Is Jared Kushner going to be named the new White House chief of staff? LOL.

President Trump Hosts a meeting with inner city pastors

Historically, the White House chief of staff position is one of the most powerful positions in the country. The chief of staff controls the president’s schedule, controls access to the president from staffers and outsiders, and has a huge say in the short-term and long-term agenda of a presidency. But in the Trump White House, the COS position is little more than a babysitter and fall guy, and the position would put any person in instant legal jeopardy. At least two men – Nick Ayers and Mark Meadows – have already turned down the job. Trump says he has other candidates. But what if he doesn’t? Why if he keeps it in-family?

Having run through his first choices for his chief of staff vacancy without any luck, President Donald Trump is considering his own son-in-law for the job. Jared Kushner, the husband of Trump’s daughter Ivanka and already an official White House adviser, met with Trump Wednesday about the job, a top Republican close to the White House told HuffPost. He and two others close to Trump or the White House who confirmed Kushner’s interest in the position did so on condition of anonymity to discuss the president’s staffing considerations freely.

Kushner has been pushing his own candidacy with Trump, citing his work on a criminal justice reform package and a claimed ability to work with Democrats, one person said. “I don’t know why he thinks that, when the Democrats are mainly going to be coming after Trump,” the source said. The White House did not respond to HuffPost’s queries about Kushner’s prospects for the job.

Trump told reporters Thursday that he is down to five finalists. “We are interviewing people now for chief of staff,” he said at a photo opportunity with newly elected governors who were visiting the White House.

Let’s do this. Having Jared as COS will actually make some kind of idiotic sense – Jared and Ivanka are reportedly the ones “vetting” COS candidates, because it’s important to THEM that any COS keep them around as Daddy’s babysitter. Plus, Jared and Ivanka are still looting the system and profiting from their positions, so why not just eliminate any internal watchdogs by making Jared COS? The reason why people are like “hey, let’s do that” is because it will be so much easier to connect Jared to a million crimes if he’s COS. We also want Jared as COS because he’s an idiot with terrible political instincts, and giving him more power will speed up this whole “burn it all down” process.

Speaking of Kushner’s terrible political instincts, did you hear that 2019 might be all about Robert Mueller indicting people because of all the Trump shenanigans in the Middle East? That’s about Jared too.

    Well I mean he did single handedly bring peace to the middle east a few months ago. Remember there was a photo shoot and everything.

  2. Christin says:

    Who else would want the job, given how hot it’s getting? It is probably 24/7 of TV watching, cheeseburger eating, ranting and tweeting.

    • boredblond says:

      And that will leave time for him to be the new U.N. delegate!

    • Swack says:

      Can’t be too hard. I look at Trumps agenda daily and the biggest events he has done are a speech in Kansas City and going to the Army/Navy game. So keeping Trump’s schedule would be a nothing burger.

      • Christin says:

        At least JK already has a lawyer. Anyone entering this circus needs one.

        The job may be light on scheduling, but seems heavy on legal risk.

    • BchyYogi says:

      So apparently MulVaney, who de-regulated predatory lenders- his reputations is low enough for an “I don’t care, do you” type of jobby job among ” The Best People”. To call it a “swamp” is derogatory to delicate billabongs, can we start calling it a cesspool??

  3. Gina says:

    I’ve been thinking he’ll be the next COS for a couple days now.
    I know that there are other “candidates” but serious candidates, good candidates for the position, no.

    • jwoolman says:

      Stephen Colbert has offered to become the next Chief of Staff. He cheerfully admits he has no experience and will not be able to reduce the Trumpian chaos one bit, but thinks it would be a fun job…. I assume he intends to maintain his current job on the Late Show, which will mean some problems with any non-disclosure agreement.

      I would say Colbert might have trouble with the security clearance, but if Jared still has one – guess not. At least all of Colbert’s contacts with Russians have been fully disclosed with commentary, on tv.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I think they are having a hard time finding candidates who actually want the job. Kushner has the Trump stink all over himself already, so he doesn’t fear the position like smart people would.

  4. Miss Jupitero says:

    I’m popping popcorn for this one…..

  5. Gina says:

    Also – SUPER excited about the news that Mueller is going to be investigating the middle east as well!!!

    This is an early Christmas gift!!

    • jwoolman says:

      Actually, although the original idea was to investigate Russian connections with the Trump campaign – they really should be looking closely at Trumpian connections with Saudi Arabia especially. Don’t know if they donated to his campaign, but they certainly are financially tight with the Trumps and Kushner since the election.

      Trump is exhibiting the same behavior toward the Saudis that he has toward Putin. He excuses everything bad they do and insists that they have told him convincingly that they didn’t do anything wrong, and he believes them over all the intelligence people.

      • BchyYogi says:

        Supposedly trump corp set up shell companies WITH the saudi “inaugural funds”. Popcorn please, and may the plot end in an ocean of orange jump suits!

  6. HK9 says:

    What??!!?? Hahahaha. Bwahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Woohoohooooooooooooooooo, haha.

    Now seriously~who’s really going to get the job.

  7. Rapunzel says:

    Not that we’re following laws or anything nowadays, but wouldn’t it be illegal for him to hire Jared as his CoS?

    • jan90067 says:

      It was illegal for them to have jobs in the WH in the first place. But when did a little thing like nepotism laws get in the way of the Orange Mushroom???

