Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) told Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” that Hunter Biden epitomizes the white privilege that his father, President Joe Biden, and the media preach about.
Kennedy told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that the DOJ’s double standard in dealing with the first son’s crimes is about “privilege and sleaze.”
“Well, it seems to me, Sean, that Hunter-gate is about two things: privilege and sleaze,” Kennedy said. “First, the privilege, President Biden and many members of the media lecture us incessantly about the injustice of privilege, especially so-called white privilege. But, to me, that’s like being lectured about gun safety by Alec Baldwin. Because when they lecture us about privilege, they never mention Hunter Biden, who is the epitome of privilege.”
Kennedy added that Hunter earned millions of dollars in foreign income because of his privilege. The lawmaker questioned Ukrainian and Chinese companies’ decision to pay the first son millions of dollars.
“Did the Ukrainian and Chinese companies pick Mr. Hunter Biden because they were impressed with his resume on ZipRecruiter? No, it was his daddy,” Kenedy added. “It was always about his daddy. Hunter Biden is just a vessel. He’s just a lucky sperm. And the next time that you are lectured — we are lectured about privilege, I want people to remember that.”
When Democrats lecture Americans about “privilege,” they always seem to leave out Hunter Biden.

The GOP lawmaker told Hannity that the “sleaze” surrounding the Biden family would make any fair-minded person gag. Kennedy hilariously added that anyone who believes Joe Biden only called into business meetings with Hunter and his foreign business associates to discuss the weather would never own a home.
The White House is trying to argue that Pres. Biden is just a good family man who regularly calls into his son’s business meetings to talk about the weather.

“At a minimum, the evidence brought forth by the House —and by Senator Grassley, by the way, in the Senate — is clear that President Biden was well aware of what his son was doing and he aggressively enabled it. And that’s sleazy,” Kenedy added.
The Justice Department has spent the last five years investigating Hunter Biden’s crime but has still not indicted the first son. Kennedy said he believes Special Counsel David Weiss, who currently oversees the Hunter Biden investigation, is “severely compromised.”
