Son-in-law Kushner poised to wield clout in Trump presidency

So, not a fan of the “royal family” approach to the presidency… But Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law, who is Jewish, has made at least one good point: “In my opinion, accusations like ‘racist’ and ‘anti-Semite’ are being thrown around with a carelessness that risks rendering these words meaningless… I know the difference between actual, dangerous intolerance versus these labels that get tossed around in an effort to score political points.”

Will we survive the Repubs?

Liberals are panicking, badly. But Winer does highlight something we should push back against, if it happens: Deficit Spending.
