The Biden White House keeps getting more-and-more corrupt as the days pass.
Not even a year in and suddenly Joe Biden’s embattled son Hunter is not only an artist, but he’s making secret deals with dad to ensure he can keep selling his paintings. Despite the incredible ethics concerns that Hunter would leverage his dad’s position in the White House to increase art sales, they seem to have faded away after a deal struck by the White House and an art dealer.
As part of the deal, Georges Bergès, Hunter Biden’s art dealer, will keep all bidders and buyers of confidential from even the brilliant artist himself. This is apparently the solution drummed up by White House lawyers in order to avoid any legal trouble or ethics issues that could arise from Hunter’s art career.
While the Biden son has never made or sold art before, you’ll have to pay up if you wish to buy one of Hunter’s paintings. The price tag is astronomical, with many of his rudimentary works being sold for between $75,000 and $500,000. That’s a level of grifting not seen since the Clinton Foundation!
“The president has established the highest ethical standards of any administration in American history, and his family’s commitment to rigorous processes like this is a prime example,” deputy White House press secretary told a reporter.
However art critics and government ethics watchdog agencies are simply not buying it.
Former chief ethics lawyer for the Bush administration said, “The whole thing is a really bad idea,”
“Those are really high prices for a first-time painter. Everyone’s initial reaction will be of shock when they realize the president’s son is capitalizing off his father’s position in the White House.”
Who is stopping a foreign government from sending an gent to buy one of Hunter’s paintings to earn the ear of the president? It wouldn’t be the first time a deal of this kind was made between Hunter and Joe.
While the White House deal will reportedly keep buyers and bidders secret from Hunter Biden himself, a former director of the Office of Government Ethics under President Barack Obama, Walter Shaub, is skeptical.
“Because we don’t know who is paying for this art, and we don’t know for sure that [Hunter Biden] knows, we have no way of monitoring whether people are buying access to the White House,” Shaub said.
“What these people are paying for is Hunter Biden’s last name.”
Hunter Biden’s first solo auction will sell 15 paintings from $75,000 to $500,000 in Georges Bergès’ Gallery in Soho, New York, in October after a private viewing for VIP collectors in Los Angeles in September, potentially netting the president’s first son millions as a first-time painter in an industry known for starving artists.
“A lot of people say they can paint and do sculpture, but what I was concerned about was whether Hunter’s work would be authentic,” Bergès, 45, reporters.
“Everyone thinks that Hunter just landed on the art scene but this has been years in the making.”
Bergès has helped Hunter Biden, 51, a self-taught painter, for three years, he revealed.
The above deal with the White House comes with the condition Bergès will reject suspicious bids and keep buyers’ identities from Hunter Biden.
