Jared Kushner's Time 100 Write-Up From Hell

President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner made it onto Time magazine's list of the 100 most influential people in 2017. His write-up from former United States Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, however, was less than enthusiastic.

The ambiguous two paragraphs were immediately skewered by readers and on social media, for whom it rang conspicuously hollow. Many called it a "non-endorsement," while some Twitter users compared it to a professor writing a recommendation letter for a student they didn't care for. Another user called it "just two pointless, empty paragraphs."

At least one spoof of the letter emerged, written by Twitter user Jason O. Gilbert.

"There is no question that Jared Kushner is a human man, who owns at least three suits and has probably never stolen a car," Gilbert wrote. "I think I saw him give an interview once, and he did not projective-vomit once."

Ivanka Trump, Kushner's wife and daughter of the president, also made it on the Time 100 list, albeit with far more personal praise from Wendi Murdoch, producer and ex-wife of media tycoon Rupert Murdoch.

"I am deeply impressed by her courage to leave behind life as she knew it and move her young family to Washington to pursue positive change," she wrote.

The move comes as part of Trump's effort to reverse a slew of environmental protections ushered in by former President Barack Obama that he said were hobbling economic growth - an agenda that is cheering industry but enraging conservationists. Trump signed the order at the Interior Department in Washington, saying that his predecessors' use of the 1906 Antiquities Act to create monuments marked an "egregious abuse of...
