President Biden's son, Hunter, has been painting "abstract" art paintings and selling them for very large amounts of money to anonymous buyers.

This raises what should be obvious ethical concerns. To state it very bluntly, it could be a scheme to launder money, with President Biden using his position to take bribes and having the money go to his son.

It is highly suspicious and more than a little bit questionable that Hunter has suddenly taken up professional painting, and that there are buyers willing to pay so much for his paintings.
There is a joke in the art world that anyone can slap some paint on a canvas and call it "abstract art".

Even compared with professional and famous abstract artists, Biden's paintings are selling for what seems to be much larger excessive amounts.

This comes after the Ukrainian Burisma scandal where Biden was accused of using his position as then Vice President to have money be given to Hunter.

Of course, this could just be a huge coincidence and maybe Hunter really has found his niche as a professional abstract artist.

The president's son has been painting since he was a child and, while he has no formal training, Biden has taken a serious focus to his work and is now creating art full-time.

Even without formal training, Biden's pieces carrying five- to six-figure price tags put his work in the same range as established artists in the field.

The first son's first foray into the art world has seen his pieces picked up by art dealer Georges Berges, who has priced the younger Biden's artwork between $75,000 and $500,000 depending on the size and scope of the collage artwork.

That's a pretty big haul when compared to other artists' first sales. In fact, Biden’s pieces are worth more than a piece by Jean-Michel Basquiat that sold for $20,900 in 1984 - $53,770 in today's dollars after adjusting for inflation.

A piece by famed abstract artist Andy Warhol sold for $725,000 at a New York auction, only $225,000 more than one of the pieces by the president's son.​

Hunter Biden's art to sell as high as $500K and the buyers will be kept 'confidential' | Fox Business ... lling-500k

And now suddenly Hunter Biden is selling abstract paintings for $500,000 a piece to unknown nefarious donors and those donors will remain confidential. In comparison, an average Salvador Dali painting can cost a mere $50,000. Something smells rotten in Denmark. Of course, Hunter’s resume of zero experience continues to land him the big money from the big guy. As Hunter has zero experience as a painter.

Just how stupid does the Biden crime family think the American people are? But if they get away with this, they can absolutely get away with anything.​

Some people are saying that because he is the President's son, that adds fame and value to his work.
That seems like a very weak excuse. This is the son of the President, not the President himself. And Biden is not a particularly well-loved or popular President; people mainly voted for him because they did not like Trump. Usually the belongings or works of politicians do not hold high amounts of value unless they are related to the issue of politics in some way.

This does seem highly questionable and is something that should be looked at with scrutiny.
Now is the time to be concerned about the ethics of the president's children. We have to be consistent. What's next? Will he have Hunter run the Biden Organization while he's in office?

If the extreme corruption of the Trump Crime Family pissed one off, is one allowed to also be pissed off at the pretty apparent Biden Family corruption here?
You don't understand. The thing we need to be angry at now is how Hunter Biden placed M&M's, an American institution, on his penis.

Kamala went to the wrong part of the border after she finally went to the border and Hunter Biden tarnished one of America's most cherished institutions by defiling their candy with his penis. We need to be really angry about this, all the time. Even in our sleep we should be dreaming revenge fantasies about Hunter Biden.

In short, yes. Corruption is something that we should be angry about. But lets have that conversation with people who engage in good faith and don't cite InfoWars of all fucking places.
