Jared Kushner, former senior adviser to President Trump, has recently undergone a surprising transformation with the debut of his new beard. Once known for his clean-shaven look, Kushner's facial hair journey has become a hot topic on social media.
The first public sighting of Kushner's beard occurred as he and Ivanka Trump left the celebrity hotspot Nobu in Miami. Little did they know, this would kickstart a wave of online commentary.
Ron Filipkowski, Editor-in-Chief at MeidasTouch.com, shared a picture of the couple on social media, humorously stating, 'I think Kushner is about maxed out now on his attempt to grow a beard.' The post went viral, accumulating over 561,000 views.
Social media users didn't hold back, with comments ranging from suggestions that Kushner glued shaving clippings to his face to humorous comparisons about the inability of a $2 billion investment to buy a full beard.
While online platforms saw mockery, comments on Ivanka Trump's Instagram showcased a different sentiment, with supporters praising the couple. However, this positive reception contrasted with renewed criticism regarding a $2 billion Saudi investment in Kushner's private equity fund.
Democratic Congressman Robert Garcia accused Kushner of a 'grift,' alleging improper quid pro quo. The House Oversight Committee's report, titled 'White House for Sale,' raised concerns over Trump's businesses receiving millions in foreign payments during his administration.
The report claimed that Trump 'repeatedly and willfully' violated the U.S. Constitution's foreign emoluments clause. This clause prohibits federal officials, including the president, from accepting money or gifts from foreign governments without permission from Congress>
The online reactions to Kushner's beard reveal a mix of humor, criticism, and support. Users playfully dissected the spotty beard, drawing connections to Kushner's financial dealings and reigniting discussions about the controversial $2 billion Saudi investment.
