The worst political adviser in the White House in modern history

Trump thinks it’s all so unfair.

Trump, meanwhile, has reacted to the deteriorating situation by lashing out on Twitter and venting in private to friends. He’s frustrated that the investigation seems to have no end in sight. “Trump wants to be critical of Mueller,” one person who’s been briefed on Trump’s thinking says. “He thinks it’s unfair criticism. Clinton hasn’t gotten anything like this. And what about Tony Podesta? Trump is like, When is that going to end?” According to two sources, Trump has complained to advisers about his legal team for letting the Mueller probe progress this far. Speaking to Steve Bannon on Tuesday, Trump blamed Jared Kushner for his role in decisions, specifically the firings of Mike Flynn and James Comey,that led to Mueller’s appointment, according to a source briefed on the call. When Roger Stone recently told Trump that Kushner was giving him bad political advice, Trump agreed, according to someone familiar with the conversation. “Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history,” Nunberg said. “I’m only saying publicly what everyone says behind the scenes at Fox News, in conservative media, and the Senate and Congress.”

Oh, gee, so I guess we shouldn’t all have told him to hire Kushner?

No, that’s not it; he shouldn’t have hired Kushner, not least because there’s a law against it. If it’s biting him in the ass now I don’t see what we can do other than laugh.

Surprise surprise: a real estate manager whose father went to prison for illegal campaign contributions, tax evasion, and witness tampering, turns out to be not very good at political advising. Who could have foreseen that? Why wouldn’t he be brilliant at something he knows nothing whatever about? It’s all so puzzling.
