Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) let President Joe Biden’s family have it during a recent appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity,” saying that Americans being lectured about “privilege” by Biden was “like being lectured about gun safety by Alec Baldwin.”

Kennedy argued that the case surrounding President Biden’s embattled son Hunter Biden was primarily rooted in the intersection of “privilege and sleaze,” and went on to lay out how he believed Hunter was the prime example of “privilege.”


“Huntergate is about two things: privilege and sleaze,” Kennedy began. “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.”

Kennedy went on to point out that while the president and other members of his party routinely lecture Americans about privilege, “they never mention Hunter Biden, who is the epitome of privilege.”

“How did Hunter Biden earn those millions of dollars?” Kennedy asked then, referencing money the younger Biden had raked in through foreign business deals and time spent on the board of Burisma Holding. He then asked how smart Hunter could have been if he surrendered the now infamous laptop to a stranger despite the sensitive – and incriminating information — he’d stored on it.

“How smart is it to try to deduct your hookers on your federal income tax?” he asked. “The next time we are lectured about privilege, I want people to remember that.”

Kennedy then pivoted to his second point, saying that he knew the White House’s position was that Joe Biden had called Hunter and talked to his business partners “about the weather” because he was such a devoted father.

“If you believe that, you will never own your own home,” Kennedy said. “At a minimum. At a minimum, the evidence brought forth by the House and by Senator Grassley, by the way, in the Senate, is clarion clear that President Biden was well aware of what his son was doing, and he aggressively enabled it.”
