Half in Fun, All in Earnest

President Donald Trump on Tuesday appeared to joke about the rising profile of his son-in-law and senior White House adviser Jared Kushner.

“I appreciate everyone,” Trump said, thanking Republican leaders during a meeting with House and Senate leadership. “Jared. Jared’s actually become much more famous than me. I’m a little bit upset about that.”

Those present laughed at his remarks, though it was not clear whether Trump laughed along.

That's pretty much what he said about Comey shortly before he fired him.
Kushner made the cover of TIME Magazine last week, an achievement Trump has boasted about when it applies to himself and reportedly fumed about when it is bestowed upon others — such as chief White House strategist Steve Bannon, who has since been sidelined from a number of major decisions, including Comey’s firing.
Jared might want to prepare to take the fall for the Russia-collusion charge.

...but hey, do what you want...you will anyway.
