White House Announces Jared Kushner Is Now Responsible For Everything
Donald Trump really needs to meet some new people.
So, if you’re keeping track, Jared Kushner, who comes to Washington with no government experience, no policy experience, no diplomatic experience, and business experience limited to his family’s real estate development firm, a brief stint as a newspaper publisher, and briefly bidding to acquire the Los Angeles Dodgers, will be working on trade, Middle East policy in general, an Israel-Palestine peace deal more specifically, reforming the Veterans Administration, and solving the opioid crisis.
Oh wait, that’s not all! Apparently, this new office will also be responsible for “modernizing the technology and data infrastructure of every federal department and agency; remodeling workforce-training programs; and developing “transformative projects” under the banner of Trump’s $1 trillion infrastructure plan, such as providing broadband internet service to every American.”
We have certainly come a long way from “I alone can fix it.”
I couldn’t get a job as a manager at Uniqlo when I first moved here because, even though I’d been assistant manager of a Gap for 3 years, it was in SC and I didn’t have enough New York retail experience.
I couldn’t get a job at Buzzfeed like 6 years ago because I didn’t have any experience and I guess you need lots of it to write listicles.
I couldn’t get a job as an admin assistant at a nonprofit a few years ago because even though I had 2 years of experience, they were looking for someone with 3 to 5.
So. The next job I apply for will be “running the country” because that seems to be something I’m qualified to do given the makeup of Washington at the moment.
