Sen. John Kennedy says Biden lectures on privilege ‘like being lectured about gun safety by Alec Baldwin’

 August 28, 2023

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA), in a recent interview, drew parallels between President Joe Biden's discourse on privilege and seemingly incongruent actions within his own family.

Kennedy sharply commented on Biden's family, stating that for Americans to receive lectures on "privilege" from Biden felt "like being lectured about gun safety by Alec Baldwin," as the Daily Wire reported.

The "Privilege" Issue

During a recent appearance on Fox News' Hannity, Kennedy delved into topics surrounding President Biden's son, Hunter Biden and his recent legal entanglements, suggesting that the entire saga was centered on a blend of "privilege and sleaze."

Kennedy further stated that, in his opinion, Hunter is the prime example of "privilege."

The senator said, "Huntergate is about two things: privilege and sleaze."

He continued, "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 did not mince words when he highlighted what he perceived as the contrast between the lectures on privilege and the evident privilege within the Biden family.

"They never mention Hunter Biden, who is the epitome of privilege," Kennedy remarked.

Turning his attention to the financial dealings of the first son, Kennedy queried, "How did Hunter Biden earn those millions of dollars?"

He was alluding to the financial gains the younger Biden made from overseas business transactions and his tenure on the board of Burisma Holdings.

He also questioned Hunter's judgment concerning the notorious laptop he allegedly left with an unknown individual, considering its sensitive contents.

Kennedy asked, "How smart is it to try to deduct your hookers on your federal income tax?"

He added, "The next time we are lectured about privilege, I want people to remember that."

White House Stance on Hunter's Actions

Shifting gears, Kennedy delved into the administration's perspective, that, out of paternal affection, Joe Biden might have only had benign conversations with Hunter and his business associates, likening it to casual chats "about the weather."

Kennedy suggested that those who accepted such a narrative might never achieve homeownership.

He emphasized that, at the very least, the evidence from the House and contributions from Iowa Senator Chucky Grassley in the Senate strongly indicate that President Biden was fully informed of his son's activities and actively supported them.

The senator concluded by stating that the House should be permitted to uncover the truth in its investigation regarding the Bidens. He further emphasized that it should be left to the courts to determine guilt or innocence, embodying true "justice."
