The brilliant John Oliver gave us a great take on Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner’s roles in the White House. Many people think that Ivanka and Jared will be moderate influences on the conservative President Donald Trump.
Kushner has been given a huge job of revamping the federal government, tackling the opioid crisis, and more. Oliver remarks that President Trump “can’t even get nepotism right.” Ivanka conveniently won’t say which issues she differs with her father on.
“I don’t know enough about them to eviscerate them. Just as you don’t know enough about them to justify putting any real hopes in them… If they are the reason you are sleeping at night, you should probably still be awake.”
She is often portrayed as the calm one in the family, but she is still a Trump.
Oliver also says:
“Jared Kushner is not Steve Bannon, but that is a low bar. That recommendation would get you no other job. We shouldn’t be excited about a top White House adviser simply because he is preferable to a man best described as every dark thought humanity has ever had inhabiting the long-dead corpse of a civil war-era plantation owner that even his fellow plantation owners called ‘a bit much’.”
