    In his daily Farcehouse Press briefing today Press Secretary Sean Spicer did not announce that Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser did not go to Iraq on Monday and that they did not announce the meeting in advance of his non-arrival there. “it would have been a breach of security and stuff it we’d have said he wasn’t going until he got their coz the Pentagon would have got a bit antsy if he went before he arrived” said Spicer.

    During his daily briefing with reporters Monday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer found himself insisting that Kushner had not, in fact, also added Iraq to his purview. “I don’t think to, sort of, then translate it into he’s overseeing Iraq is an accurate assessment,” Spicer bumbled. Spicer said Kushner’s role is in part one of delegation. When asked to expand on this “He has a team that he oversees,” Spicer said. “There is a team, depending on the subject, that is working with him. And he is providing oversight and direction.” Spicer also confirmed that Trump was now handing over all his executive duties to Kushner saying "President Trump will have no responsibilities at all so that when everything gets so totally ballsed-up he can blame everyone else"

    Spicer also announced that during the non-visit to Iraq, Kushner had also developed the cure for cancer and cooled the planet by 3.1 degrees.
