Enduring extreme media scrutiny from being under congressional investigation, President Trump’s Senior Advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner lashed out a reporter Saturday morning. Until now, Kushner has remained completely silent in public about all matters relating to the President, or allegations that he colluded with the Russian government to win the 2016 election.
When a reporter followed Mr. Kushner to ask for his comment on the Russia investigation, he responded with a hostile rant, marking a definitive end to his trend of silence. The journalist reportedly asked Kushner, “What were your conversations with the Russians during your father-in-law’s campaign?”
Clearly frustrated, Kushner told the reporter, “I have no ties with the Russians.” To which, the reporter responded, “So, are you denying that you have ever had secret conversations with the Russians?”
This was apparently the breaking point for Kushner, as he loosened his tie, red in the face, and approached the reporter. Nearly yelling into the microphone, he made the following statements:
“What do you want from me? Do you have any idea how much pressure her dad brings on me? I have to do whatever he tells me! Ever since I started dating his daughter, he’s held his approval of our relationship over my head like a carrot on a stick!
I’m just trying to impress my in-laws! Is that so hard for you to understand? You think your in-laws are bad? Most guys just have to endure their father-in-law’s stupid fishing stories! Not me! Instead he made me a CEO at 25 years-old, and told me that he won’t have a LOSER in his family. Do you have any idea what it’s like to be under his thumb? No! I don’t think you do!
I don’t want to hear it! You’ve all been dealing with him for a 5 months. I’ve been dealing with his sick games for over a decade! I’m like a some kind of toy for him. He wouldn’t even let Ivanka have the name Kushner! He wanted me to change my name to Trump!
But you think you’re going to get to the bottom of it? You haven’t even scratched the surface of the things he makes me do for him!”
It was at this point Jared Kushner was forcefully interrupted by his personal lawyer who whispered in his ear. Kushner immediately calmed down, fixed his tie, and stated, “The allegations being made about President Trump and me are completely false propaganda created by the fake liberal news media. I have no further comments.”
Kushner remained silent as he hurried away to his vehicle and left the area. The White House has not responded to any requests for comment on this matter.
