In a shockingly brazen attempt to cash in, Hunter Biden started “making art,” to sell to the highest bidder.
Many saw the obvious problem, that people who buy the art of a president’s son would have influence over Joe Biden.
The White House claimed that would not happen. Hunter wouldn’t even know who was buying his art.
Except, that was clearly a load of garbage.
From Western Journal:
Unfortunately, those assurances fell apart Thursday after it was revealed that Hunter Biden would meet with prospective buyers, thus dropping any pretense of anonymity…
“Oh yes. With pleasure,” gallery spokeswoman Robin Davis said when asked whether Hunter Biden will be attending. “He’s looking forward to it. It is like someone debuting in the world. And of course he will be there,” she said.
Hunter will not only know who buys his suspect art, but he will be seeing them at two private shows this fall.
Now, Obama’s former ethics chief is blasting the administration.
From Daily Wire:
Walter Shaub, the former director of Obama’s Office of Government Ethics, slammed the Biden administration on Thursday over its repeated claims that it has established the “highest ethical standards of any administration in American history” by pointing out the continued controversy surrounding the selling of Hunter Biden’s suspiciously high-priced artwork.
Can you believe that? Biden claims he has set the “highest ethical standards of any administration in American history.”
Not only is he saying he’s ethical, but he’s also claiming to be the most ethical president ever.
This from a man who canceled an American pipeline but supports a Russian pipeline? A man who wants to give Iran nukes? A man who turned our border into a revolving door for drug cartels?
How does anyone believe Hunter Biden’s little art scheme isn’t a scam? The man has zero experience or reputation in the art world. Of course, he’s exploiting his father’s office to get attention.
The real worry is that the people who buy his art will have instant influence over the president.
And the White House isn’t even pretending like they are trying to stop it.
If Biden was really the most ethical president ever, he wouldn’t have allowed his son to sell his art.
I can only imagine that if Obama’s kids made art, they would have at least auctioned it off to charity.
But for a man from a rich, powerful family to sell his pathetic art for profit? How can we not see this as a pay-for-play scheme?
For Obama’s ethics chief to blast him, you know this isn’t a partisan issue. Both liberals and conservatives are concerned.
Do you think Congress will do anything about it?
- The White House goes back on its word, allowing Hunter Biden to meet his art buyers.
- Obama’s former ethics chief criticized Biden for going back on his promise.
- This comes as Biden claims to be the most ethical president in our history.
