Internet Goes Wild Over This Video of a Very Awkward Jared Kushner Trying to Enter a Building


Jared Kushner, presidential son-in-law and senior Trump adviser, floats up the steps outside the Office of the United States Trade Representative.

“Do you have any idea who wrote the op-ed?” a reporter shouts.

Kushner, on his way to NAFTA negotiations, tries to open the door. It’s locked. He’s locked out. He rings the bell as a well-coifed Secret Service agent scans the crowd.

Kushner waits. “How is it going with Canada?” another reporter asks. “Progress tonight? Cracking the champagne maybe?” Kushner tries for the doorknob again but is thwarted. He looks back at the assembled reporters with a weird mouth smile. He rings the bell again and takes out his phone.

“As for the op-ed how concerned are you by that?” a reporter asks.

Kushner makes a phone call for help. This continues for several more painful minutes before Kushner is finally granted access to the building.

The sighting of Kushner, one of the most private senior White House officials, in such a compromising position sent the internet into a frenzy. The VEEP final credits were naturally applied to the clip:

And here Jared is with “Mad World” by Gary Jules:
