The first son-in-law Jared Kushner rarely speaks. Instead, he lurks in the shadows plotting with the shady Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman or setting up secret communication links with the Russians to circumvent American intelligence agencies. The powerful Lincoln Project took on Kushner in its latest ad.
A group of former and relapsed Republicans has been working intently with the sole goal of ousting Donald Trump from office. The group’s brilliant founders’ messages have been chilling. This ad cut right into people’s cores with an icepick warning.
Jared Kushner, Trump’s senior White House adviser, has been assigned everything from managing the American opioid epidemic to Middle East peace. The Lincoln Project’s ad on Kushner came out on Monday, the same day the Republican National Convention (RNC) began in North Carolina. The Newsweek magazine reported that the video was entitled:
‘Evil is real. And it lives in Jared Kushner.’
A gravelly, rather threatening voice began as the video started:
‘Evil is real. We ignore it when it seems educated, polite, superficially charming, even sophisticated. We trivialize it, ignore it, and when we do it grows. ‘Trump’s COVID team led by Jared Kushner decided to ignore testing in states with Democratic governors. Evil was in that room.’
This time the Lincoln Project went after Kushner for his strategic placement in planning meetings to address the COVID-19 pandemic. Out of that planning emerged an “evil” plot. As a result, this ad reminded Americans that over 177,000 of their loved ones, their family, and their friends died unnecessarily. That number exceeded the cumulative deaths in “Pearl Harbor, 9/11, the Vietnam War, and World War One.”
The voice-over said this about Kushner’s strategy to eclipse Democratic areas in the nation:
‘[Testing strategies were] deliberate, cold, political, pre-meditated. [Not] incompetent. Call it what it is: Evil.’
At this time, one of the founding members, George Conway has left The Lincoln Project, the highly-respected Washington attorney and husband of Trump’s Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway. He announced on Twitter he was going on hiatus from social media “to devote more time to family matters.” One would wonder what life in the Conway home must be like given the disparate family political dynamics.
In a surprise move, Kellyanne Conway also announced she planned to leave the White House by month’s end. She has been one of Trump’s longest-serving advisers. However, she will be a speaker at the RNC.
Trump planned on speaking each night, which was a break from the practice of building momentum until the GOP president speaking at the height of anticipation.
Senate Majority Leader “Moscow” Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced he would not go to the RNC this year. Instead, he planned to send a videotaped message. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was also scheduled for the docket.
When the president caught wind of Goodyear Tires employees being asked to remove their red MAGA hats, he attacked the major Ohio employer. He called for his followers to boycott Goodyear products.
The Lincoln Project voice continued:
‘Times in Ohio are getting tough. Donald Trump is making it worse; demanding a boycott to put Goodyear out of business. That’s 3,300 union jobs. Jobs that sustain families all over Ohio. Why? His feelings got hurt.’
In the past, the former Republicans have produced videos on Kushner, claiming he was the “Secretary of Failure.” They were also critical of his part in the COVID-19 pandemic.
Twitter world went crazy when they heard about Kushner. Take a look at some of our favorites below:
