President Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who also serves as a special envoy for the Middle East, went on a surprise trip to Iraq this week. News of the trip broke Monday while Kushner was midair, which is rare as such trips are kept quiet until the officials arrive to ensure maximum security.

On Monday night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Jimmy Kimmel joked that he found the trip "strange, because Jared Kushner is a real estate developer, he's 36 years old, he has no experience dealing with foreign governments."

"His job, is to figure out how much it will cost to put a Dunkin' Donuts on the first floor of an office building. Dennis Rodman has more foreign policy experience than Jared Kushner, for real," quipped Kimmel.

"So you have to wonder why the president would send him to a military operation in Iraq," Kimmel continued.  "I was thinking about it on the drive to work and there's only one possible explanation: I think the president might be trying to kill him. You know, a lot of fathers don't get along with their sons-in-law. If you're president, you can throw a black bag over his head and ship him off to Iraq. Think about it, it makes sense."
