Hey, everybody! Don’t you love it when the government spends your tax dollars protecting walking dumpster fires while they live in the lap of luxury? That kind of sweet deal is typically reserved for the elite of the elite. Instead, you’re providing your money to help keep President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, safe.
Oh yeah, Hunter’s being protected while living in privilege in a “$5.4 million canal-front, three story property” in Venice, California. Granted, Biden’s family — who don’t deserve the scrutiny and animus directed at Hunter himself — came along with him to live by the beach.
According to the Daily Mail, Biden, his wife Melissa and their 10-month-old son Beau moved onto the property “toward the end of last year.” But now, the Secret Service is with them for 24-hour protection.
The Daily Mail reported:
It's believed the father of five, who turned 51 on Thursday, is paying $25,000 a month to rent the posh property owned by Sweetgreen co-founder and CEO Jonathan Neman.
Hunter has some fresh cash to help pay for the pricey rental. On Thursday it was revealed he has written a memoir titled Beautiful Things, that will be published April 6. The advance for the book is said to be as much as $2million.
Before his father took office, Hunter and his family had been keeping a low profile during the pandemic and had been cooped up in their former home, a rented luxury $3.8million three-bed pad perched on the Hollywood Hills.
Go figure. Daddy takes over and all of a sudden Hunter needs an upgrade. And if the report above is accurate, then Biden decided to double his monthly rent payment — which is ironically around the price of a new car for the average American.
The news of the Biden’s new digs come around the same time Biden announced plans to release his new book “Beautiful Things: A Memoir” on April 6. The president proclaimed that his “boy’s back” after dealing with years of substance abuse, among other things.
“The honesty with which he stepped forward and talked about the problem,” the president said, according to Fox News. “And the hope that — it gave me hope reading it.”
If Hunter Biden has legitimately chased away his demons, good for him. But the question of his involvement in foreign business dealings in places like China and Ukraine — possibly at the behest of his father, who was the Vice President at the time — still remain, along with a Justice Department investigation into his taxes.
At the same time, immediate family of past president's received Secret Service protection as well. According to federal law, a president and vice president's immediate family members can decline secret service protection. But, the families of pretty much every modern president haven't turned down the offer of having Secret Service protect them.
