Kushner Recalls McEnany Saying Trump May Be Better off Politically Due To COVID-19, Newly Surfaced Audio Reveals

Journalist Bob Woodward is sharing new audio revealing senior advisor to the president Jared Kushner recalling White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany saying to President Donald Trump that he may be better off politically amid the coronavirus pandemic.

In the audio obtained by CNN, Kushner is heard telling Woodward on May 8, “Look, I really do believe that he’s passed the competency test on the execution.”

He continued in recalling a conversation between Trump and McEnany in the Oval Office:

“I think that…Kayleigh actually said a great thing to him in the Oval Office. You know, he said, ‘Look, politically, do you think we were better off the other way, where things were humming or this way?’ And she said, ‘You know, in some ways, it’s better this way, because before people took for granted how great you were with the economy.'”

In response, CNN’s Anderson Cooper said, “I mean, wow,” noting that at that point of Kushner’s remarks more than 77,000 Americans had died from COVID-19.

Woodward then added, “That’s a Shakespearean tragedy unto itself. The idea that you would say let’s embrace disaster and then you can come back from that and people will appreciate you in some way they would not if we had not had this disaster.”

Watch the video below:

“I said, ‘Is that possible? Would the president ask that kind of question?'” Woodward said of Trump’s question to McEnany, later adding, “The answer is yes.”

  1. And Dear Leader is restarting his interest in forming his “media company” again. Can you imagine him doing a podcast every day? That’s way too much work. Can you imagine Dear Leader replacing Rush Limbaugh? Ugh! We’re in for a depressingly long time with the media waiting for just who Dear Leader will endorse (the favorite thing he likes to do) in future elections.

    Keep the barf bags nearby.

  2. General, Matt Gaetz, Jim Jordan, Louie Gohmert, Ted Cruz, AND DONALD TRUMP are celebrities paid by the taxpayers. We won’t get better politicians until the electorate starts voting for LAWMAKERS, NOT ENTERTAINMENT.

    To which K. MacAninny replied:

    “‘You know, in some ways, it’s better this way, because before people took for granted how great you were with the economy.’”

    In his campaign speeches and other statements, King Donald The Loser continued this narrative. Can you imagine a DIFFERENT president surviving this kind of egregious and callous unforced error? Nearly 240,000 Americans dead, on American soil, and His Majesty (and his mouthpiece) is trying to play that as a good thing.

    We MUST elect better politicians.

    And Matt Gaetz is a tool.
