NYT: Putting Jared Kushner in Charge is Utter Madness

Reporting on the White House’s herky-jerky coronavirus response, Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman has a quotation from Jared Kushner that should make all Americans, and particularly all New Yorkers, dizzy with terror.

According to Sherman, when New York’s governor, Andrew Cuomo, said that the state would need 30,000 ventilators at the apex of the coronavirus outbreak, Kushner decided that Cuomo was being alarmist. “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.” (Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s top expert on infectious diseases, has said he trusts Cuomo’s estimate.)

Even now, it’s hard to believe that someone with as little expertise as Kushner could be so arrogant, but he said something similar on Thursday, when he made his debut at the White House’s daily coronavirus briefing: “People who have requests for different products and supplies, a lot of them are doing it based on projections which are not the realistic projections.”

  1. Unregistered foreign agent, soy boy Prince Kushy is unfit to run a pet grooming service. Princess Kushy saw White Helmet staged fake gas attack in Shayrat, April 2017 and her baby tears forced daddy to Tomahawk Assad. The same White Helmets, pulled the same stunt in Douma, April 2018 and got the same response from Princess and pa.

    We are on autopilot to armageddon, with half wits in charge.

    • Actually I wouldn’t assign Kushner to anything higher than cleaning up shit at a dog park. That “Deal of the Century” was such a joke. Now he’s heading the response for Covid 19. I mean please save us from our saviors!

      Amazingly I actually agree with the Jew York Times. Like WTF?
