Jared Kushner, it seems, has been having chats on WhatsApp with the Prince of Saudi Arabia. The comedian Hasan Minhaj called out to him to use these ties to get the release of women’s rights activist Loujain al-Hathloul. She is imprisoned in the Kingdom. Jared responded back! Know his answer here!
Hasan Minhaj and his call out to Jared Kushner
President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner was one of the guests at the Time Warner Center gala. The event was attended by VIP and other elite guests which included besides Jared, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, journalist Gayle King, journalist David Muir, actor Dwayne Johnson, singer Taylor Swift, Glenn Close, Emilia Clarke, and Brie Larson.
Jared had supposedly chatted with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman via WhatsApp. The comedian Hasan Minhaj spoke at the gala about Saudi activist Loujain al-Hathloul, who had fought to lift the women’s driving ban in the kingdom. But she is now in prison and the jail authorities are allegedly torturing her as well.
Hasan urged Jared to use his influence and get the woman activist released from prison. He said:
“I know there’s a lot of very powerful people here, and it would be crazy if there was a high-ranking official in the White House that could WhatsApp MBS and say, ‘Hey maybe you could help that person get out of prison because they don’t deserve it. But hey, that person would have to be in the room. It’s just a good comedy premise,”
As Haasan made this statement, everyone turned their heads and looked at Jared instantly since they knew at whom Hasan is hinting at. But the White House Senior Adviser, Jared who was just a few tables away from the speaker kept his composure at that time.
Jared has been under fire from the opposition and Democrats for using WhatsApp to communicate with Mohammad bin Salman. They consider this as a potential breach of the federal law.
Jared Kushner and his reply
Hasan had on an earlier occasion criticized Mohammad bin Salman. Hence in response, the Saudi Arabia authorities pulled his show out from Netflix in Saudi Arabia. Jared Kushner maintained his cool when Hasan called out to him in front of so many dignitaries at the Times’ 100 Gala. Hasan did not directly speak to Jared on this matter. But later Page Six decided to contact Jared and find out his reply to Hasan’s call out.
Jared replied that his main concern now was “advancing America’s interests in the region”. But he disclosed that he had spoken to Mohammad bin Salman about journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s murder and the treatment of al-Hathloul. Jared said:
“I will continue to put pressure on privately.”
When queried about action from Mohammad bin Salman, Jared quipped:
Jared Kushner and his earlier talk
Jared had said before that he is not going to dispute with Saudi Arabia about Jamal’s murder. He labeled it as a terrible tragedy. He had asked the Prince to be transparent with the results of the investigations and also hold accountability at the top. Jared was at the Time 100 Gala alone without his wife Ivanka who was at home in Washington DC with the children. At the Gala, Jared was otherwise cheerful and having an amicable conversation with Jimmy Fallon, Trevor Noah, Ronan, Mia Farrow and even Nancy Pelosi for that matter.
