Hillary Publicly Shames Kushner Over Election Delay Threat

President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner has absolutely no government experience. Yet, he has a White House job as an adviser to the president anyway. During an interview with TIME Magazine this week, Kushner initially ludicrously suggested that he could not commit to the administration seeing through the general election this November as scheduled. To be clear, no one in the administration, including the president, even has the legal power to shift the election date, but that didn’t stop Kushner from acting like it was an open question anyway. In response, Hillary Clinton herself pointed out the absurd incompetence on display.

She posted on Twitter:

‘I can’t believe I have to write this sentence, but the president’s son-in-law doesn’t get to decide when the election is.’

Indeed — Kushner has absolutely no legal place to act as though he’s able to speak with authority on when the election will be held, although he did initially acknowledge that it ultimately wasn’t “his decision” to make. Still, some have feared that the Trump team will threaten the integrity of the presidential election — again — amidst their sinking poll numbers and the concurrently increasing possibility that Trump will lose his re-election bid.

Kushner did eventually try to “clean up” his suggestion that postponing the upcoming presidential election was an open question, as Talking Points Memo put it. He insisted:

‘I have not been involved in, nor am I aware of any discussions about trying to change the date of the Presidential election.’

So in other words, it appears as though his suggestion that there was an open question was just him pulling things out of thin air. That’s far from a first for Kushner and the rest of the president’s brigade of inexperienced shills.
