Karlie Kloss's Dad Is Helping Jared Kushner Crowdsource Coronavirus Tips
Kurt Kloss, a doctor, reportedly appealed to other physicians for help.
Spectator reports that Kurt Kloss, a doctor, asked a Facebook group of fellow physicians to give advice on combatting the coronavirus outbreak this week, writing, "I have direct channel to person now in charge at White House." After hundreds of doctors responded, Kloss reportedly told them Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, had asked him for recommendations.
“Tonight I was asked by Jared through my son-in-law for my recommendations, that’s when I turned to you my fellow BAFERD’s for help,” he wrote, referencing a nickname for Bad A—s F—king Emergency Room Doctors. “Between patients tonight I have reviewed your responses and will summarize what I am sending to Jared for your PEER review before I send it.”
He later added, "Jared is reading now."

Kloss's daughter Karlie is married to Kushner's bother, Joshua. Jared is married to Trump's daughter, Ivanka. Kloss has discussed how her political views contrast those of her husband's family, telling British Vogue last July that although "it's been hard" being connected to the White House through her marriage, “I choose to focus on the values that I share with my husband and those are the same liberal values that I was raised with and that have guided me throughout my life."
Either way, if anything were to bring us all together — political divide or not — hopefully it's the fight against a global pandemic.
