Threat? John Podesta says Jared Kushner ‘better start wearing his kevlar on his back’

John Podesta Russia

While commenting on a Washington Post hit piece on Jared Kushner, John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 presidential campaign, issued a tweet that many saw as a threat.

“Seems like those ‘unnamed sources peddling second-hand hearsay with rank speculation that continue to leak inaccurate information,’ came straight from 1600 Penn. Jared better start wearing his kevlar on his back,” he tweeted.

Normally, the Gateway Pundit’s Kristinn Taylor said, such a comment might be seen as a way to warn someone of being “backstabbed.”

However, Taylor added, “given the current climate of political violence, murder and mass shootings, some online are taking Podesta’s comment as something sinister in the wake of repeated violent attacks on Trump supporters, the unsolved murder of DNC worker Seth Rich, the mass shooting attack on GOP congressmen and the recent mass shootings in Las Vegas and Parkland, Florida.”

Here are just a few responses:

One can only imagine the outrage that would ensue if a Republican said this about a member of the previous president.

But, Taylor further noted, since Podesta “is a well connected Democrat who served in high ranking positions in the Bill Clinton and Barack Obama administrations, Podesta will likely be given a pass by the media for what at best is an incredibly bad choice of words in the current violent political climate.”
