#FireKushner Sweeps Twitter Amid Reports Ivanka’s Husband is Trying to Sideline Steve Bannon (UPDATE)

Mr. Ivanka Trump eyes Steve Bannon during Syria briefing.

Report after report is coming out about the rising profile of Jared Kushner within the Trump administration. Those items happen to coincide with tales about the diminishing influence of Steve Bannon, the former Chairman of Breitbart News who is one of the only people inside the White House who is actually committed to an America First policy agenda. In fact, New York Magazine is reporting that Bannon advised against the recent missile strike on the Assad regime in Syria…only to lose out to Kushner’s globalist cabal.

Two sources close to Bannon told me the former Breitbart executive chairman argued against the strike — not because of its questionable constitutionality, but on the grounds that it doesn’t advance Trump’s America First doctrine. “Steve doesn’t think we belong there,” one Bannon ally told me. Bannon’s position lost out to those inside the White House, including Jared Kushner, who argued Trump needed to punish the Assad regime…

On a board in his West Wing office, Bannon keeps a list of promises Trump made to populist voters. Kushner, whose portfolio has ballooned in recent weeks, seems much less interested in keeping those promises.

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see that Mr. Ivanka Trump doesn’t give a shit about the promises President Trump made to the American people on the campaign trail. He’s far more concerned with impressing the media elite and his financier friends back in New York City. Just look at the people defending this clown and you can understand just what is happening. The common man is losing out to monied interests and Kushner is the main one responsible for that turn of events.

A rabid progressive feminist and a bloodthirsty neocon are openly celebrating the potential demise of the America First Doctrine. Pro-Trump Twitter is trying to help make sure that touchdown dance ends up being premature. As a response to this possible betrayal orchestrated by Kushner and his allies, a hashtag is rapidly sweeping the service.

#FireKushner

As of publication time, #FireKushner is trending at #4 in the United States and poised to go even higher (UPDATE: Now at #1!). Will he actually get the ax? Probably not. But this is also about sending a message for future battles inside this administration. We won’t go along with the Team Trump line when they sell out the people who put them in power. Bannon knows this. Kushner will have to learn…and we will teach him!

 

UPDATE: Twitchy also picked up on the #FireKushner tag, which was taken off like a rocket ship…

 

UPDATE II: I’m sure this is a coincidence, but an hour or so after #FireKushner started to trend #1 on US Twitter (where it still remains at 10:22 p.m. Eastern time), this item appeared on Politico

Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner, two warring senior White House aides, had a bury-the-hatchet meeting officiated by President Donald Trump, after arriving at Mar-a-Lago this week.

The sit-down, which was confirmed by two White House officials, was an attempt to smooth over tensions between the two men, which have dominated headlines for days. Whether the meeting was successful in creating a détente – and how long it lasts – is an open question, especially in a White House that has been dominated by infighting.

Bannon and Kushner had for months been allies. In recent weeks, though, there has been substantial discord between them. The fight, people in the administration say, centers on policy differences. Bannon, White House chief strategist, is a flame-throwing populist who formerly ran Breitbart News. He has criticized Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, for his more politically moderate approach. Kushner is suspicious of Bannon’s fiery style and has been concerned about how he’s influencing the president.

Suspicion between Bannon’s team and Kushner’s has intensified in recent days, with both sides accusing the other of planting negative stories in the media…

Word of the meeting comes as several news organizations reported Bannon, and possibly other senior White House aides including Chief of Staff Reince Priebus could be soon be forced out in a broader shakeup.

    Too many goys in Trumps administration. Fire Bannon and help make Israel great again!

  • Iso

    I disagree with Rikko. Keep Bannon and fire Kushner. Kushner is there on behalf of the Liberal Elite and will run roughshod over Trump’s America First Plan.

    • Rikko

      No you don’t disagree with me… rather it seems that your sarcasm radar is malfunctioning.

      • Iso

        I don’t do sarcasm at 2:30am my time in the UK.

