Maybe he thinks it will be an extradition that Mexico will pay for.

I would pay good money to see Kushner dragged off to a Mexican prison for trying to bribe someone.  I mean, at this point, that wouldn't really be that surprising I guess.

This is Trump playing 7-dimensional chess, see? When Kushner's out, he builds the wall really fast, the fastest you've ever seen, and then when he tries to come back, they just lock the gate and everybody hides and pretends like nobody's home.

Kush gets to spend the rest of his days in Tijuana, eating barbecued iguana, and Trump can finally marry Ivanka, like he's always wanted to.

Stable. Genius.

Send Dog and his posse after him. The only way for this to end is reality TV coming full circle with a special team-up between Cops & Dog.

What a farkin' joke, sending Jared to Mexico?! You know what this is really all about...

Jared: "Yeah, if you invest a few hundred million in 666 5th Avenue, I'll tell my father-in-law to back off on his threats."

Just like he did with Qatar and when they told him no thanks, he convinced Daddy-in-law to support an embargo by Saudi Arabia. And now Qatar learned it's lesson and is now investing in the 666 project for fear of incurring Trump's wrath.

But seriously, who the fark ever thought that investing in a property addressed "666" was reasonable in the first place? Even NON-RELIGIOUS people would immediately know that this would be a marketing issue and ran for the hills.

Trump's remarks on trade have unsettled financial markets, often causing the Mexico's peso currency to shed value.

Well that could have been written better.

That is something that always perplexed me too.  How hard is it to get addresses changed?  My gut says that he thought he could get it for a song and then convince the city that the address change was needed--except the city didn't play ball, making "step 3" impossible.  Now the only people who would actually lease space in the building are money launderers and others who will never actually step foot in it.

It will be farking poetic justice if that building is what ends up bringing the family down.

It's the "5th Avenue" part; it''s viewed as more appealing.  Hell, there's an Espresso place 1/3 of the way down 52nd toward 6th and they still use the 5th Ave address (same building, technically).

They could use a 52nd or 53rd Street address, if they have entrances on those sides, but they wanted to stick with 5th Avenue (it's ritzier sounding).

Clinging to that, 666 is pretty much all they have: 665 and 667 are in use across the street, and it's already sandwiched between 664 and 668,, so....

I mean, what?  665 1/2?  That sounds podunk.  664a? That sounds subsidiary, lesser.

So they were stuck with 666.

So it's a vanity decision?  LOL.  Hope they go down hard.

It's like a spaghetti western, where the bandits are trying to get to Mexico after a heist.
Instead of a bank, he's robbed the nation.

DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY!

This is like the call i had to take with my early days at Apple.  A Canadian was in the Apple store in Mexico and called in to complain that they only had one worker who could speak English...

Jared does not speak Spanish not have any diplomatic cultural clue of Latin america.  Except for his life resembles a low rent relatively that grandma's watch during weekdays.

Ivanka: *reading telegram* "Jared Kushner, Washington DC. You are very great. 1,000,000,000 pesos. Come to Santa Poco make deal, stop. The in-famous El Guapo."

Jared:  What does that mean, "in-famous"?

Ivanka: Oh, Jared! In-famous is when you're MORE than famous. This man El Guapo, he's not just famous, he's IN-famous.

Jared: 1,000,000,000 pesos to do a deal with this El Guapo, who's probably the biggest real estate mogul to come out of Mexico!

Ivanka: Wow, in-famous? IN-famous?

To be fair I was on the shiatter grunting a popcorn and nacho cementer mixer out.  I mean to say his life resembles a telenovela.

I'm not so sure about that... a quick googling found 660, 662, 664, and 668 all look like subdivisions of the same building. Then there's the architectual phalysis (https://www.designboom.com/architect​ur​e/zaha-hadid-architects-new-york-skysc​raper-660-fifth-avenue-jared-kushner-p​roperties-03-22-2017/) - it is numbered 660 and described as replacing the building numbered 666, so they're definitely down the road of renumbering the building.

What is the propose of this trip? Honestly, considering how Trump has gone out of his way to insult Mexico, it's people, it's culture, and pretty much everything about it, what is Jared supposed to accomplish other than being snubbed in person?

I guess they want to offer him to sacrifice in the altar of the Templo Mayor?.

Considering how slimy and idiotic he is, and considering that the writing on the wall is in glowing, flashing, underlined comic sans, it really wouldn't surprise me if he found a convenient excuse to "get lost" somewhere.

Not saying it's likely, just that it wouldn't surprise me.

Don't worry, here's actually there to work a secret deal with the Cartels.  Study it out, libtards!
 
2018-03-07 10:07:02 AM  
Perhaps Jared will try to make a secret deal with the cartels and end up being held for ransom. I would find that humorous.

This is like that dinner Trump had with Romney where he offered Romney a big nothing or the one he had with Chris Christie where he also offered nothing and made him eat meat loaf. Nieto has not played ball with Trump on the wall, NAFTA, and other stuff. Thus he gets an insult. An official visit from the S-I-L known around the world as a dumbass. Nieto will be obligated to be nice to someone without the skills to be the lowest paid lettuce picker in the world. This move is intended to give the finger to Mexico like Vicente Fox gave to Trump.
The Mexicans should give Jared a state dinner with every bite having a Scoville score of five thousand.

twice that, and call it a favor so he'll never have to taste the prison food.


Also, hot sauce thread!

I honestly don't believe any Trumps will ever be charged. They are experts at setting up other people to take the fall for them. This toothless investigation will accomplish nothing.

Jared met with the president of Mexico and his staff today and did not include the US Ambassador to Mexico in the meeting. The ambassador had served the US government for 31 years.

"Nah, we don't need you at the meeting, it's all good. We're just going to be talking about financing 666 Fift---THE WALL! I mean the wall!"

What a shiatshow.
