An Observation Of Jared Kushner

Comments (0)

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump have ZERO experience or expertise in government affairs. Just 2 entitled rich kids.

My impression of Jared Kushner, gleaned from reading of him over the years — and especially in the past six months — is that he's a husk as a businessman, utterly hollow, but utterly convinced he is supremely gifted.

It terrifies me that he has been cast as the voice of reason in the Trump Administration, not to mention his feckless, Stepford Daughter wife, Ivanka.

But my impression seems correct, at least if this former Kushner staffer — the illustrious Elizabeth Spiers — is to be believed. 

Via WaPo:

On my first day of work as the editor in chief of the New York Observer, which had been acquired five years earlier by Jared Kushner, now the son-in-law and senior adviser to President Trump, I inherited an office and a desktop computer, both in fine but used condition. The computer was a recent-model Mac, but when I turned it on, it was inexplicably running Windows. I summoned our beleaguered IT guy to explain, and he informed me that it had belonged to Kushner, who liked the design of Apple products but preferred the Windows OS.

“So he was basically using a $2,500 desktop as a monitor?” I said. The IT guy shrugged.

That's a fairly gossipy example, but also:

Kushner’s claim to business knowledge, beyond admiring Silicon Valley, boils down to his work for his family’s commercial real estate company, which is hardly comparable to a government institution. And if industry dynamics are not transitive across the board, expertise isn’t, either.

On that count, I’m not even sure how to quantify Kushner’s expertise, anyway. Yes, he ran the company — which he inherited, not uncommon in New York’s dynastic, insular real estate world. But he was sure he had the goods. When I worked for him, I wasn’t sure he had a realistic view of his own capabilities since, like his father-in-law, he seemed to view his wealth and its concomitant accoutrements as rewards for his personal success in business, and not something he would have had in any case. To me, he appeared to view his position and net worth as the products of an essentially meritocratic process.

This is not going to end well. Let's all hope, and let's all make sure, it does end. Soon.

E!'s THE ARRANGEMENT Is A Phantom Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes Biopic

Comments (0)

Josh Henderson and Christine EvangelistaIt's just a workshop ... it'll be fun! (Images via E!)

E!'s The Arrangement, which airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT, stars gorgeous Josh Henderson as an A-list actor in the thrall of a self-help cult called The Institute for the Higher Mind, whose marriage to a young actress (Christine Evangelista) is being micromanaged by the group's charismatic leader (Michael Vartan).

Josh Henderson 4I've loved Josh since his Scene 23 days!

It's hard not to catch that it's vibing on the Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes/Scientology stories, which included rumors that Cruise's people had auditioned several actresses to become his wife before settling on Holmes. Holmes did not renew her contr — I mean, she later divorced him.

Screen Shot 2017-03-30 at 11.42.00 AMI think we could come to an arrangement!

The Arrangement is bringing in boffo ratings — 2.2M total viewers when it premiered March 5 — but I can't help wondering whether E! just low-key went to war with Scientology. Good on them!

Going Bare With Nick Youngquest

I've been a fan of Nick Youngquest's ever since he was on the cover of DNA several years ago. I may or may not own more than one calendar featuring his ruggedly handsome face.

So when I was invited to an event featuring Nick (now the the global face of Invictus by Paco Rabanne) and Dr. Emily Spilchal demonstrating the NABOSO Barefoot Training Mat, I knew I had to go.

I had no time! I had to walk 20 blocks over and 20 back, then get to my own workout... but I made it, and was able to meet Nick, grab some shots for you and for me, and check out the mats.

More info on the mats from a press release:

People seemed excited about the mats, and Nick was super nice. He had the class of Screen Shot 2017-03-29 at 11.41.59 PM mostly women (with one very notable exception) paying close attention to his moves. One thing learned: The only problem with working out barefoot is people can see when the instructor is making your toes curl.

Check out the mat if you're interested in shucking your shoes for a whole new way of working out.