        • Rikko

          Fair enough, now go get some sleep 😉

    Call of Duty Modern Warfare (or Modern Hoaxfare) is such a low brow game, but they got the best predictive programming: Remember that mission where a Dictator set up a nuclear bomb in his own country, and the fact that we fight against Russian ultranationalists? This is our reality now (kind of)

  • Mark Samenfink

    I dunno if I’m all about FIRE KUSHNER but I’d really like his responsibilities to be regulated to things like maybe helping Ben Carson with urban development or helping the department of the interior than him having the ear of POTUS and the speaker on things like Healthcare and Foreign Policy. I think the guy is likely not a bad person but he is most certainly the wrong person to advise the president on those topics.

    • Silence Dogood

      Well, Kushner is an Orthodox Jew, so speaking critically of him would be Antisemitism I’m sure. -_-

  • Hawk Hopper

    No wonder for weeks the media kept calling Bannon a Nazi… you know, since he was against bombing people.

    This also shows why the media was virtually silent by Kushner.

  • Strac5

    Trump is very weak where his daughter is concerned. Kushner is going to push for a dilemma that Trump has to solve by firing one of them. If Trump fires Bannon, his Presidency is done. If he fires Kushner, he will in some ways be broken, because his daughter will probably give him hell.

  • ExiledV2

    I still think the rumors of firing -both- Bannon and Priebus are on the money. He’ll never stop backing Jared; you just don’t go against family.

  • ADOLF HITLER

    Jews.

    • Quise

      I like alt-right retards like you, who have the balls to be an outright Nazi. At least you don’t try to pretend something different, and i appreciate that. Keep on not fronting about being a full blown racist and an anti American cunt.

      • WeNeedPeaceNow

        What could possibly go wrong with this zionist plan to take over Syria and partition it off to Israel?? You know, give them that oil rich Golan Heights which they are now claiming as their own and selling it off. There is no Hitler to blame anymore, in fact, one can literally look at the actions of jews today and vindicate Hitler completely, in fact, Hitler was WAY TOO KIND to jews to only put them in labor camps, even normal people are wishing that Hitler actually did kill 6 million of these parasites so they would never breed anything that would eventually infest the American government. Can’t blame Hitler or Nazis for sparking WW3 in the Middle East now can you Schlomo? Can’t blame Hitler for your endless wars because jews are incapable of doing an honest day’s work and have to lie, cheat, steal, and literally genocide entire nations to steal their land and resources. Thank goodness I am not a jew, that’s got to be the worst feeling in the world knowing that your ancestors are nothing but nation wrecking vermin that have been kicked out of literally every country they have come in contact with. #111 will be America after the jews kick start WW3 in the Middle East with everyone under the sun. Good luck jews, your real holocaust is just around the corner.

  • Silence Dogood

    It’s really telling when a hard Left rage like Slate is celebrating “globalist cucks” “saving them all”… globalism is bad, nationalism is good, period. Being a cuck is also a BAD thing, in ANY context.

    • Quise

      If globalism is always “bad” then you might want to to request that your Daddy gets rid of is millions of dollars of investments and properties across the planet.

      • Silence Dogood

        That’s not globalism you nit. That’s him, as a private citizen, making business deals outside the country – globalism refers to POLICIES made at the national level that prioritize the needs of other countries over ones own national interests. If you’d like to converse with the big kids you might want to learn first.

  • BanPC

    Damn right Kushner needs to go. His dumbazz wife needs to go as well.

  • JohnnaCal

    Well its pretty clear CIA tradecraft is working to divide and conquer within the White House.

    The goal is to have the alt right turn on Trump and then begin impeachment.

    The alt right is falling for it hard.

  • axisfiver axisfiver

    teh emprah is keeping his promise, he painted them into a corner, “do you want regime change or do you want to eradicate terror?” let the pincer movement begin! crush all normies!

  • WeNeedPeaceNow

    Jared wants war with Syria so that Israel can claim the Golan Heights oil rich land. They might even send 150,000 goyim to die in this messy war. What cold possibly go wrong there? Thank goodness the jews in Israel are safe though and will sit this one out again like all the other wars they instigated.

    • USMC Mustang
