Jared is so fucking dumb:
The White House has been working for several months to prepare for President Trump to commute the disgraced ex-governor’s [Blagojevich’s] sentence, of which he has already served seven years. The move was spurred on by Trump son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, who reportedly thought it would throw a bone to Democrats. Despite LaHood, Bost and CNN’s other sources’ claims, an administration official told CNN that Blagojevich’s case had been “vetted significantly.”
Every single thing about a Blago sentence commutation is stupid. Democrats won’t appreciate it; his corruption was so comically obvious that Trump’s commutation will have everyone wondering what Blago gave Trump to get him to do it, and it will piss off Republicans. So, of course, Jared thinks it’s a good deal.
