Biden’s Venmo Account

Stories like this just make me want to pay for everything in cash.

Under the headline “Beneath Joe Biden’s Folksy Demeanor, a Short Fuse and an Obsession With Details”, the Times reported lengthy policy debates, angry outbursts at advisers and officials – and plenty of time spent with grandchildren.


“They have been known to show their grandfather apps like TikTok,” the story said. “One adviser said he had sent the grandchildren money using Venmo.”




BuzzFeed said it took “less than 10 minutes” to find Biden’s account, “using only a combination of the app’s built-in search tool and public friends feature”.


“In the process,” it said, it “found nearly a dozen Biden family members and mapped out a social web that encompasses not only the first family but a wide network of people around them, including the president’s children, grandchildren, senior White House officials and all of their contacts on Venmo.”


The White House did not immediately comment. By late Friday, BuzzFeed said, accounts for the president and first lady had been removed.

    Good job by National Security and Senile Joe.
    If BuzzFeed took 10 minutes to find it, you know foreign spy teams found it and much earlier and it’s probably been hacked, by both friends and enemies.
    I’m sure the Secret Service, when they read Buzz Feed probably said about Senile Joe “He did what? What a dip shit”, which is probably his unofficial code name.

    The question: was it USD or YUAN he ‘gave to his grandchildren’?
