The decline and fall of Jared and Don Jr.: Nepotism often ends badly.

From USA Today

The perils of nepotism have been captured in President Trump’sresponses to his son and son-in-law eagerly attending a meeting that they believed was a Russian government lawyer bringing dirt on Hillary Clinton directly from the Russian government. Former national security adviser Michael Flynn and short-lived campaign manager Paul Manafort were shown the door over far less scandal — yet Trump declared of his relatives that "I think many people would have held that meeting.”

He called Donald Trump Jr. a high quality person” who did nothing wrong, or even unwise. He added in his Paris press conference, "Politics is not the nicest business in the world, but it's very standard."
