Jared Kushner Says African-Americans Must 'Want to Be Successful'

Source: Bloomberg

President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner said Black people must “want to be successful” in order for his father’s policies to help them.

“One thing we’ve seen in a lot of the Black community, which is mostly Democrat, is that President Trump’s policies are the policies that can help people break out of the problems that they’re complaining about,” Kushner said Monday on “Fox & Friends.” “But he can’t want them to be successful more than they want to be successful.”

Trump’s campaign believes he’s drawing more Black support for his re-election than in his 2016 run, thanks to policies including a law he signed reducing prison sentences for nonviolent offenders, increased spending for historically Black colleges and universities and new tax benefits for investors in low-income communities.

Trump lost among Black voters by about 82 percentage points in 2016 but has closed the gap in support to about 71 points this year, according to an analysis of polling data FiveThirtyEight.com published last week. He’s improved particularly with Black men, cutting his disadvantage from 72 to 57 percentage points.

Like his father-in-law, everything was handed to him from the day he was born. Even then, he almost lost it all with his bad business decisions. Then he has the nerve to lecture people who have never had all the opportunities that he has.

... the U.A.E. to pay off the 1.3 billion dollar note on his money losing property
@ 666 5th Ave. in NYC.


* He gave him the top secret Presidential Daily Briefing which told MBS that we knew he was trying to
kill Khashoggi and Khashoggi's possible locations.

Go straight to hell, you entitled little shit.

Daddy had to pay to get your ass into college, you were handed everything but that was not enough.

You had to play at federal employment and screw up everything, because YOU DON'T KNOW WTF YOU'RE DOING.

A peace treaty among countries already at peace and already trading with each other does not count. There will also be a not-so-special cell for your bitch ass in prison for the shit you've pulled. You will answer for selling intel. You will answer for Khashoggi. Where did all the state PPE orders that you had intercepted go? Did you sell it? Move it somewhere?

Enjoy looking so feminine in prison.

25. There is not a whiter shit than Jared. Here is your challenge, Jared:

Go beyond the experiment done by white journalist John Howard and published in his nonfiction book Black Like Me (1961).

Howard got a dermatologist to dye his skin such that he appeared to be an African American. Your challenge is to further than Howard -- if anyone demands your real name, give a false one. If anyone asks are you really black, swear that you are. Now, without your contacts and money, start businesses that raise you into the top 1% of America's wealthiest.

Don't forget to publish your journal -- we are all waiting.

The amount of Black support is small, but it's still hard to fathom. 85/15 is still a huge lead, but I'd have expected something like 95/5.

And no, it wasn’t just “beaten up at school.” The people beating Kushner would go to his house on weekends and holidays, and tip the butler to drag Jared out to the alley so they could beat him up there.

45. WTF? I'm a black woman and can I say, "WTAF?!" is this @$$hole talking about? So, because the

orange splat is a FAILURE at E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G., itz nonexistent policies haven't worked because "WE DON'T WANT TO BE SUCCESSFU"L? WHAT THE F&CK IS WRONG WITH THESE IDIOTS? If you look at where we started in this country, we are probably, per capita, the most successful because WE FUCKING SURVIVED the equivalent 500 YEARS of some of the worst attempts at genocide in modern human history! We have survived IN SPITE of systemic & institutional racism, legalised oppression, which served to keep us out of being able to live like other Americans, i.e., vote, go to businesses, live where we want to, get decent jobs, universities, go to decent schools, etc. Hell, jared isn't even successful at pretending to be a human being, a policy hack on ANYTHING substantive, including BUT certainly not limited to robbing the country blind, without people noticing, being a slumlord & a FAILED corporate realtor &/or developer let alone lecturing anyone about being siccessful. Thanks for "Ass-plaining" your failures.

In a very REAL way, WE BUILT JUST ABOUT FUCKING COUNTRY in the Americas through forced, unpaid labor & torture! It's EVERYONE else's fault because TRUMP, flew the country into the ground like a lawn dart -JUST LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE HE'S EVER TRIED HIS HAND AT, (ok, GALAXY CLASS CHAMP at Lying, cheating, perversion, racism, sexism, theft, fraud, embezzlement, etc, so I'll give him that.

FUN FACT: has anyone else noticed how often, when corporations want a product or service to be trusted, they use BLACK PEOPLE in their commercials? Think I'm making this out of whole cloth? Next time you get a chance to sit down & stare at the tv or streaming, do so with a piece of paper & something to write with. Try to time it so you're watching in the afternoon OR primetime. Mark every time you see a commercial that has black folks as the stars & if you have the time, note what the commercial is about. GUARANTEE you'll find that the
majority of commercials are anchored by brown skinned people with curly, kinky curly or kinky hair who look like me.

Does Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Qatar consider the "debts paid in full" in exchange for all the classified dirt he gave them? If so, then we know it was some juicy stuff, and Dems ought to investigate him for high treason.

If not, Jared may need to hide himself away from "Mr. Bone Saw".

purchase of 666 Park Ave. for $1.5Billion. He would have gone under otherwise. His father in law doesn't have the funds to help him out. He's got plenty of debt of his own.

Who is it that's helping bail out millions of Americans as they lose their homes, jobs and lives to Covid19? Not tRump, not the Republicans in Congress and certainly not Nepotism Kushner.
