Earlier this year, Trevor Noah speculated that Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon might be the real person running the country, but as of this week, Bannon has been knocked down a peg. On Tuesday’s Daily Show, Trevor Noah announced that the real president is actually Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.
Kushner is now Senior White House Advisor and his first duty for the Trump administration is to solve the ISIS problem. No big deal. “But Kushner, he wouldn’t reach the number one spot in our real president standings if that were his only responsibility,” said Trevor. Kushner is also planning Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Mar-a-Lago and working on creating peace in the Middle East.
“Like Trump said, ‘Plan me a party for me and the Chinese president and also create peace in the Middle East,’” Noah joked, imagining Kushner’s response: “What? That’s insane! I don’t even know what your favorite color balloons are, man!”
Watch the clip to see what else Kushner has on his ever increasing plate.
