2 Dumb 2 Collude?

Though Don Junior and Jared would appear to be screwed,
They’re testing a defense that is shrewd.
But if Kushner’s so wise
To give a president advice,
Will we believe that he’s too dumb to collude?

Outlaws and In-Laws

It must be a cross to bear for Donald Senior,
To have a son as dumb as Donald Junior.
But that chip off the block
Might end up chipping up rocks,
Doing hard time with co-colluder Jared Kushner.

What’s in a Meeting?

Kushner says the meeting was about making America great.
Gorkov says the meeting was about making money in real estate.
Who should we believe,
The princeling or the KGB?
Doesn’t matter — either the meeting or the lie could seal Jared’s fate.

CIA Would Consider Kushner’s Actions Espionage

“I don’t want to overstate this because obviously there is a lot we don’t know… But I can’t keep out of my mind the thought that, if an American intelligence officer had done anything like this, we’d consider it espionage.”

— Former acting CIA director John McLaughlan, responding to reports that Jared Kushner “discussed setting up a secret communications line between Trump’s transition team and the Kremlin, The Hill reports.

Anything But Speeches

When Trump needs something, Jared’s his standby,
From Middle East Peace to Russian elites, he’s just fly.
But when it came to speeches,
Kushner overreaches,
He said, “I’m not a f*cking speechwriter, I’m a real-estate guy!”

Mar-A-Lago Showdown

President Trump finally laid down the law:
Bannon and Kushner’s relations must thaw.
Bannon called Kush a “cuck,”
But he’s pressing his luck —
If forced to choose, Trump will back his son-in-law.

Kushner Lied to Get Security Clearance

“When Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, sought the top-secret security clearance that would give him access to some of the nation’s most closely guarded secrets, he was required to disclose all of his encounters with foreign government officials over the last seven years. … “But Mr. Kushner omitted any mention of dozens of contacts he has had with foreign leaders or officials in recent months. They include a December meeting with the Russian ambassador, Sergey I. Kislyak, and another with the head of a Russian state-owned bank, Vnesheconombank, which was arranged at the behest of Mr. Kislyak.”

Kushner Ain’t a Robert Kennedy

“Kushner hadn’t served a day on a school board before Trump put him in charge of, you know, America. Near as I can tell, his sole achievement in his young life — much like his wife’s — is to have spent his parents’ money on cool stuff, like some buildings and a once trendy newspaper you’ve never read.”
