Bang the drum slowly and lower the flags to half-staff today because Jared Kushner is leaving the world of politics and starting an investment firm. In other words, he’ll be using other people’s money to enrich himself, much the same as he did while serving as an “adviser” in the Trump administration, a job he only managed to land because his father-in-law was president.
According to Reuters:
“Kushner, the former chief executive of Kushner Companies, who served as the Republican president’s senior adviser in the White House, is in the final stages of launching an investment firm called Affinity Partners that will be headquartered in Miami,. Kushner, who is married to Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, is also looking to open an office in Israel to pursue regional investments to connect Israel’s economy and India, North Africa and the Gulf, said two people briefed on the plan, who spoke on condition of anonymity.”
That’s an interesting list of countries Jared will be focusing on. But one nation is missing: Russia. As we’ve seen on multiple occasions, Russian President Vladimir Putin has always been fond of backing useful idiots who can help him engineer his destruction of the United States. Putin already has his hooks in the failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president who was only elected with the help of several Russia’s intelligence agencies.
So Jared is leaving the political world? That makes sense when you consider that he’s 1 for 2 on presidential races and lost the second election for his father-in-law by a record drubbing in the popular vote and even saw Georgia swing towards Democrats in both the general election and the special Senate runoff.
Twitter had some thoughts on Jared’s career change:
Jared Kushner truly is the grift that keeps on giving.
