Remember the Bannon scandal and all the infighting within the West Wing of the White House? All of it revolved around Jared and Ivanka.
They spent their first year in Washington as an untouchable White House power couple, commanding expansive portfolios, outlasting rivals and enjoying unmatched access to the president. But Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump have undergone a swift and stunning reckoning of late, their powers restricted, their enemies emboldened and their future in the West Wing uncertain.
Kushner, long the second-most powerful man in the West Wing, is under siege. President Donald Trump’s son-in-law has lost influential White House allies. He remains under the shadow of the Russia probe and has seen his business dealings come under renewed scrutiny. He has been stripped of his top security clearance, raising questions how he can successfully advance his ambitious agenda — including achieving Mideast peace, a goal that has eluded presidents for generations.
Kushner’s most powerful patron, the president himself, has wavered recently on whether his daughter and son-in-law belong in the White House anymore.
A frustrated Trump has griped about the wave of bad headlines generated by probes into Kushner’s business dealings and the status of his security clearance, according to two people familiar with the president’s thinking but not authorized to publicly discuss private conversations. The president also has wondered aloud if the couple would be better off returning home to New York.
Good introduction. All that seems true. And enter Kelly, who has some choice words for the Javanka couple.
Kelly, in turn, has been angered by what he views as the couple’s freelancing. He blames them for changing Trump’s mind at the last minute and questions what exactly they do all day, according to one White House official and an outside ally. Kushner prevailed in previous power struggles within the White House, including one against former chief strategist Steve Bannon, but allies of the president on the outside openly cheered the power couple’s weakened position.
Is this finally the end of the Jared-Ivanka axis?
For an entire year, we’ve had to grind our teeth and watch these libshit idiots from New York whisper into Trump’s ear and derail our MAGA agenda.
Hopefully, Trump has wisened up and gotten rid of them.
No one voted for Ivanka and Kusher. They hate average Americans because they are New York liberals who are terrified of what their liberal Jewish peers think of their father/father-in-law.
I can see Ivanka whining to Trump, “but daddy, they won’t let me into da club because you’re being mean to Mexicans.”
Worse, I can see Trump actually listening to her.
But again, hopefully, that’s all over now.
