Jared Kushner got punished for causing Trump’s embarrassing chief of staff problems: report

Trump fired his chief of staff without a replacement.

President Donald Trump is not happy with his son-in-law and top adviser Jared Kushner, according to a new report in Vanity Fair.

Reporter Gabriel Sherman found that the president blames Kushner for the embarrassing failure of his plan to replace current White House Chief of Staff John Kelly with Nick Ayers, who is serving as the vice president’s chief of staff. Kushner and Ivanka Trump reportedly pushed for Kelly’s ouster and Ayers’ ascension, but Ayers foiled the plan on Saturday shortly after Trump revealed he would need a new chief of staff.

To punish Kushner for his role in this blunder, Sherman reports that Trump forced his son-in-law to go on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show and take the heat. Kushner rarely speaks in public.

“Trump said, ‘You’re going to go on there and defend me and take blame for chief of staff as punishment,’” one source told Sherman.

Despite Ivanka’s reported participation in the effort to promote Ayers, it’s not clear she felt any backlash from her father.

Kushner’s record thus far in the White House has been dismal. His most notable accomplishment has been forging a close bond with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman — a move that now looks foolhardy, corrupt and amoral after the revelations of the crown prince’s role in the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Kushner’s role in prison reform, which he spoke about in his appearance with Hannity, may soon be the one bright spot on an otherwise dismal record.

He made the comments as part of an interview with his own nephew Sam Etsy Rayner, for Moz’s website.

‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.

“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.

The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:

Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
