Critics have complained that former President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, has wrongly benefited from his father’s political influence for decades.
On Wednesday, just hours before his father’s first presidential address to Congress, Hunter announced he has a strange new job.
He’s been asked to lecture at the Tulane University in a class, “Media Polarization and Public Policy Impacts.”
According to the syllabus, “America’s rapidly advancing partisan divide is fueled substantially by the growing political polarization increasingly evident in our news media. This course will explore the current state of the media landscape in the United States and how media polarization, fake news, and the economics of the news business impact public policymaking in Washington, D.C.”
The timing of the announcement couldn’t have been worse. Hunter’s new job was released to the media the same day former President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani — who investigated Hunter’s alleged wrongdoings in Ukraine — had his apartment raided by the Department of Justice.
Earlier this month, Hunter had attacked Trump’s children and challenged them to get a job “without their Daddy’s help.”
Hunter has no background in the media, is currently under FBI investigation, and reportedly lied on his background check when applying for a handgun two years ago.
The job announcement stunned many, and both conservative activists and Republican lawmakers responded —
Eric Swalwell slept with a Chinese spy and Nancy Pelosi gave him a promotion.
Rudy Giuliani investigated Hunter Biden's corrupt Ukraine deals and the feds raided his office and home.
But how dare we claim the DOJ could be weaponized!

Perhaps Hunter Biden’s class at Tulane will be about how to skirt around gun laws?
It’s a subject he has a great deal of experience in.

Hunter Biden teaching a class on Fake News is like Ted Bundy teaching a class on Dating.

Hunter Biden teaching a course on "fake news" is about par for the course these days. Frankly, he's better qualified to teach a course on the uses of parmesan cheese.
