Beck Slams Trump

Published

on

President Donald Trump has no shortage of critics. They are on the right and the left but none are as surprising as former FOX News host Glenn Beck. The problem for the conservative commentator seems to be the president’s decision to send Jared Kushner, his son in law, to Iraq this week. Kushner is visiting the are before even Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Kushner has been tasked with a long list of policy initiatives, an unprecedented decision.

Beck told Yahoo News and Finance Anchor Brianna Golodryha, “This is professional nepotism.”

The list of policy initiatives given to Kushner only seems to be growing. He is now expected to take care of things such as Middle East peace, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, the opioid epidemic, the China policy, tax reform and a new Office of Innovation at the White House.

Beck was a huge critic of the Bill Clinton administration and blasted then President Clinton’s decision to give oversight of health care reform to his wife, Hillary Clinton.

Beck said, “I remember thinking, ‘I don’t know anything about the first lady. This seems like nepotism. That wasn’t what we voted for. That looks like kindergarten.”

Beck questions the experience of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump

Kushner’s large role in the West Wing is not Beck’s only issue with Trump. He also sees problems with the jobs that have been given to Trump’s daughter, Ivanka. She has recently taken an official job at the White House and now has an office in the West Wing. Beck has serious questions about the motives and the experience of both individuals.

“It does bother me, especially as a conservative. Trump’s daughter is not a conservative. What are her constitutional underpinnings? Where is she coming from? Where is Jared coming from?” he said. “This is not a business, it’s a constitutional republic.”

There was some predictable pushback from the White House. Press Secretary Sean Spicer said, “He has a team that he oversees. There are lot of areas that he’s been working very diligently on behalf of the government, on behalf of the president’s agenda.”

When Real-Life Plays A Part In TV Plotlines

Not every show has its plot lined out from the moment the pilot airs, and still, sometimes real-life can get in the way. Even the best laid plans can go awry, and sometimes plotlines are created entirely to accommodate an actor’s unexpected personal issue. From pregnancies to off-set injuries (and of course plenty of on-set injuries), writers are reworking scripts so that you’d never know something else was happening behind the scenes. Think you know why an actor exited a show? We’ll bet you didn’t even realize that some major show plots happened out of serendipity. Read on to find out how in some cases, the truth really is stranger than fiction.
