Karlie Kloss: My Head Is Spinning After Karlie Kloss Replied To Someone On Twitter About Jared Kushner And Ivanka Trump

Karlie Kloss: My Head Is Spinning After Karlie Kloss Replied To Someone On Twitter About Jared Kushner And Ivanka Trump


Loss, in case you forget, is married to Joshua Kushner — aka brother of Jared Kushner, who is Ivanka Trump's husband. Which means that Jared and Ivanka are Kloss' brother and sister-in-law.

As the entire nation grapples with the fact that the United States Capitol was stormed by a radical extremist mob stoked on by Donald Trump today, Karlie Kloss’ issues with the attempted coup are a little more personal than most others. As wife of Joshua Kushner, the Project Runway host is sister-in-law to Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. “Accepting the results of a legitimate democratic election is patriotic. Refusing to do so and inciting violence is anti-American,” Kloss tweeted Wednesday evening. In response, some followers have asked, her various forms, to “tell that to your in-laws.” One of them got a response from Kloss: “I’ve tried.”


Which is why it was extremely notable when she replied to a Twitter user who asked her if she'd discussed her beliefs with her "sister in law and brother [in] law" with this.

This is not the first time Kloss' Kushner affiliation has come up. During last year's season of Project Runway, contestant Tyler Neasloney became a meme when he replied to criticism that his dress wasn't fit for Kloss (a judge on the show) to wear by firing back, "Not even to dinner with the Kushners?"

Despite his family affiliations, Claus has no shame about where his political beliefs lie. On this day of the last election, he publicly revealed his vote for President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris.

“I’ve tried” isn’t the scathing rebuke the Trumps deserve, but we have to admit that thinking of Kloss having to sit across some of the Trumps at family events makes us not feel as bad about our awkward interactions with that one MAGA uncle or “Women for Trump” aunt.

Ivanka Trump actually did attempt to call for peace today, but it did not go without controversy: The eldest Trump daughter first tweeted, “American Patriots - any security breach or disrespect to our law enforcement is unacceptable. The violence must stop” but the tweet was taken down after it was pointed out Ivanka was calling the extremists “patriots.” She later clarified, “No. Peaceful protest is patriotic. Violence is unacceptable and must be condemned in the strongest terms.”

This is in contrast to statements made by Donald Trump, first a video telling the extremists “we love you, you’re very special” and then a tweet claiming “these are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long.”

Both those tweets were removed by Twitter, then the site decided to suspend his account for at least 12 hours. “Future violations of the Twitter Rules, including our Civic Integrity or Violent Threats policies, will result in permanent suspension of the @realDonaldTrump account,” the Twitter Safety account later explained.

Last year, she opened up about her relationship with Kushner and alluded to how her political beliefs stand against her in-laws' reputations: "I really followed my heart on choosing to be with the person that I love, despite any complications that came with it," she said. "I knew for me, it was worth it to fight for that."

In 2018, she also told Vogue that she and Josh "share a lot of the same liberal values that guide [their] lives and the things [they] stand for."

So Kloss' claim isn't really a surprise — but, also, the fact that she chimed in at all is another head-spinning twist to a truly head-spinning day.
