Over the last few days, Hunter Biden has lost his bid to delay his federal gun trial, tried to get his tax trial postponed, and learned that the benefactor funding his legal defense is out of cash.

But President Joe Biden’s scandal-scarred son is ready for another fight.

His attorney recently sent a legal letter to Fox News threatening to sue the media empire for allegedly conspiring with Trumpland operatives and pro-Russia foreign nationals to defame him, and for exploiting his image for profit.

And in an exclusive interview with The Daily Beast, the 54-year-old blasted Rupert Murdoch’s flagship for using his infamous drug addiction to “dehumanize” him in order to take down his father.

“I’m not saying my addiction is an excuse for my bad behavior. What I’m saying is that my addiction is not an excuse for them to dehumanize me—and in doing so dehumanize everybody from the addict that you pass it on the street, to the one that you live with,” he said.

“That is the principal motivating factor,” Biden said, mocking near-nightly attacks spouted by Fox News personalities, “Addict, addict, addict, addict, you know. Crack addict, he’s a crack addict, smoking crack, addict.”

“Consistent with the First Amendment, Fox News has accurately covered these highly publicized events as well as the subsequent indictment of an FBI informant who was the source of certain claims made about Mr. Biden,” Fox said in response.
