Trump Taps Kushner to Lead a SWAT Team to Fix Government With Business Ideas

From the Washington Post:

President Trump plans to unveil a new White House office on Monday with sweeping authority to overhaul the federal bureaucracy and fulfill key campaign promises — such as reforming care for veterans and fighting opioid addiction — by harvesting ideas from the business world and, potentially, privatizing some government functions.

The White House Office of American Innovation, to be led by Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, will operate as its own nimble power center within the West Wing and will report directly to Trump. Viewed internally as a SWAT team of strategic consultants, the office will be staffed by former business executives and is designed to infuse fresh thinking into Washington, float above the daily political grind and create a lasting legacy for a president still searching for signature achievements.

I thought he was busy skiing making peace in the Middle East?

Silicon Valley

Just finished season one last night. I know, I know. I’m late to the party. I think I stayed away from it because so many people tried to get me to like Big Bang Theory which I find unwatchable. (I really can’t stand sitcom formats any longer, especially with a laugh track) But Silicon Valley, like a lot of non-broadcast television shows nowadays, is extremely smart and doesn’t jam jokes into the audience every two beats.
