(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – Back in March, The New York Times’ Adam Popescu wrote an article about Hunter Biden, son of then-Democratic primary frontrunner Joe Biden, and his budding art career.
You may know Hunter Biden better for the suspicious and well-paid position he held on the board of a Ukrainian oil and gas giant when his father was vice president and spearheading foreign policy in the nation.
Or maybe his history of meth addiction, illegitimate children he’s fathered by strippers he refuses to support, the shady deals with Chinese Communist Party-linked businesses, and “laptop” from hell containing numerous illicit images of sex acts and drug use?
That’s definitely what we know Hunter Biden for around these parts.
But the helpful mainstream media has been doing their part to rebrand the troublesome son of the now-President-elect as an artiste.
“There wasn’t a whole lot of talk about what the art looked like, because it looked a lot like this,” The Western Journal’s C. Douglas Golden notes.
Painting “keeps me away from people and places where I shouldn’t be,” said Hunter Biden, well known for his foreign dealings and his battles with drug addiction https://t.co/4kWHygfyJd

“Hey, I had those backgrounds on my iPhone 4s, too!” he quips.
He notes that the piece had primarily focused on how Biden was finding a way to heal from how hurt his feelings were that the Republicans had pushed to investigate his work with the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings.
The Times assured its readers that “There has been no proof of any wrongdoing by Mr. Biden related to his business dealings in Ukraine.”
It’s sort of difficult to determine this without a serious investigation having as of yet transpired, but whatever, New York Times. We’re a lot more concerned about wrongdoing on the part of Joe Biden when it comes to Hunter’s deals in Burisma, anyway, and he himself admitted he got the guy fired who had been investigating Burisma at the time.
“The piece hardly got into the seamier side of Biden’s life aside from the fact he was an addict — which, that’s terrible, but the fact he’d fathered a kid out of wedlock with an adult dancer and tried to avoid paying child support any way possible barely got discussed, as did any talk of his foreign dealings without saying there was no evidence to support looking into them,” Golden explains.
In the time since the piece first came out, he continues, “Biden has been the target of a tax fraud investigation for those foreign dealings for some time and he’d also forgotten about a laptop with some pretty important information on it that was part of that investigation.”
So when Vanity Fair’s Emily Kirkpatrick wrote about Hunter’s first solo art show in December, she was privy to this very significant information.
This was safely after the election, however.
She stated simply that Biden “has not only a Department of Justice investigation into his taxes to contend with, but also his first solo art show to prepare for next year.”
“The president-elect’s son is reportedly in the midst of signing a deal to be represented as an artist by Georges Bergès Gallery in New York City with a solo exhibition in the works for next year,” she wrote, citing the Post report.
“The venture capitalist turned artist, whose studio is in the pool house of his Hollywood Hills home, creates his work with a metal straw he uses to blow alcohol ink onto Japanese Yupo paper, creating abstract layers of colors and concentric circles,” she noted.
Good grief, is that not one of the most absurd sentences you’ve read this last year?
How easily and quickly these people sweep that whole pesky corruption thing under the rug when they’ve got a Democrat to fawn over.
She also cited a quote from the original piece in the Times’ in which Hunter had said that painting “puts my energy toward something positive,” and that “It keeps me away from people and places where I shouldn’t be.”
What, like your meth dealer and Chinese honeypot spies?
I suppose that’s a good thing.
