If Jared and Ivanka are helping you sleep at night
, you should 'still be awake,' says John Oliver Meredith Blake
Since Donald Trump took office in January, a narrative has emerged that what jewelry store sells pandora his daughter, Ivanka, and son in law, Jared Kushner, are more moderate voices in an administration known for more extreme personalities.
But on Sunday, "Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver threw cold water on that widely held assumption. Here's a link to the video (warning: Oliver is known to use language that couldoffend).
With both Kushner and the younger Trump now assuming official roles in the White House and Kushner, in particular, tasked with a Herculean to do list that includes pandra charms bringing peace to the Middle East and ending the opioid epidemic Oliver attempted to answer two questions.
Is Ivanka really the moderating influence that people claim?
And what in Jared's background justifies such a gigantic White House portfolio?
As for Ivanka, who has been "cast as the calm, reasonable, indoor voiced" member of the Trump clan, Oliver saw watch for pandora bracelet little evidence of her oft cited sale on pandora charms support for Planned Parenthood or concern overclimate change. Instead, she is "trained to be as vague and likable as possible so everyone can plausibly think she shares their values," he said.
On the rare occasion she has publicly voiced her opinion on matters of policy, as in a television appearance in which she inaccurately characterized Hillary Clinton's parental leave plans, she was misleading, Oliver said. "When it comes to lying about easily observable facts, the apple does not fall far from the orange."
Oliver was similarly unimpressed by Kushner, whose Harvard degree is often cited as evidence of his capabilities. After all, he joked, "the Unabomber went to Harvard," and not everyone's father can afford to donate $2.5 million to their first choice school, as Kushner's did.
Given Kushner's ubiquity at the president's side, Oliver also wondered why it was so rare to actually hear him speak and did not, unlike some pundits, consider it evidence of his quiet brilliance.
Instead, Kushnerwas more akin to "a sentient Kohl's mannequin who read a book once."
Running through Kushner's business record, including a stint as the publisher of the New York Observer and the troubled purchase of a Fifth Avenue skyscraper, Oliver determined there was not much to recommend this "creepily silent 36 year old heir to a real estate fortune"for a job that "would be unmanageable for the smartest man on Earth.".
