In an unexpected turn of events, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), a well-known critic of President Joe Biden, has voiced his disapproval of Hunter Biden's conviction on multiple gun-related charges.

According to Raw Story, Gaetz, a steadfast ally of former President Donald Trump, expressed his views on the matter, stating, "The Hunter Biden gun conviction is kinda dumb tbh."

This unexpected critique of the Biden verdict by Gaetz has left many of his followers in a state of surprise. A number of them have speculated that President Biden may have deliberately allowed his son to be convicted to further his own political agenda against Trump. One follower noted, "This is the perfect timing for left, what a coincidence! Now they can say there is no two-tiered justice system, avoid Hunter being charged for his more serious crimes leading to his father, and no jail time!"

Others suggested that the gun conviction was merely a smokescreen to divert attention from more serious alleged crimes by Biden. "So many bigger crimes proven on that laptop," claimed one follower.

However, Gaetz's liberal critics were quick to counter his stance. They argued that Gaetz's discontent with the verdict stems from the fact that it undermines his narrative of a biased Department of Justice. Jack Walsh, a Twitter user, commented, "The imbalance here is that Democrats are pretty firmly against committing financial crimes to manipulate elections, whereas Republicans don't like impiety towards their death god who must be sated with the blood of children."


Drexel Heard, another critic, suggested that conservatives might downplay Hunter's conviction to protect their narrative of an 'unfair judicial system.' He stated, "Republicans may/are going to attempt to downplay Hunter’s conviction as 'dumb' because they know this has the potential to backfire on them AND because it shatters their 'unfair judicial system' narrative."
