McDaniel is the niece of former presidential nominee and current Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, but didn’t mention that minor detail in a tweet attacking the son of former vice president and current presidential candidate Joe Biden.
Let me get this straight…— Ronna McDaniel (@GOPChairwoman) October 15, 2019
Hunter Biden got $50K a month from a Ukrainian energy company, despite having ZERO experience in energy.
That he was also on the board of Amtrak – more obvious nepotism.
If that’s not the swamp, I don’t know what is!
Luckily, many Twitter users quickly reminded McDaniel that she may not be the best person to criticize political nepotism.

Some Twitter users felt McDaniel was on to something, but wished she’d take things further.
Now do Ivanka and Don Jr.— Byron Sebastian (@sebastian_byron) October 15, 2019
Ivanka and Jared made $82 MILLION last year.https://t.co/2qC3Wh2vtd— Leah McElrath 🏳️🌈 (@leahmcelrath) October 15, 2019
You don't? Let me help. Javanka made $82M last year while working at the WH. They have no experience. Ivanka got dozens of expedited Chinese trademarks. Jared is making secret deals with the Saudis. China gave $500M to a Trump project in Indonesia being overseen by Don Jr. & Eric— Facts Do Matter (@WilDonnelly) October 15, 2019
