Hunter Biden fired back Thursday at those who have actually criticized him for the “shameless grift” of offering art to anonymous investors for large amounts.
“Fuck em … Look guy,” Hunter Biden said on the Nota Bene Podcast, “I never ever stated my art was going to cost what it was going to cost, or just how much it would be priced at. I would be surprised, you understand, if my art was sold, for you understand, for, umm, for ten dollars.”
“Even if the very first time you ever go about it is the concept that somebody is drawn in to your art, let alone they would pay something for it,” Hunter continued.
“The value of an artist’s work is, umm, is not necessarily identified by the price. However the rate is entirely subjective … it has absolutely nothing to do with anything besides, you know, the minute. Like, umm, you understand,” Hunter described, “taping a banana to the wall. But, but, but, it implies something, and it implied something to somebody.”
“I’m not stating I ‘d be as presumptuous to tape a banana to the wall and attempt to offer it, but I believe I’m doing stuff,” he siad.The recruiters went on to praise Hunter’s work as “strong and good” and said it is “amazing people are getting the possibility to see it and spend money on it.” The hosts described the idea the art sales are a corruption scheme as “absurd.”
On the other hand, Hunter’s art work transactions have triggered Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL) to introduce legislation Wednesday to obstruct them. The legislation is “focused on stopping the obvious and shameless grift that’s happening with Hunter Biden’s art sales, for which he is clearly not qualified to do and is just doing to continue to profit off of his family name,” Waltz informedFox News.
“When you’re seeing the brand-new endeavor, money-making endeavor, with zero certifications that are plainly hanging exclusively on the family name with confidential buyers, that is an entirely different matter and that’s what actually offers me pause,” Waltz described about Hunter’s business negotiations, that include being “an equity holder in the China nuclear power group that is blacklisted for attempting to steal American warhead technology.”
“And after that you include that to the Chinese transactions, the Burisma negotiations and the sort of long, sad history of offering the Biden name for impact,” he added. “We have to throw down the gauntlet.”
To make the optics even worse, Hunter just recently strucka deal with art dealer Georges Bergès, who has strong connections with China, which, by the way, took placearound the time when President Joe Biden’s kid consummated handle Chinese authorities and made 10s of countless dollars each month serving on the board of Burisma in 2014.
“My plan is to be the lead man in China; the lead collector and art dealership discovering and supporting talent from that area,” Bergès mentioned in 2015. “I plan to discover and find and give the rest of the world those I consider China’s next generation of contemporary artists.”
White Home press secretary Jen Psaki on July 22 defended Hunter and art transactions with potential “anonymous” art purchasers in New york city and Los Angeles as “sensible.”
Breitbart News senior factor and Profiles in Corruptionauthor Peter Schweizer, however, informedBreitbart News the “anonymous” buyers proposition is an “ridiculous” solution.
“The only way to deal with these concerns is with greater transparency, not less,” Schweizer said. “Their proposed solution is greater secrecy, not openness. And they are basically stating ‘Trust Us.’ Joe and Hunter Biden’s track record on such matters offers us no factor to trust them.”
