‘A World of Sh*t’: Ivanka & Jared Feeling the Heat As Trump Administration Burns Out
Kushner and Ivanka are not living the dream
A lot of events have transpired in the past few weeks regarding the Trump Administration and its political ambitions and opposition. The President has traveled outside the country as part of a 12-day trip to visit various nations in Asia, including: Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam, and the Philippines. The Treasury Department reenacted restrictions against the Cuba, going against the progress made by the Obama Administration. And Trump-backed candidate Ed Gillespie lost the Virginia gubernatorial race.
But of course the biggest news break was Robert Mueller’s investigation finally beginning the judicial process of charging people. What initially started as a probe against collusion between members of the Trump Campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential election grew into a bigger thread as Mueller expanded into the business background of Trump.
While only three individuals have been charged at the moment, many more are reportedly being primed, while other sources allege that two of those targets are Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner. Trump Jr. gained infamy when it was disclosed that he had attended a meeting with a Kremlin lawyer arranged by someone supposed to be a family friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s in June 2016 (which makes it pretty obvious why he could be one of Mueller’s future arrests).
Kushner is a slightly different case. He raised alarms from the public when he was almost-immediately given high-level security clearance (something that turned out to be an error-driven process), but was mostly humorous fodder until The Guardian revealed that he had business ties to a Russian company represented by the aforementioned Kremlin lawyer. Though Kushner attempted to scapegoat Trump Jr. for the entire ordeal, the damage was already done.
Some of Kushner’s businesses have started to face financial peril, and wife Ivanka (who some have suggested is basically the other First Lady) have been affected. While they try to maintain a normal appearance outwardly, an anonymous source claiming to be close to the family had this surprising thing to say about their situation:
“They’re in a world of shit. He may seem cool, but he’s sweating, and she’s like her father. She’ll never acknowledge it and [will] blame the media. But she’s been working on her reputation forever, and now it’s going to suffer horrifically.”
How true that is has yet to be determined, but there is no doubt in anyone’s mind that the Trump Administration is facing some severe strains, no matter how many distractions Trump evokes in the media, or how much he blames it all on the very same media.
