Trump predicted he would lose — and blamed Jared Kushner: ‘It’s going to be your fault’ - Raw Story - Celebrating 16 Years of Independent Journalism. On Thursday, The New York Times reported that in the fall, President Donald Trump pre-emptively blamed his son-in-law Jared Kushner in case he lost the election — because Kushner had been trying to promote more COVID-19 testing, and Trump didn't want that info on how many people were infected to be publicly known.

The report revealed that Trump broadly hated the strategy Kushner had been taking on fighting the pandemic, and suggested that we should "do what Mexico does" and not administer tests to anyone who isn't grievously ill. "Mr. Trump never came around to the idea that he had a responsibility to be a role model, much less that his leadership role might require him to publicly acknowledge hard truths about the virus — or even to stop insisting that the issue was not a rampaging pandemic but too much testing," said the report.

Federal Election Commission records show that the Trump campaign has made no salary payments to chief strategist Jason Miller, who came on board in June, or to campaign manager Bill Stepien, who joined the campaign in late 2018 and took over the top job from Brad Parscale in July. Kushner agreed to both arrangements, and personally directed the payments to Miller, the person involved said. While the Trump campaign has reported $20,000 monthly salary payments to chief of staff Stephanie Alexander and senior adviser Katrina Pierson, it has not done the same for COO Jeff DeWit or senior advisers Bob Paduchik and Bill Shine.

Bombshell report: Jared Kushner set up shell company that diverted campaign cash to Trump family members

The president’s son-in-law and White House senior adviser directed his sister-in-law Lara Trump, Vice President Mike Pence’s nephew John Pence and Trump campaign CFO Sean Dollman to sit on the shell company’s board, a source familiar with the operation told Business Insider. The company, which was incorporated as American Made Media Consultants Corporation and American Made Media Consultants LLC, spent $617 million of the campaign’s $1.26 billion war chest, according to campaign finance records.

Trump’s top advisers and campaign staff told Insider they were unaware of how the shell company operated, and campaign officials even conducted an internal audit of its operations under former campaign manager Brad Parscale but never reported those findings, and the next campaign manager Bill Stepien had little involvement with AMMC.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe shreds Jared Kushner for bragging about Trump’s COVID-19 disaster

President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and White House adviser told reporter Bob Woodward the president had wrested control of the pandemic response away from the doctors, and the “Morning Joe” host said that admission was damning. “We actually have the ‘Perry Mason’ moment,” Scarborough said. “We actually have the person on the witness stand who is actually testifying against interests for himself and for Donald Trump. They deliberately, deliberately ‘freed’ America from the doctors and the scientists, so by the end of this, 400,000 people will be dead. Almost as many Americans who died in World War II.” More than 220,000 have already died from the virus in the U.S., and Scarborough said the president and his son-in-law are obviously not up to the task of preventing tens of thousands more deaths. ‘They are on a different planet’: CNN panel shocked by Jared Kushner’s delusional COVID predictions.

‘They are on a different planet’: CNN panel shocked by Jared Kushner’s delusional COVID predictions

In an interview conducted this past April, Kushner told Woodward that the administration was moving away from a containment strategy for the virus and was instead pushing toward reopening the economy as soon as possible. “There were three phases [of the pandemic],” Kushner told Woodward. “There’s the panic phase, the pain phase and then the comeback phase. I do believe that last night symbolized kind of the beginning of the comeback phase.” ‘Trump’s in charge — not the doctors’: Jared Kushner bragged about ignoring medical experts to Bob Woodward.

Jared Kushner ripped to shreds for Fox News comments on Black Americans

President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and White House adviser appeared Monday morning on Fox News, where he argued that the administration’s policies would help Black Americans, but only if they wanted to succeed. “President Trump’s policies are the policies that can help people break out of the problems that they’re complaining about but he can’t want them to be successful more than that they want to be successful,” Kushner said. He also claimed that the nationwide protests were insincere after George Floyd’s killing by police. “You saw a lot of people who were just virtual signaling,” Kushner said. “They would go on Instagram and cry, or put a slogan on their jersey or write something on a basketball court, and quite frankly that was doing more to polarize the country than it was to bring people forward.” Racist prick.— Jo (@JoJoFromJerz) October 26, 2020. Whistleblower outs Kushner for COVID task force failures: ‘Organized crime melded with Lord of the Flies’ A former member of the White House coronavirus task force explained why he blew the whistle on what he saw as deadly incompetence within the group.

Whistleblower outs Kushner for COVID task force failures: ‘Organized crime melded with Lord of the Flies’

Max Kennedy, Jr. — the 26-year-old grandson of Robert F. Kennedy — told The New Yorker that he initially agreed to join the task force that was being put together by White House adviser Jared Kushner because of the serious nature of the COVID-19 pandemic. “But it was such an unprecedented time,” he explained to The New Yorker’s Jane Mayer. “It didn’t seem political—it seemed larger than the Administration.” Kennedy recalled being shocked because a skeleton crew of unpaid task force volunteers were forced to use their personal laptops and email accounts to track down medical supplies.

“It was the number of people who show up to an after-school event, not to run the greatest crisis in a hundred years,” he observed. “I don’t know the first thing about disease modeling,” Kennedy told Smith before declining the task. ‘We’re screwed’: New details emerge about Jared Kushner’s refusal to help battle COVID-19.

