our boy in iraq was less than forthcoming on his security clearance forms:

Quote:
When Jared Kushner, President Trumpís son-in-law and senior adviser, sought the top-secret security clearance that would give him access to some of the nationís most closely guarded secrets, he was required to disclose all encounters with foreign government officials over the last seven years.

But Mr. Kushner did not mention dozens of contacts with foreign leaders or officials in recent months. They include a December meeting with the Russian ambassador, Sergey I. Kislyak, and one with the head of a Russian state-owned bank, Vnesheconombank, arranged at Mr. Kislyakís behest.

great article on our boy, jared....

Quote:
On Thursday, Time magazine published its list of the 100 most influential people on earth. One of them is President Trumpís son-in-law and top adviser Jared Kushner ó an obvious choice on Timeís part given that Kushner has been assigned responsibility for handling everything from the opioid crisis to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Time got Henry Kissinger, President Nixonís ethically dubious foreign policy consigliere, to write a short blurb about Kushner ó and his praise was comically faint. Hereís the whole write-up ó Iíve omitted nothing:

Transitioning the presidency between parties is one of the most complex undertakings in American politics. The change triggers an upheaval in the intangible mechanisms by which Washington runs: an incoming President is likely to be less familiar with formal structures, and the greater that gap, the heavier the responsibility of those advisers who are asked to fill it.

This space has been traversed for nearly four months by Jared Kushner, whom I first met about 18 months ago, when he introduced himself after a foreign policy lecture I had given. We have sporadically [at]exchanged views since. As part of the Trump family, Jared is familiar with the intangibles of the President. As a graduate of Harvard and NYU, he has a broad education; as a businessman, a knowledge of administration. All this should help him make a success of his daunting role flying close to the sun.
Five things to note about this:

1. The entire thing is the most lukewarm of lukewarm praise, about as generic and uninspired as it comes. One academic I follow on Twitter called it ďthe letter of recommendation you never want an advisor to send,Ē which sounds about right.

2. It may have been legitimately hard for Kissinger to say much more about someone who has no formal qualifications in foreign policy or experience in government and is now occupying arguably the most important policy role in the White House. Kissinger canít be more specific because Kushner doesnít really have any specific accomplishments in government to point to, other than marrying astutely.

3. In private life, contra Kissinger, Kushner doesnít have a lot of successes. His tenure as head of the New York Observer was disastrous, his family real estate companyís flagship skyscraper has low occupancy rates and a serious debt problem, and itís been credibly reported that his dad bought his place at Harvard with a $2.5 million donation.

4. Itís doubly biting because Kissinger is famous in Washington for his ability to flatter people in power in order to gain influence over public policy. If this is the best that Americaís foremost master of diplomatic compliments can do ó well, thatís pretty embarrassing for Kushner.

5. That last bit, about ďflying close to the sun,Ē is particularly delicious. Itís a reference to the Greek fable of Icarus ó son of the famous inventor Daedalus, who built a pair of wings held together with wax. Icarus used his fatherís invention to fly too close to the sun, which melted the wax and caused poor Icarus to plummet to his death. Itís a morality tale about hubris, the arrogant belief in your own ability to accomplish more than you can. Kissingerís phrasing heavily implies that, in this case, Kushner is Icarus.

JARED KUSHNER CALLS KIM JONG-UN “TOTALLY UNQUALIFIED PERSON” WHO GOT JOB ONLY THROUGH NEPOTISM

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Offering a stunningly blunt appraisal of the North Korean leader, Jared Kushner said on Tuesday that Kim Jong-un was a “totally unqualified person” who attained his position of power only through nepotism.

“Here you have a guy who has no government experience, and he’s in charge of the whole thing,” Kushner said, in an interview with Fox News. “It’s the craziest thing I’ve ever heard of.”

Kushner noted that, instead of working his way up and acquiring the skills necessary to do his job, the North Korean leader had been given huge responsibilities and power “only because of family connections.”

“There’s only one word for that,” he said. “Nepotism.”

Kushner called the notion of such an unqualified person conducting foreign policy “beyond belief.”

“I mean, why would you let someone with no experience in foreign affairs anywhere near such important decisions?” Kushner added. “Why would anyone take someone like that seriously?”

Kushner said that the people of North Korea must look at the powerful position attained by the “totally inexperienced and unqualified” Kim and shake their heads. “They’ve got to be asking themselves, ‘Who elected him?’ ” he said.

Fake is something presented as real but is untruthful or inaccurate in an attempt to deceive.

Satire is a form of humor that exaggerates or ridicules.

I think you have the two confused.
