Thanksgiving could be pretty tense at whatever Trump golf resort the first family chooses to celebrate the upcoming holiday.
That's because the president reportedly is pretty mad at his son-in-law over his role in decisions that led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller, according to a new report in Vanity Fair.

Sources close to the White House say they don't believe Kushner is a target of the investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 USA election and whether Donald Trump's campaign team colluded with Moscow.

"Jared is the worst political adviser in the White House in modern history", he said. The former advisor added, " I would say [Kushner] should go back to real estate in NY.
The White House did not respond to Vanity Fair's request for comment.
The White House senior adviser Jared Kushner has turned over documents to the special counsel Robert Mueller as investigators have expressed interest his role in the firing of James Comey as Federal Bureau of Investigation director, CNN reported Thursday.
