Where Has Jared Kushner Gone in the Fight Against Coronavirus?

In February, as the White House scrambled to handle the growing coronavirus epidemic, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, stepped into what officials described as a crucial role: forging a partnership between the private sector and the federal government so they could together contain the rapidly spreading virus.

<...>

Over the past two weeks, Kushner has been notably removed from coronavirus-related operations, according to four officials working in coordination with his team. One official working in the White House said it was “unclear” exactly what he and his team had actually done over the last two weeks. Another individual familiar with Kushner’s work said they hadn’t received updates from his team in “about a week.”

<...>

“He muddied up a process that was really not needing a fix,” said Juliette Kayyem, a former assistant secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. “What that does is disempower FEMA because if at any moment Jared or one of his henchmen demand assets to be redistributed at their discretion, FEMA’s planning gets disrupted. I’ve never seen operations on something this scale being run out of the White House. Usually it’s policy and communications that they handle… but you would never run logistical operations out of the White House.”

<..>

“[Jared] could be in his office just googling ‘coronavirus,’ show the results to the president, and still get a gold sticker from his dad-in-law. He is solving the coronavirus like he’s bringing peace to the [Middle East].”

1. The disappearance of Jared Kushner from everything would be

an excellent development.

2. He's busy now...

Scooping federal money into his pockets and the cronies that want their unfair share for being complicit.

Just look for golden shovels and designer flashlights. He's in there somewhere.

I wonder how much we taxpayers will be divested of? Probably as much as the Trump Crime Family can get away with.

5. Yep, it's not easy

"STEALING" supplies from the states to put in a private company storage, and the collecting their share of the "inflated" price the private company sells the merchandise for! He wants to please King Donald.

6. You said it.

It's HARD WORK! The effort is grueling, I am sure.

He is forging the kleptocracy faction of the Regime. So far, there are many: the Theocracy Legion, the Oligarch Brigade, the Friends of Supremacists Society, the Coporatacracy Division, the Concerned Fascists of America, Citizens Divided, Big Beautiful Oil Consortium, Compassion for Dictators League, etc. The list goes on.

We get the entire package of Lifesavers with so many flavors to choose from.

11. #2 on the list of people I want to see

hauled in front of a Congressional committee (Ivanka is #1). I can just imagine Porter or Occasio Cortez or just about any Dem grilling him - how much heat will it take before his plastic carapace starts to melt?

12. He's trying to cover up all that money he stole by

confiscating PPE and having cronies sell it back. Seriously, he's spending inordinate amounts of time with CPAs trying to wash all that money he stole and it can take days to do that. If he was sick, that would be karma, but I just think he's cleaning up after the heist.
