  • Ban­non v Kush­ner power strugg­le makes Fri­days inte­res­ting at W.H. – “A well-placed D.C. source says it’s no coin­ci­dence that Pre­si­dent Trump’s anti-Muslim “tra­vel ban” bro­ke last Fri­day after seni­or pre­si­den­ti­al advi­ser Jared Kush­ner, an obser­vant Jew, had che­cked out for the day. The situa­ti­on is descri­bed by our spy as “a power strugg­le bet­ween two seni­or advi­sers” Kush­ner and for­mer Breit­bart chief, Ste­ve Ban­non.

Obser­vant Jews are pro­hi­bi­ted from working bet­ween sun­set Fri­day and sun­set Satur­day.”

That makes it dif­fi­cult to face increa­singly urgent ques­ti­ons, she said, over “what role we should play, who Ger­ma­ny is, how domi­nant do we want to be.”
