Kushner has succeeded at exactly three things in his life. He was born to the right parents, married well and learned how to influence his father-in-law. Most of his other endeavors — his biggest real estate deal, his foray into newspaper ownership, his attempt to broker a peace deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians — have been failures.

I dunno, I think we should give Smitty a chance.  Seriously, even if he was smart and capable and ready for this type of responsibility, Trump fans have to at least understand it's creating too many competing centers of control over the Covid-19 response efforts.  I can crack wise all day about Pence, but he does at least publicly appear to be listening to the experts on his task force.  So really those scientists are one leadership center, then there's the CDC in Atlanta, then there's Pence himself as reporting head of the groups, then there's the President.  Then there's 50 Governors (led by Cuomo) which makes sense given so many health districts and national guards are deployed at the state level (told you, federalism still matters).  And there's the Surgeon General (who at this point is content to just be a TV commercial figure and that's fine actually).  Soon, you'll have someone (likely the Navy) from the Armed Forces becoming another public face of this response as military assets and existing hospitals (many of which are here in Texas) are used for treatment.  

Now, I am comforted by the idea of lots of smart, battle tested folks tackling this thing from multiple angles.  My worry, what should be the nation's worry (like we don't have enough on our fucking plate right now), is that too many of those folks have the President's ear.  He doesn't do well with multiple channels of information coming at him with competing information.  He gets analysis paralysis and tends to just cling to what is comfortable and already long-established.  Kushner is just gonna add fuel to that fire.  Literally our best hope in this new shitshow is to hope that somebody on the task force or NIH is smart enough and tricky enough to let Kushner eavesdrop or find a document left in the cabinet room or something like that where he learns of a good idea and takes credit for it.  We actually have to engage in high school politics for him not to fuck this up.

Not a defense of Kushner, but his only accomplishment as czar of everything was pushing the FIrst Step Act through.  No mean feat, but probably mostly accomplished because he had Trump's ear and wielded his political vengeance.

during this global pandemic that is starting to decimate the U.S., Trump found time to nominate a 38 year old former Kavanaugh clerk to the prestigious D.C. Circuit.  Judge Justin R. Walker has been a district court judge for 6 months in the Western District of Kentucky.  he was recommended by Mitch McConnell.  

the ABA deemed Walker not qualified because of his lack of courtroom experience.  now, he's going to the second most important court in the country.

i expect to see more judicial appointments as the end nears for Trump.

Is there a way to remove these judges or is this set in stone forever?

Impeachment.  I'll let you research how many times judges have been impeached:  hint = not often.

yes, this. it makes me feel crazy sometimes. i have never felt this, not during the seedy depths of the Lewinsky scandal (i was still a young republican then) or the gross incompetence of Katrina or the misdirected callousness of the Iraq war...i have never felt such utter and complete disgust and hate and SHAME with regard to the leadership of my country. 

it is really a horrible feeling 😒

He was also a speechwriter for Rumsfeld and a member of the Federalist Society...he keeps great company.

Fuck DoucheBank.   Dumbasses deserve to lose every penny for giving money to this POS.  Any diligence would show he’s a con artist through and through, yet they gave him money...while expecting some favors, I’m sure.

Well yeah, it is Wisconsin.  He feels the general election slipping away so he's trying to appeal to his base there.  His base is pretty much locked up in the midwest, reason his win in Wisconsin was shocking was how well he carried the rare voters there.  These people aren't gonna give a shit about a state judicial race though.  That's why he brought up the second amendment sanctuary law up there.  Even moreso than Texas, Wisconsin gun owners tend to run a wider gamut of political spectrum spots.  The whole state is made out of woods, even the urban areas.  It's a curious gambit, but say you want about captain dipshit, the guy knows how to play Wisconsin...and this is all one big troll starting now to fuck with Biden in Milwaukee which now, because of Covid-19, will take place just a matter of a few weeks before hunting season up there.

It's hard to feel empathy or sympathy when there's none in return.

He also, well his campaign, sent a cease and desist to Jeff Sessions to quit mentioning him.

If they can prove he lied during the confirmation process, he should be impeached. Right after Kavano-means-yes.

It's both sad and hilarious that these incompetent fools have just now gotten around to making this a priority. 

They can't even figure out how and when to look after POTUS, why should anyone believe they can figure out how to look after 320 million Americans.
