President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, said on Friday that Republicans are “trying to kill” him. Speaking on musician Moby’s podcast “Moby Pod,” he also alleged that Republicans are trying to lure him into a substance abuse relapse all in a bid to end his father’s presidency.

“I recognize that none of this is necessarily about me. They are trying to in their most illegitimate way, but rational way, they’re trying to destroy a presidency. And so it’s not about me and their most base way, what they’re trying to do is they’re trying to kill me knowing that it will be a pain greater than my father could be able to handle and so therefore destroying the presidency in that way,” he claimed.

In addition to realizing that the supposed warfare is political, he added that Republicans are “just sad, very, very sick people that have most likely just faced traumas in their lives, that they’ve decided that they are going to turn into an evil that they decide that they’re going to inflict on the rest of the world.”

He then promised to “survive” the public campaign against him, stating, “I’m gonna survive it clean and sober, is because I am not gonna let these motherf——, OK, use me as just another example of why people in recovery are never gonna be OK, never to be trusted, they’re all degenerates — I’m just not gonna let that happen.”

During the interview, the president’s son also came after billionaire tech entrepreneur and X owner Elon Musk. According to Hunter, Musk is a “very damaged human being” as well as “the dumbest smart person I think that the world has ever known.”

He also accused Musk of not caring about freedom of speech even though he positions himself as a champion for free speech. He went further, stating “Elon Musk doesn’t care about democracy. Elon Musk doesn’t care about our freedom to vote. He doesn’t care about that. Is there any time that you’ve ever saw anything from him that has any rational defense of democracy of what we’ve created here as Americans as his adopted country?”

While Hunter’s rant was recorded before Friday, it was released a day after he was charged with nine tax-related charges which include three felony counts and six misdemeanors.
