Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, the son-in-law and daughter of the President of the United States respectively, said that going to work in the White House was a big sacrifice. Right? They're giving up millions upon millions of dollars in profits. They were sacrificing their own companies to go work for Donald Trump as unpaid advisors. They were not going to take a dime of taxpayer money, which, hey that's great. You don't need the money. Right?

Well, as it turns out, in the first year and a half of Donald Trump being President of the United States, these two combined, Jared and Ivanka, pulled in $82 million according to financial disclosure reports. $82 million for being unpaid advisors through your businesses that you are still both very much involved in. Now here's the thing. Back when Jimmy Carter was elected president, the man owned a peanut farm, peanut farm that made a little bit of money. Republicans made him sell it so that he couldn't somehow use the office of the presidency to profit off his peanut farm.

Jared and Ivanka are both very much involved in their current businesses while also serving within the White House. Ivanka Trump has won, at least, what? 13 new trademarks from China that she is now profiting from. Jared Kushner got massive financial deals from several different people after meeting with them in the White House. They're using their positions of power within the Trump administration and Trump family to enrich themselves. Yes, this is illegal. But no, nobody's going to do a damn thing about it. Why? Because nobody ever does a thing about anything illegal that has happened during this administration. And I'm not talking about the collusion, all that crap.

I'm talking about the average, everyday crimes that this administration seems to be committing. Scott Pruitt has broken the law at least four separate times in the last month, at least that's when they were revealed. Four times, illegal activity, one month, nothing, nothing. Jared and Ivanka, very clear legal violations here, nothing. Donald Trump, emoluments clause, nothing. There is a lawsuit on that. God only knows where it's going to go. But seriously, folks, every single week we are hearing a new story about somebody in this administration using their office to enrich themselves, or bolster their connections, or abuse the power of their office, and nothing.
