Trump Reportedly So Furious He's Attacking Jared Kushner

In what would heretofore have been seen as unthinkable, President Trump, furious at the maelstrom surrounding him, has turned on those closest to him, according to a report in The New York Times, with even his son-in-law Jared Kushner, whom Trump seemed to rely on more than anyone, being the target of Trump’s incendiary rage.

The Times reported that the combination of Trump’s revealing intelligence to Russia that had been supplied by Israel and the revelation that Trump had apparently asked former FBI Director James Comey to stop the investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn left Trump raging:

His own mood, according to two advisers who spoke on the condition of anonymity, has become sour and dark, and he has turned against most of his aides — even his son-in-law, Jared Kushner — describing them in a fury as “incompetent,” according to one of those advisers.

Trump’s temper has been the subject of discussion for years; he reportedly called a sound technician wiring him for The Apprentice a “f**king monkey,” there were reports he was furious at campaign aides after his first debate with Hillary Clinton; in early March he lost his temper and accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping him; and recently it was reported he would yell at television clips about the investigation into Russia’s possible collusion with his campaign.

Still, for him to target Kushner, the husband of his beloved daughter Ivanka, is surprising, since Trump’s desire for loyalty has been eminently clear for some time.

The question that could be asked is this: For Trump, is loyalty is a one-way street?
