Kushner, who is married to Trump’s eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, has been chosen by the president to oversee the “overhaul” of the government bureaucracy.
“The White House just announced that Trump’s son-in-law and leader of the preppy camp across the lake, Jared Kushner, will oversee a broad effort to overhaul the federal government,” Colbert said on the Late Show Monday night.
“And the government desperately needs overhaul,” Colbert said. “I mean, somebody keeps putting totally unqualified people in charge of really important stuff. That’s gotta stop!”
Kushner will oversee the Office of American Innovation, which Colbert joked was “vague, but still better than the original title, the Bureau of Obvious Nepotism.”
The host reported that Kushner’s team will attempt to “fix government with business ideas. And you know he’s got great business ideas, like being born into a wealthy real estate family … or marrying into a wealthy real estate family. Why hasn’t the government tried that?”
In a statement, Kushner said he believes the government, “will be run like a great American company.”
“And if they can’t do that, run it like a Trump company,” Colbert joked.

“Our hope is that we can achieve successes and efficiencies for our customers, who are the citizens,” Kushner explained, according to news reports.
“Hold it a second,” Colbert said. “We’re not customers, we’re citizens. Which means we own the store. You work for us, buddy.”
