Joe Biden has spent months pitching class warfare against the rich and in particular, against billionaires, incessantly demanding that they “pay their fair share” in taxes. This, despite the fact that the top 1 percent pay 40 percent of all the taxes and the top 10 percent pay about 71 percent of all the taxes.

After preaching that division and making it harder on Americans to afford their Thanksgiving meal (not to mention most other expenses), Biden then trundled off to stay at private equity billionaire David Rubenstein’s compound for his Thanksgiving celebration on Nantucket.

Of course, when asked about why he was hanging out at a billionaire’s place after bashing billionaires, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said, “This is a time to put politics aside, spend time with your loved ones, and talk about what you’re grateful for.” Of course. Rules for thee but not for me, hits yet again. He wants everyone to hate on billionaires, just not those
