When a majority of Americans look at Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner in the White House, they ask themselves, What are these two unqualified, spoiled souls doing in the White House?
Then, there is the conservative Vice President Mike Pence, who does possess political experience.
When the above three people get mashed together, nothing good can come of it. Michael Wolff’s new bombshell book, Fire and Fury, detailed Ivanka’s and Jared’s thoughts on VP Mike Pence.
The book states two possible reasons for why Pence can work with Trump: one being that he “solved the riddle” and the other possibility of him being “well short of intelligent.”
Former deputy White House Chief of Staff Kate Walsh firmly stated, “Pence is not dumb.” However, Jared and Ivanka don’t agree with Walsh.
Wolff wrote of Pence, “Many called him an ’empty suit.’ The Jarvanka side credited Pence’s wife, Karen, as the guiding hand behind his convenient meekness.”
He added, “Indeed, he took to this role so well that, later, his extreme submissiveness struck some as suspicious. Pence cast himself as blandly uninteresting, sometimes barely seeming to exist in the shadow of Donald Trump.”
“In a sense, he had solved the riddle of how to serve as the junior partner to a president who could not tolerate any kind of comparisons: extreme self-effacement,” Wolff explained.
Wolff concluded, “Although many saw him as a vice president who might well assume the presidency someday, he was also perceived as the weakest vice president in decades and, in organizational terms, an empty suit who was useless in the daily effort to help restrain the president and stabilize the West Wing.”
