Jared Kushner, the Donald Trump, Jr. our Future Mr. President wishes he had, has officially been named as a senior White House advisor, once Trump ascends the Gilded Throne next week. Next. Fucking. Week.

Though there's been some concern about Kushner's business-related conflicts of interest (as is the case with so much of Team Trump) Kushner plans to sell his assets to his brother, Karlie Kloss BF Joshua Kushner, and to a trust his mother will oversee, according to the Times. He'll no longer have stakes in the Observer, his brother's law firm, or his family's real estate firm flagship property, and he will have to recuse himself from anything having to do with wife Ivanka Trump's business.

In exchange, Kushner will join Reince Preibus, Kellyanne Conway, and Steve "Prince of Darkness" Bannon in gaining full access to The Room Where It Happens—"It" referring to no-holds-barred tweeting, of course, along with some wall-building, immigrant-deporting and alleged dealmaking.

This makes perfect sense, of course. By all accounts, real estate scion Kushner is Trump, but he has better hair and gets to sleep with Ivanka. NY Mag ran a long profile on Kushner outlining his similarities to his father-in-law and, more importantly, his deep commitment to Trump's fiery right-wing, nationalist agenda, which is surprising considering Kushner's a lifelong Democrat. But apparently, his views began to shift on the campaign trail. NY Mag recounted one private meeting Kushner had with the Partnership for New York City after the election, in which he described his Trumpaissance:

He told the audience about his own process of figuring out Trump’s appeal, saying that he had once lived in a “bubble” on the Upper East Side. He thought about immigration in terms of Silicon Valley’s needs, about education the way Robin Hood Foundation philanthropists did, about climate change in terms of carbon emissions, not mining jobs. Then, about a year ago, Kushner said, he had started traveling the country with Trump, going to rallies where thousands of ordinary Americans shouted in fury about government regulations and the Common Core curriculum. (And torturing terrorists and locking up his opponent, though Kushner didn’t mention those lines.) The gilded scales fell from his eyes.

In Kushner's defense, he *appears* to have done what a lot of Democrats failed to do—he talked to the voters who complained they were being ignored, and tried to see the world through their eyes instead of his. But he also helped run a campaign fueled by bigotry and divisiveness, he's a big fan of former Breitbart co-founder Bannon; and he suggested David Friedman, a pro-settlement right-winger who has likened liberal Jews to "kapos" who aided Nazis in concentration camps, for his new role as ambassador to Israel. Mayor de Blasio might think Kushner is a "very reasonable person", as he told reporters yesterday, but, as with Ivanka, don't you dare take your eyes off him for a second. There's a snake in our midst.

Then, of course, there's the pesky little matter of nepotism. When John F. Kennedy let his little brother Bobby be attorney general in 1960, Lyndon Johnson got pretty mad, and in 1967 he signed into law a nepotism statute that would prevent public officials from appointing a "relative" "to a civilian position in the agency in which he is serving or over which he exercises jurisdiction or control." Technically this prevents presidents from appointing family members to their Cabinets and not to White House advisor gigs, so Kushner, who won't be accepting a salary, might be able to duck under the curtain here, though there's some speculation about that.

Still, more likely than not, we can all look forward to four-to eight seasons of Keeping Up With The Kushner-Trumps on Trump TV once regular cable's wiped out in the future.
