Coronavirus Taskforce briefing at the White House

Jared Kushner ditched a national coronavirus testing plan in the early days of the pandemic because blue states were being hit harder & he thought the White House could just blame Democratic governors for the virus, rather than care about Americans. [Towleroad]

    Kushner is pure evil.

    • Buttons2122 says:

      You beat me to this comment. Yes, this picture sends chills down my spine for some reason.

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      Look at his before and after faces. You can see him go from the innocuous, relatively benign mess-up he once was to the greedy, craven manipulator he has turned into. Or maybe I shouldn’t say “turned into,” since it was always there. He just grew into his malevolent legacy.

      Jared Kushner’s face before and after:


      • Tiffany :) says:

        His eyes are totally different now. It’s just like Kylie. Naturally they had eyes where you couldn’t see the lid when they looked straight ahead. Then they get it tweaked, and all of a sudden they have heavy eyelids that show a great deal when looking straight ahead. It gave Kylie “bedroom eyes”, but Kushner’s eyes look hollow and gaunt above the lid.

        I wonder if it is surgery or Botox.

      • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

        Eyebrow lift, nose job (the tip), and the bags under his eyes are gone. I think they put in a straw and sucked out any brains and humanity that may’ve been in there as well.

      • LahdidahBaby says:

        The OG–love your comment!

  2. Jan says:

    There is already a mansion in hell right next to the lake of fire reserved for this jackass, his wife, her siblings and her father. 150,000 dead on their hands!

  3. Coco says:

    That picture of Kushner brings to mind the lyrics of ‘You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.’

    However, that’s unfair to the Grinch, who had a redemptive story arc.

  4. Mich says:

    It takes a special kind of stupid to think that a virus is going to confine itself to blue states.

  5. Nina Simone says:

    I’m in tears when I think about all the people that have needlessly died (including family members of several friends) due to this administration’s wickedness. I feel so powerless but I know they will get theirs. I’m sure of it.

    They and their progeny will get their comeuppance

  6. Allergy says:

    He’s one of the most malicious people in history.

  7. nicegirl says:

    Evil personified

    • phaedra7 says:

      And because of his personality, this is the guy that damned Take-A-💩 daddy-in-law no doubt approved and gave his blessing for fav daughter Ivanka to be wedded to him. “Chip (from buffalo, other animals and humans) off the old block”.

      • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

        Let’s not forget, his OWN father is a stellar, greedy, evil
        PO 💩 who went so far as to set up his BIL for blackmail (with a hooker), and SENT THE PICS TO HIS OWN SISTER! The Kushners are slum lords as well.

  8. Zen says:

    Does anyone else think he plucks his eyebrows? Just me?

    • Badrockandroll says:

      I have spent an inordinate amount of time wondering this – there is a picture where he delicately touches that fabulous arch with a tenderly manicured pinky, that I have stared and stared at. His wife is made of plastic, and one assumes the Crasshole thinks that the orange hue and the cotton candy combover is attractive. No one in this troupe is going to be known for their intelligence, empathy or aesthetics.

    • Adrien says:

      A botched eyelid and brow lift operation. Not really botched if he specifically asked for that.

      • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

        The bags under his eyes were also removed along with that brow job, and the tip of his nose shortened.

    • Anne Call says:

      Now I can’t unsee that. Entire trump klan is just so disgustingly evil and hideous on the inside and the outside.

    • Juls says:

      Totally. He also looks and sounds like he never went through puberty, like in that movie where the guy had a brain tumor that prevented it.

    • Scal says:

      There’s a tweet where someone has before and after pictures of Kushner taken 2 years apart. You can literally see the moment when he botoxed his dimples off his face.

      He does not look like the same person at all.

  9. Lala11_7 says:

    There is no word in the English language that can describe the LOATHING that I have for the Kruddy Krushners & the Tramp a– Trumps…

    • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

      I SO wish there was a “like” button here for this comment. I’d hit it a million times!

  10. Adrien says:

    If you are male and planning to have upper blepharoplasty, don’t ask for a Kenny Rogers special. That doctor will operate on you under female facial standards and remove too much skin. Well unless you want that Jared Kushner look.

  11. Lauren says:

    Does Kushner’s ass backward decision to let blue states die count as as a form of Genocide? , Or do political groups not count under the intention of the “targeting specific groups” definition of Genocide since it is not a religion or race?

    • Lizzie Bathory says:

      Technically genocide covers attacks on “national, ethnical, racial or religious groups,” not political ones, but I bet there’s evidence that they were influenced by the fact that Black & brown communities were more heavily affected, so it probably still counts.

