REVEALED: Rex Tillerson unloaded on Jared Kushner for ‘endangering the US’ with his incompetent foreign policy meddling

Published

on

A new book set for release on March 19th reveals that Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump clashed with multiple senior White House officials, who were concerned the couple mixed their government work and personal interests and lacked proper expertise for the work they were trying to do, reports The Guardian.

In her new book, journalist Vicky Ward describes tense confrontations between the couple, who serve as senior advisors to the President, and high level Trump aides.

Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reportedly blamed Kushner for Trump’s endorsement of a blockade of Qatar by Saudi Arabia, and told him that “his interference had endangered the US.”

Gary Cohn, Trump’s former economic advisor, confronted Kushner about dining with executives from a Chinese financial corporation considering investing in the Kushner family’s Manhattan tower.

“You’ve got to be crazy,” Cohn reportedly scolded Kushner.

Beyond obvious conflicts of interest, the couple was derided by White House insiders for meddling too much and lacking the skills for good governance. According to the Guardian, which obtained a copy of the book, Ward claims that White House staffers made fun of Kushner for trying to be “secretary of everything.” Ivanka Trump’s team was labeled Habi – “home of all bad ideas.”

Trump’s former chief of staff, John Kelly, said the couple was “just playing government.”

Kushner has endeavored to resolve the Israel-Palestine conflict, with no clear results. He also tried to repair the damage to Saudi Arabia’s reputation after the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Ivanka Trump has taken on women’s issues as a cause, but it’s not clear what concrete policy has resulted.

Nevertheless, the couple is said to have big ambitions, with Ivanka allegedly envisioning a Trump presidential dynasty. “She thinks she’s going to be president of the United States,” Cohn told Ward, according to The Guardian.

‘Washington is no longer functional’: Brian Williams admits he’s sad to report that ‘our government is broken’

Published

MSNBC anchor Brian Williams on Tuesday reported that America's federal government is broken.

"This was day 908 of the Trump Administration and while there is no joy in it, one way of summing up today is this: Our government’s broken, our politics are broken, Washington is no longer functional, and the cracks in our society are deepening," Williams reported.

"Much of this day was taken up by the discussion of racist statements by the president. Then tonight came the news that had so many people thinking back to when we were different, the death just tonight of retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens at the age of 99," he said.

Trump ignored being condemned by Congress and instead praised Republicans on Twitter for defending his racism

Published

President Donald Trump celebrated on Tuesday night despite the House of Representatives having voted earlier in the day to condemn his racist statements.

By a final vote of 240 to 187, Congress voted for a resolution saying, "Trump’s racist comments have legitimized fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color.”

The resolution said Congress “strongly condemns President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color by saying that our fellow Americans who are immigrants, and those who may look to the President like immigrants, should “go back” to other countries, by referring to immigrants and asylum seekers as “invaders,” and by saying that Members of Congress who are immigrants (or those of our colleagues who are wrongly assumed to be immigrants) do not belong in Congress or in the United States of America.”

The tortured madness of Donald Trump: It’s clear the president is out of his mind

Published

on

Where’s Shakespeare when we need him? Only the Bard of Avon could do literary justice to the tortured madness of Donald Trump, who fluctuates between petulant self-pity and weird self-praise.

His brags are especially weird because they usually involve achievements he hasn’t made. It’s as though his saying something makes it true — even though everyone except his most naive devotees can clearly see that he’s either hallucinating or lying. In June, for example, at a rally launching his reelection campaign, he retrumpeted an old campaign promise to “drain the swamp,” assuring the adoring crowd that “that’s exactly what we’re doing right now.”
