Trump might throw Kushner 'under the bus' to save his family -- and Ivanka will have to deal with it: Trump biographer

As part of a discussion on the legal peril the children of Donald Trump might be facing, the author of a biography of the president said that, if push comes to shove, Trump would throw son-in-law Jared Kushner "under the bus" to save everyone else.

Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy," Tim O'Brien, author of  "TrumpNation: The Art of Being Donald," said Ivanka Trump may have a difficult decision in her future.

"Maybe Eric [Trump] is the smart one -- Eric is staying out of it," host Reid suggested. "On that Tim, how far would Donald Trump go to protect his children and his son-in-law, if at all? "

"I think he would go to great lengths to protect his children," O'Brien replied. "I don't suspect he'd go far to protect his son-in-law. I think he would throw Jared Kushner under the bus."

"But Jared is married to Ivanka, his favorite child," the MSNBC host protested.

"Ivanka has to decide if she prefers her father or her husband. That could be a dramatic moment in this," the biographer bluntly explained.
