AMBER ATHEY: The Bidens acts like kings and queens at a ‘royal’ White House wedding

Does the Biden family think they are American royalty? Because they certainly act on it.

Last weekend, Naomi Biden, the granddaughter of President Joe Biden, got married at the White House. Okay no problem. It’s happened before — in fact, there have been nineteen documented weddings at the White House.

The daughters of Lyndon Baines Johnson and Richard Nixon held their ceremonies at the historic estate – The People’s House.

What was abnormal is that this time the media was banned. Even the Democratic-sympathetic reporters were a little shocked.

“Why don’t you just let the press in for a few minutes to gain access?” NBC News’ Kirsten Welker asked White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Friday.

Naomi and Peter [Neal] have asked that their marriage be performed in front of the media and we respect their wishes,” said Jean-Pierre.

Oh of course. This is a private matter. Even though it was held on the South Lawn of the most famous home in American history.

The reporters who report daily from the White House and who have passes to access the complex were presented with a measly official photo of Naomi’s wedding. And to enforce the ban on the interfering free press and American citizens, the public park across the street was also closed off.

It is best to keep the farmers at a safe distance.

But to be honest, if that was all that was – a family wedding subsidized by the taxpayer – we would have all moved on by now. Yes, it’s unpleasant, but generally the most natural thing in the world.

That was until the Vogue photoshoot fell on Tuesday.

The glitzy fashion magazine was given exclusive access to the White House on Thursday before the wedding to interview Naomi and take carefully staged photos of what the special day would look like.

That does not seem to me to be the behavior of a particularly private person.

In a glamorous photo, Naomi looks nervous and excited, sitting on a striped couch in the Green Room of the White House, surrounded by a phalanx of servants, fixing her makeup and smoothing her wedding dress. In another, she strikes a pose and stares out the window.

While I’m normally pleased with the mainstream media’s woes, they’re right to be upset that the government misled them about the nature of this “private” event while making Naomi a fashion magazine cover star. became.

A Washington Post reporter tweeted, “I spent four years beating Trump WH and two years beating Biden WH. The fascinating thing is that they both lie, albeit in v different ways…”

But they should be used to it by now. It is not new that the Biden administration would deny access to the media and mislead them. Biden himself rarely gives interviews, and it is well documented that the White House has repeatedly used the COVID-19 pandemic as an excuse to limit the number of reporters attending events on campus.

But what the wrap up of Naomi’s wedding — and her fuzzy interview with Vogue — reveals is just how staggeringly removed the Bidens are from the rest of America.

As Americans struggle to put Thanksgiving dinner on the table amid skyrocketing inflation and lingering fears of a looming recession, they’re dressing up kings and queens.

Perhaps Naomi and Peter are planning to become the next Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. After all, the former royals also claimed they wanted privacy, only to embark on a seemingly never-ending media tour.

Or is it the Biden family envisioning themselves as the new Kennedys? An American version of royalty that gets all the money, power, and status, minus the titles. But just like the Kennedys, there is deep-rooted, sinister corruption behind the veneer of wealth and glamour.

Naomi’s father, Hunter Biden, who walked down the aisle with her, is one of the main benefactors of the immense privilege that comes with being a Biden. His offenses, from illegal drug use to soliciting prostitution and making a false statement to buy a gun, are all public record.

The contents of his laptop, which were reported ahead of the 2020 election and subsequently censored by social media sites and dismissed as Russian disinformation, strongly suggested he traded foreign dollars for access to his powerful father and failed to declare any taxable income. He has not yet suffered any consequences for it.

Coincidentally, Naomi chose the Verve’s “Bitter Sweet Symphony” for her father-daughter moment. “You are a slave to money, then you die,” reads the second line of the song. How lovely!

Hunter isn’t the only tease in the Biden family tree. Politico reported how the Biden family has repeatedly “cashed in” Joe’s political clout, such as when Hunter, Joe’s late son Beau, and his younger brother James took over a Manhattan hedge fund.

James Biden allegedly suggested that the fund would be a way for foreigners to “donate” to Joe Biden’s political future without breaking campaign finance laws. Frank Biden, Joe’s other brother, has admitted to using the family name to raise donations for charter schools in Florida.

Given the history of the Biden family, it’s no wonder Naomi thought nothing of asking her “daddy” to hold her wedding at the White House — and that Joe agreed to leave his granddaughter and her fiancé there for three months. living during the planning process.

We all know that the Biden family has endured a terrible tragedy, and who can blame a grandfather for wanting to give his granddaughter the wedding of her dreams. But there must be a limit. The president, the most powerful person in America, must exercise some discretion.

And it’s clear that members of the Biden family would benefit from being told “no.”

Naomi told Vogue in a laughable statement that the couple “always knew we were going to get married in someone’s backyard.”

“I think if my dad wasn’t president, it would probably be their home in Wilmington or Peter’s family’s backyard in Jackson. [Wyoming].’

Of course, the White House doesn’t belong to ‘pop’, it belongs to the American people. And when the average American imagines a backyard wedding, they think of a small, intimate affair with barbecue and light beer.

Naomi’s all-day affair was coordinated by a celebrity wedding planner and included an open-air ceremony with what appears to be tens of thousands of dollars worth of floral arrangements, a luncheon, and a celebratory evening reception featuring a six-foot, eight-tiered cake.

Naomi wore three different dresses throughout the day, including a Ralph Lauren custom dress, wore earrings worth nearly $10,000, and had her hair styled by a celebrity artist who charges $250 for a basic haircut. No wonder Vogue compared Noami to Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco.

I don’t blame Naomi for taking advantage of her family’s wealth and access to get her dream wedding. I am currently planning my own wedding and would jump at the opportunity to throw my carefully curated budget out the window.

But it’s time to finally stop pretending that the Biden family has any ties to working class or working-class America. Scranton Joe died the day Biden was first elected to the Senate in 1972. Since then, his entire family has been sucking the American people away.

Happy Thanksgiving – the First Family then heads to their humble home in Nantucket. Just kidding, it’s a $20 million mansion that belongs to a private equity billionaire.

It’s good to be the king.
