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 president’s elder daughter, Ivanka Trump, has been tapped by the commander in chief to oversee the β€œoverhaul” of the government bureaucracy.

β€œAnd the government desperately needs overhaul,” Colbert said on the β€œLate Show” Monday night. β€œI mean, somebody keeps putting totally unqualified people in charge of really important stuff. That’s gotta stop!”

Colbert cracked that the original title of Kushner’s new β€œOffice of American Innovation” was the β€œBureau of Obvious Nepotism.”
