The president's granddaughter, Naomi, received a glamorous feature in the fashion magazine Vogue, detailing her mid-November wedding weekend at the White House. Slipped in the "exclusive"
spread was the interesting nugget that the new bride - Hunter's daughter - has been living at the President's House with her new husband for the last few months.
Vogue explained how Naomi and her then-fiancé, Peter Neal, ended up at the White House: "When the couple's lease ran out on their DC apartment, they asked Nana and the president if they could move in for a few months while wedding planning, along with their mini Australian shepherd, Charlie, who can often be seen gamboling on the South Lawn with the Bidens' German shepherd, Commander."
Nana, of course, refers to President Joe Biden's wife, Jill.
"I try to remind myself it's the White House, but it also gets normalized over time,"
Naomi told the magazine.
Members of the press are upset that the Biden administration claimed the wedding would be cut off from media coverage out of respect for the newlyweds' wishes.
One Associated Press reporter pointed out that last week, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said, "The wedding of Naomi Biden and Peter is a private one. The family - it's a family event. And Naomi and Peter have asked that their wedding be closed to the media, and we are respecting their wishes."
The Daily Caller's Diana Glebova tweeted, "The White House banned even [sic] single outlet from covering Naomi Biden's wedding in the White House, saying it's 'private,' but allowed Vogue magazine exclusive coverage."
Glebova also added that the outlet really globbed on the praise for the Bidens.
"Vogue compares Naomi to the Princess of Monaco and says the wedding was akin to a 'royal' one,"
Of course, that's nothing new. "Mainstream"
media loves the Bidens and gives them a pass.
Outlets like Vogue aren't interested in figuring out why the president hasn't acknowledged the existence of Hunter's illegitimate daughter in Arkansas, but Naomi gets to live in the taxpayer-funded White House.
We know that the president's son, a struggling artist, has fallen on hard times recently. In September, his attorneys asked the court to recalculate his child support payments. Perhaps that's because he could be spending $240,000 per year on rent alone. Earlier this year, Hunter was reportedly living in a $20,000 per month Malibu-mansion.
Whatever the reason, Naomi hasn't been living there. American tax dollars have been used to house her and her new hubby.
Beyond the finances of it, one also has to wonder why the "devout Catholic"
president would let his granddaughter live with a man who wasn't her husband at the time. In the Roman Catholic Church, cohabitation is a mortal sin. Encouraging or enabling it is also a sin.
In the end, the Vogue report raises more questions than it provides answers.
