If he was attired in a black turtleneck, beret, skinny jeans, and a Van Dyke beard, though amusing, it still wouldn’t make Hunter Biden a legitimate artist. Though okay, maybe a French accent would help.
FNC: “A CNN panel reacted to Hunter Biden’s plans to meet with potential buyers of his new artwork in New York City and Los Angeles, where his art could be sold for upwards of $500,000, calling it an ‘ethics problem.’
White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended Biden’s new venture on Thursday, arguing that because the buyers will remain anonymous, there will be no ‘undue influence’ in the administration.”
“I’m not an art critic,” CNN’s Abby Phillip said on Sunday. “I don’t know anything about art, but these people do. One Pulitzer-prize winning art critic says that he thinks that Hunter Biden’s art is kind of like a cafe painter. He says, you wouldn’t, unless you were related to the artist, spend more than $1,000 on it. But then another art critic, who actually likes Hunter Biden’s work also says this, ‘Anybody who buys it would be guaranteed instant profit. He’s the president’s son…Obviously, this is a problem, an ethical problem, of optics and from a practical perspective. Why even do this?…I find it hard to believe there is any such thing as a blind sale when you’re purchasing art from the president’s son,” Phillip said.

“This is a huge optics problem, an ethics problem,” confirmed CNN Capitol Hill reporter Melania Zanona. “And making it more challenging is that it is art and the value is assigned. That’s why critics are saying different things. Obviously, the White House is trying to get some sort of wrap around this, they’re trying to come up with an arrangement that will make it look better. But, you know, they’re worried about it.”
Conservatives were surprised at the CNN panel’s words, but saw through the intent. “You gotta admire the way the panel giggles throughout and while to all agree it’s an optics problem, they all know they’d be the ones to hold the Biden accountable and there’s no way in hell they’re going to do that, so it ultimately doesn’t matter,” tweeted conservative writer Derek Hunter.