    • Miranda says:

      If not genocide, I think it’s at least democide, per R.J. Rummel: “the intentional killing of an unarmed or disarmed person by government agents acting in their authoritative capacity and pursuant to government policy or high command”. An example would be the Great Leap Forward, when Mao knew before it began or very early on that the policies would lead to famine, but pressed on because he decided those millions of lives were worth losing to advance his political goals.

      • adastraperaspera says:

        Well said. Yes, it is a criminal mass murder event, perpetrated by Trump, Kushner, et. al. Stalin’s killings might be under this umbrellas as well.

  12. greenmonster says:

    Thank you for the link to the Young Guns II premiere photos. I have to watch that movie again :)

    • M says:

      Yes that link just brought me joy to counteract the disgust of Kushner’s face. And it took me down a rabbit hole bc I did not remember that Robin Lively (Teen Witch forever!!!) dated Jason Priestly so I had to google her and also forgot she was Blake Lively’s sister!

  13. North of Boston says:

    Kushner is an evil, vile creature. He and his 666 Fifth Avenue cronies ought to burn in the raging fires of Hell for all eternity for the crimes they have committed against humanity.

    And a full-time grifter – see what he did in China with his sister, selling US golden ticket visas off to those who put money into his families real estate businesses, see his claim that the National Strategic Stockpile of emergency supplies was “ours” meaning his and Trump’s to dole out as they saw fit, or hoard as they chose, not something that states could access if they needed like, IDK, when thousands of their citizens were dying during a pandemic, see whatever the heck when on with him and his buddies when they decided to try their hand at developing, sourcing COVID tests, with themselves or a shell company as the middleman, so they could scrape some profit out of a pandemic and control the supply chain (why, exactly do you think the US was so dead set on declining the WHO’s offer of testing supplies? I mean, asked from the “whoo hoo! Folks in blue states are dying and we can hang it on Democrats … um, tell that to Gov Baker (R) Massachusetts, and Gov Hogan (R) Maryland etc etc etc.

  14. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Genocide. Pure and simple. Knowing and doing nothing is worse than simply doing nothing.

  15. Veronica says:

    Years from now, I hope history books recognize this pandemic for what it was – a concentrated class and ethnic cleansing. The largest share of the deaths are among non-white minorities and the impoverished, those traditionally denied power and economic mobility by the American power structure.

    I cried thinking about what November may bring the other day. People should heed this warning. They are telling you exactly how much they’re willing to kill you. This is just the start. They’ll let nature rip through the vulnerable populations and do the work for them, then strike later with other means when it’s less costly to do so. We need to stop kidding themselves that the system will protect us from the worst case scenario when it hasn’t stopped them thus far.

  16. KellyRyan says:

    We need to remember keeping it a part of our history. It’s a lesson in safeguarding ourselves, our community our country. At times I’m concerned we’re not focused on removing him under Article 25.

    • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

      Article 25 ONLY WORKS when the Cabinet members agree to it (I don’t remember if it has to be unanimous or a majority). Twitler’s Cabinet is made up of a$$ kissing, greedy, and most likely blackmailed sycophants. It will NEVER happen.

  17. Mina_Esq says:

    He has the worst instincts of anyone that has ever served a US president. He is stupid and doesn’t even know it.

    • nicegirl says:

      If you’re stupid, and you don’t know it, you’re Jared Kushner, Attorney Mina? sung to the tune of ‘if you’re happy and you know it’ ?

  18. Mellie says:

    I might hate Kushner more than Trump…I dunno. He’s pure evil while Trump is dumb, ignorant really.
    Kushner is way more calculated/cunning/cruel.

  19. Nana says:

    One of the most understated, moving, painfully beautiful pieces of acting that I’ve ever seen was Phillip Seymour Hoffman in Magnolia…
    And loved him in his role of Jude Law’s best friend in the Talented Mr Ripley.
    What a loss… :( But what a legacy he left to his craft.

  20. jferber says:

    Nothing surprises me with this one. And yes, his ugly on the inside has become his ugly on the outside. He has the face he deserves. On November 3rd of this year, let’s slap that face and the orange one behind it by voting this garbage out of office (though this creature actually has no real business to be in any position in the White House, just like his father-in-law). Get them out at any cost, but get them out. Murderers and thieves.

  21. Intheknow says:

    Do a psychoanalysis of Lord Valdemort and you’ve got Jared Kushner. He even looks like Voldemort at the beginning of the evil transformation. If Kushner wasn’t a white dude, he’d be working in a gas station.

  22. ChillyWilly says:

    His teeth scare me. Why are they so pointy?? 👺

  23. jferber says:

    He looks like the perfect Disney villain–deadly, with a silky British accent (instead of his pipsqueak falsetto). Dumb as nails and mean and relentless as a stampede of bulls. Other people’s bulls, of course, why use your own? Because the bulls belong to “us,” like the federal ventilators. This one is ripe for a messy, humiliating takedown.
