Jared, Ivanka Won’t Like This – Lincoln Project Launches Mobile Billboards
Earlier this week Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner had Trump family attorney Mark Kasowitz fire off a threatening letter to the folks at The Lincoln Project, saying they were going to sue the anti Trump group over billboards it had erected in Times Square. The side-by-side billboards mock the very image-conscious couple for their callous public statements about the suffering of millions of Americans during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Lincoln Project wasn’t terribly impressed with Kasowitz’s missive and responded, “We consider it important that in Times Square, the crossroads of the world, people are continuously reminded of the cruelty, audacity and staggering lack of empathy the Trumps and the Kushners have displayed towards the American people,” the group responded. “The billboards stay up.”
It also promised further action and today it came in the form of a two-pronged attack by land and sea.
Ron Steslow, co-founder of the Lincoln Project, firmly stuck his thumb in Javanka’s eye, tweeting: “In honor of their demands, here is the boat we hired, on its way to Mar-a-Lago. And our digital billboard truck circling Trump Tower in NYC.”
They threatened to sue @ProjectLincoln for “enormous” sums.

It’s not immediately clear how long the truck and boat, which duplicate the New York billboard messages, will be deployed in proximity to Donald Trump’s properties. It is hoped, however, that they do not encounter the same fate as some of the watercraft that participated in a Trump boat parade in Texas over the Labor Day weekend. At least four boats sank in Lake Travis after being swamped by the wakes of larger craft during that demonstration of support for the president.
