Kushner on Lex Fridman: “Schumer Told My Mom I was Going to Jail”

Jared Kushner has got to be the single most boring sonovabitch you’ve ever heard talk. Say whatever else you want about this guy, but I’ve never seen any individual this boring, ever in my life.

The Hill:

Jared Kushner, the son-in-law and ex-adviser to former President Trump, said Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y) told his mother’s friends he was going to jail for his involvement in the 2016 election and alleged ties with Russia.

“My poor mom, I told her to stop, you know reading whatever, I said, ‘I promise you, we didn’t do anything wrong, it’s good,’” Kushner said on the Lex Fridman Podcast. “But you know, she’d call me say, well you know, ‘our friends were on the Upper East Side were talking with Chuck Schumer who says Jared’s going to jail.’”

That story is kind of hilarious.

I guess it demonstrates what everyone already knew – that Kushner is a standard Jew Democrat.

It’s also almost anti-Semitic in its extreme stereotype: “Oy vey, my powar muttha, Chucky, whatcha tella my muttha all dees thang fow, ya gonna give er a heart attack!”

Kushner is much more religious than Schumer, but it’s understood among New York Jews (and really, every Jew on earth) that Jews don’t send other Jews to jail. They have their own rabbinical courts to deal with disputes between Jews.

Fridman is also a Jew, so he understands all of this subtext, but at no point does he do what would be very appropriate and say “now, because I know we have goyim in the audience, let me just unpack that…”

It’s such a strange dynamic, having these people among us, in the open, but also sort of pretending that they’re not in the open – and we’re not allowed to talk about them as if they are in the open.
