Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump made at least $82 million in outside income last year while serving in the White House, filings show

Yet barely a peep. The thing I will never understand is how the grift is happening in plain daylight, yet nobody does anything to stop it:

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, the president’s daughter and son-in-law, brought in at least $82 million in outside income while serving as senior White House advisers during 2017, according to financial disclosure forms released Monday.

Trump earned $3.9 million from her stake in the Trump International Hotel in Washington and more than $2 million in severance from the Trump Organization, while Kushner reported over $5 million in income from Quail Ridge, a Kushner Cos. apartment complex acquired last year in Plainsboro, N.J.

The filings show how the couple are collecting immense sums from other enterprises while serving in the White House, an extraordinary income flow that ethics experts have warned could create potential conflicts of interests.

Both Kushner and Trump have given up daily oversight of their companies as they work as unpaid senior advisers to the president.

Canada parliament condemns U.S. attack on Trudeau, country simmers

We may have lost a friend with Canada but at least we gained one with the gentle Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea.

OTTAWA (Reuters) – Canada’s House of Commons on Monday unanimously condemned the personal attacks on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau by U.S. President Donald Trump and his surrogates as the famously polite nation simmered over the weekend broadsides by its U.S. ally.

Lawmakers gave unanimous consent for a motion backing Canadian steel and aluminum, hit by U.S. tariffs, as well as the supply management system that supports key agriculture sectors, and gave a standing ovation for the government’s response to the Trump administration’s verbal attacks on Trudeau.

The Cruelty of the Trump Administration

I spend a lot of time on this blog talking about the ineptitude of this administration. But they are as cruel as they are stupid:

And those three stories are just from last night alone. The fuck is wrong with these people?

Trump considers benching Giuliani from doing TV interviews

They are reporting that Trump is upset that Giuliani is going off message but you won’t ever convince me that Trump is more upset that Giuliani is getting his name in the headlines over Trump.

NEW YORK (AP) — President Donald Trump is growing increasingly irritated with lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s frequently off-message media blitz, which has included muddying the waters on hush money paid to porn actress Stormy Daniels and making claims that could complicate the president’s standing in the special counsel’s Russia probe.

Trump has begun questioning whether Giuliani, an old friend and former New York City mayor, should be sidelined from television interviews, according to two people familiar with the president’s thinking but not authorized to speak publicly about private discussions.

Trump also expressed annoyance that Giuliani’s theatrics have breathed new life into the Daniels story. It’s a concern shared by Trump allies who think Giuliani is only generating more legal and political trouble for the White House.
