Jared Kushner Ripped After Absurdly Claiming That The Federal Stockpile Is For 'Us' And Not For The States

From impeachment strategy to peace in the Middle East, President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior advisor—Jared Kushner—has taken on some ambitious projects during his time in the White House.

Unfortunately, his qualifications for these are nonexistent.


Inexplicably, Kushner spoke to reporters at the President's daily briefing on the virus that's ballooned into a national public health crisis, and his words were far from assuring.

Kushner addressed the shortage of vital medical equipment that's hindered governors across the country from effectively treating certain cases of the virus. Bidding wars over equipment have broken out between the states as a result.

Those governors and other local officials have pressured the Trump administration to use its access to federal stockpiles to oversee the distribution of this equipment, only to be told by Trump that the federal government should be used as a backup.

Kushner echoed those claims in his bizarre briefing.

Kushner said:

"The notion of the federal stockpile was it's supposed to be our stockpile. It's not supposed to be states stockpiles that they then use."

Watch below.

In the United States of America, who is the "our" Jared refers to, if not...the United States?

People were quick to correct him.






After all, take a wild guess at who paid for the supplies in these stockpiles.



Feeling assured yet?
