It looks like Hunter Biden’s gallerist has been raking in the federal money after Biden became president, with his “disaster assistance loan” doubling from $150k in 2020 to $350k this year. And the funny thing is that the gallery only has two employees:
Federal Loans to Hunter Biden's gallerist nearly DOUBLED after Biden entered office— totaling more than HALF A MILLION DOLLARS.
The gallerist has only 2 employees.

Here’s more from the NY Post, who broke the story:
A federal COVID loan to the art gallery repping Hunter Biden more than doubled after his father took office, records show.
The Georges Berges Gallery initially received a $150,000 COVID “disaster assistance loan” from the Small Business Administration last year, according to public records.
But the loan was recently “revised,” with the SBA approving a further $350,000 to the SoHo gallery this summer, records show.
The approval came on July 26, in the lead-up to Berges’ exclusive marketing of 15 paintings by the president’s scandal-scarred son, public records show.
In addition to the COVID disaster assistance loans, the SoHo gallery received nearly $80,000 in two payments in April 2020 and February 2021 under the SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program, funds meant to help businesses keep up with paychecks to employees during the pandemic.
All tolled, $580,000 in taxpayer-funded COVID relief aid was doled out to a gallery with only two employees, according to SBA records.
Berges declined to specifically respond to repeated queries from The Post on whether the Bidens interceded in his loans; if any of the government cash went directly to Hunter Biden as a salary or stipend; or if any of it was used to market his artwork.
That last paragraph makes an interesting point as to whether any of this money went directly to the president’s son via a salary or stipend. Obviously we don’t know at this point, but as slimy and corrupt as the Biden crime family is with all that we’ve seen at this point, I would almost expect that to be the case.
But don’t hold your breath for anyone with the power to investigate this to give a crap. The Biden’s are untouchable and this would matter only if it were Trump and his sons.
