The Biden’s took off for South Carolina on Air Force One on Wednesday amid an ongoing federal investigation into Hunter’s finances and foreign business dealings. While President Joe Biden vacationed with his son, GOP lawmakers raised concerns about the federal government’s treatment of prominent Democrats compared to his predecessor.
Biden’s vacation comes as conservatives decry the administration for double standards following the recent raid of former President Donald Trump’s home in Florida.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was among those denouncing the disparity. He asserted that people like Hunter Biden are treated far more favorably than the President’s political opponents.
