According to Fox News host Dan Bongino, kids hoping to grow up to be athletes or doctors have it all wrong, the best job in America is not only one where you can rake in the big bucks but you can also have mega influence and zero accountability.
“The best job in America – drum roll, please – is obviously being a politician,” he proclaimed on Saturday’s episode of “Unfiltered with Dan Bongino.”
“I mean that, seriously,” he said. “Where else do you have so much influence with so little accountability? And here’s an added bonus for you: You can make oodles and boatloads of cash, get that cheese, while claiming to serve the public. What a gig. I mean, listen, maybe we all had it wrong as kids. Idiots, athletes, doctors — what were we thinking?”
Bongino tore into numerous so-called coincidental investments that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband has made, which over the years has magically turned her $233,500 annual congressional salary into an estimated $46 million net worth according to the Week, although Open Secrets estimates the lawmaker could have assets amounting to as much as $242,150,991.
“Let’s start with savvy investor Paul Pelosi, you know, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. And together, they are quite the money-making machine there. Paul Pelosi just made a genius financial move, buying at least $1 million worth of computer chip stocks just before a major vote in the Senate to subsidize that same industry,” Bongino recalled.
“Timely, right? Nancy’s office, of course, claims she has no prior knowledge of her husband’s trade,” the former secret service agent said.

“So how much money does Paul Pelosi actually trade on the stock market? Well, take a look over my shoulder here, those are some pretty enormous numbers, and they’re all transactions reported by Pelosi just in 2022 — not bad for a politically connected family,” Bongino said referencing a huge scrolling list of significant transactions, many up to $5 million a pop. “Not bad at all, I say. Got to be a politician.”
Bongino ranked being the first family pretty high on his list of most desirable jobs in the United States as he recalled the bombshell headlines about President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden confirming that President Biden was scheduled to meet with Hunter Biden’s shady business partners.
“Did Hunter make money on the foreign business deals or not? You know, truth kind of matters. You know, another thing, when I was a Secret Service agent back in the day, it was almost impossible to get a White House tour for my family, and I worked there. Hunter doesn’t seem to have any problem at all getting one. I’m calling Hunter next time I need a White House tour,” Bongino said.

“Like Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden’s been in the politics business long enough to know he’s too powerful to face any accountability,” Bongino said.
“Best job in America again, being a politician. The best job in America,” the 47-year-old political commentator emphasized. “I guess we know how Hunter Biden now can afford to pay $20,000 a month for his Malibu home. Being a powerful politician or one’s son really pays dividends these days, don’t it?”
“So to recap, the political class is sent to Washington to be ‘public servants,’ right?” the former police officer said. “Enjoy unlimited access to power. They have multimillion-dollar mansions, their family members who commit actual crimes get slapped on the wrist. They never have to worry about real accountability.”
“Who doesn’t want that job?” Bongino asked. “Sign me up, kids.”
