Jared Kushner is the worst. The same guy who was a “meh” student who got into Harvard thanks to his father’s money and only has a White House gig thanks to his father-in-law had the audacity to say Black people need to want success more.
While on FOX News, of course, Kushner implied that Black people just don’t want success enough. The questioned stemmed from his allegedly meeting with Ice Cube for a few hours—which is a testament to why the rapper is currently getting dragged for his decision to play in the sand with known scoundreal.
“There’s been a lot of discussion about the issues that were needed in the Black community for the last years, particularly it intensified after the George Floyd situation,” explained Kushner. “You saw a lot of people who were just virtue signaling, they’d go on Instagram and cry or they would put a slogan on their jersey or write something on a basketball court. And quite frankly, that was doing more to polarize the country than it was to bring people forward.”
Yes, that was a jab at NBA players. But there’s more.
The King of Nepotism added, “And again, one thing we’ve seen in a lot of the Black community, which is mostly Democrat, is that President Trump’s policies are the policies that can help people break out the problems that they’re complaining about… But he can’t want them to be successful more than they want to be successful.”
The guy even said the Trump campaign was getting a “groundswell of support from the Black community.”
Spoiler: He is not.
Also, we’re not kidding, his dad pledged $2.5 million to Harvard and boom, the otherwise mediocre kid was a Ivy league student.
Peep what Twitter thought of Kushner’s latest headass statements below.

2. A thread from a man who got into Harvard thanks to his own merits.
This how the 1% look at minorities. I was a classmate of Kushner let me tell you what I did to get into Harvard compared to what he did. Yes a thread. https://t.co/efjtTuhdbW— Ruben Gallego (@RubenGallego) October 26, 2020
This is the smug, arrogant, white supremacist, mindset that has oppressed and enslaved the Black community since Lincoln. It's disgusting. It's time to grab the scalpel and carve this racist cancer from the soul of America for good starting Nov 3.— Morgan J. Freeman (@mjfree) October 26, 2020
Oh, and fuck Jared Kushner. https://t.co/RhAdFgAv3D
Jared Kushner's explanation of "Black problems" is almost quaint. He is espousing what were mainstream GOP beliefs about race and African Americans until Obama got into office and a chunk of the party went full white nationalist #JaredKushner— Dr. Jason Johnson (@DrJasonJohnson) October 26, 2020
You cannot convince me that Damien from the Omen did not grow up to become Jared Kushner.— BrooklynDad_Defiant! (@mmpadellan) October 26, 2020
Born on third base, thinks he hit a triple. Few in US history have been given as much wealth or power without having to earn a thing as Jared Kushner. His father-in-law gave him the position he is failing at miserably, with deadly consequences. We will remember his casual racism. https://t.co/V8pZxFsfow— Rep.

Of this I am certain: The average Black person in this country puts in more work by noon than Jared Kushner puts in the whole damn day. https://t.co/exYSJZ6pAp— Hakeem Jefferson (@hakeemjefferson) October 26, 2020
Jared Kushner speaks as if Black people are lazy complainers who don't want to be successful. This blatant DISRESPECT shows he has NO understanding of the Black community and its challenges that have spanned centuries. You can't "fix" these problems from this level of ego. pic.twitter.com/fmILMVbrzY— Ben Crump (@AttorneyCrump) October 26, 2020
Never forget that Jared Kushner dumped a national testing plan early on in the pandemic because he thought COVID-19 was only affecting blue states. That’s genocide.— Andrea Junker ® (@Strandjunker) October 26, 2020
Kushner should be in prison right now.
To Jared Kushner, Black Americans' grappling with inequality, racism is 'complaining' https://t.co/26oeSn8Iek— Ali Velshi (@AliVelshi) October 26, 2020
