White House adviser had meltdown over face masks.
A new book says that senior White House adviser Jared Kushner had a meltdown at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic when he raged, “You f***ing moron! We’ll all be dead by June!”
The claim is made in Nightmare Scenario: Inside the Trump Administration’s Response to the Pandemic That Changed History, which is authored by Washington Post journalists Yasmeen Abutaleb and Damian Paletta.
Kushner apparently had the meltdown in March 2020 in response to being told by Assistant Health Secretary for Preparedness and Response Robert Kadlec that an order of 600 million face masks wouldn’t be delivered until June.
The adviser reportedly threw his pen against the wall while declaring, “”You fucking moron! We’ll all be dead by June!”
The book also claims that Trump considered sending COVID-19 infected patients to the Guantanamo Bay prison camp in Cuba to keep them away from the rest of the population and prevent the spread of the virus.
As we highlighted last week, another book also claimed that President Trump blamed Kushner for focusing too much on the black vote before the election, a tactic Trump thought was futile.
According to the report, Trump told Kushner, “I’ve done all this stuff for the blacks – it’s always Jared telling me to do this. And they all fucking hate me, and none of them are going to vote for me.”
Many America First activists tried to warn the Trump administration that Kushner was a globalist and was harming the re-election campaign, although his influence only appeared to grow throughout 2020.
