    After watching pre/post election media reports and after scanning the stories on that site I think only a brainless fool would believe such anonymous rubbish.

    The media and haters have destroyed their own credibility. When they finally find something newsworthy it won't be respected. And they'll be their own fault.

    It's the tabloid side of politics and should be taken with a grain of salt.

    I am however, looking forward to progress reports on Jared's many responsibilities ... any one of which would keep a normal person fully occupied. Hopefully, he's good at delegating.

    Huh? As a consumer I can blame the ethics and question the intelligence of readers who parrots it back refusing to critically question what's been written.

    why we are the consumers we consume they profit the American way. we want the news we get and they provide it. if they did not make money off that news they would change it. people don't want the pain facts they want entertainment.

    Maybe we should be more like you guys. Create complete welfare socialism, no desire to make money, that way everyone will be lazy and expect government handouts, no one will want to work hard and innovate, because there's no financial incentive to do so.

    I agree it's tabloid politics. Good description.

    I really dont know what to think of Jared. I assume he has something going for himself but I would not be surprised Trump is merely trying to build his resume.

    what has this got to do with it? its just the price you pay for blind profit. when money is the only concern you get questionable ethics .nothing to do with a welfare state thats just the way we are we get what we pay for.

    Protectionism, which is what Trump is aiming for, does exactly that. Not socialism.

    Out of curiosity, what's your job/line of work?

    Jared Kushner should not be in a position of power or trust in the White House in the first place; this is nepotism pure and simple.

    Professionally, he has neither the experience nor qualifications to hold the positions he does, and personally to have appointed him is an egregious example of nepotism. That some of the more right wing posters cannot even see this leads me to conclude that their moral compasses are more skewed than I had assumed.

    Let us adjust the focus on those warped lenses a minute: Just imagine the screams and shrieks of howling outrage, if, 1), President Hillary Clinton had appointed Chelsea Clinton to such powerful and influential positions, and 2) the whiff of cordite currently lingering around Jared Kushner were to be scented around Chelsea Clinton.

    So: A question to those who keep seeking to invoke the presidency of Barack Obama, and thrill to criticising Hillary Clinton:

    1: Is nepotism questionable only if Democrats do it?

    2: Is nepotism acceptable under the current regime, sorry, administration?

    3: Is there any reason on earth to have appointed Jared Kushner to this/these positions? Apart from familial propinquity, of course.

    1. Yes, had Hillary not been hilariously slapped to the curb and appointed Chelsea it might have been nepotism...depending on the position. It's a feeble argument because it didn't happen and the targeted position unknown. Utterly pointless hypothetical.

    2. Who is whining about democrats and nepotism? Was Robert Kennedy's appointment nepotism? Apparently you agree with our (United States) anti-nepotism enacted thereafter.

    3. No matter how much you disagree with his appointment it's just an opinion without any factual basis. His appointment was (a) cleared of anti-nepotism law and (b) probably didn't need clearance anyway.

    You might want to take a little time to become acquainted with nepotism laws in politics. I can help you with a link or two if you'd like.

    We both know you'd be up in arms if Hilary had appointed Chelsea to any position at the White House.

    Since when is any such argument considered compelling? If x happened you'd be y therefore...

    Why not give support using genuine facts and examples that actually exist?

    Jared really helped Trump win the election through his connections to data targeting, social media and ad buys. He's a smart guy. But how he helped Trump win the election can't be applied across the board to his other "responsibilities."

    You realize there is something between "OMG no one makes any money and we're all sucking one the socialist government tit" and "Let's pay the CEO $50 million, the other execs $10 million, generate $10 billion in profit, and pay the workers $8 an hour".

    You are in the world you created and support. A country full of low-paid workers who you must support. Thumbs up, bro!

    My opinion is of Trump is irrelevant to whether or not the media and haters are objective or credible.

    I can be pro-choice and can still think the following are stupid:

    1. abortion is good because it leads to fearless better sexy
    2. abortion is good because it reduces global warming

    It is relevant about how you parse info. If you automatically reject what you consider to be left wing news, and automatically deny what has been shown to be the mountain of Trump's lies, then it illustrates serious bias on your part.

    Despite what one may think of the media or media persons, it is what it is, and it is what we have. It's not like Trump or Kushner will raise their pinky fingers and tell us what they have been up to.
