Book: Kushner Compared Trump To The Cheshire Cat

The Hill reports:

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner told people that the book “Alice in Wonderland” can help them understand the Trump presidency, according to excerpts from Bob Woodward’s new book reported by The Washington Post on Wednesday.

In his forthcoming book, titled “Rage,” the Washington Post associate editor writes that Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law, advised people that one of the most important guiding texts to understand his presidency was the classic children’s novel.

Kushner singled out the Cheshire Cat who uses endurance and persistence, not direction, as his strategy, according to the paper. Kushner, who is quoted extensively in the book, said, “The most dangerous people around the president are overconfident idiots.”
