1) He's a grifter, from a family of grifters, married into a family of grifters.
2) He's as ethically and morally challenged as his father and father-in-law.
3) He knows exactly what to say and how to kiss up to his father-in-law.
4) He's willing to look the other way when his wife and father-in-law go off for their usual Extra Special Very Private Daddy-Daughter Time.

Objection!

The jury is instructed to read that alleged charge several times and then reminded to not consider it in every sickening explicit detail burned forever into their brain.

Allegedly.

Jared Kushner is here to assuage the fears of an anxious nation
:snippity:
Mr. Kushner’s background is in real estate and privileged overconfidence. That has equipped him with the skills necessary to pilot a myriad of important files: new trade deals, criminal justice reform, peace in the Middle East and, now, COVID-19 response. And Mr. Kushner – a man who knows these files as intricately as a cursory Google search will allow– is again ready to serve.
Many of the comments miss the sarcasm.

Ivanka Is Getting Dragged for Breaking D.C. Stay at Home Order to Go to Trump Golf Club for Passover
Evan Brechtel
Apr. 16, 2020

Nearly 30,000 Americans are dead due to the virus that's caused a global pandemic and upended daily life in the United States.

Governors across the country—on the recommendations of health experts—Americans to stay inside at all times with the exception for necessary errands, and to maintain a distance of six feet apart from others when in public.

The President's eldest daughter and advisor Ivanka Trump echoed these orders in a video posted online at the end of last month.

Acknowledging the importance of complying with these stay-at-home orders, Americans forewent their typical holiday celebrations, such as Passover and Easter. Jewish Americans across the country adapted their Passover Seders to be virtually spent with family thanks to apps like Zoom.

According to a recent New York Times report, that wasn't good enough for Ivanka.

She and her husband Jared Kushner traveled with their three children across state lines from D.C. to New Jersey, where they spent the first night of Passover at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster.

Rules only apply to the little people. Having said that, if/when the tumbrils start rolling, metaphorically or literally, I suspect Jarvanka will be among the first riders (if they haven't successfully escaped to Israel).


bring out the tumbrils. I am so fucking filled with pain and anger at what is going on in this country. I do deeply believe that if trump somehow retains power it will be the end of democracy in this country and the end of this country as we know it.

And, of course, they put other people at risk, SS, pilots, flight attendants, not to mention what it cost.

That still puts the driver, who has to put gas in the tank, at risk of infection along with Secret Service personnel.

I saw photos of them boarding a plane, but the photo could have been of a different time.

But as Slim says, it still put other people at risk.

There were many many many such replies. Such incivility. I prefer to be more direct -- FUCK OFF AND DIE.

Jared Kushner's pandemic effort exposed as 'laughable'
It's long past time to acknowledge the fact that it's a mistake to keep giving Jared Kushner so many important things to do.


https://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-sho ... d_ms_tw_ma
It was nearly two months ago when Politico first reported that Jared Kushner was taking on a key role in guiding Donald Trump on combating the pandemic. CNN's White House correspondent added the same day that Kushner is "becoming more involved" in the administration's coronavirus response, with one source telling the network that the president's young son-in-law is "in total control."

It wasn't long before Kushner was reportedly leading a "shadow task force" of his own, which had the effect of "causing confusion among many officials involved in the response."

As it turns out, that was far from the only problem. The Washington Post reported yesterday:

The coronavirus response being spearheaded by President Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has relied in part on volunteers from consulting and private equity firms with little expertise in the tasks they were assigned, exacerbating chronic problems in obtaining supplies for hospitals and other needs, according to numerous government officials and a volunteer involved in the effort.
But wait, there's more!

Kushner’s Screwed Up His COVID Jobs—Now He’s Got an Even Bigger One

https://www.thedailybeast.com/kushner-b ... es&via=rss
Already under fire for his role atop a shadow task force aiding the administration’s response to the coronavirus, senior White House aide Jared Kushner is now being handed another critical job: helping get a vaccine for the disease developed in record time.

President Donald Trump, who has said he believes a COVID-19 vaccine will be available by the end of the year, is turning to his son-in-law to help streamline the effort, branded, “Operation Warp Speed.” Kushner is working alongside White House senior adviser Peter Navarro, who pitched the operation via memo to the president’s coronavirus task force as early as this February.

The hope inside the White House is that Kushner will be able to use his relationships in the private sector to speed up the normally lengthy development process, two sources familiar with Kushner’s involvement say.

“Jared has been vocal in meetings about wanting to engage the private sector on the development of a vaccine in a similarly successful way that the administration did on ventilators, PPE, and others,” a White House official said on Tuesday.
It is one thing to ramp up production of something that is already a proven product. (And Kushner did not do that very well.) It is someone harder to create a totally new vaccine and the facilities to produce it in quantities much greater than any vaccine has ever been produced before.

It's my guess that real entrepreneurs and pharmaceutical managers will point a middle finger at Jared (in diplomatic terms he may miss). All players have the basic planning already in place and are not waiting for the word of the WH. Any "helpful hand" of Jared will screw up later, so companies will stick to the red tape as best as possible. Remember the CDC taking shortcuts on those tests?

Consider Bill Gates and his foundation that supports several (seven to ten?) vaccine research projects and in parallel is building fabrication facilities for each specific one. His reasoning: it's cheap at the global economic cost of Covid-19 to write off several tens of millions of investment for the research and production facilities that does not make it to the market.
