Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Offering a stunningly blunt appraisal of the North Korean leader, Jared Kushner said on Tuesday that Kim Jong-un was a "totally unqualified person" who attained his position of power only through nepotism.

"Here you have a guy who has no government experience, and he's in charge of the whole thing," Kushner said, in an interview with Fox News. "It's the craziest thing I've ever heard of."

Kushner noted that, instead of working his way up and acquiring the skills necessary to do his job, the North Korean leader had been given huge responsibilities and power "only because of family connections."

"There's only one word for that," he said. "Nepotism."

Kushner called the notion of such an unqualified person conducting foreign policy "beyond belief."

"I mean, why would you let someone with no experience in foreign affairs anywhere near such important decisions?" Kushner added. "Why would anyone take someone like that seriously?"

Jared made a complete fool of himself so now he is a Trump. Daddy Trump is exactly what he accuses Kim Jung Un of being and then Jared himself is the next generation of know nothings, accomplish nothings, ignorant fools who believe they are royalty. In my lifetime, I have never seen an administration as incompetent or as entitled, these people honestly think they are royalty. I think from now on I will refer to them with the appropriate royal titles, so this post is addressed to Prince Jared.

Donald's family has also been noted to say, this year, and with utmost seriousness, that Donald Trump started with nothing.

But, since he isn't a blood relative of King Donald can he actually be a Prince or isn't he more likely to be a Duke. I don't know, all that royal -------- is too hard to keep track of. Glad I'm not British but apparently the Trumps want us to be subjects as are the Brits. Don't know how they tolerate that idea.

My irony meter just committed suicide.

At some point in time, weren't we all "unqualified nepotists"?

You've always been very qualified to be a nepotist.

No. Neither did I marry a female family member to get in good with any of them.

No.
But I did spend a night at a Holiday Inn Express.
With a female lion tamer from Kazakhstan.

LOL! Andy Borowitz has been doing some great satire on the Trump family this past year.
