One Problem with the COVID19 Response: Trump Went to Jared

1 min read

Jared Kushner has no expertise in epidemiology. He hasn’t any expertise in diplomacy, trade negotiations, or criminal justice, but that hasn’t stopped Trump from putting his son-in-law in charge of administration policy on those topics. And we learned this week that Jared decided that the state of New York did not need the 30,000 ventilators requested by Governor Cuomo because Jared had his own projections. “I know how to make this government run now,” Jared said, according to Vanity Fair.
When historians study the Trump administration’s bungling of this global pandemic, Jared Kushner will get a chapter all his own. Until then, MOMocrats Karoli, Aliza Worthington, and Donna Schwartz Mills will talk about it. Other topics in this week’s political discussion from the progressive point of view are the Navy’s recall of a commander who committed the grave sin of trying to protect his crew from coronavirus, the deepening financial abyss the pandemic is causing Americans, and a general election that is still going to happen in November.
