Many people grew concerned when it came out that Joe Biden’s disgraced, corrupt son, Hunter, was entering the art world. You might remember Hunter as the man who cashed in on his father’s name again and again in the business world. He got fat investments and jobs from foreign nations, while his dad was vice president. Nobody in the media batted an eye.
But I guess all those business opportunities have dried up. Because, despite having zero experience or credibility, Hunter decided to start selling art. Ethics officials, including those who worked with Obama, claimed this created a massive conflict of interest. A president’s son selling artwork to wealthy strangers. How can this not create a problem with the White House?
Us foolish masses don’t have to worry, though. Hunter Biden is not even remotely involved in anything shady. Even as the White House released a report complaining about money laundering.
The White House flagged money laundering in the art industry on Monday as a point of corruption while allowing Hunter Biden to sell his artwork to anonymous buyers for as much as $500,000.
The first report of its kind named the United States Strategy on Countering Corruption is geared towards exploring the ways and means “government officials abuse public power for private gain.”

The level of hypocrisy and corruption coming from the White House in this area is beyond the pale. The administration claimed that there was no possible way Hunter’s dubious art career would affect the presidency. Yet they have kept the names of his sellers a secret, increasing the likelihood that they are getting special favors from Joe.
At the same time this is going on, the White House releases a report damning the art industry for the very thing many believe Hunter Biden is doing. The administration even complained about “government officials abuse public power for private gain.”
Uh… are that they lacking in self-awareness? Hunter Biden and his father have been doing this thing for years. Hunter got a sweet deal from China—millions of dollars in investments—just as his father was negotiating with the country. Joe Biden got Ukraine to fire a man investigating a company Hunter was working for, despite his lack of experience in the industry.
Now, Hunter is selling garbage artwork for $500,000 a pop. The names of the buyers are being hidden, so we have no idea who they are. They could be getting direct access to the president, but we’ll never know.
Yet the White House is complaining about other people scheming the art world? Give me a break.
If anything even remotely shady like this was going on during the Trump administration, the media would be having a meltdown. The FBI, the SEC, and nearly every other law enforcement body would be going after Trump and his son. Yet Biden and his crooked family can literally break the law in front of us and nothing happens.
