TRUMP SON-IN-LAW JARED KUSHNER WRITES ABOUT THE DONALD TRUMP HE KNOWS: I freelance for The New York Observer, which Jared Kushner owns. I don’t know him and he doesn’t know me. But this is quite an essay.

Blunt lead:

My father-in-law is not an anti-Semite. It’s that simple, really. Donald Trump is not anti-Semitic and he’s not a racist. Despite the best efforts of his political opponents and a large swath of the media to hold Donald Trump accountable for the utterances of even the most fringe of his supporters—a standard to which no other candidate is ever held—the worst that his detractors can fairly say about him is that he has been careless in retweeting imagery that can be interpreted as offensive.

Kushner is responding to an essay written by an Observer staffer.
