In the past three years, since Joe Biden left the Obama White House, he has made Over $15 million dollars. That’s an average of five million per year.
We don’t begrudge Biden his financial success, but isn’t this considered a bad thing on the left?
CBS News reports:
Bidens earned over $15 million since 2016
According to financial disclosures and tax returns provided by the campaign, former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Dr. Jill Biden have earned more than $15 million since 2016.
The majority of the income comes from book deals and speaking engagements, with the Bidens earning around $9.5 million in 2017, the year after Biden left office. That year, the Bidens donated more than a million dollars to charity, according to the documents.
On the campaign trail, Biden regularly touts his middle-class bona fides by referring to his nickname “Middle-Class Joe,” a nod to his more modest upbringing in Pennsylvania and Delaware. He has centered his campaign on fighting for the middle class, even though he may now be one of the wealthiest Democrats in the presidential field.
Since leaving office, both Bidens have worked as college professors. Jill Biden taught at Northern Virginia Community College and made more than $180,000 in two years, while her husband was named the “Benjamin Franklin presidential practice professor” at the University of Pennsylvania, earning more than $775,000 in two years.
The couple paid a roughly 33 percent federal income tax rate in the past two filing years.
Biden is still polling best among the Democrats running but not everyone on the left is happy about it.
Especially Rosie O’Donnell.

Rosie O’Donnell Suggests 2020 Job For Joe Biden, But It’s Not President
Former Vice President Joe Biden may no longer be the Democrats’ unequivocal frontrunner, but still remains ahead in the polls.
Nevertheless, Rosie O’Donnell explained Tuesday why she thinks Biden should actually sit out the election.
The TV personality told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that Biden should “be an elder statesman” and utilize his decades of experience to advise whoever ends up taking on President Donald Trump.
Watch out, Joe.
The far left is coming for you.
