Joe Biden didn’t run for president in 2016. But he didn’t waste his time staying poor.
Because why carry a lunch bucket when you can do expense account lunches at steakhouses?
According to the New York Post:
When Joe Biden was a US senator he referred to himself as “one of the poorest members” of Congress. But his fortunes rose precipitously following his years as vice president, thanks to a flurry of cash from book deals and speeches — as well as regular kickbacks from his brother and youngest son, according to text messages from Hunter Biden’s laptop and a congressional probe.
In 2016, his last year as vice president, “middle class Joe” reported between $291,000 and about $1 million in assets and income outside his vice-presidential salary of $230,700. He also claimed between $780,000 and about $1.6 million in liabilities, according to his 2016 personal financial disclosure form . . .
In the year after he left office as vice president in 2017, Biden and his wife Jill earned more than $11 million, and raked in $4.6 million the following year, according to Forbes.
