Popular conservative pundit Tucker Carlson has come out and shared his take on the new “sweetheart deal” that Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, has made with prosecutors that will essentially enable him to escape any real consequences for not paying his income taxes, in an episode of his new show, “Tucker on Twitter,” which was posted on the social media platform on Tuesday.
The younger son of the president agreed that he would plead guilty to two federal charges of illegally purchasing a gun while he was under the influence of drugs and for failing to pay off his income taxes in 2017 and 2018. Carlson then noted that Weiss prosecuted Hunter Biden as a means of making the current 37-count indictment against former President Donald Trump not look like a political hatchet job. See, guys? Our system is fair. Hunter Biden got slapped on the wrist for his crimes. It’s all gravy, baby.
“Donald Trump had an idea: ‘They’ll hit Hunter with something small to make their strike on me look fair.’ Trump wrote that about two weeks ago,” Carlson said, according to the Daily Caller. “And it turned out those were prescient words. This morning, Hunter Biden pleaded guilty to pretty much nothing. Biden pled to two misdemeanor tax evasion charges and then entered a diversion on a federal gun charge. That’s it. As far as Merrick Garland’s Justice Department is concerned, Hunter Biden is done. There was no pre-dawn raid carried live simultaneously on CNN. There was no perp walk, no handcuffs, no press conference.”
“Above all, there was no felony. Hunter Biden, who broke federal gun laws, can still carry a gun. It’s like it all never happened,” Tucker Carlson added during the show.

The former Fox News host then stated that Hunter Biden will probably never face actual charges for possessing and abandoning his laptop, which contained details concerning his business dealings with oil companies located in both China and Ukraine. The laptop was reportedly “discredited” by the vast majority of federal agencies and mainstream media outlets…until it wasn’t. Yes, in March of 2022, both the New York Times and the Washington Post confirmed that the laptop was indeed real.
The legal team representing Hunter Biden also admitted that the information from the laptop was real in a letter in February 2023.
Later in the episode, Tucker Carlson explained that this plea deal proves that those who are in charge will not face serious consequences for violating the law.
“In the meantime, though, the question is what can we learn from Hunter Biden’s plea deal today? First off, the obvious: For the children of the people in charge, there are no penalties — there are only upsides,” Carlson stated. “They’re princelings: They can do what they want. You are not. Therefore you can’t. So don’t get any ideas about cheating on your taxes or violating federal gun laws unless you want to celebrate next year’s Father’s Day through the glass of the visitor’s room. The rules definitely apply to you, including rules you don’t know yet exist.”
Sad, but very true.
