Ex-politicians signing up to ‘teach a class’ (actually deliver a few guest lectures while some adjunct does the actual work) is nothing new. Even if it’s easily mockable. But Hunter Biden isn’t an ex-politician or even a politician. He’s a politician’s kid. That’s also not wholly unprecedented. Ask Chelsea Clinton, but at least she put in enough time to build some sort of resume.
Hunter Biden has gone from drug fiend to the classroom in a ridiculously short amount of time while still under FBI investigation.
Hunter Biden is helping teach a class on fake news at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana this fall.
The course titled ‘Media Polarization and Public Policy Impacts’ will include several guest speakers throughout its 10 weeks, including the president’s son.
The course description, according to a copy of the syllabus obtained by DailyMail.com, says: ‘America’s rapidly advancing partisan divide is fueled substantially by the growing political polarization increasingly evident in our news media.’
‘This course will explore the current state of the media landscape in the United States and how media polarization, fake news, and the economics of the news business impact public policymaking in Washington, D.C,’ it continues.
Call this a contribution to Hunter’s redemption tour. A completely unjustified and unqualified one. But Hunter is the son of the guy in the White House. And Tulane would be happy to wet its beak. As Tulane notes, it’s got 4 alumni in the new administration, including Rick Levine. And it scored a $1.6 million cancer grant. I’m not saying it’s quid pro quo. But it’s not just the Chinese who get to politicians through their kids.
Hunter spends some time at Tulane. Gets treated like a VIP. And good stuff happens. At the very least Tulane is much more on Biden’s radar.
That’s public policy.
