Kellyanne Conway drops Jared Kushner in new memoir

Kellyanne Conway didn’t have a bad word for former President Donald Trump in her new book, but she apparently had no qualms venting on her son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

According to the Washington Post, the former senior White House adviser reserved some of the harshest criticism in her memoir for Kushner, Ivanka Trump’s husband and senior adviser to Donald Trump.

Conway described Kushner as a “cunning and calculating” man who knew he was unlikely to be held accountable for his failures.

“There was no subject he considered beyond his expertise. Criminal justice reform. Peace in the Middle East. The southern and northern borders. Veterans and opioids. Big Tech and Small Business,” Conway wrote, according to the Post. “If any Martian attacks had fallen on the radar, he would gladly have added them to his ever-bulky portfolio. He allegedly made sure you knew he exiled the Martians to Uranus and insisted he didn’t care who was credited with it. He misinterpreted the Constitution on a crucial point, thinking that any power not granted to the federal government was reserved for him.”

According to Conway, her relationship with Kushner deteriorated, in part because he accused her of leaking to the media. She denied the charge.

Last year, Wall Street Journal White House reporter Michael Bender reported that Kushner and Conway had hated each other since the 2016 campaign and found ways to undermine each other while working together.

“They’re fighting over who loves me more,” Trump reportedly told Bender in 2017 when asked about the infighting.

Conway, the assistant who coined the term “alternative facts,” reports on her tenure in the White House in her upcoming book, “Here’s the Deal: A Memoir.” Kushner may have some notes on Conway in his own memoir, which will be out in August.
