John Oliver Comes for "F -- king Moron" Jared Kushner Over Coronavirus Response - 2020-04-06
Last week, Jared Kushner emerged as a public-facing figure in the White House response to the coronavirus pandemic—and quickly established himself as a punching bag, thanks to his comments about the supply of ventilators available to each state.
"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," Kushner said on Wednesday. He later added, "Some governors you speak to or senators, and they don't know what's in their state."
His words inspired a New York Times opinion piece called "Jared Kushner Is Going to Get Us All Killed"—though the headline was later changed to the less inflammatory "Putting Jared Kushner In Charge Is Utter Madness."
