In an op-ed published Monday, the liberal columnist slammed the two saying they “epitomized the very entitled, elite class of Ivy-groomed, Davos-bound Americans that her father mocked” and accusing them of “sanctioning the savaging of their soon-to-be-former friends.”

Bruni goes on to mock what he says will likely be the couple’s pariah status in socially liberal cities like New York and Washington, D.C., adding that the couple is likely “accustomed to more glitz” than Kushner’s home state of New Jersey.

“I have suggestions. North Korea, for one. Ivanka has met its ruler and been to the Demilitarized Zone. She wouldn’t have to ask for directions. Saudi Arabia. Jared and Prince Mohammed bin Salman are spiritual twins, conjoined by their sense of superiority,” Bruni wrote. “Russia. Yes, Russia! It would be the poetic choice, bringing the Trump family’s presidential adventure full circle.”

Bruni goes on to argue that the couple would have little chance of arguing they acted as a moderating influence on the president in light of his refusal to concede the election to Biden.

“They can’t retroactively claim some profound but strangled ambivalence about his reign, not after her fangirl phantasmagoria at the Republican convention,” he wrote. “No, they have made their bed. Lucky for them, the sheets have a serious thread count.”
