It has been almost a year since Big Tech censored a scandalous story about Hunter Biden in an apparent attempt to save his father’s campaign from scrutiny — and President Joe Biden hasn’t been held to account for his family’s corruption since.
That may explain why the president has continued to flagrantly sell influence through his son while angrily shouting at anyone who questions his family’s integrity. In the latest example, Joe Biden snapped at a reporter who asked about Hunter’s sleazy art deals, whining, “You got to be kidding me,” before walking away, according to The Daily Wire.

“The deal’s not going to be secret”
For months, Hunter Biden’s budding art career has attracted a lot of attention and scrutiny, as many have assumed that his upcoming auction in New York City is a front for influence peddling.
Although the White House has said that he will not be told who is buying his art, few are buying that nonsense, especially after Hunter sold several reproductions of his pieces at $75,000 — his originals are going for up to $500,000 — and even chatted with potential customers at his first art show in Los Angeles, the New York Post reported.
The city’s sleazebag mayor and Joe Biden’s nominee to be ambassador to India, Eric Garcetti, was in attendance.
“It shows the deal’s not going to be secret,” Richard Painter, George W. Bush’s top ethics lawyer, said, according to The Daily Wire. He said the White House should go to “Plan B” and not allow Hunter’s art to be sold until the Biden administration ends, or at least allow “full transparency.”
But finger-wagging has done little to deter a president who has pushed the limits of his constitutional authority while reimagining the meaning of the word “audacity” when it comes to his family’s conflicts of interest.
Joe Biden’s brazen corruption
The sordid business has angered even Obama shills like former ethics official Walter Shaub, who shared his amazement at the “chutzpah” after the White House said that the buyers will be kept hidden from the public, not just Hunter Biden. “Imagine the chutzpah it takes to sell that mess as an ethics ‘win,’” Schaub remarked, as The Daily Wire reported.
The White House has maintained that Joe Biden is the most ethical president in American history and that any concerns of corruption are misplaced. According to the New York Post, the art auction will supposedly be thoroughly vetted and Hunter Biden has a team of lawyers to make sure everything stays on the level — but given the family’s track record, that’s not exactly reassuring.
The president is obviously in no hurry to be upfront with the American people, but with a media this in the tank, does he have any reason to be?
