According to a recent report, even Donald Trump’s own son-in-law, Ivanka’s husband Jared Kushner, didn’t buy or believe in the now ex-president’s unhinged Bie Lie regarding mass fraud in the 2020 presidential election that Trump claims ultimately led to his brutal loss to Joe Biden.
The Daily Beast published a brutal report titled, These Two Lawyers Breathed Life Into Trump’s Big Lie, but Did They Even Believe It?, in which they take a deep dive into Jared Kushner’s thoughts surrounding his father-in-law’s election loss and subsequent Big Lie.
“In his final months in office, Trump was surrounded by lieutenants and sycophants willing to take his multi-pronged effort to its logical, menacing extremes. People of influence close to Trump who didn’t believe a word of it played along anyway, and often actively worked to support the outgoing president’s bogus claims. According to the knowledgeable sources, Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and senior White House aide, privately admitted that a lot of what Trump’s lawyers were pushing was a fraud and farce,” the report reads.
As it turns out, Ivanka’s husband was far from the only senior Trump advisor who did not buy into the election conspiracy theories Donald Trump was and continues to peddle.

And yet, they pretended not to be embarrassed, and publicly claimed ‘we are here to support’ Giuliani and his legal team, even as official campaign surrogates were freely admitting that Trump had lost, fair and square.”
His own people knew all along that Donald Trump was unhinged and incorrect. Yet no one said a word.
