John Oliver Explains Why Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner Aren't Going to Save the White House 24.4.2017 Mother Jones
On the latest Last Week Tonight, John Oliver challenged the popular belief that President Donald Trump's closest advisers, his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner, are moderating forces in the White House.

Oliver then questioned what qualifications Kushner may or may not have to merit his increasingly stacked White House duties, which range from reforming veteran care to brokering ...
