Colbert Takes On Jared Kushner, Chief White House Nepotism Beneficiary

Stephen Colbert mocked President Donald Trump for hiring his own son-in-law for a key job in a newly created department.

Jared Kushner, who is married to the presidentโ€™s elder daughter, Ivanka Trump, has been tapped by the commander in chief to oversee the โ€œoverhaulโ€ of the government bureaucracy.

โ€œAnd the government desperately needs overhaul,โ€ Colbert said on the โ€œLate Showโ€ Monday night. โ€œI mean, somebody keeps putting totally unqualified people in charge of really important stuff. Thatโ€™s gotta stop!โ€

Colbert cracked that the original title of Kushnerโ€™s new โ€œOffice of American Innovationโ€ was the โ€œBureau of Obvious Nepotism.โ€
