After years in public service, President Joe Biden has made a name for himself. Apparently, his opportunistic family members have no problem exploiting that name when it suits them.
Francis “Frank” Biden recently used his older brother Joe Biden’s notoriety to promote his employer, the Berman Law Group, the Washington Examiner reported. Frank Biden bragged about his ties to the incoming administration in an Inauguration Day print ad for the Boca Raton, Florida law firm.
The ad, placed in the Daily Business Review on the day the new president was to be sworn in, featured photos of the two men and quotes that sought to bolster the younger Biden’s reputation with their connection, according to CNBC. “The two Biden brothers have long held a commitment to pushing environmental issues to the forefront; the president-elect has vowed to rejoin the Paris Agreement and wants to set ambitious greenhouse gas reduction targets, for example,” the ad claimed.
“My brother is a model for how to go about doing this work,” Frank Biden said in the ad, reinforcing the idea that the pair are closely linked. “One of his central tenets is that one should never question another man’s or woman’s motives or assign blame to them. That way, you avoid creating a disparity that prevents any kind of coming together,” he said.
“You can of course question someone’s judgment, and that’s what we’re doing by bringing this to court,” the younger Biden said of the class-action lawsuit the firm brought against a group of Florida sugar growers for burning sugar. The firm is suing for damages to the public health they claim came from the practice, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
The ad explicitly mentioned the “Biden reputation for and motivation to engage in philanthropic, social and environmental issues that presented themselves,” leaving no doubt the name-dropping was intentional. Contact info, including for Frank Biden, is provided in the ad as well.
It’s not surprising to see another Biden use family connections to the politician. Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden and the president’s younger brother Jim Biden allegedly made deals based on their ties to the eldest Biden, and even signed a correspondence with “best wishes from the entire Biden family.”
In the scandal the New York Post broke wide open just before the presidential election, Hunter Biden’s laptop provided evidence that members of the family were scheming with foreign companies to enrich themselves and possibly the then-candidate using the Biden name as an implicit promise of political influence.
While former President Donald Trump was harshly criticized for hiring his children as legitimate advisors, the mainstream media look the other way as the Bidens continue to cash in on the family name in questionable ways. President Joe Biden epitomizes the swamp-dwelling bottom feeders that Trump fought so hard to rid Washington, D.C. of during his term, and now it looks like America is stuck with the worst of that breed — and his brood — for the next four years.
