Jaren Kushner, son-in-law and top adviser to President Donald Trump, faces criticism on Monday about comments made during an appearance on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.”

“One thing we’ve seen in a lot of the Black community, which is mostly Democrat, is that President Trump’s policies are the policies that can help people break out of the problems that they’re complaining about,” Kushner said during his appearance. “But he can’t want them to be successful more than they want to be successful.”

The White House aide’s controversial comments came in response to a question about a meeting with rapper Ice Cube on Trump’s Platinum Plan for Black America.

The plan aims to win over the Black vote, something Trump has struggled with this election cycle. In a recent New York Times-Siena poll, 90 percent of Black respondents said they had already or intended to vote for Biden, compared to just 4 percent for Trump. Republicans historically have a harder time garnering votes within the Black community.

The comments are telling of how the administration really feels about Black Americans. An administration that has repeatedly been called racist, which they’ve denied.

Trump has touted record-low unemployment rates, prison reform, record HBCU funding, and higher wages amongst Black Americans during this election cycle to appeal to Black voters.

These comments come just eight days before the presidential election when his father in law is grasping for last-minute votes. Nationwide polls consistently show Trump is trailing Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

The backlash was so swift, press secretary Kayleigh McEnany issued a statement to the Hill denouncing “internet trolls” serving up criticism.

“It’s disgusting to see internet trolls taking Senior Advisor Jared Kushner out of context as they try to distract from President Trump’s undeniable record of accomplishment for the Black community,” McEnany’s statement said.

Sorry fellas. After a long dry spell, rapper Megan Thee Stallion has finally found someone to quench her thirst.

According to the gossip blogs, Megan is dating Flint, Michigan rapper BFB Da Packman. He reportedly chased her for months until she finally gave in and agreed to a date.

Packman is best known for his independent singles “Free Joe Exotic”, “Honey Pack” and “Honey Pack Remix.”
 

He also gained internet fame for posting photos of himself working at his day job, wearing his U.S. postal worker uniform.

While Packman does have a day job, his money is far from short. He reportedly owns his own private jet and a fleet of luxury cars.
 

Women everywhere admire the fact that 26-year-old Packman is a hard working brotha who also raps on the side.

Over the weekend, Lizzo shared a video of herself chatting with Packman via Skype. She seemed interested enough to agree to go out on a date with him.

Megan and Packman have one thing in common — their love for food.

Burger King is under fire for tweeting a blatant sexiest comment on International Women’s Day that read: “Women belong in the kitchen.”

Shortly after posting their tweet, they followed up with a series of other tweets clarifying that “If they want to, of course, about 20% of chefs are women” and announcing a scholarship to “assist female Burger King workers in pursuing their culinary dreams.”

On Twitter, many users are taking what intended to be a market ploy personally and are taking issue with the fact that women are, once again, the butt of the joke.
