Son-In-Law-In-Chief Kushner Reassures Us About COVID-19

Son-In-Law-In-Chief Kushner Reassures Us About COVID-19

Back in April, the Secretary of Slim SuitsTrump son-in-law, and Senior Advisor to the President Jared Kushner, fresh from bringing peace to the Middle East, was running a shadow task force on COVID-19. He called the Trump Administration’s coronavirus response “a great success story” on MAGA-friendly Fox & Friends.

It turns out he also told Bob Woodward the reason for this great success:

“There were three phases. There’s the panic phase, the pain phase and then the comeback phase. That doesn’t mean there’s not still a lot of pain and there won’t be pain for a while, but that basically was, we’ve now put out rules to get back to work. Trump’s now back in charge. It’s not the doctors. They’ve kind of — we have, like, a negotiated settlement.”

Mr. Kushner is also director of the Trump-created Office of American Innovation, and his innovative response to the Novel Coronavirus was calling his celebrity sister-in-law’s doctor dad, having him create a Facebook group to come up with COVID-19 cure ideas, and network with fellow coronavirus profiteers. Jared Kushner was the genius who told President Trump that COVID-19 was nothing to worry about, resulting in federal government inaction during January and February, when intervention would have saved thousands of lives.