‘We’re screwed’: New details emerge about Jared Kushner’s refusal to help battle COVID-19

A bipartisan group of heavy hitters and business leaders met March 20 at the Federal Emergency Management Agency to discuss how to make and distribute personal protective equipment, and certain government officials urged them to return the next day to meet with President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior White House adviser, reported Vanity Fair. “The federal government is not going to lead this response,” Kushner told the group at the start of the meeting, seated in a chair taller than the others around the conference table. “It’s up to the states to figure out what they want to do.” “We were all saying, ‘Mr. Kushner, if you want to fix this problem for PPE and ventilators, there’s a path to do it, but you have to make a policy change,’” recalled one person who attended the meeting. Kushner’s indifference toward COVID-19 suffering ‘flabbergasted’ meeting attendees: ‘Basically an out-of-body experience’

Attendees are still angry over Jared Kushner’s reaction to their offers to help fight the coronavirus in the earliest stages of the pandemic. President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior White House adviser refused to initiate a federal response during the March 21 meeting, insisting the free market and states should take care of distributing medical equipment, reported Vanity Fair. “We had so much potential to commandeer against this,” one person who attended the meeting told the magazine.

“We had a real system for contact tracing, the world’s best mobile engineers on standby. There was a real opportunity to have a coordinated response.” Business representatives pledged to make the badly needed equipment if the government promised to purchase it through the Defense Production Act, but some attendees suspected Kushner didn’t care about the pandemic because it was largely affecting Democratic states at that time. Lincoln Project's New Ad Calls Jared Kushner 'Evil' Over Pandemic Response.

Jared Kushner gets salty with CBS host after she asks about COVID: ‘That’s a very negative framing’ White House adviser Jared Kushner appeared to be irritated with CBS host Margaret Brennan on Sunday after she asked about COVID-19 and President Donald Trump’s crusade against mail-in voting. Brennan began her interview with Kushner by offering her condolences on the loss of the president’s brother, Robert Trump. “Obviously a very tough moment for the president, but he is looking forward to continuing to do great things and make his brother proud,” Kushner said. The CBS host went on to press Kushner about his role in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Do you believe the administration has control of the virus, and what do you think you’ve done wrong?” Brennan wondered. After several more questions about the pandemic, Kushner tried to push back. “I came on today to talk about the historic breakthrough that the president achieved for peace in the Middle East,” the president’s adviser complained. Inside Kanye West’s “Almost Daily” Chats With Jared Kushner—And Whether The White House Exploits His Mental State.

As Kanye West’s bizarre presidential campaign has moved from Twitter sideshow to potential spoiler—the billionaire rapper this week released a website and campaign platform as he moves to get on the ballot in pivotal states—those around him increasingly worry about his mental health issues. And specifically whether one consigliere is trying to exploit them. According to multiple sources, White House senior advisor Jared Kushner has been speaking with West regularly since his July 4 tweet declaring that he was running for president. While Republican operatives rush to try get him on ballots across the country, the New York Times reported earlier today that Kushner and his wife, Ivanka Trump, met with West last weekend in Telluride, Colorado. The connection goes much further. Is Jared Kushner Illegally Soliciting Campaign Help From Kanye West? This week Forbes broke the story that Jared Kushner, “de facto chief” of President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign, has been speaking “regularly,” “almost daily,” with Kanye West since West’s July 4 tweet declaring that he is running for president.

“Regular” conversations between the head of one presidential campaign and an opposing candidate looks like coordination and is highly irregular. Depending on what they’re talking about, they may be breaking campaign finance laws. If Kushner has explicitly or implicitly requested or recommended that West spend money on West’s candidacy, with the motivation of having West siphon votes from Joe Biden, then Kushner has arguably violated federal law by soliciting in-kind contributions from West to Trump in excess of the applicable $2,000 contribution limit.

Earlier this spring, when the country was facing massive shortages of personal protective equipment and other medical supplies needed to combat the novel coronavirus pandemic, the Trump administration announced with great fanfare something called Project Airbridge. The effort, spearheaded by Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, provided taxpayer funded cargo flights from Asia to expedite the delivery of PPE by private companies in the US. New information released today by the House Committee on Oversight and Reform provides a more detailed look at the administration’s response to the pandemic-related medical supply shortages.

When I watch Jared Kushner speak on television, I am immediately reminded of Little Lord Fauntleroy – a person who is spoiled, conceited, and characterized by a pompous air of decadence, intellectualism, and moral superiority. Little Lord Fauntleroy was the major character in a novel of the same name by the British author, Frances Hodgson Burnett, published in 1886. As Washington Post columnist Max Boot points out, Kushner is the type of rich, privileged person who former University of Oklahoma and Dallas Cowboys football coach Barry Switzer described as “born on third base and go through life thinking they hit a triple.”

Kushnerville finds itself in unfamiliar territory as coronavirus restrictions halt its apparatus of intimidation. It was the day after April rent was officially due — April 6 — and Kevin Maddox was officially late. The week before, he had lost both of his jobs within a few days of each other. Trump administration winds down Jared Kushner's signature 'Project Airbridge' Now we’re told it was “so successful at delivering massive amounts of critical supplies to the American people, that now there’s enough PPE in this country for us to return to the sea bridge method we used before Coronavirus,” according to White House spokesman Hogan Gidley. Medical workers and others on the front lines don’t agree with either the assessment that there’s enough PPE now or that Project Airbridge was so successful. ”From the start, Project Airbridge has done nothing to increase American manufacturing of [personal protective equipment] or even global production of PPE,” a spokesman for Washington Gov.

Jay Inslee emailed NBC News.
