At Thursday’s coronavirus task force briefing, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner took the stand to discuss his own role in combating the outbreak.
Commenters on social media, however, did not care for what he had to say — and roundly criticized his appearance.
I didn’t see it so let me just get this straight: Jared Kushner — who has exactly about as many qualifications for dealing with a pandemic as he did for concocting Mideast peace — was on hand to brief the American people about the #COVID19Pandemic but Dr. Fauci wasn’t? Ok then. https://t.co/I94u3dYCAB

“Let’s hear Jared Kushner’s thoughts on how to fight this pandemic” said no sane individual ever in the history of humankind.
But…here we are.

“our stockpile.” I mean: Our is the citizens of the United States, right? Or, like, Jared’s personal stash? https://t.co/9Jvdbdehuj

Thousands of people are going to die so Jared can cosplay as a government official.

Context: Jared Kushner is a Trump wannabe. As inept as Donald is, Jared is working his way UP to that point.

Jared Kushner might be the least self aware person in the entire country.

Raise your hand if you agree that Jared Kushner has no business being on the coronavirus task force ✋

Jared Kushner running a global pandemic response is the best argument imaginable for strong anti-nepotism laws. https://t.co/xfr1rI4OJY

The fact that Jared Kushner has a key role in the federal government’s response to the pandemic explains a lot.

Reminder that Jared Kushner first told Trump Coronavirus was Fake News.
Then he asked his brother’s father-in-law to crowdsource the cure in a Facebook group.
Now Trump has him in charge of the response.
We’ll never know how many lives could have been saved by mere competence.

Jared Kushner has no business telling Americans anything he is not an elected official he is a very bad landlord.

Watching Jared Kushner is like watching Doogie Howser but if like Doogie was just a regular teenager and not a child prodigy but he still performed surgeries.
