Everyone is sick and tired of Jared Kushner, and that includes The Daily Show’s host, Trevor Noah.
This week, Donald Trump’s son-in-law made a surprise trip to Iraq where he received an “update on the status of the counter-ISIS campaign,” according to a statement from the White House.
Kushner has also been tasked with planning Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Mar-a-Lago later this week as well as bringing peace to the Middle East.
“Like Trump said, ‘Plan me a party for me and the Chinese president and also create peace in the Middle East,’” Noah joked, imagining Kushner’s response: “What? That’s insane! I don’t even know what your favorite color balloons are, man!”
“So, defeating ISIS, bringing peace to the Middle East, that’s a lot of responsibility. But maybe, just maybe, Jared Kushner has a shot. If he focuses on nothing else.”
With that, he revealed the other minor task Trump has given to Kushner: leading the newly-created White House Office of American Innovation, which includes reforming the criminal justice system, veteran care, dealing with the opioid epidemic and essentially changing how the entire federal government is run.
“That’s all. Wow, Trump is giving Jared Kushner so much to do. And here you were bitching about your father-in-law asking you to set up the wifi.”
