As Virus Raged In April, Kushner Boasted On Tape That Trump Was “Taking The Country Back From Doctors”

CNN reports:

President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner boasted in mid-April about how the President had cut out the doctors and scientists advising him on the unfolding coronavirus pandemic, comments that came as more than 40,000 Americans already had died from the virus, which was ravaging New York City. In a taped interview on April 18, Kushner told legendary journalist Bob Woodward that Trump was “getting the country back from the doctors” in what he called a “negotiated settlement.”

Kushner also proclaimed that the US was moving swiftly through the “panic phase” and “pain phase” of the pandemic and that the country was at the “beginning of 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,” Kushner said. “Trump’s now back in charge. It’s not the doctors.”

    Trump himself is bad enough, but the complete and total IGNORANCE of his kids is mind-boggling. But then, like father, like son (and daughters).

      Hello Nan. Donny Jr. just said on SPTV that the deaths from the Covid virus were almost none. So a 1,000 a day is almost none? Hugs

        It’s very apparent he and his family are from the old school that teaches if you say something often enough, people will begin to believe it.

        (And unfortunately, this old adage too often turns out to be true … )

            Well, OK … but remember, just because people believe it doesn’t necessarily make it true. 😏

    It’s no wonder Kushner was so quiet publicly the first year and change in the white house (I remember all these positions they were putting him in and he wasn’t speaking in front of the cameras). When he opens his mouth, he’s as mind-boggling as his father in law. No wonder Ivanka’s his favorite: she married another mini-Donald.

      Hello Chatty Introvert. Well said. You know how in the distant past marriages were made between the daughter of one leader / empire to the son of another leader / empire to ensure loyalties and money flows. Just like in the HBO show Game of thrones. Well I seriously think Jared and Ivanka’s marriage was more a merger of finances than a commitment of love. Hugs

        considering how old she is and still playing “daddy’s little girl”… yeah, I think you’ve got something there.
