Jared Kushner Draining the Swamp

Joe Scudder
Written by Joe Scudder

The media doesn’t say much about Kushner draining the swamp because that would be a positive for the Trump Administration.

When I followed the Drudge Report link, for a moment I though CNN was actually admitting that Jared Kuhsner draining “the swamp” was a good thing. But then I saw that the writer is a Republican and that CNN disavows anything she says. Apparrently, Kayleigh McEnany used to work for CNN and gets her editorials published by them. It makes the appear more “balanced” than they are.

Kayleigh McEnany writes, “Jared Kushner is quietly tackling Washington’s swamp.

President Donald Trump set out to drain the Washington swamp, and perhaps no one has aided him more effectively than senior adviser Jared Kushner.

As Kushner continues to make government accountable to the people, the Washington swamp — including the media and DC bureaucracy — has retaliated with a Kushner takedown effort, hiding or downplaying his accomplishments while engaging in character assassination.

Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Seema Verma, who was announcing a plan to improve Americans’ access to their medical records — a vexing, longstanding problem that has left millions of people in the dark about their health. “America needs better patient access to data and interoperability now,” Kushner stated resolutely. The White House Office of American Innovation, which Kushner leads, will direct the MyHealthEData initiative.

The next day, Kushner changed gears, traveling to Mexico City for a high-stakes meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto covering a panoply of issues — immigration, trade, and security among them. The meeting comes as the Trump administration seeks to make good on its campaign promises of building a border wall, renegotiating NAFTA, and leveling tariffs to remedy our trade imbalance. Alongside National Security Council and State Department efforts, Kushner’s meeting was part of a push to transform those promises into action.

But you would be hard-pressed to find much positive media coverage of these or Kushner’s other achievements. A barrage of contrived smear stories about Kushner’s interactions with CEOs or security clearance dominate — attacks clearly fueled by those who resent Kushner’s plans to change Washington.
