Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump
With the first 100 days of Donald Trump coming to a close, we see who is really running the white House Did America elect Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner? HBO's Last Week Tonight with John Oliver explores why this is so problematic

Last Week Tonight from HBO has been on top of it, and I hope you’ve been paying attention. You’ll want to refer back to this. As usual, John Oliver does an incredible job of delivering useful and pertinent information while remaining funny. This clip includes several nuggets, about a woman who seemingly is the most powerful person in the world, and her father.

One of those clips, is from when Ivanka Trump is asked about what she has in common with her father, she gives a reasonable answer. She talks about their business interests, which are pretty obvious. Then, Donald Trump, says sex?

That isn’t even a new clip, and many people saw it during the election. People (Russia?) elected him anyways.

Now that he’s in office, we’ve seen that his ‘children’ are actually calling shots. Is that what America actually voted for? Gayle King, shown in the clip interviewed Ivanka and we hear it once again. “My father agrees with me on most issues and where we disagree, he knows where I stand.”

Why does that even matter? Did Ivanka Trump Run for President?

That quote from “The Trump Card”, her own book sounds a lot like a quote from Trump’s book, the Art of the Deal. Perception is more important than reality? Ladies and gentlemen, we need to take these sales people seriously. They are more than willing to fool us, and is that what they’ve done?

Did America Elect Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner?

Meanwhile her husband, Jared Kushner has been popping up all over the administration. If it were my guess, I’d say that’s because Ivanka has ordered that he get those roles. She seems to be calling the shots, like a real life Cersei Lannister from Game of Thrones. Jared, is ‘like a son’ to Donald.

Dare I make a Jamie Lannister comparison?

Will there be a Plot Twist, where he ends up becoming, borderline Heroic? Some of what came out of the removal of Steve Bannon from the NSC had to do with disagreements, with Jared. Supposedly.  I mean you never really know what’s reality when you’re dealing with this ‘level’ of immoral sales person. They could very well be going after the same goals, but have chosen to use a softer face.

Are we going to be saying, “Where’s The Kush?” much longer?

I suppose, time will tell. Like so many things that will still do not understand, perhaps we’ll never understand any of what’s unfolding right in front of us. By the time people really discover what’s going on, it may very well be too late. We’ve ignored all the warning signs, and have continued down a road …. that we were supposed to get off of.

However, as I scroll through social media I read what’s on the thoughts of the people. The ‘white surprise’ over not only the rise of Donald Trump, but his continued support from his base is baffling to me. What I Mean by that is, people are surprised, that folks are still in support of this circus.

Of course his base is going to stick by his side… That’s what people do, especially when they fuck up.

They hold even tighter to their decision, and act like it was the right thing to do even if it wasn’t.  So many things drove people to cast a vote for Trump, or worse a 3rd party candidate Meanwhile, Last week Tonight was there, warning us that this is what we’d get.
