NY Times OP-ED: Jared Kushner is Going to “Get Us All Killed”
Despite only having experience in the world of real estate, Jared Kushner has been given a number of delicate political projects by his father-in-law. After failing to make peace in the Middle East, the first son-in-law is helping the White House out on its COVID-19 response.
On Thursday afternoon, Kushner gave his first press conference on the matter, coming off as arrogant and blaming multiple states for their coronavirus related issues. Penning a column for the New York Times, Michelle Goldberg wrote that the businessman is in way over his head and is going to “get us all killed.”
Goldberg began her piece:
“Even now, it’s hard to believe that someone with as little expertise as Kushner could be so arrogant. Kushner has succeeded at exactly three things in his life. He was born to the right parents, married well and learned how to influence his father-in-law. Most of his other endeavors — his biggest real estate deal, his foray into newspaper ownership, his attempt to broker a peace deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians — have been failures.”
The writer also wrote about Kushner’s arrogance in talking about New York’s governor Andrew Cuomo. “I have all this data about I.C.U. capacity,’ Kushner reportedly said. ‘I’m doing my own projections, and I’ve gotten a lot smarter about this. New York doesn’t need all the ventilators.”
