(RoyalPatriot.com )- In a column at Yahoo Finance on Monday, writer Christian Long answered the question, just how rich are President Biden and Kamala Harris.
Long points out the blindingly obvious, namely that politicians may earn big salaries, but those salaries don’t reveal their true wealth.
According to Long, when Joe Biden left office in 2017, he was worth about $2.5 million. But in the years since, “lunch bucket Joe’s” wealth skyrocketed to $8 million. Most of the windfall, Long explains, was from book sales, speeches, and other public appearance fees.
Odd how Christian Long fails to mention Joe’s other source of wealth: Hunter’s dirty deals with China.
Then there’s Kamala Harris.
Kamala, who has never had a job outside of government, had her first taste of wealth after publishing three books between 2009 and 2019, including a memoir. But after marrying Doug Emhoff, in 2014, Long explains, Kamala struck it rich. The Harris/Emhoffs are worth $7 million.
But Joe and Kamala both pale in comparison to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
Pelosi, that warrior of the working class, is worth a staggering $114 million.
While some of Pelosi’s wealth is from speaking fees, most of it stems from marrying well. Pelosi’s husband, Paul, founded the venture capital firm Financial Leasing Services. And his investments, no doubt guided by Pelosi’s access to inside information, have made Nancy a very wealthy “public servant.”
