“Morning Joe” and wife cohost Mika Brzezinski crushed White House senior advisor and son in law of President Trump Jared Kushner Tuesday morning for boasting on CNN on that the Donald Trump administration has the coronavirus pandemic under control. The truth is infections will likely reach over 9 million, and deaths will surpass 250,000 by November 3rd Election Day.
There’s a huge backlash reverberating around the country over President Trump and his sycophant’s insistence that President Trump has done everything possible to stem the coronavirus pandemic underway in the United States.
Mika Brzezinski using a film clip used during the opening night of the Democratic National Convention where Kristin Urquiza, the daughter of a COVID-19 victim, told a national audience…
“I’m one of the many who has lost a loved one to COVID. My dad, Mark Anthony Urquiza, should be here today, but he isn’t … “
“My dad was a healthy 65-year-old. His only preexisting condition was trusting Donald Trump, and for that, he paid with his life.”
Referring to a clip of Jared Kushner speaking with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, the MSNBC cohost was barely able to contain her disgust.
“Wow,” Mika began after silently staring at her monitor. After the CNN clip of Jared, Kushner clip went on to say…
“He is just completely rewriting how they (Trump and his administration) responded to the pandemic, which was not to take it seriously and say it was going to go away and not to mobilize the Defense Production Act (in a timely manner) and get testing nationalized for the people and do contact tracing and do what other countries did to bring the numbers down so kids could go back to school.”
Mika Brzezinski went on to say…
“And at 170,000 dead, that’s not good news…That from the guy (Kushner) who said on national television months ago by July ‘we’ll be rocking and rolling again.’ If this is rocking and rolling, I don’t know what good news looks like because this is not good, and we are headed in the wrong direction.”
Wolf Blitzer asked Kushner if he still believed that Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic was a success story. Jared’s grip on reality was immediately shredded when he answered the question by saying “yes’.
The question that raises and demands is if Kushner would still think of his dystopian argument if his own children died along with the other 170,000 Americans from COVID-19?
