“Because he and Ivanka are going to have to go back to the Upper East Side and go to the Hamptons,” Coulter explained in an interview with the Daily Beast published on Thursday.
“They’re probably worried that Trump will be removed within the next few years,” Coulter said. “They had just gone to the [Sen. John] McCain funeral, and [the op-ed] was right after Labor Day, so they were probably feeling wistful for the Hamptons. And the only way they can get back in is if they can say, ‘Don’t worry, we’re the ones who stopped the wall.’”
“I don’t particularly want to attack Jared, but, OK, there was ‘Fire Jim Comey, it’s a great idea.’ There was ‘Endorse Luther StrangeLuther Johnson StrangePress: For Trump endorsement: The more sordid, the better Pandemic proves importance of pharmaceutical innovation The Hill's Morning Report - Biden assails 'epidemic' of gun violence amid SC, Texas shootings MORE, it’ll be a great idea.’ There was ‘Let’s start with tax cuts, because that’s what Mitch McConnellAddison (Mitch) Mitchell McConnellSchumer vows to vote on Biden Supreme Court pick with 'all deliberate speed' It's time for 'Uncle Joe' to take off the gloves against Manchin and Sinema Democrats should ignore Senators Manchin and Sinema MORE wants.’ There was ‘Let’s hire Anthony ScaramucciAnthony ScaramucciFormer Trump officials plotting effort to blunt his impact on elections: report Grisham says former Trump officials meeting next week 'to try and stop him' Yarmuth slams Massie for gun-filled family Christmas photo MORE—he’s fantastic, Pops!’” Coulter added.
“And, on a larger point, there’s his prison reform, which you’d think would be a little embarrassing for a guy whose father spent time in prison,” the conservative commentator continued.
Kushner’s father, Charles Kushner, spent 14 months in prison from 2005 to 2006 after pleading guilty to tax evasion, election law violations and witness-tampering felonies.
Coulter also accused Jared Kushner of ruining Trump’s presidency and apparently offered a Kushner assassination fantasy scenario in her latest book, “Resistance Is Futile! How the Trump-Hating Left Lost Its Collective Mind.”
“If Trump realized that Jared Kushner was ruining his presidency and shot him, and then he fired the U.S. attorney investigating the crime, that would be a textbook case of obstruction of justice,” Coulter wrote in her book, according to the Daily Beast.

MORE for shooting Kushner—again: excellent example of obstruction of justice. … But Trump hasn’t shot Kushner, and he probably won’t, since he doesn’t even realize that Kushner is wrecking his presidency,” Coulter added.
