Jared Kushner Gets Backlash From His Family For Defending Trump

Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s Jewish son-in-law, was recently criticized by his family for writing an opinion letter explaining why Trump isn’t anti-Semitic.

Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump’s husband, wrote an opinion editorial in the New York Observor newspaper defending Donald Trump’s “star of David” tweet.

Kushner’s own family went against him, calling him a “moron” for defending his father-in-law’s controversial message on social media, according to Politico.

Trump’s son-in-law wrote in the New York observer that his grandparents are Holocaust survivors, therefore, people should believe that Trump is not anti-Semitic because his family knows what true bigotry is.

“It’s important “that people understand where I’m coming from when I report that I know the difference between actual, dangerous intolerance versus these labels that get tossed around in an effort to score political points.”

Marc Kushner and Jacob Schulder, family members of Kushner, don’t agree with Kushner’s actions in defending the presidential candidate.

“When an out of touch with reality nominee hires an out of touch with reality campaign manager, who is also a son-in-law, you get the BS,” Schulder reported to Gawker. “I don’t think Trump is an anti-Semite; I think he’s a lying idiot.”

Kushner could also be defending Trump since he is his campaign manager and it is his job to protect Trump’s image.
