Stephen Colbert rips Donald Trump for putting his son-in-law in an unaccountable White House position he described as "The Bureau of Obvious Nepotism."

The Late Show’s Stephen Colbert mocked Donald Trump for his recently announced decision to hand his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, a position in the White House leading the jargon-laden “White House Office of American Innovation,” describing it as the “Bureau of Obvious Nepotism.”

Colbert noted, “Washington is a mess right now but that’s going to end soon because the White House just announced Trump’s son-in-law and the leader of the preppy camp across the lake Jared Kushner will ‘oversee a broad effort to overhaul the federal government.'”

He added, “And the government desperately needs overhaul. I mean somebody keeps putting totally unqualified people in charge of really important stuff. That’s gotta stop.”

COLBERT: Washington is a mess right now but that’s going to end soon because the White House just announced Trump’s son-in-law and the leader of the preppy camp across the lake Jared Kushner will “oversee a broad effort to overhaul the federal government.” And the government desperately needs overhaul. I mean somebody keeps putting totally unqualified people in charge of really important stuff. That’s gotta stop.

Kushner will become the head of something called the “Office of American Innovation.” Vague. But still better than the original title: The Bureau of Obvious Nepotism.

Kushner’s job will be to lead a team to “fix government with business ideas.” And you know he’s got great business ideas, like being born into a wealthy real estate family, or … marrying into a wealthy real estate family. Why hasn’t the government tried that?

The new office “will be staffed by former business executives” and is being described as a “SWAT team of strategic consultants.”

“Alpha-niner there is a budget redundancy in the Bureau of Weights and Measures, kick in the door and shoot anything that moves.”

But, Kushner has a bold vision for the office, saying, “the government should be run like a great American company.” And if they can’t do that, run it like a Trump company.

Trump’s administration has been rife with conflicts of interest, nepotism, and a legally questionable commingling of Trump family private interests and his publicly financed office. The continued placement of his children (and their spouses) in positions of authority with little oversight from the public is a violation Trump has wholly embraced.
