There are plenty of things to complain about when it comes to Hunter Biden. The nepotism that landed him in a lucrative position on a Ukrainian natural gas company’s board of directors. His lengthy bouts of hard drug use. There’s even all of the alleged improprieties found on the “laptop from Hell”.
But the latest issue that has bubbled to the surface of the Hunter Biden story is costing you, the American taxpayer, a whole lot of dough.

Hunter Biden is apparently spending his father’s presidency living in luxury in Malibu — and so is his taxpayer-funded security detail.
The Secret Service detail protecting the president’s controversial son has been paying more than $30,000 a month to rent out a swanky Malibu, California, mansion for nearly a year, sources familiar with the matter tell ABC News.Trending:
In Malibu, Hunter Biden’s digs include a four-bedroom, three-bathroom “resort-style” home with an open floor plan, vaulted high ceilings, chef’s kitchen and French doors, according to a description on its property listing. The mansion also features a “spacious park-like yard” with a pool, a spa, a built-in barbecue bar, and alfresco dining, according to the listing.
Biden’s time in the highfaluting locale is also of concern, as it is believed that the son of the President is currently working on his art career.
That art career, which sees the First Son regularly selling pieces for well over 6 figures, has come under scrutiny from the GOP who believe that this may just be another way for the Biden family to peddle influence and launder the rewards of that influence in the art market.
