As the son of the president, Hunter Biden is entitled to protection from the Secret Service. The same rule applied to Trump’s children.
However, in order to protect Hunter Biden, the Secret Service is renting a California mansion that costs $30,000 per month.
Isn’t that just a tad excessive? These are taxpayer dollars.
ABC News reports:
Secret Service paying over $30K per month for Malibu mansion to protect Hunter Biden
Hunter Biden is apparently spending his father’s presidency living in luxury in Malibu — and so is his taxpayer-funded security detail.
The Secret Service detail protecting the president’s controversial son has been paying more than $30,000 a month to rent out a swanky Malibu, California, mansion for nearly a year, sources familiar with the matter tell ABC News.
The agency responsible for protecting the president and his family — among other ranking government officials — selected the property in order to be located as close as possible to Biden’s own rented mansion where he is paying about $20,000 a month according to property listings, sources told ABC News.
Retired senior Secret Service agent Don Mihalek, now an ABC News contributor, said the arrangement is “the cost of doing business for the Secret Service,” adding that under the federal law, the agency has a mandated protective responsibility for the president, the first family, and anybody else the president designates for protection.
“Typically, wherever a protectee sets up their residence, the Secret Service is forced to find someplace to rent nearby at market value,” Mihalek said, noting that the agency is also renting out properties to protect President Joe Biden’s residences in Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
Hunter Biden is the gift that keeps on giving. To Republicans.
The book “Laptop from Hell” does an excellent job documenting some of the truly reprehensible things Hunter has done because of his dad’s clout. It’s amazing how Biden has been able to swing his son’s story into one that is praised by most people, all because they hate Trump.

All the people who criticized Trump over Secret Service costs are now silent about Hunter Biden.
