During a recent interview, the president's son, Hunter Biden, labelled Elon Musk as "the dumbest smart person". He also expressed his belief that the Tesla CEO is indifferent to the principles of free speech and democracy.

The accusations against Elon Musk emerged during Hunter Biden's conversation on the Moby Podcast. Hunter accused the tycoon of disseminating misinformation about him, as reported by the British newspaper, "The Independent". Furthermore, he depicted the billionaire as "an extremely damaged human being".

Musk retorted via the social network X, formerly known as Twitter. "Exactly what "misinformation" is he talking about? The dude made so many videos of himself doing crime that he should get an award for cinematography!" - wrote Musk, pointing to the recordings discovered on a laptop that Hunter Biden had left at a computer service shop in Delaware in 2019.

During the extensive 80-minute interview, Hunter Biden charged Musk with ignorance of law and the constitution, along with hypocrisy. "Elon Musk doesn't care about democracy, nor does he care about our voting rights. Have you ever seen him take a stand that was intelligently focused on defending democracy?" he asked rhetorically.

In the same podcast interview, Hunter Biden also accused Republicans of targeting him with the intent of undermining his father's presidency. Last week, Special Prosecutor David Weiss filed an additional nine charges against the president's son for financial crimes. If convicted, he may face a sentence of up to 17 years in prison.
