Beck Blasts Trump's 'Professional Nepotism' After Kushner Heads to Iraq
— Yahoo News (@YahooNews) April 4, 2017
Glenn Beck is concerned about how much responsibility President Trump is giving his son-in-law Jared Kushner.
Kushner, who's married to Ivanka Trump and serves as a senior adviser to the president, has seen his role in the White House rapidly expand.
In addition to working on health care, tax reform and foreign policy, Kushner was recently tapped as the head of the newly-created White House Office of American Innovation
He also joined the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph F. Dunford, on a trip to Iraq.

“This is professional nepotism,” Beck told Yahoo News' Bianna Golodryga during an interview Monday.
Beck likened it to when former President Bill Clinton put Hillary Clinton in charge of his administration’s task force on health care shortly after his inauguration in 1993.
"I remember thinking, 'I don't know anything about the First Lady. ... This seems like nepotism. That wasn’t what we voted for,'" Beck said.
He said that, however, "looks like kindergarten" compared to the Trump White House.
Beck noted that first daughter Ivanka Trump, who also plays a major role in her father's administration, is not known for her strong conservative views.
"What are her constitutional underpinnings?" he asked. "Where is she coming from? Where is Jared coming from?"
Beck said they're clearly successful and know how to run a business, but he disputed the notion that "maybe it’s time we run the country as a business."
"No, it's time we run the country as a legitimate country. It's not a business. It's a constitutional republic."
