If you were watching Donald Trump’s press conference on MNSBC today, you had the good fortune not to have to see or hear from Jared Kushner, because the network mercifully pulled the plug the second he began talking. The mere presence of Trump’s idiot son-in-law at a coronavirus crisis press conference was jarring and offensive. But the full story is even uglier.
If you’re wondering what Jared Kushner was saying today, the great Yamiche Alcindor transcribed the most relevant quote:
Jared Kushner says some governors don't know how many ventilators they have & coronavirus outbreak is revealing manager skills.
"What a lot of the voters are seeing now is that when you elect somebody…think about who will be a competent manager during the time of crisis."

That’s right, Jared Kushner – who hasn’t been elected to anything, who has no experience or competence, and whose only “qualification” is that he’s married to the boss’ daughter – is daring to question the managerial competence of the governors who are trying to do Donald Trump’s job for him. Unbelievable.
