In the art world, some people work hard for years and never get the break they need in order to be successful. It’s a very competitive field and it’s hard to make a decent living doing it.
Unless you’re Hunter Biden, of course.
Then you just decide you’re an artist and will sell your work for tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.
This is such an obvious scam, but naturally the Biden White House is defending it.
FOX News reports:
White House defends Hunter Biden’s art selling scheme: ‘He has the right to pursue an artistic career’
The White House Friday defended a deal it brokered to allow Hunter Biden’s artwork, which could be listed as high as $500,000 each, to sell to anonymous buyers and with no disclosure to the public.
“After careful consideration, a system has been established that allows for Hunter Biden to work in his profession within reasonable safeguards,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Friday. “Of course, he has the right to pursue an artistic career just like any child of a president has the right to pursue a career.”
Biden, 51, has embarked on a new career path as an artist and will sell his paintings at upcoming exhibitions in Los Angeles and New York. But in order to avoid an appearance of outsiders trying to peddle influence with the Biden family, the White House crafted an agreement to keep the names of the buyers confidential from Biden himself, The Washington Post first reported.
The deal raised plenty of red flags by ethics watchdogs.

If this was one of Trump’s kids, the media would lose their minds.
Hunter Biden gets a pass because his father is a Democrat. It’s really that simple.
