NY Times Just Made A Kushner Revelation That Explains Today’s Trump Twitter Tantrum

When President Trump learned that the Justice Department would be appointing a special prosecutor, he called a meeting of his closest advisors for their advice. Most agreed on one clear course of action: release a statement that embraced the investigation and signaled confidence that it would clear his campaign.

One of the few holdouts, and possibly the only dissenter, was Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who called for a combative response, the New York Times reports.

By the end of the meeting, it appeared that Kushner had lost out. A conciliatory statement claiming innocence was drafted in accordance with the wishes of chief of staff Reince Priebus, press secretary Sean Spicer, communications director Michael Dubke, and senior aides Kellyanne Conway and Steve Bannon.

As we’ve seen with every major scandal plaguing the White House however, the official statement is rarely the end of the story. No matter how contradictory or far from the decided message, Trump’s tweets always seem to have the last word.

Early this morning Trump fired off two combative tweets that were right in-line with Kushner’s advice:

In the end, nepotism won out once again in Trump’s White House, leaving staffers to wonder what the point of these meetings are if Trump will only contradict them later. They went to bed having helped Trump smooth over a tenuous situation only to find that he had undone their work the next morning with actions that led to him being ridiculed as a crybaby.

It’s difficult to muster much sympathy for those on the inside when Trump’s choice of advisors is jeopardizing global security and America’s standing on the outside. Lest we forget, the man who advised Trump to humiliate himself this morning is also in charge of fostering peace in the Middle Eastcompletely restructuring our government, and combatting the nation’s opioid crisis.

Let’s hope Kushner is better at working miracles than he is at doling out communications advice.
