Judas Kushner

This post is also available in: German

Anyone read Ann Coulter’s latest column? She unleashes hell.

Even after Trump won the presidency, Jared Kushner was embarrassed by his father-in-law, according to Vicky Ward’s terrific new book, Kushner, Inc.: Greed. Ambition. Corruption. The Extraordinary Story of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump

In a speech to hundreds of New York bankers and businessmen on Dec. 16, 2016, Jared admitted that Trump was “easy to hate from afar.” But not to worry, he said, Trump wouldn’t be keeping his campaign promises — especially on immigration.

One banker who heard the speech was appalled, shocked by Jared’s arrogance in thinking he could “control” the president.

Joke’s on him. Turns out Jared was right. He does control Trump.

She goes on to list all the ways Judas Kushner betrayed and undermined the MAGA agenda on which Trump campaigned. For example,

Early in the administration, Jared demanded that Trump endorse the widely unpopular establishment Republican, Luther Strange, in the 2017 special Senate race in Alabama to replace Jeff Sessions. 

Like night follows day, Trump suffered a humiliating defeat. It turned out Alabamians preferred anyone to Strange. First they voted for a nut in the primary, and then for a Democrat in the general.

If she’s referring to that “nut” Roy Moore, I’m pleased to inform her that Moore now leads in an Alabama Senate poll (and his support among women is higher than among men).

I wonder how many will recall that I made a prediction, soon after Trump’s inauguration, that the biggest danger to his presidency would be family in his inner circle? I wrote that Javanka could become Trump’s Achilles’ Heel. My reasoning was simple: No one near to Trump and tuned into the MAGA zeitgeist would feel free to criticize “daddy’s little girl” (who is a garden variety cosmopolitan shitlib from all accounts), and Jared’s ideological loyalty would be, first and last, to his tribe.

I made a related prediction a few months back, when it became obvious the Trump Train was headed for derailment: Bernard Sanders would win in 2020 if Trump didn’t execute a course correction soon.

There have been glimmers of a correction recently, but nothing will send a message as loud and clear as President Trump kicking Judas Kushner out of the White House.

Do it for the Forgotten Americans, Mr. Trump, even if you must sacrifice a Favored American.
