Jared Kushner’s ‘soulless’ White House memoir torn to pieces in brutal New York Times review

Along with a series of news stories, Jared Kushner’s new memoir was met with scathing reviews from the New York Times, which criticized the former White House adviser’s book as benign and lacking self-awareness. Donald Trump’s son-in-law and former adviser criticized White.

Times Book critic Dwight Garner described the memoir as downright superficial and self-serving in a strongly negative review of Breaking History published by HarperCollins last week.

Garner writes that Kushner almost completely ignored Ad Infinitum, to speak about his childish tinkering, breaking anarchy laws and norms while flirting with dictators, the widespread loss of America’s moral leadership.

Garner compared the tone to a college admissions essay in which “every drop of admiration was soaked with spotty clichés and resplendent with selective biographical background” and noted that the overall impression was off-putting and a bit disgusting.

The book is like a tour of the splendid 18th-century wooden house that has now burned to its foundation at the time that focuses entirely on it and rejoices, the two singed-bathtub gravel driveway and the ashes between the mailboxes. What’s left of, writes Garner.

Kushner’s allegiance to Trump remains absolute. Reading this book reminded me of seeing a cat licking a dog’s eye.

Garner writes because he never liked Trump’s premise and Kushner’s career in politics depended entirely on his marriage to Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter. What a restless book you have in your hand.

Once someone has happily worked with one of the most prominent and systematic and powerful liars in the history of this country, how can anyone be expected to believe what he said?”
