Opinion| Mark Sidney| As the old joke goes: How do you know Joe Biden is lying? His lips are moving!
After seeing his candidacy peak in popularity months before the primary, Biden has seen scandal after scandal of his brought out into the light. I think it’s pretty safe to say, Joe Biden will not be the Democratic nominee running against Trump. However, he may be the former candidate, running from Trump and the DOJ!
Why is this all relevant? Well …
Obama-era Vice President/presidential hopeful Joe Biden has stated that if elected, his children “are not going to have offices in the White House.” The comment came after Biden slammed the Trump family’s involvement in the current administration.
Biden called it “improper” for Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner to be granted senior administration positions under President Trump.
Biden did find it proper to have his son fly with him on Air Force 2 to China and negotiate business deals. Biden also saw fit to threaten Ukraine with witholding a billion dollars in loan guarantees if the Eastern European nation did not fire the prosecutor looking into this son’s company, Burisma Oil.
The Daily Mail UK reports that Biden’s comments come “after Trump repeatedly criticized Biden’s son Hunter who sat on the board of a Ukrainian gas company while his father was Vice President.”
Via the Daily Mail UK:
Biden told CBS’s 60 Minutes, to air on Sunday: ‘Look, I wasn’t raised to go after the children. Their actions speak for themselves. I can just tell you this, that if I’m president, get elected president, my children are not going to have offices in the White House.
‘My children are not going to sit in on Cabinet meetings.
‘It’s just simply improper, because you should make it clear to the American public that everything you’re doing is for them.’
He then went on to say that Jared Kushner has no expertise in the Middle East and should not be negotiating a peace plan.
The Trump campaign responded in a statement yesterday evening: ‘Joe Biden is correct on one point: Hunter Biden would never have an office in the White House because he’s proven that his only qualification is being the son of Joe Biden.’

It seems that Biden failed to mention that his son, Hunter, padded his own pockets with millions of dollars just for being the son of the Vice President, while Ivanka Trump takes home no salary for her work in the Trump administration.
The Democrats may well impeach Trump over some trumped up charges. Regardless, if they do, I am pretty sure that Biden and a whole slew of globalist kleptocrats are going to get their asses handed to them.
This is going to be one hell of an election season!
