Instant karma: Biden’s plan to label Trump a “felon” flops following Hunter’s conviction
06/16/2024 // Ramon Tomey // Views

President Joe Biden's plan to label former President Donald Trump a "felon" has flopped following the conviction of Hunter Biden on gun charges.

Biden's campaign dubbed Trump as a "convicted felon" after the real estate mogul was found guilty on all 34 counts of falsification of business records. But the president's second son was likewise convicted just over a week later. A jury found Hunter guilty of violating federal gun laws after he illegally purchased a firearm during a period when he was taking cocaine. "Jurors delivered their verdict after deliberating for three hours, capping a one-week trial in a prosecution brought by his father's own [Department of Justice]," Bloomberg News reported.

According to the news outlet, the younger Biden's conviction serves as "a personal and political blow to his father." This guilty verdict on gun-related charges, alongside a potential tax-related conviction in September, threatens to hang over the elder Biden's campaign and poses "a painful messaging test in his race against Trump."

"I am the president, but I am also a dad. [First Lady] Jill and I love our son, and we are so proud of the man he is today," Joe said in a statement moments after the guilty verdict was announced. "So many families who have had loved ones battle addiction understand the feeling of pride seeing someone you love come out the other side and be so strong and resilient in recovery."

Joe Biden: NO PARDON for convicted son Hunter

The elder Biden continued that he would "respect the judicial process" as his son considers an appeal. He continued that he and Jill "will always be there for Hunter and the rest of the family with our love and support," and that "nothing will ever change that. The president has earlier remarked that he won't use his powers as chief executive to exonerate his son. (Related: White House press secretary: No presidential pardon for Hunter Biden.)

Some political strategists predicted that Biden could use Trump's guilty verdict to appeal to independents and undecided voters as Election Day nears. But John Malcolm, vice president of the Heritage Foundation's Institute for Constitutional Government, pointed out that a guilty verdict for Hunter would undermine that approach. "That's going to blunt the sting of the Trump conviction, although how much I don't know," he told Bloomberg News.

Meanwhile, Trump's campaign released a statement in response to the presidential son's conviction. The statement described Hunter's trial "a distraction from the real crimes" of his father, and reiterated the corruption of the Biden crime family.

The incumbent president previously castigated Trump as "dangerous" and "irresponsible" for claiming that the hush money trial that yielded his conviction was rigged. The trial presided by Merchan stemmed from payments made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels (born Stephanie Clifford) to maintain her silence about an alleged affair she had with Trump.

Aside from this, Trump faces three additional criminal indictments – though the trials are unlikely to happen before the November election. The former president has denounced his prosecutions as politically motivated and orchestrated by the elder Biden.
