Baltimore County's Slumlord

As the back and forth discussion over conditions on the southern border and in Baltimore has waned, the light is now shining on Jared Kushner.

Last week's tit-for-tat exchanges between President Trump and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) over health conditions in migrant centers and in Baltimore raise another issue.

Trump has a point in suggesting that, as chair of the House Oversight Committee, Cummings "should investigate himself" with respect to "stolen or wasted" money intended for Cummings' own district in west Baltimore. Great. Hey Trump, apply this same logic to the Pentagon -- to all of its "stolen or wasted" money. Of course, don't hold your breath.

But in all this unsavory talk of "feces," "rats" and "rodents," an embarrassing situation comes to light for the President's son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

Jared Kushner is the owner of "thousands of rental units in Baltimore County." Tenants in these units report that they are "infested with mice and maggots." Kushner's company also uses "aggressive tactics to collect debts from tenants who move out."

So Kushner is a slumlord. On this, Trump says nothing.

The legacy media also generally stay quiet, giving Kushner a free ride -- perhaps in deference to his belief system.
