Jared Kushner: "Basically a shithead"

Jared Kushner is an abusive landlord and, according to someone who worked for him at the New York Observer, "is basically a shithead."

Harleen Kahlon was an experienced digital media maven when she was hired by Kushner in 2010 to boost the paper’s digital outreach. The two worked closely to redesign the website, with a weekly one-on-one meeting in her office in which Kushner would come in, put his feet up on her desk and check in on the progress of the site’s redesign, for which he hired one of New York’s top digital firms...

At the end of the year, when she went to collect her performance bonus at his real estate office for meeting agreed upon metrics on page views and audience growth, Kushner told her that they couldn’t pay, citing financial concerns, and asked her to “take one for the team.” Instead, Kahlon abruptly quit. Ever since, whenever she sees him on TV or on the streets of New York, she points him out to people as: “the guy that stole my money.”

Just before the election, Kahlon described her former boss on Facebook thusly: “We’re talking about a guy who isn’t particularly bright or hard-working, doesn’t actually know anything, has bought his way into everything ever (with money he got from his criminal father), who is deeply insecure and obsessed with fame (you don’t buy the NYO, marry Ivanka Trump, or constantly talk about the phone calls you get from celebrities if it’s in your nature to ‘shun the spotlight’), and who is basically a shithead.” (Meet the Real Jared Kushner)

All that happened if one was to define it correctly is that an administration was trying to setup communications. Which is normal for government even tho publicly they may be talking shit about another country. Backchannel undetwxted etc is all just one would call an " encrypted line". Very normal.

"Normal" for an incoming administration to propose setting up "communications" with the Russian government in the Russian embassy? Why not wait until Trump takes office to communicate with the Russians through normal channels? The answer: Kushner and other Trump associates didn't want American intelligence agencies to listen in on conversations about dropping sanctions on Russia.

Yes! It's very normal. The encrypted communications channels are set up and handled by our intelligence. We have one with the U.K. We have one with China etc. not to surprise you but we also have one with Venezuela. In this case everybody is making a big deal because the news today is all about Russia. You don't hear about setting up communications with the U.K. During that same time now do you?
These types of communications are called keeping "others" from listening in on the convo. And the way government works this very much setting things up through proper channels. I don't really care about trump nor do I care much about CNN either. But Incoming presidents don't wait until after taking the oath of office to get the ball rolling. It's called the presidential transition act. You should check it out.

As they say, the apple does not fall far from the tree...his father,Kushner was sentenced to two years in prison[15] and served 14 months at Federal Prison Camp, Montgomery in Alabama[18][19] before being sent to a halfway house in Newark, New Jersey to complete his sentence.[18][19][20] He was released from prison on August 25, 2006.[21]" Wiki

I really believe you learn from your parents...everyone...the rich and poor. If you have good parents and taught the basics of right and wrong you will grow up good. As corny as that sounds.

Thanks for the Breitbart talking points. Yes, the context is everything. It is all about Russia, of course. And why exactly did Kushner/Trump not want US intelligence listening in? Were the back-channels you refer to kept secret from the FBI and the CIA? I doubt it. Like his father-in-law, Kushner is way in over his head, another know-nothing jerk and slumlord.

Kushner and the Trump administration are incompetent and shockingly stupid. Their other policies are like a parody of a conservative government---stupid, nasty, contemptuous of women, the poor, and the non-white---and possibly even treasonous.

I hope the Trump fiasco deals a near-fatal blow to the Republican Party, leaving it a powerless, crackpot faction that it deserves to be.
