President Trump has an emotionally unhealthy relationship with his daughter, in that she plays the role of the wife in his brain. This is pretty standard when a man gets a divorce – the oldest female child often takes on the role of the wife. This is also of course true when the sexes are reversed (actually, the reverse is much more common, as it is the situation of virtually every oldest son with a divorced mother; the Trump type of situation is often impossible as the wife keeps the children from the father).
Because of this, and presumably for other reasons, Trump has been manipulated into taking the advice of Ivanka’s husband, the dumb Jew Jared Kushner. Kushner literally has a plan to win the black vote, which led to Trump letting a bunch of black crack dealers out of prison in a “criminal justice reform” scandal (not very disco, not very law and orderish). Obviously, it is impossible for a Republican to win the black vote, but such a plan would normally just be silly and funny. However, in the middle of the black revolution, it is insane and dangerous.
According to Tucker Carlson and others, the reason Trump has not been going hard on the black revolution is that Jared is telling him he won’t win the black vote if he does.

Again, too dumb to try to process without having a seizure, but what this is actually doing is losing Trump the white vote. Whites want Trump to defend them from these blacks, and he has not been doing that.
Now, we’re hearing a rumor that Trump is fed up with Jared, and regrets this insane course of action. It would make sense that Trump would be feeling that, especially given that Tucker spelled it out to him (he watches Tucker every night, or he used to).
President Trump has told people in recent days that he regrets following some of son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner’s political advice — including supporting criminal justice reform — and will stick closer to his own instincts, three people with direct knowledge of the president’s thinking tell Axios.
Behind the scenes: One person who spoke with the president interpreted his thinking this way: “No more of Jared’s woke s***.” Another said Trump has indicated that following Kushner’s advice has harmed him politically.
Politically and metaphysically.
Why it matters: This could be the final straw for federal police reform legislation this year, and it could usher in even more incendiary campaign tactics between now and November.
Details: The sources said the president has resolved to stick to his instincts and jettison any policies that go against them, including ambitious police reform.
Trump dipped his toe into police reform under pressure after a Minneapolis police officer killed George Floyd — with an executive order that activists considered toothless — but he will likely go no further to restrain law enforcement officers, according to senior administration officials.
Trump has made clear he wants to support law enforcement unequivocally, and he won’t do anything that could be seen as undercutting police.
Several conservative allies of the president have reached out to him and advised him to reduce Kushner’s influence over his re-election campaign.
Yes, but: No adviser to the president has more power over the White House and the campaign than Kushner. And nobody we’ve spoken to suggested that fundamental dynamic will change. It’s always possible that the views Trump expressed recently could just be a passing phase.
In response to this reporting, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement, “President Trump is very proud of the historic work that he’s done to benefit all communities. The First Step Act made historic strides toward rectifying racial disparities in sentencing while his executive order to secure America’s streets works with our nation’s heroic police officers to ensure we have safe policing and safe communities.”
That is a statement that could have come from Nancy Pelosi.
Nancy supported this “justice reform,” which would actually be better titled “The Injustice Gang Unleashed.”
Since when are crack dealers just? Or reformers?
Another senior White House official pushed back against Axios’ reporting, saying: “Numerous anonymous sources have attempted to provide separation between Jared and the president. They have failed for the last three and a half years. They are not going to be successful today either.”
Between the lines: Trump never really wanted criminal justice reform, according to people who have discussed the subject with him privately. He’s told them he only supported it because Kushner asked him to. Though he has repeatedly trumpeted it as a politically useful policy at times.
It’s not politically useful. Not one single person voted for Donald Trump because they wanted him to release an army of crack dealers onto the streets. Not one.
Trump now says privately it was misguided to pursue this policy, undercutting his instincts, and that he probably won’t win any more African American support because of it.
“He truly believes there is a silent majority out there that’s going to come out in droves in November,” said a source who’s talked to the president in recent days.
Just call ’em WHITE PEOPLE.
The president also pays close attention to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. A few weeks ago, in a brutal monologue, Carlson blamed Kushner for giving Trump bad advice.
It hasn’t escaped Trump’s attention that Carlson has recently been the highest-rated host on cable news. Trump, generally skeptical about polls, views television ratings as a kind of substitute poll, according to a person who’s discussed the subject with him.
Tucker also regularly gets nearly as many views on YouTube as he gets on TV, with monologue clips in the millions, which no other cable news host is able to do. This means that he’s watched by nearly double the amount of people as the number two cable news host.
What’s next: In the past 24 hours, Trump has issued a series of tweets that leave no ambiguity about where he is heading in this campaign.
He’s tweeted enthusiastically about arresting people who are looting or damaging statues, and he’s promised to veto must-pass defense spending legislation if it removes Confederate generals’ names from military bases.
Yes, he’s been very good in the last few hours.
NYC is cutting Police $’s by ONE BILLION DOLLARS, and yet the @NYCMayor is going to paint a big, expensive, yellow Black Lives Matter sign on Fifth Avenue, denigrating this luxury Avenue. This will further antagonize New York’s Finest, who LOVE New York & vividly remember the….

I truly hope Trump is turning over a new leaf.
If he embraces the culture war as I’ve instructed, he will get some of the liberal whites to secretly vote for him. He needs to say: “this mob is going to come to your house and kill you if the Democrats take over, and the police won’t be there for you.”
It’s very simple. Everyone kind of understands that black people want to kill us, and no amount of liberal gibberish can cover up the fact that we naturally feel that right in our limbic system.
The Democrats have incited a race war. There is no way to pretend that isn’t happening. So you have to fight the battle that they brought.
Trump must become the Ultimate Race Warrior.
