Jared Kushner Reportedly Had To Search “How Do You Caucus” When Supporters Asked Him And Ivanka How To Caucus For Trump

611 points

According to an excerpt from one of the many tell-all books coming out against former President Donald Trump and his disastrous administration, obtained and published by The Daily Beast, Trump’s former advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner once searched “how do you caucus” when supporters of his father-in-law had asked him and his wife Ivanka Trump for campaign advice during the 2016 Iowa caucus.

The story of Kushner’s resounding lack of knowledge hails from Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender’s new tell-all book, Frankly, We Did With This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost.

Bender writes that supporters of the former president approached Kushner and his wife as they arrived at a hotel in Cedar Rapids, asking the couple for advice on how to caucus for Donald Trump.

According to the new book, Kushner and his wife Ivanka “traded blank stares,” noting that Ivanka had once recorded a how-to-caucus video for her father’s campaign, but had only read the instructions from a pre-written script.

Apparently, Ivanka turned to her husband and asked him what to do, only for Jared to reply, “I have no idea,” according to Bender’s new book.

Bender writes that “He pulled out his phone, opened a web browser, and typed out one letter at a time: H‐o‐w d‐o y‐o‐u c‐a‐u‐c‐u‐s?”

To make this matter all the more ridiculous and appalling, both Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner went on to serve as advisors in Donald Trump’s presidential administration.
