Tucker Carlson weighs in on Hunter Biden’s sweet deal.
Tucker Carlson devoted his Twitter monologue today to the Hunter Biden plea deal, pointing out how Hunter got this deal the same way he has gotten everything in life, through his family name.
He slams attempts by the liberal media to spin this story for Joe Biden ahead of the charges, notes the double standard from the Justice Department, and much more.
The Daily Caller has details:
Biden agreed to plead guilty to charges of illegally purchasing a gun while under the influence of drugs and for failing to pay his taxes in 2017 and 2018. Carlson said Weiss prosecuted the younger Biden to make the 37-count indictment against former President Donald Trump appear fair and non-political.
“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. “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.”…
“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 said.
“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,” he continued.

People are enjoying Tucker’s new format.
.@TuckerCarlson is breaking the news cycle.
Instead of waiting for Fox to approve a story for his evening newscast, he can now put it out on twitter before the MSM shows can even get their talking points straight.
Tucker is setting the narrative.
He is winning. https://t.co/TWy8zDzOPc

Tucker gets it. Biden has weaponized the DOJ the same way 3rd world Dictators do, to target his political opposition and protect his corrupt family. https://t.co/bHjl34KO28

One of the beautiful things about Tucker on Twitter is he usually posts around 6pm CST.
But if it's important he can just post it sooner.
That's dope. https://t.co/LgiVKHu94C

Over at Twitchy, they’re keeping track of Tucker’s numbers:
At this point, it is up to four million views. So this is where we are, view-wise:
Episode 1: 118 million views.
Episode 2: 59.3 million views.
Episode 3: 100 million views.
Episode 4: 30.2 million views.
So that gives you some idea of the staying power of this venture.
Pretty impressive stats for a guy doing a one-man show out of his barn.
