in kushner we don't trust

Ann Coulter insists Jared Kushner wrote the Times op-ed, and she has a wild theory to back it up

After spending years aiding the Trump administration, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are worried they'll never get back into the liberal paradise of New York City. So Kushner anonymously told the world that he's part of an internal White House "resistance," hoping the couple's Hamptons buddies would forgive them for their time in Washington.

That's Ann Coulter's theory behind which White House senior official wrote last week's bombshell New York Times op-ed, she told The Daily Beast in an interview published Thursday. And his purported authorship is just one of the conservative commentator's many problems with President Trump's son-in-law:

"He and Ivanka are going to have to go back to the Upper East Side and go to the Hamptons," Coulter explains. "They're probably worried that [President] Trump will be removed within the next few years. [...] [The op-ed] was right after Labor Day, so they were probably feeling wistful for the Hamptons. And the only way they can get back in is if they can say, 'Don't worry, we're the ones who stopped the wall.'"

Coulter added: "I don't particularly want to attack Jared, but, okay, there was 'Fire Jim Comey, it's a great idea.' There was ‘Endorse Luther Strange, it'll be a great idea.' There was 'Let's start with tax cuts, because that's what Mitch McConnell wants.' There was 'Let's hire Anthony Scaramucci — he's fantastic, Pops!'" [The Daily Beast]

As Coulter laments in her newest book, Resistance Is Futile!, "Trump hasn't shot Kushner, and he probably won't, since he doesn't even realize that Kushner is wrecking his presidency." Read more about Coulter's Kushner vendetta at The Daily Beast.
