Oliver’s Thoughts

Last Sunday night, John Oliver went on one of his classic rants – this time about the political “power couple”, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.

According to a recent Washington Post article, the president allegedly ordered that Jared and Ivanka be given top-level security clearance. Both Jared and Ivanka have denied they ever received special treatment from Donald.

The comedian had a scathing opening monologue regarding the couples’ “credentials” and their access to our nation’s top-secret classified information. First he laid into Jared Kushner’s lack of politcal prowess and referred to Jared as “Diminuitive Nothing Boy 1″…

Oliver also pointed-out that while Kushner has been brokering peace in the Middle East, and tackling the opioid epidemic, our national infrastructure, and the Office of American Innovation (all while traveling around the world) – it is “deeply worrisome” that baby-faced son-in-law looks so well-rested.

Oliver then joked that Ivanka got her position at the age of 24 in the Trump Organization and got her book deal, not because she’s a “business prodigy” or a “brilliant author” but because… wait for it…
she’s Donald’s fucking daughter!

Oliver goes on to explain that Ivanka’s denials regarding how she and her husband got security clearances were an assault on our intelligence. Followed by a brutal reality check for Ivanka…

Oliver: “Oh, please…
I honestly don’t know what’s
sadder there. Either Ivanka is knowingly lying about her dad forcing her and Jared’s security clearance through, or she genuinely thinks they got it on merit on their own.”

For now, we have no idea what Jared and Ivanka have done and are currently doing with the classified information.

Eventually, we will learn…
