Hunter Biden, 52, is no different from Barron Trump, 16, and should be shielded from public criticism "regardless of the veracity of the allegations" against him, an aspiring Democratic politician said Sunday.
Allen B. Glines, who runs the Allen B. Glines Center for Public Advocacy and briefly sought the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate in Utah before withdrawing, slammed Republican lawmakers for "harassing" the adult son of President Joe Biden and argued the former crack fiend should sue them "for defamation and get restraining orders."
"They quaked and whined whenever Barron Trump's name was mentioned, but they're fine with a relentless campaign against Biden's son," Glines wrote on Twitter, the popular social networking website. Barron, the youngest son of former president Donald Trump, was 10 years old when his father took office and has not been credibly accused of tax fraud, money laundering, and peddling influence in the form of shady deals with America's enemies.
Accordingly, a Washington Free Beacon analysis has determined that comparing Hunter Biden to Barron Trump is not appropriate.
Just last week, for example, White House press secretary Jen Psaki dodged a series of legitimate questions about the president's son following a New York Times report on the ongoing Justice Department inquiry into Hunter's international business dealings. Among other things, Psaki declined to say whether Hunter had divested his stake in an investment fund tied to the Chinese government.
The lawyer representing one of Hunter's former lovers said Thursday he expects the First Son to be indicted for tax fraud. "Just based on what I saw in his financial records, I would be surprised if he's not indicted," attorney Clint Lancaster told CNBC. Lancaster represents Lunden "Dallas" Roberts, a former stripper and the mother of Hunter's three-year-old daughter. President Biden has repeatedly refused to acknowledge the child's existence.
Glines suggested that even if the allegations against Hunter are true, it "should not be okay" for Republicans to criticize him. He went on to describe GOP lawmakers' concerns regarding the potential corruption and influence peddling by the president's adult son as "just sad." (Perhaps not as sad as comparing a 52-year-old man to a defenseless teenager.)
"Regardless of the veracity of the allegations against any member of any elected official's family, it should not be okay, let alone encouraged, for an entire political party to go after said family like the GOP has for the past several years with Hunter Biden," Glines wrote. "The GOP has been cooking up stuff against Hunter Biden for over two years. It didn't get Trump re-elected and now it's just sad. If GOP leadership wasn't so corrupt and brainless, they would've put a stop to it by now."
In addition to the allegations of corruption and tax fraud, Hunter is best known for smoking crack in the VIP room of a renowned Washington, D.C., gentleman's club, for going to extraordinary lengths to console his brother Beau's widow, and for being honored as a 2019 Washington Free Beacon Man of the Year.
