WATCH: John Oliver Skewers Ivanka Trump And Jared Kushner

 Much ink has been spilled on Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner’s experience, their effect on the president, even their personalities — but none of us actually know all that much about them.

Well, that’s John Oliver’s take on President Trump’s two key advisers at least. The comedian spent most of his HBO show “Last Week Tonight” on Sunday skewering the pair of Jewish West Wing insiders.

Ivanka, Oliver argues, may not be exerting as much influence on her father as liberals like to believe. In fact, we might not even know the truth about her views at all.
