White House senior advisor Jared Kushner was praised for his deception skills on MSNBC — by his own biographer.
Kushner biographer Vicky Ward was interviewed by MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber on his show, “The Beat.”
The host played a clip of Kushner whitewashing the role Russia played during the 2016 presidential election. Kushner has been widely panned for the remarks, with Fox News anchor Shepard Smith having said on air, “Kushner’s diminishment of Russian interference is deceptive.”
“I think what you saw this morning was a master class by Jared Kushner, he is an entirely plausible liar,” Ward said.
Ward is the author of the 2019 book Kushner, Inc.: Greed. Ambition. Corruption. The Extraordinary Story of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.
“You have to separate style from substance, his style was smooth, polished,” she explained. “This is what makes him so dangerous.”
“You listen to what he says and it is terrifying, right?” she continued.
Melber asked Ward about Shepard Smith’s remarks on Fox News.
“Good for Shep Smith, right? He called it right,” she argued.
“I would say for Jared Kushner, it is probably not great when you lose Fox News — you’ve kind of reach the end of the line,” she added.

Sorry for the question but why do we need camo in space?
BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women
The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.
The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.
"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.
Dershowitz is running a ‘bizarro defense’ of Trump: Harvard Law colleague says ‘Alan is just completely wacko’
Two of the most famous names associated with Harvard Law School had competing appearances on MSNBC on Friday.
It began when Alan Dershowitz, a professor emeritus, was interviewed MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber about his new role officially representing President Donald Trump during the Senate impeachment trial.
Dershowitz claimed that neither abuse of power nor obstruction of Congress count as "high crimes" under the constitution.
Professor Alan Dershowitz, who has also been associated with Harvard Law for five decades, was asked about Dershowitz's argument during an interview with Chris Hayes.
