The fact that his has been true of every painter since the Cro-Magnon era, when an artist would offer to paint up your cave nice if you would save him the trouble of killing his own mastodon by letting him have some of yours, through Michelangelo bitching out the Pope, to the present day, when people sell their paint-by-numbers projects at yard sales, does not mean that some Republicans are not trying to make a major scandal out of it, and DTJ, as usual, is the loudest voice among them.
Trump Jr. has always had it in for Biden, whom he feels is a bottomless pit of moral squalor for cashing in on his dad’s name. The fact that if it wasn’t for his dad, Don the 2nd would be lucky to be a night security guard at a roadside reptile zoo in Florida, kind of trips him up on this, but Junior keeps bravely trying, playing the nepo-a-nepo card whenever he feels necessary to yelp about Hunter Biden.
All right, so I’m probably overstating Trump the Younger’s value on the job market. He probably couldn’t get that security gig at the reptile zoo unless his father owned it, and the ex-Caucasian-in-Chief probably wouldn’t own anything besides a bucket of bait if his father hadn’t skirted the tax statutes to leave him 400 million bucks.
Hunter Biden’s dad has never given him a job, for example, leaving him to freelance off his dad’s career on his own. Don Jr works in his dad’s company, doing the hot, sweaty work of concealing income and gouging contractors. He has been the guiding hand behind Trump Steaks, which sought to convince the beef-eating public that a man who likes his steaks well-done and smeared with ketchup was the guy to buy their sirloin from, and Trump Wine, because everybody who drinks thinks it’s a winning idea to buy wine from a teetotaler.
If Joe Biden really cared about his kid, he’d have bankrupted an airline so Hunter would be able to fly for free, or created a fraudulent university the boy could be provost of. If the President had created a fake charity for Hunter to grift off of, as Daddy Trump did for his kids, would the lad have to resort to peddling art in the alleys of Manhattan?
Hunter Biden wrote a book, as did Trump, Jr., but the Democratic National Committee has not bought $300,000 worth of copies like the Republican National Committee did Don the Dos’s in an effort to make Junior’s book a best-seller.
All these facts lead to one conclusion, and it’s not that one Presidential scion out-nepotisms the other.
It’s that Joe Biden, while he might be an okay President, especially comparatively, is a pretty shitty dad.
