Shots fired!

The Lincoln Project, a super PAC of Republican operatives who have disavowed their own party to defeat Donald Trump, was co-founded by attorney George Conway — the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway. Attorneys for Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner threatened to sue The Lincoln Project for billboards in Times Square in Manhattan that have their faces featured across it. And really, it appears the two have never heard of the Streisand effect before.

Javanka’s attorneys penned a letter to The Lincoln Project to complain about one billboard that shows the president’s daughter smiling and gesturing next to figures showing over 33,000 New Yorkers and 221,000 Americans have died from COVID-19. The attorneys also noted a billboard featuring Jared Kushner next to body bags and a 2019 quote in which he said New Yorkers would “suffer.” And indeed, New Yorkers did suffer.


The Lincoln Project responded on Friday to say that the couple’s “level of indignant outrage” over the billboards is “comical.”

“Jared and Ivanka have always been entitled, out-of-touch bullies who have never given the slightest indication they have any regard for the American people,” the statement said.

“The billboards will stay up,” it continued. “We consider it important that in Times Square, the crossroads of the world, people are continuously reminded of the cruelty, audacity, and staggering lack of empathy the Trumps and the Kushners have displayed towards the American people.”

The couple may have official White House job titles — but apparently, they do not want any association with the Trump administration’s poor response to the COVID-19 pandemic that has taken over two hundred and twenty-four thousand American lives. Soon, anyone attached to the Trump family will be shunned from society. Thousands of Americans died needlessly due to this administration’s awful response to the coronavirus.
