This guy can’t be this dumb. Trump I mean.
But I do think Jared Kushner might be this smart.
And he wouldn’t be the first son in law to want to destroy his father in law.
So he convinces the guy to fire the head of the FBI and do a lot of other things. Why? Probably because kushner himself is implicated for various bullshittery; he basically convinces trump, who can’t imagine being taken down by a chain of command that reports to him anyway, to can that dude who was the head of the FBI and become the new focus of an incoming probe. (That I can’t remember his name, former head of FBI, is reminiscent of my difficulty remembering the names in other low quality shows I’ve seen where characters seem to keep showing up and dying real fucking fast. Remember that kid on the motorcycle in breaking bad? And then Matt Damon II is like bam. Next.).
Trump does all these stupid things as a long chain of reactions to an initial radical decision to fire kushner…and he does so many that eventually trump definitely may as well fire mueller and everybody else who could prosecute Kushner. And Kushner went silent circa may 2017 and by next year will seem like a reasonable, baby faced, who knows what the fuck he even sounds like old democrat. Oh yeah, there’s that part. I mean, the dude is a democrat.
Kushner avoids scrutiny like a new moon near a bright orange mid day sun.
