Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

The Trump offspring are often mocked, but few comics have skinned any of them the way Stephen Colbert did to Eric Trump. He seems to have annoyed Colbert badly by declaring on Fox News that “95 percent” of Americans support his father.

Colbert’s physical impression of the younger Trump is truly startling, even appalling. He doesn’t have anything too kind to say about Eric’s intellectual capacity, either. It concludes a brutal and highly dramatic monologue that first dwells on the president’s racist attack on “the Squad,” and the imbecility of one Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) — a Notre Dame graduate who thinks Irish people are “Anglo-Saxon.”

Just click for laughs.

Sooner or later, the Lincoln Project had to train its scope on Jared Kushner, Trump's empowered son-in-law who has botched every important assignment in the White House. With signature remorseless style, this ad explains how has failed all of them: "This pampered princeling has never met a problem that he couldn't f*ck up."

Sadly for 150,000 dead Americans and counting, one of those Kushner assignments was a strategy to contain the coronavirus pandemic. Typically, he has declared victory and accomplished nothing.

We warmly congratulate Jared on his new title: "Secretary of Failure."
