Hunter Biden isn’t happy that people aren’t responding well to his latest money-making scheme in the art world. For those unaware, the scandal-ridden Biden son is now an artist and he’s selling his pieces for upwards of half a million dollars, not too shabby for a newcomer to the art world.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand that the price tag associated with Biden’s art has more to do with his last name than any actual talent he may or may not possess. However, Biden is so delusional that he simply doesn’t see it that way and when he was asked about it on the art podcast Nota Bene he had two words for the critics: “F*** ’em.”
According to Fox News:
“I never said what my art was going to cost or how much it would be priced at,” Biden told hosts Nate Freeman and Benjamin Godsill.
“I’d be amazed if my art had sold for $10, just because the first time you ever go about it is the idea someone is attracted to your art, let alone that they would pay something for it,” the president’s son continued.
Former Obama White House ethics chief Walter Shaub has been outspoken about the obvious ethical issues surrounding the President’s son selling art to anonymous buyers for such a high price tag. After hearing Biden’s poorly laid out defense Shaub laughed at him once again.
“The son of a sitting president is amazed anyone would pay more than $10 for his art?” Shaub told Fox News in a Friday email.
“He must have been positively flabbergasted when an influence-seeking tycoon gave him a large diamond a few years back,” Shaub quipped. “This old diamond? Why, I only wear it when I don’t care HOW I look.”
Shaub was referencing a 2019 New Yorker article that discussed how Chinese energy tycoon Ye Jianming gifted Bidena diamond as he was trying to gain influence with prominent American Political players.
