During the latest episode of his “Tucker on Twitter” show, former Fox News host Tucker Carlson called out Hunter Biden and the double standard of justice after the president’s son was given a plea deal for crimes that any other American would have been imprisoned for.
Hunter Biden has reportedly agreed to plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges, and his only punishment will be probation and paying back the taxes he owes. In regard to lying on a gun purchase form, Hunter will not be punished at all — and will instead enter into a diversion program.
Critics have blasted the plea deal, arguing that it proves that there is a “two-tiered system of justice” — citing the difference between the sweetheart deal and the persecution of former President Donald Trump.

Carlson spoke about this in the latest episode of his new Twitter show, sharing the video with the caption: “As in most of the developing world, it’s safer to be the president’s son than his opponent.”
“This morning Hunter Biden pleaded guilty to pretty much nothing. 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,” the former Fox News host said in the video.
“There was no pre-dawn raid carried out 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,” Carlson continued.
“In fact, the Justice Department just baptized Hunter Biden. A lifetime of sins washed away in an instant. It was a secular miracle!” he added.
Carlson later concluded that the only reason Hunter Biden was given special treatment is because he’s President Joe Biden’s son.
“For the children of the people in charge, there are no penalties, there are only upsides,” he said.
“They’re princelings, they can do what they want,” Carlson added. “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 visitors’ room. The rules definitely apply to you, including rules you don’t yet know exist.”
