DeSantis baffled when asked if he'd pardon Hunter Biden during NBC interview: 'Why? No!'

Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis was baffled when asked whether he would pardon Hunter Biden as president during an interview with NBC News Thursday.

DeSantis was pressed by NBC’s Dasha Burns about his past comments saying he was open to potentially pardoning former President Trump, who awaits trial later this year for two federal indictments over his handling of classified documents and his involvement leading up to the events of Jan. 6, in addition to two other rounds of state-level charges. 

The GOP hopeful explained that pardoning Trump could help “move the country forward” and cited former President Ford’s pardoning of his ousted predecessor Richard Nixon as a way to “heal the country.”
