The Trudie Styler puff piece that doesn’t quite add up
Guardian (UK) - 1 day
A fawning interview with first-time movie director, yogi and wife of Sting contains an egregious mathematical error The absolute last thing this newspaper would ever want to do is level a cry of “fake news!” at a newspaper owned, until about 10 minutes ago, by Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner. Even so, my eye is drawn to an interview in the New York Observer with recurring Lost in Showbiz character Trudie Styler, who has directed her first feature film, and spoke to the paper ahead of its debut at the Berlinale last week. Right from the get-go, it’s clear the interview isn’t going to shirk from the tough calls. The intro reads: “British actress Trudie Styler has accomplished so much – movie producer, Oxford grad (maths!), philanthropist, vintner, renovator, mum of four, wife to Sting, yogi – that it’s almost shocking that, at 63, only now is she making her feature directorial debut at the 67th Berlinale with Freak Show. What took her so long? Well, she’s been a little busy li ...

'Have You No Ethics?': Anne Frank Center Chief Slams CNN's Trump Surrogate
Huffington Post - 2 days
A CNN segment turned tense Tuesday night when the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect’s executive director verbally sparred with Kayleigh McEnany, the network’s in-house surrogate for President Donald Trump. Earlier in the day, the center’s Steven Goldstein had blasted Trump’s statement against anti-Semitism as “too little, too late” and said the anti-Jewish sentiment from the administration is “the worst we have ever seen.” “So you think the president does not like Jews and is prejudiced against Jews?” McEnany asked. “You bet,” Goldstein replied.  “Wow!” McEnany said. “Does he hate his daughter?” The president’s eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, converted to Judaism before marrying Jared Kushner, who is a senior White House adviser. “Wow is right,” he replied. Then he added this smackdown: “You know what, Kayleigh? I am tired of commentators like you from the right trotting out his daughter, trotting out his son-in-law, as talking point against ...

The Pressure Is On For Trump Administration To Denounce Anti-Semitism
Huffington Post - 4 days
Anti-Semitic hate crimes comprise the largest portion of religiously motivated attacks in the United States. In New York City alone, such attacks have more than doubled already in 2017. But President Donald Trump has yet to address the issue. In press conferences last week, the president had two opportunities to address concerns over rising anti-Semitism. And in both instances, he downplayed or altogether denied the issue. During a joint press conference with Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday, Israeli journalist Moav Vardi asked what the U.S. president would say to those in the Jewish community who “believe and feel that your administration is playing with xenophobia and maybe racist tones.” Trump responded not by addressing anti-Semitism and xenophobia, but rather by bragging about his election victory. “Well, I just want to say that we are, you know, very honored by the victory that we had: 306 Electoral College votes,” Trump said. ...

Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump Wreaks World Havoc With A Skeletal Steve Bannon On 'SNL'
Huffington Post - 19 days
The moment we’ve been waiting for has arrived: “SNL” finally showed us what life is like inside President Donald Trump’s Oval Office. On the show’s cold open this week, Baldwin reprised his role as Trump for the first time since the former “Apprentice” host officially took over as the United States commander-in-chief.  After an aide (played by Kyle Mooney) tells the president that his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner have gone away for the night since they “don’t work on Shabbat,” the president realizes he’s free to sow chaos. “When the Jews are away, the goys will play. Send in Steve Bannon,” he says. After Baldwin’s Trump explains to his chief strategist that he is “tired and cranky and I feel like I could just freak out on somebody,” the skeletal, Grim Reaper-esque version of Bannon weighs in with some advice: “Then maybe you should call Australia.” In a spoof of Trump’s now famously hostile phone call with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm ...

    More Details Hide Details He was responding to his own paper's editorial by Dana Schwartz criticizing Kushner's involvements with the Trump campaign. In the letter, Kushner noted, "In my opinion, accusations like “racist” and “anti-Semite” are being thrown around with a carelessness that risks rendering these words meaningless."
    He later became more broadly involved in the campaign and was for a time seen as the de facto campaign manager, succeeding Corey Lewandowski, who was fired in part on Kushner's recommendation in June 2016, and succeeded by Paul Manafort.

Kushner said: “In New York, you have to act quickly, or else you get left in the dust. We were just blown away by it, and we really wanted to buy it.” However, by 2008 the cash flow generated by the property was insufficient to cover its debt service, and the Kushners were forced to sell its retail space.

At Harvard, Kushner was a member of the Fly Club and bought and sold buildings in Somerville, Massachusetts as a hobby.
    From 2007 to 2016, he spent at least $7 billion on New York real estate.
