Republicans Reportedly Stunned by How Dumb Jared Kushner Actually Is

The bloom may finally be off the rose for White House wunderkind Jared Kushner, who managed to deeply underwhelm a group of GOP lawmakers with his extremely half-baked ideas to overhaul the United States’ immigration policies.

Speaking at the Republican Senate’s weekly luncheon on Tuesday, Kushner reportedly stumbled when asked about specifics of the White House’s plans, and had to repeatedly be rescued by the Trump administration’s chief white nationalist, Stephen Miller, who was forced to leap in to answer questions Kushner couldn’t, the Washington Post reported.

Among Kushner’s failures was a reported inability to articulate to Texas Sen. John Cornyn how his plan would address undocumented immigrants already living in the U.S.

The skepticism Jared reportedly encountered doesn’t seem to bode well for the first son-in-laws other White House assignments, which include bringing peace to the Middle East and overhauling the entirety of the federal government.

17. You want to know how I implicitly understand we are totally fucked?

The very idea that Stephen Miller is called on to "rescue" anyone, for anything, EVER!
That fucker is the very epitome of a vampire...just one who hates immigrants and is racist as the day is long.

None of that clan EVER struck me as being even of average intelligence, just a gang of grifters along for the ride as Daddy Ass Ferret gets away with stealing, lying and then stealing some more and lying some more...

STOP THE WORLD, I NEED TO VOMIT!!!

20. In reality it's actually Stephen Miller's immigration plan, not Jared's

Miller obviously wrote the speech and devised the strategies, that's why he stood up and answered the questions. Jared-boy had no clue what it was about, probably hadn't even read the speech before he went up to the podium.

24. No, no, no....

....their perception of his stupidity bodes great for him having important future roles.

The Kushtrumpsters are just figure heads for policies of White Nationalism, endless arms deals, deregulation and moving money up to the 1%.

That is all that matters.

They all know that Miller and McConnell are really in charge and will take care of everything.

This meeting was all Kabuki.

28. Exactly. Miller 'stepping in' was just Miller explaining policies he creates when Kushner couldn't

even follow the script written for him.

There are zero modern Republicans possessing as much of an intellect as a potato, not that I intend to denigrate potatoes with the comparison.

Hearing Jared speak for the first time reminded me of my friend from high school.

44. Did Ivanka have to console him afterward?

Did she come out from under the desk in the oval office to give him a hug?

Maybe his mother in law should give him lessons in following a script and elocution.
