Tucker Carlson released the latest episode of his new show “Tucker On Twitter” Tuesday afternoon.
Captioned, “As in most of the developing world, it’s safer to be the president’s son than his opponent,” the episode focuses on the sweetheart plea deal reached between Joe Biden’s Department of Justice and his son, Hunter, this morning.
Carlson began his latest installment by discussing the alleged “criminal behavior” uncovered in the House Oversight Committee’s probe into the Biden family’s bank records. That allegation, as Tucker explains, was shot down by media, lawmakers, and pundits as “irrelevant,” despite posing a potentially massive scandal for the country’s leader.
Carlson continued by recalling that Biden was even invited for a sitdown with legacy media in which he said, “My son’s done nothing wrong.” Then, weeks later, the James Comer-led committee’s investigations began to uncover more severe allegations of money laundering and even racketeering.
He then brought up former President Donald Trump’s prediction that – as a way to deflect from cries of “weaponization” at the DOJ and the serious allegations levied against the family – the feds would end up giving Hunter a “small charge.”
Trump, Carlson explains, was exactly right.
“This morning, Hunter Biden pleaded guilty to pretty much nothing,” the legendary former Fox News host said. “Biden pled to two misdemeanor tax evasion charges, 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. In fact, the Justice Department just baptized Hunter Biden. A lifetime of sins washed away in an instant,” he continued.

He then described the obviously skewed standards of justice for a figure such as Donald Trump – who is running against Biden, of course – versus the standards for Hunter Biden, who is a “princeling” that needn’t fear the consequences of his actions.
“For the children of the people in charge, there are no penalties. There are only upsides. 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 in the visitor’s room. The rules definitely apply to you, including rules you don’t yet know exist.”
Carlson finished the segment off with a hit on White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, who called herself a “historic figure” over the weekend:
“I’m a historic figure? Imagine saying that! And she says it in a burst of sincere self-congratulation, marked by her signature bad grammar. Illiterate but proud! Of course she’s proud. Karine Jean-Pierre is now a historic figure. Just like Hunter Biden is now an important artist. It makes you feel stupid for going to work.”
