Imagine if this guy were ever president, the demands he’d make.
Via Daily Wire:
Joe Biden once described himself as “the poorest man in Congress” — but all that’s changing, fast.
The career politician had a nice eight-year run: He lived in a mansion in Washington, D.C. (the Naval Observatory, official residence of the vice president), where he enjoyed the services of a full-time staff, complete with chef. Of course, he didn’t have to pay any rent on the 9,000-square-foot house.
During that time, he pulled in a salary of $230,700, which put him in the 97th percentile, according to this website. And don’t forget, while in office, he hardly spent a penny on anything (he even got his own plane, Air Force Two).
Now, though, Biden’s thinking about running for president for a third time. And there’s good reason for the 76-year-old to jump into the 2020 race: Money. Candidates live the high life, jetting around the country in private planes, lounging in five-star hotels, eating like a king — all while hauling in millions from contributors who end up footing the bill. Nice work if you can find it (just ask socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, who owns three houses).
