Like many of Donald Trump’s advisors, his son-in-law Jared Kushner has been completely useless. As an advisor to the president who doesn’t even have the proper security clearances to do his job, Kushner has tried to fade into the background and go into hiding as he, as well as many others, is being investigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. But thanks to a new report by the Pentagon, America will once again be reminded that Trump’s administration is filled with some very dangerous idiots.
Politico reported on a new internal evaluation by the Pentagon, in which officials have given Kushner’s healthcare plan program update for veterans a “devastating” appraisal. Some doctors are even saying that if something isn’t done soon, more Americans will die. The report, which outlined 156 “critical” or “severe” incident reports, said:
The first stage of a multibillion-dollar military-VA digital health program championed by Jared Kushner has been riddled with problems. Traditionally, if you have more than five [incident reports] at that high a level, the program has significant issues.”
Holy sh*t, that’s gotta be embarrassing for the entire Trump administration! The report states that Cerner Corp., which is the company that will be hosting the military’s digital medical records under Kushner’s update to the veteran’s healthcare program, might have their contract delayed. The Pentagon report stated that MHS Genesis, the new software system being used by Cerner, was “neither operationally effective, nor operationally suitable” and suggested that the rollout should be indefinitely put on hold until it was fixed. The Pentagon also disclosed “two indications that MHS Genesis may not be scalable,” raising doubts that it has the capability to support the entire military health system, which consists of 650 hospitals and clinics serving 9.6 million troops.
As Kushner has come under fire for these major flaws (and the fact that he has zero experience in government contracting or any of his advisory duties), the White House has continued to defend Trump’s son-in-law – and it’s not very comforting. A White House spokesperson said that Kushner was not involved in the Department of Defense’s contract with Cerner but gave the contract a green light anyway because there was an existing relationship. The spokesperson said:
He still believes that the decision to move the VA to Cerner was the right one.”
