Kushner: Protesting NBA players are 'very fortunate' they have the 'luxury' of taking a 'night off'

Good God, Little Lord Fauntleroy. Read the room. What exactly are you trying to accomplish with this response? Way to seize the moment with your creepy little Lobster Boy claws.

HOST: “The other thing that happened overnight is that the NBA has now postponed games in large part as a result of a protest or a boycott by the players. This relates to the sort of larger Black Lives Matter issue. Does the White House support the players and the owners in this case?”

JARED KUSHNER: “Look, I think that the NBA players are very fortunate that they have the financial position where they’re able to take a night off from work without having to have the consequences to themselves financially, so they have that luxury, which is great. Look, I think with the NBA there is a lot of activism, and I think that they put a lot of slogans out. But I think what we need to do is turn that from slogans and signals to actual action that’s going to solve the problem.”

Actual action? Like sending brownshirts into the streets? Or … what, exactly?

Every time I look at Kushner I see a yeti turd Jenga tower j-u-s-t ready to topple. All they need to do is ask him the right questions and down he’ll go in a noxious heap of frat-boy scat.

Tone deaf doesn’t even begin to describe this. Imagine having the luxury of being able to “take a night off.” Or being able to do every job you’ve ever been assigned with unwavering incompetence while still somehow keeping your position. Must be nice.
