Remember back when Hunter Biden was minting money by selling his art to people who definitely weren’t at all interested in winning influence with or favors from the Biden Administration by shelling out tens of thousands of dollars on subpar paintings?
Back when some of the pieces were selling for up to $500k each and a gallery in SoHo was selling 15 of his works to the same group of people that definitely didn’t want anything other than to enjoy some subpar art by spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on it?
Funny how that new line of work for Hunter died out around the same time his dad started tanking in the polls and people realized that he couldn’t get anything done, much left the radical policies of the far left.
Well, Jack Posobiec, the Twitter personality and Human Events editor, noticed that funny coincidence too, pointing it out on Twitter and saying “As Joe Biden fades so do Hunter Biden’s art sales.”
As Joe Biden fades so do Hunter Biden’s art sales

Indeed they do. In fact, the last time anything of note really happened with Hunter’s art was in October, when the New York Post reported this about the new business activity of the president’s son that certainly wasn’t a grift:
At least five prints of Hunter Biden’s artwork have already been sold for $75,000 each and a team of lawyers is vetting potential patrons who plan to attend his upcoming gallery show in New York City — which has now been delayed until the spring, The Post has learned.
The Georges Berges Gallery sold the prints before the Oct. 1 opening of a “pop-up” presentation in Los Angeles, a source familiar with the matter said Thursday.
It’s unclear who purchased the reproductions — which cost a fraction of the top price of $500,000 for an original piece by President Biden’s scandal-scarred son — or if any more were sold after the LA show opened.
While Hunter and his Picasso-like masterpieces haven’t been in the news overly much recently, other than that brief crack pipe uproar and the HUNTER Act, Hunter has been out of the news much too, only cropping up when the twin topics of crack or elites selling out to China do.
Biden, however, has not been. Inflation is hitting a 40 year high and remaining a crisis, the Biden Administration’s Covid response has been deeply unpopular, the illegal immigration problem has become a pressing crisis, and the Afghanistan route was embarrassing.
As a result, Biden’s poll numbers are hitting new lows every time someone bothers to check, putting him in a historically bad first-year position.
While Hunter’s art surely wasn’t ever bought by anyone trying to win influence with the president by overpaying for his son’s mediocre paintings, if anyone had thought about doing that they’re probably not anymore.
For one, he’s so unpopular that his favor has less pull than it used to. But, more than that, he’s proven totally ineffective at getting anything done other than the creation of crises, so those who might have thought about paying to make something can happen are seeing that their dollars might be better spent elsewhere.
Either that or Hunter has secluded himself and is diligently slaving away on his next masterpiece. Perhaps Xi is buying it.
