Jared Kushner's security clearance
has been downgraded.

Apparently Mexico
and the United Arab Emirates

have all discussed

how they could take advantage
of his complex business arrangments
lack of experience
and money woes.

Top White House officials
say Kushner was "naive and being tricked"

intimating that he has an inner kindness
and idealism
and must be protected from bullies

when really he is smug and ignorant
and a bully himself

and should never have had any authority 
in the first place.

But whatever works.

Maybe we should do
the heretofore unthinkable
and take pity
on his father-in-law.
