Jared Kushner donated his first political contribution at age 11. Huh, where have I heard this one before? It sounds familiar. #ToolBags

Thank you for sharing this; I learned so much that is important. The Kushner family came here with virtually nothing and got rich- THE SHAME. Wealthy families take advantage of legal ways to transfer wealth- THE SHAME. A 59 year old died of a stroke after working for DonalD Trump. My father was involved in a business relationship with Dick Kneip- dad then died at age 52- all Kneip’s fault. Trump had the audacity to have a famous pastor officiate at his wedding- THE SHAME. If Kushner uses a newspaper as a tool for an agenda it is wrong. If Jeff Bezos does it it is just fine. I also learned that it must have been Donald Trump must have been the first person who gave money to politicians; or at least the first person who was wrong to do so- THE SHAME. I will have to go back to the Commonwealth website to see who their next liberal writer is. I am also sure we will see no invitee who wrote anything bad about the Clintons, Kennedys, FDR and now even the Bushs

MJ, I will agree with you on one thing, they are all crooks. But does that make it right? Making money is a good thing, it benefits the economy, it benefits employees, everyone is happy. But making money thru cheating the system is not. What I took from the interview is that rules were broken. And if you think that is fine so be it. But I don’t think it is. I was fortunate to have grandparents on both sides of my family who built wealth thru honesty, integrity and hard work, and they would never bend the rules to make more money. It wasn’t in their nature. One of my grandparents was once called a fool because he wouldn’t take these shortcuts. He told me about once. You could tell as a person who probably owned over a dozen businesses that while he wasn’t wealthy, he was happy that he played by the rules. I’m glad my last name is NOT Trump.

Tell me more about Kneip. Does this have to do with the once dog track in North Sioux City?

Oh, and even the Bushes don’t care for Trump either.

There were no parts of the program that imparted or mentioned any shaming of those families. The entire thing was simply a presentation of historical fact. Any emotional reaction you feel to it is YOURS. Did you sense shame or anger? That was YOUR reaction to those facts.

AFA the Bushes attitude about Trump: it WAS Jeb’s turn. Or maybe Mitt, again.
