Hunter Biden isn’t an artist, but he plays one now because that seems to be a way to make some quick money the old-fashioned Democrat way: Anonymously.
As you may have heard, Hunter the Crack Addict, who had his pick of women and hookers back in the day but instead chose to shack up with his deceased brother’s widow, is now the second coming of Michaelangelo or something.
He’s so good, in fact, he’s already selling his ‘art’. But we don’t know to whom or how much these ‘art collectors’ are paying.
But we hear it’s a lot.
Joe Biden’s angry little flak, Jen Psaki, told us just this week it wasn’t anybody’s business, really, what the president’s son did with his time or how much he sold his ‘works’ for — or to whom.
So much for ‘transparency.’
But others who aren’t “right-wing extremists” also have a problem with this arrangement, including Walter Shaub, Barack Obama’s ethics chief (yeah, we know — where was he when Obama was pulling the stuff he pulled?).
'I mean, they have outsourced Government Ethics to an art dealer. She mentioned industry standards. It's an industry that's notorious for money laundering,' Shaub told CNN Friday.
'There's no standards in that industry, and the idea that they're going to flag any overly priced offers, well this is art that hasn't even been juried into a community art sale. How is, how are they going to decide what's unreasonable when they've already priced it in the range of $75,000 to $500,000 for a first outing? This is just preposterous and very disappointing,” he added.
Yes, it is — to say the least.
Shaub went on to say that there is nothing that can be done to keep tabs on the situation to 'make sure that Hunter Biden or anyone in the White House doesn't find out, that the dealer keeps his or her promise that the buyers don't call the White House, ask for a meeting and say, 'Hey, I just bought the President's son's art for $500,000.''
He added that Hunter Biden's artwork scam is 'a perfect mechanism for funneling bribes to' the president.
And par for the Democratic course.
