Twitter broadcaster Tucker Carlson read a personal letter from Joe Biden to Devon Archer written in January 2011 during a Wednesday interview on his online show.

"I apologize for not getting a chance to talk to you at the luncheon yesterday," Carlson's recitation began. "I was having trouble getting away from hosting President Hu (Jintao, who’s running China at that point). I hope I get a chance to see you again soon with Hunter. I hope you enjoyed lunch. Thanks for coming. Sincerely, Joseph R. Biden, Jr. P.S. (handwritten) Happy you guys are together."

Archer called the letter "lovely," while Carlson characterized it as "weird."

“Well, it was,” he admitted. “Listen, it was, it was kind of the beginning of our partnership.”

“And he was thanking me and thanking Hunter, I think, at the end of the day, for bringing this idea of this government regulatory strategic advisory business into the private equity world,” Archer explained. “And I think he was excited about the prospects for Hunter. And, you know, he was just, just thanking me. I think it was a nice gesture.”

Archer went on to admit that Hunter was in the business of selling access, particularly to his father when he was vice president.
