Who are Jared and Ivanka and what do they want?
This week, Inside the Hive cohost Emily Jane Fox and Hive political correspondent Bess Levin parse the revelations in Jared Kushner’s upcoming memoir, Breaking History, which aims to settle scores, humanize two scions of real estate moguldom, and spin Kushner’s role in the Trump White House as a misunderstood and ultimately historic win.
From his courtship of Ivanka Trump (and Donald’s wish that she date quarterback Tom Brady), to that $2 billion investment Kushner received from the Saudis after Kushner soft-pedaled the grisly murder of a Washington Post journalist almost certainly killed by the Saudis, Kushner’s memoir, parts of which were revealed exclusively by Vanity Fair this week, is a peek into the delusional privilege. As Levin observes: “Did Jared ever hold a job that wasn’t given to him by his father or father-in-law?”
