Twitter users were in rare form on Saturday as they launched campaigns mocking President Donald Trump’s constant habit of parting ways with the truth and the visit by Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner to Iraq.

Late this week, photos surfaced of Kushner wearing kevlar body armor over a blue blazer and khaki trousers along with his Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses as he met with military personnel in war-torn Iraq.

Bannon might reign supreme in crafting the president’s policy agenda.
