Obama Ethics Chief Warns ‘Grifty Feeling’ To Hunter Biden’s Art Being Sold To Anonymous Buyers
Hunter Biden’s paintings are expected to sell for anywhere between $75,000 and $500,000, depending on its size and scale.
“The notion of a president’s son capitalizing on that relationship by selling art at obviously inflated prices and keeping the public in the dark about who’s funneling money to him has a shameful and grifty feel to it,” Shaub told Fox News.
Shaub stated, “Hunter Biden’s grotesquely inflated art prices create” a danger of “influence-seekers funneling money to the Biden family.”
Hunter Biden’s art dealer, Georges Berges, “should disclose the identity of the purchasers,” according to Shaub, so that the American people can know who is seeking to “gain access to [the] government.”
“But I also think it’s ridiculous that Hunter Biden is even going forward with this sale as a first-time artist,” Shaub said.
“He can’t possibly think anyone is paying him based on the quality of the art. This smells like an attempt to cash in on a family connection to the White House. At a minimum, the president should be asking his son not to go through with this auction,” Shaub added.
“It makes perfect sense that a hedge fund manager with no art training who has never sold a piece would seek $500,000 for his doodles, and anyone who thinks the payoff’s based on his relation to POTUS is patently crazy. Why I sold macaroni art for more than that in nursery school,” Shaub continued.
Shaub slammed the Biden administration’s ethics last week, calling Biden a “f***ing failure.”
Shaub made the comments in reaction to a story in The Washington Post regarding senior Biden advisers obtaining “coveted jobs” in the Biden administration for family members.
“I’m sorry, I know some folks don’t like hearing any criticism of him. But this royally sucks. I’m disgusted. A lot of us worked hard to tee him up to restore ethics to government and believed the promises. This is a a real ‘f— you’ to us—and government ethics,” Shaub said.
“Pathetic! The responses from people who spent 4 years complaining the other side was putting party over country are pathetic. They sound just like MAGAs. The jobs went to privileged kiddos with mommies & daddies who cozied up to POTUS. Nepotism is illegal,” Shaub continued.
“EVEN THE F-ING HEAD OF PRESIDENTIAL PERSONNEL, WHO IS SUPPOSED TO BE KEEPING THEM HONEST, HAS A CHILD WHO’S A RECENT COLLEGE GRAD WORKING IN THE ADMINISTRATION. AND THE SPOUSE OF THE WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OF STAFF, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. This is ridiculous. What a f—ing failure,” Shaub exclaimed.
“When little problems like this, which are so damn easy to avoid, crop up, it’s a sign of much bigger rot. Because if you can’t even do the easy things, you sure as hell can’t do the hard things. The White House’s defense that they had the minimum qualifications is total BS. The issue isn’t whether they were qualified (some weren’t). It’s that a WH that promised diversity is giving these privileged white kids with connected mommies and daddies prime jobs over others!” he continued.
