Ivanka Trump's Husband's New Skyscraper Design Has Everyone Making Dirty Jokes

A proposed skyscraper that could be added to New York City's skyline has a certain link to the Donald Trump administration.

The Manhattan tower is the brainchild of Charles Kushner, who is the father of Jared Kushner — Ivanka Trump's husband and an adviser to the president.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Jared's involvement in the project has created controversy due to a potential conflict of interest.

Meanwhile, Kushner Companies has released a rendering of what the redesigned skyscraper could look like.

Here it is:

Nope, nothing to see here. Nothing except, er…

Yes, the internet has been ripping Jared Kushner to shreds over the skyscraper, which is very, uh, phallic in design.


That means people are making the same joke over and over.


Teehee.

Others saw it a slightly different way.

Meanwhile, others pointed out it bears an eerie resemble to the eye of Sauron in “Lord Of The Rings.”

It's not helping matters that the address of the site is 666 Fifth Avenue. Spooky.

Now THAT would make it the best-named building in the world.

Disappointingly, the Kushners are planning to rename the tower 660 Fifth Avenue.

For his part, Jared has sold his stake in the building in a bid to prevent a possible conflict of interest in the future.

The 1,400 foot skyscraper would include retail stores, a hotel and some very pricey condos.

Kushner Companies believes it could be worth a whopping $12 billion once it is fully developed.

It was designed by Zaha Hadid, a Pulitzer Prize-winning architect who died last year, and could be finished by 2025.

So in a decade's time, there could be a giant building that looks like a penis in the middle of NYC.

What a time to be alive.
