President Donald Trump and his supporters have repeatedly tried to accuse Democratic president nominee Joe Biden of nepotism. But when former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi made the accusation during the RNC Convention on Tuesday night, a CNN graphic revealed the hypocrisy.
Trump and his team of supporters are desperately trying to smear Biden during this four-day convention, which has thus far been a complete embarrassment.
The second night of the convention was no different as Bondi, who disgraced herself as part of Trump’s impeachment legal team earlier this year, accused Biden of nepotism without offering a shred of evidence to support the claim.
But as she spoke, a CNN graphic appeared revealing the next three speakers. Two of them were Trump’s children, and one was First Lady Melania Trump.
That’s the definition of nepotism, especially since Tiffany and Eric Trump are not part of the administration. Don Jr. spoke during the first night of the convention and Ivanka is introducing her dad on Thursday. Not only have the Trump children benefited from taxpayer dollars for trips and their business interests, Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner have White House jobs. That’s also nepotism.
It does not get any clearer than that, and Twitter users were amused by the ironic graphic.

While Pam Bondi is talking about Joe Biden’s nepotism the chyron under her literally says: Coming up: Eric Trump, Tiffany Trump, Melania Trump.
The Onion should declare victory and go home.

“How many families would be allowed to get away with that?” Pam Bondi asks of nepotism. CNN’s lower chyron offers a suggestion. pic.twitter.com/hf6QgATBH4

Nothing says hypocrisy quite like Pam Bondi, who took a $25K bribe from Donald, speaking about the evils of nepotism at the GOP hate Convention a day after Don Jr’s coked up rant and right before Tiffany trump comes out to speak. Not to mention Ivanka/Jared at the WH grifting. ?

Congratulations Tiffany Trump on being the only adult Trump child to not be penalized for charity fraud.
Oh, and for the speaking gig at #RNC2020 right after Pam Bondi railed against nepotism. That too.

Just like their attacks on Biden’s cognitive health, Trump and his team are going to have trouble selling the nepotism attack. Trump’s own kids work in the White House and all of them are directly profiting from the presidency. That’s real nepotism, and the American people know it.
