TRUMP'S RACIST BENDER RUINED JARED KUSHNER'S BIG DAY

TRUMP’S RACIST BENDER RUINED JARED KUSHNER’S BIG DAY
The boy prince of New Jersey’s immigration plan may have just been dealt a final death blow.

among the many tasks nepotism hire Jared Kushner thinks he’s eminently qualified to handle, solving peace in the Middle East and overhauling U.S. immigration rank at the very top. We know how the Mideast is going—his big plan has been called “the Monty Python sketch of Israeli-Palestinian peace initiatives,” and he recently tried to get Palestinian leadership on board by calling them “hysterical and stupid.” And, it turns out things are going about as smoothly for his immigration proposal, which the first son-in-law reportedly couldn’t even explain as of May, and which seemingly died an unceremonious death on Tuesday thanks to one Donald Trump. Per the Washington Post:

As the uproar over President Trump’s racist remarks demanding four minority Democratic lawmakers “go back [to countries] from which they came” continued to flare Tuesday, the White House prepared to roll out a plan that would detail the type of immigrants the administration wants to admit to the United States.

But the ongoing controversy over Trump’s comments got in the way of the White House’s initial plans, as a late-afternoon meeting with a half-dozen congressional Republican leaders on the administration’s new immigration bill was abruptly postponed amid an unexpectedly drawn-out fight on the floor of the House as lawmakers debated condemning Trump’s racist tweets…The White House did not indicate when or if the immigration briefing for the GOP leaders would be rescheduled.


Of course, the interruption to deal with Kushner’s racist father-in-law—who, incidentally, Kushner insisted last month is not racist at all—is far from the only hurdle the immigration plan is facing. Other stumbling blocks concern the fact that many lawmakers don’t want to touch the plan with a 1,000-foot pole, which is generally considered an impediment to getting legislation passed. “To get it to the floor, you have to have some bipartisan buy-in,” Senate Majority Whip John Thune, the chamber’s second-ranking Republican, told the Post. “There would have to be a lot of work that would get done, and I don’t sense that they’re anywhere close to having done that work with Republicans, let alone with Democrats.” In private, one GOP senator said: “I don’t think there’s any chance that we have any bandwidth to do that,” while a senior congressional aide commented that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell doesn’t want to “waste time” on a bill that has little chance of accumulating the necessary 60 votes to advance in the Senate.
