Trump Daily – 4/2/2020

  • Trump said in today’s press briefing that scarves generally work better than masks because they’re thicker. This is dangerously false. Scarves are extremely porous.

The rest of today’s piece focuses on Jared Kushner. Kushner has absolutely zero experience in any sort of medical work, much less overseeing and organizing large organizations dealing with a pandemic. Yet he is in charge of a significant portion of the US response.

  • Kushner’s covid-19 task force has been using private emails to conduct official business. Kushner has frequently used private emails as part of his job as well as encrypted messaging apps which both prevent oversight of his activities. Those concerned about Hillary Clinton doing the same are strangely unconcerned by this.
