involving sex acts and crack cocaine use.

Biden's laptop has been the subject of a media storm after the New York Post published a "smoking-gun" email that it alleged reveals how Hunter Biden introduced his father to a Ukrainian businessman, Vadym Pozharskyi, when Joe Biden was Vice President.

Some Republicans have claimed that Joe Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine to fire a prosecutor investigating Burisma, an energy firm Pozharskyi was an advisor to and Hunter Biden was on the board of.

The Biden campaign has strongly denied the claims, with the candidate branding the allegations a "smear campaign."

The laptop is also reported to contain a 12-minute video that appears to show Hunter smoking crack while engaged in a sex act with an unidentified woman, as well as other sexually explicit images.

Videos and photos allegedly showing Hunter Biden "engaging in sex acts" were posted on a Chinese website linked to ex-Trump adviser Steve Bannon, according to reports.
