Time magazine's latest cover featuring a weirdly poker faced Jared Kushner in a super super linear posture, looking pasty as hell, has given netizens something to laugh about in times when many are reeling under the escalating tensions between the US and Iran and dissatisfaction with the current President.
Kushner, Senior Advisor to the President, has a highly diverse role to play within the White House. He is in charge of "brokering peace" in the Middle East as time reported, and has other responsibilities like building Donald Trump's promised border wall. He is also in charge of Trump's upcoming 2020 re-election campaign.
Unfortunately, closeness to the POTUS makes Kushner as easy target for internet trolls and netizens in general who often imagine Kushner in a variety of memes and jokes. And with the Time cover, netizens were served material as if on a platter. As soon as the image was released on social media, the memes started pouring in.

I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, Jared Kushner looks like a sickly aristocratic man-child in a Merchant Ivory film who suddenly goes apeshit and kills someone with a croquet mallet because “FATHER SAID I COULD HAVE TWO BISCUITS!” pic.twitter.com/3BXVcKi9fP— Sara “Bo” Schaefer (@saraschaefer1) January 16, 2020
Kushner is married to Trump's daughter Ivanka who also serves as Senior Advisor to Trump since 2017.
