Conservative political pundit and author Anne Coulter believe she knows who wrote the controversial New York Times Op-Ed, and in her opinion, it’s President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.
Coulter believes that Kushner, along with first daughter Ivanka Trump-Kushner are planning their retreat from Washington, and need something to fall back on among New York elites. She believes that Kushner’s claim to fame could be writing this piece.
“Because he and Ivanka are going to have to go back to the Upper East Side and go to the Hamptons,” Coulter told the Daily Beast.
“They’re probably worried that Trump will be removed within the next few years. They had just gone to the McCain funeral, and [the Op-Ed] was right after Labor Day, so they were probably feeling wistful for the Hamptons. And the only way they can get back in is if they can say, ‘Don’t worry, we’re the ones who stopped the wall.’”
Coulter did have some good things to say about Kushner though, saying that she thinks he has been the inspiration for some of Trump’s greatest hits.
“I don’t particularly want to attack Jared, but, OK, there was ‘Fire Jim Comey, it’s a great idea.’ There was ‘Endorse Luther Strange, it’ll be a great idea.’ There was ‘Let’s start with tax cuts, because that’s what Mitch McConnell wants.’ There was ‘Let’s hire Anthony Scaramucci — he’s fantastic, Pops!’
“And, on a larger point, there’s his prison reform, which you’d think would be a little embarrassing for a guy whose father spent time in prison,” Coulter said, referencing Kushner’s dad, Charles Kushner, who served 14 months in the federal prison, after pleading guilty to tax evasion, election law violations, and witness-tampering felonies.
According to the Daily Mail, first son, Donald Trump Jr, doesn’t think it’s anyone in his family.
“I think there are people in there that he can trust, it’s just – it’s a much smaller group than I would like it to be,” he told ABC News in an interview that aired Tuesday on “Good Morning America.”
“I’m talking outside family. That goes without saying,” Trump Jr. said.
