I don’t know what Jared Kushner, the real President of the United States, is good at, but one of his skills must be back-stabbing. I know, he looks like butter won’t melt in his mouth, but it’s the quiet ones you have to watch out for. Remember, his father was a real estate developer in New Jersey and a convicted criminal. You don’t make a pile of dough in that game without using your bare knuckles. Now Jared, like his father-in-law, didn’t actually make any money; he inherited it. But he had to have learned something at the family dinner table and it wasn’t foreign policy.
So it tells us something that Jared’s first political success–okay only political success–is getting Steve Bannon kicked off the National Security Council, a place he never belonged anyway. Why? Back-stabbing. Bannon had used his personal relationship with Trump to wiggle his way into a seat where no political advisor belongs or had ever held, possibly by getting the Donald to sign an order to that effect which he had not read. Now Jared is letting the circular firing squad in the White House know that he’s the head honcho. This is not an established fact. That’s why they call it back-stabbing. But all that talk from Roger Stone about Jared leaking to Morning Joe suddenly makes sense. And if there is anything InfoWars is going to get right, it’s idle gossip.
Of course, General McMaster wanted Bannon off , but McMaster couldn’t fire the political flunkies who passed dubious information to Congressman Nunes, so how was he able to get rid of a heavy weight like Bannon?
