Jared Kushner gave a rare interview this weekend to Axios, discussing topics as wide-ranging as the Trump administration’s Israeli-Palestinian peace plan, whether or not Trump is racist (LOL), refugees, and more. It was, to say the least, a shit show. (Slate has a nice round-up of the most cringeworthy answers.)
Needless to say, Twitter had fun.
1. Jared Kushner = haunted Victorian boy?

5. The *real* question:
why is nobody asking jared kushner the question everybody wants to know aka is he or is he not a little boy from approximately 1912 trapped in the body of a grownish man

6. Jared deflected a lot of answers by saying he wasn’t involved…
Axios: Was slavery bad?
Jared Kushner: I was not involved in that

Let's start a Jared Kushner inspired hashtag #iwasntinvolvedinthat. Me first: Godfather 3.

8. Loving that “Lori Loughlin” is now a verb.
After watching that interview; I’m 100% sure Jared Kushner “Lori Loughlin’ed” his way thru life.
That is one stupid person. Wow.

25. Okay, not a joke, but a perfect reminder of how terrible he is:
Jared Kushner, the grandson of refugees who fled to America to escape the Holocaust, defended Trump's decision to slash the number of refugees allowed into the U.S. in an interview with "Axios on HBO." https://t.co/5b57S7jNya
