White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, while joined by his wife, First Lady Ivanka Trump, spoke during the opening of the new interim US embassy in Jerusalem. Kushner spoke of peace while nearly 60 Palestinians were being slaughtered, and 2,700 others were left injured just a few miles away during mass protests Monday along the Gaza border. Nothing says ‘peace’ like 58 dead people, including children.
While addressing Israeli officials, US Republican lawmakers and officials, Kushner said, “Jerusalem must remain a city that brings people of all faiths together,” Kushner then added praise for Israel’s human-rights record and values, saying they are “the same values that the US cherishes.”
Kushner had one of his father-in-law’s ‘both sides’ moments by blaming the protesters for their own deaths.
“As we have seen from the protests of the last month and even today, those provoking violence are part of the problem and not part of the solution,” he told the crowd as his wife Ivanka looked on.
The official White House transcript quietly omitted Kushner’s remarks.
This isn’t the first time the White House has edited a transcript.
After Donald Trump told a bipartisan immigration meeting in January that he would “like” to support a clean DACA bill, the White House removed the former reality show star’s comment from the recorded statement. According to Washington Post, a White House official defended the omission, calling it “unintentional” but true to the “context of the conversation.”
The 58 Palestinians were killed, include five children and a man in a wheelchair. You can’t omit that fact.
While Palestinians were dying, Ivanka Trump was seen unveiling engraved stonework carrying her father’s name on the wall at the embassy on Monday while she stood there with a smile on her face.
Javanka, at some point before or after the slaughter, was reportedly blessed by Israel’s Chief Rabbi, who once compared black people to “monkeys” and previously suggested that Israel should be free of non-Jews.
This administration doesn’t want you to believe what you heard with your own ears. That’s called gaslighting.
