( – Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz (Florida) took to X, formerly Twitter, minutes after the guilty verdict for Hunter Biden was reached, to describe the federal gun charges against President Joe Biden’s son as “kinda dumb.”

On Tuesday afternoon, after the jury ended its three-hour deliberation, Hunter Biden, the President’s second-oldest son, was convicted on all three federal gun charges.

The felony gun charges detail how Hunter Biden lied about being sober to illegally obtain a gun in 2018, and then illegally had the firearm in his possession for 11 days.

The guilty verdict against Hunter comes two weeks after a 12-person jury in Manhattan found former President Donald Trump guilty of 34 felony counts of falsifying business records.

After Trump’s conviction, Gaetz released a scathing statement declaring the former President’s conviction “the corrupt result of a corrupt trial,” judge, and District attorney.

Gaetz’s remarks about the charges against Hunter Biden being “kinda dumb,” comes as the former President’s campaign dismissed the conviction of the President’s son as “a distraction.”

In a campaign email on Tuesday, Karoline Leavitt, the national press secretary for the Trump campaign, suggested the conviction was “nothing more than a distraction” to divert from the “real crimes” committed by “the Biden Crime Family.”

She claimed the Biden’s had “raked in” millions from Russia, China, and Ukraine.

Hunter Biden faces $750,000 in fines and up to 25 years in prison for the felony gun charges.

President Joe Biden has also revealed he wouldn’t be pardoning his son, stating he would “accept” the case’s outcome and “respect the judicial process” as his son pursues an appeal.
