New Lincoln Project ad crowns Jared Kushner 'Secretary of Failure'

Whether it's trying to establish peace between the Israelis and Palestinians or setting up a national coronavirus testing plan, President Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner "has never met a problem he couldn't f--k up," the Lincoln Project says in a new ad released Wednesday.

Kushner is a "pampered princeling" who doesn't have the experience or knowledge necessary to take on any of the tasks Trump has thrown at him, which makes him "a perfect fit for this White House," the ad declares.

Trump tapped Kushner to help lead the administration's coronavirus response, which has resulted in "150,000 people dead and an economy in ruins," and the Lincoln Project says this is proof that Trump doesn't and never has understood the gravity of the situation. "If you've ever wondered whether this president took COVID-19 seriously," the ad states, "look no further than who he put in charge of protecting America's health: Jared Kushner, Trump's Secretary of Failure."
