Greg Gutfeld Calls 'Red Herring' Hunter Biden 'Crackhead Porno Goblin'

Fox News' Greg Gutfeld described Hunter Biden as a distraction from what he sees as President Joe Biden's alleged wrongdoings on Friday following an interview the president's son had with Jimmy Kimmel.

Hunter Biden discussed his struggles with drug addiction and responded to some recent criticism from Donald Trump Jr., the eldest son of former President Donald Trump. His memoir, Beautiful Things, was published on Tuesday.

Discussing a laptop that former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani claimed belonged to him and that became a topic late in the 2020 election, Biden said he had the right to question what Giuliani was presenting.

Gutfeld took issue with Biden's comments about Giuliani on Fox News' The Five.

"So a crackhead porno goblin says he can't trust the guy that saved New York," Gutfeld said. "I got a problem with that as well."

"But the one thing he said that was correct was when he said that this was like all a red herring.

"He's kind of right because Hunter Biden is the red herring to steer all of the attention away from his dad and his dad's complicity in a lot of these dealings, and especially the big story, which is China."

"And I got to say, it worked, because I'm a sucker for this stuff. I saw The Daily Mail story when it came out. It sucked 30 minutes out of my day. I read the whole thing. I am as shallow and desirous of every grisly morsel out there," he went on.

"And what that does is it shifts my attention away from the cover-up and the corruption and what the media did, and what social media did. So, I got to hand it to him, it worked," Gutfeld said.

The Daily Mail published explicit photos of Biden this week that the newspaper claimed came from his laptop. They say they have authenticated the laptop that was the subject of major controversy last year.

Hunter Biden told Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday that the laptop was "absolutely a red herring" and said he was within his rights "to question anything that comes from the desk of Rudy Giuliani."

In an earlier interview with the BBC, Hunter Biden said his family named had "opened doors" but said he was qualified for his role on the board of Ukrainian holdings firm Burisma, which was also a subject of criticism in 2020.

During the 2020 election, former President Donald Trump and some of his allies made accusations about Hunter Biden's foreign business dealings—including with China—and suggested that his father was somehow involved. However, no evidence of wrongdoing was ever produced against either man.
