Florida Governor Ron DeSantis slammed the Biden Department of Justice on Friday after news broke that U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss to be special counsel in the Hunter Biden criminal investigation after Weiss previously agreed to a highly controversial plea deal that was thrown out in court.

“Just saw the news about the Hunter Biden Special Counsel,” DeSantis told reporters in Iowa. “Just seems to me that they’re going to find a way to give him some type of soft glove treatment. And I don’t understand why you would appoint this guy to be the special counsel. But we’ve come to expect that.”

“And so I think that there was a lot that he’s done, particularly with the corruption, that really should be pursued,” he added. “I just have not seen that. I’m not confident that this arrangement is going to lead to that, but it should.”

DeSantis later addressed the issue while talking on stage to voters at an event in the Hawkeye State.

“You know, you see this stuff with Hunter Biden and it’s like, if he were Republican … he’d be in jail by now. And we all know that,” DeSantis said. “You know, the good thing about us is, you know, my kids are six, five and three, so they ain’t going to be bringing any cocaine into the White House when I’m president. Don’t worry about that. There may be some finger paint. There may be some stuff that happens, but it’s going to be G-rated.”

DeSantis joked that his six-year-old daughter was a better artist than Hunter Biden and so the family should try selling her paintings since Hunter Biden has been able to bring in millions of dollars by selling his artwork.
