I have often called the Trump Klan “white trash with money.” Nothing could prove this statement more than the constant failures of one Donald John Trump. There is not a single accomplishment listed in his resume.
However, I would be remiss if I didn’t discuss his protégé, Jared Kushner. DJT has faced many issues for which he is unfit to understand or address. Each time this occurs, he “passes the buck” to his son-in-law. This is hilarious; Kushner is equally without accomplishment in his pitiful life.
Prior to becoming Trump’s “coronavirus czar,” Kushner was tasked with negotiating a peace agreement between Israel and the people of Palestine. The result was very sad. Not a single Palestinian leader was included in the process. The final result was a gift to Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. “Bibi” is facing charges of corruption and the loss of an election. The “agreement” reinforced his policies and completely ignored the needs and wishes of the Palestinian people. It was politics at its worst.
Today Kushner is failing at another issue: this time it involves the lives of thousands of American men, women, and children. Without offering a single fact, Kushner issued the following assault on the efforts of several state governors who take this pandemic seriously.
“You have instances where, in cities, they’re running out, but the state still has a stockpile,” Kushner said. “And the notion of the federal stockpile was it’s supposed to be our stockpile; it’s not supposed to be state stockpiles that they then use.”
“You have to take inventory in your own state and you have to show that there’s a real need,” the White House senior aide added.
This added to the long list of alternative facts offered by this unqualified administration. One retired general who was tasked with leading disaster relief after Hurricane Katrina offered his opinion of Kushner’s lies.
“He has no idea what the hell he’s talking about,” Lt. Gen. Russell Honore told MSNBC Friday. “And he may be confusing the situation more than he’s adding.”
DJT was made aware of the advancing danger of the coronavirus in early January. His immediate response was, “it will go away as the temperature rises.” He did nothing until March. Instead of offering hope and details of how his administration is working to reduce the spread of the pandemic, he is now predicting hundreds of thousands of deaths. DJT continues to prove that he is woefully unqualified to claim the title of president.
When a reporter asked Trump about his puppet’s statement, he responded as expected, defending his idiot-in-law, and attacking the reporter.
“The federal government needs it too, not just the states,” he said. “When he says ‘our,’ he’s talking about our country … You try to make it sound so bad. You ought to be ashamed of yourself.”
As I said, ‘white trash with money.’
