As the Trump White House falters in its efforts to “make America great again,” the “alt-right” has started its blame game – and Jared Kushner’s West Wing role has started to fuel conspiracy theories. The alt-right is the label for contemporary white supremacists and nationalists, and fellow travelers who like to play online with those ideas and themes.
“What the hell is Jared Kushner doing talking to a guy who has a dead intern in his office and is an absolute scumbag?” Jones asked about the White House senior adviser, after longtime Donald Trump friend told the “InfoWars” host that Kushner was feeding negative stories about Steve Bannon to MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, a former Republican congressman.
Jones has falsely accused Scarborough of murdering an intern and being a secret Democratic operative. His has also accused ex-First Lady Michelle Obama of having murdered comedian Joan Rivers and claimed that the Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax.
Stone, a former Richard Nixon hatchet-man, has alleged that President Trump’s agenda has been sabotaged by the “establishment” in the White House – including Kushner and chief of staff Reince Priebus. While the internal politics of the White House are hard to discern, Bannon has offered warm words for Kushner in the past, telling The New York Times, “For a guy who was a progressive, he really gets this grassroots populist movement in a huge way.”
