“This is not satire,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) declared Thursday, in a social media post commenting on a “Babylon Bee” piece mocking the Justice Department’s determination to ignore the growing number of serious scandals involving First Son Hunter Biden.

Cruz posted a link to “Relieved Biden Family Celebrates Hunter Only Being Indicted On Gun Charges” (

The satirical piece includes “quotes” from Biden family members and a “source” expressing relief that Hunter wasn’t indicted on more serious charges, such as the contents of his infamous laptop, bribery, sex trafficking, drug dealing, or conspiracy to defraud the United States, treason:

”‘This will definitely cramp Hunter's style a little bit,’ said one family source. ‘But come on. He's not only a Democrat, but he's also a Biden. He's untouchable. He'll be back out on the street, smoking a crack pipe and taking selfies with hookers before you know it.’”

As MRCTV reported, Hunter Biden was indicted on three gun charges on Thursday, after a sweetheart deal he was previously given, which would have enabled him to avoid jail time, was rejected by a judge.
