Megyn Kelly criticized President Joe Biden for openly supporting his son Hunter.

"It’s not appropriate for a sitting president of the United States to be commenting on any sort of a criminal case," she added. "I said this last week when he commented on Trump. Stay out of it! Stop it!"

"The Trump case still has to go up on appeal, your son’s case is in the process of jury selection. So be quiet! Shut up!" she said firmly. "Pipe down, you don’t have to comment on everything."

"Hunter’s resilience in the face of adversity and the strength he has brought to his recovery are inspiring to us," he said at the time. "As the President, I don’t and won’t comment on pending federal cases, but as a Dad, I have boundless love for my son, confidence in him, and respect for his strength."

The 54-year-old pleaded not guilty to illegally purchasing and possessing a weapon after allegedly lying on the application regarding drug use.

On Tuesday, June 4, opening statements for the high-profile trial began. Hunter's defense lawyer Abbe Lowell gave a lengthy statement claiming that the evidence did not support that his client had actually been using illicit substances at the time when he purchased the gun.

He also alleged, "The gun was never loaded. It was never carried around."
