Robert Kennedy’s Grandson Joined Kushner’s COVID Task Force and Blew the Whistle on it to Congress
Despite his failure to accomplish anything politically, Donald Trump keeps giving Jared Kushner new jobs. When the Coronavirus began to plague the US, the President asked his son-in-law to create a task force to combat the pandemic. With the American death toll now over 200,000, it is clear that the task force failed.
Max Kennedy Jr., the grandson of Robert F. Kennedy recently graduated from Harvard. He hoped to take the LSAT, but those plans were thwarted by COVID. He instead, joined Kushner’s COVID task force. Kennedy recently detailed his experience to the New Yorker and explained why the task force was such a disaster.
The recent college graduate went as far as sending an anonymous tip to congress. “I just couldn’t sleep,” Kennedy Jr. said. “I was so distressed and disturbed by what I’d seen.”
Kennedy Jr. described the group’s efforts to compile PPE, “It was the number of people who show up to an after-school event, not to run the greatest crisis in a hundred years. It was such a mismatch of personnel. It was one of the largest mobilization problems ever. It was so unbelievably colossal and gargantuan. The fact that they didn’t want to get any more people was so upsetting.”
The youngster had signed an NDA, but decided to out the disaster anyway. “If you see something that might be illegal, and cause thousands of civilian lives to be lost, a person has to speak out,” he explained. The Administration’s coronavirus response, “was like a family office meets organized crime, melded with ‘Lord of the Flies.’ It was a government of chaos.”