      And, uhm… aren’t they forgetting a little pesky thing like his lowered security clearance (and changing his forms, what 40 times???) How could he even, in ANY possibility, be “considered” for that??

  8. Lila says:

    Its like asking your cousin to the prom when everyone else has said no to you.

    • Beth says:

      Lol. Exactly! So bigly desperate and pathetic, that maybe only family will take the top job working for the POTUS, proves how bad things are.

      • jan90067 says:

        Not just desperate and pathetic, but PARANOID at this point too! He probably doesn’t trust anyone not to flip on him now lol

    • Veronica S. says:

      You’d have to be ambitious to the point of stupidity to get involved in that mess right now. Congress just issued a rebuke against the Saudis and Trump, which means even his own party is starting to see that the ship is sinking and is making appropriate moves to distance themselves.

  9. Eric says:

    Invest in popcorn futures stat because 2019 is going to be the year of the trump. In my scenario, Jared counts as a trump (whether or not he becomes CoS)…so, with that being said,

    five “trumps” will be indicted in 2019 and three will be sentenced to more than 5 years in prison

    Asset forfeiture for you! Subpoena for you! Indictments for all! Jail time for you!

    I’m a gambling man and I’m rolling the dice that Junior, Jared, and Emperor Zero get indicted AND are sentenced to prison. The other two, Eric and Ivanka, get off by turning states evidence after indictments.

    🎲 🍿

    • Gina says:

      I so hope you are right!

    • jan90067 says:

      I AGREE!! 🍾🥂🍿🎇🎆

    • minx says:

      Yep, Eric, you’re correct.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I just read on CNN about the “MUELLER MAYHEM” at the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit today.

      They cleared an entire floor of people, including the attorney coat closet! The elevators stopped even opening their doors on that floor! Attorneys secretly entered the court house.

      Apparently the justices were hearing about a Mueller related issue that was the most closely guarded thing to enter into court so far, probably something related to a grand jury subpoena.

  10. Tiffany says:

    So Demonic Orangutan is going to offer a COS position to someone who cannot even pass a basic background check.

    Yep, sounds about right.

  11. French girl says:

    I am going to be positive about this post.Nice dress for Ivanka.
    Another thought is seriously ?!!!

  12. StellainNH says:

    Does he have the security clearance for the job?

    • Lightpurple says:

      After the FBI refused to give him and Nagini security clearances because they both repeatedly lied on the forms, the two imbeciles couldn’t get their lies straight and kept exposing the other, Trump ordered that exceptions be made for the two of them and they were given clearances.

  13. Sue Denim says:

    The thing on her dress is hideous… Looks like what we use to keep the draft out from under doors… But seriously, they really have no shame do they…

  14. OSTONE says:

    Let him get the job! So they can further incriminate themselves and make more mistakes! Wasn’t he the one behind Comey’s firing?

  15. Lightpurple says:

    Please, can we drop the idea that Nagini is babysitting Orange Voldy? She isn’t. She strongly supports and agrees with everything he says and does. She is there to use his office to maximize family profits. If people die as a result, she doesn’t care

    • jan90067 says:

      ^^^^THIS!! ALL DAY, THIS!!

      And you KNOW she’ll do somersaults flipping on The Orange Mushroom aka Individual 1, as well as her brothers, and even her plastic Ken Doll husband to save her own flat a$$… in a heartbeat!

  16. Rhys says:

    Does anyone remember the interview where Van Jones straight up asked him: “so, how did you get this job?” You have to see it. It’s right after the two of them sat down on stage.
    People need to ask this Peter Pan that question everywhere he goes.

  17. jwoolman says:

    Jared would be perfect for the job. He doesn’t know much and will do whatever Donald tells him to do. Which is what Donald wants. Nothing will change except the farce of having an adult in the room.

  18. adastraperaspera says:

    Mob family circling the wagons. Until they all turn on each other to reduce their prison sentences, that is.

  19. Miss Gloss says:

    What is his star pin all about? Nothing is coincidence so just wondering🤔🤔🤔

    • Natalia says:

      The 5-pointed star he’s wearing is pointing downward. Its certainly not the Star of David.

  20. Pandy says:

    I guess he’s lowered his sights from Bringer of World Peace to Cheetoh Wrangler. About his speed.

  21. themummy says:

    I have nothing to offer to to this conversation (except endless vomit and angry emojis, but I won’t bother with that). I’m just here to comment on Ivanka’s giraffe-length neck. It makes me stop and stare every single time. Really, really odd.

    And nope. I don’t feel even a little bit bad for breaking my policy against discussing women’s bodies (especially when there is so much other, better content–such as with the Grifter Family).

  22. Nuzzy says:

    Boy, he’ll need a software update for that!

  23. L says:

    If you’re going to pick on something physical about Ivanka, I think the chin implant is a better choice. I cannot unsee that thing, it looks so unnatural.

    I must stand up for long necks.. they’re beautiful… swan like.

  24. holly hobby says:

    Go ahead it will make it easier for the DOJ to drag him down for his crimes. Why isn’t he appting daughter wife? They can make eyes at each other 24/7 in the oval?

    How about Plastic Kim G. I noticed she’s been awfully quiet lately. Did she jump ship? Ann Coulter Lite – Lara Rump is also a good candidate.

  25. Cara says:

    Good Lord. This motley crew we have as our government right now is such a joke. 🙄
