During a discussion about the new book, “Kushner, Inc.,” Tapper and his panel discussed whether or not President Trump would ever kick his daughter and son-in-law to the curb and questioned how the couple has kept their gig while the White House faces frequent turnover.
“Of course they survived. I mean, cockroaches are going to survive a nuclear war,” Begala said.
The panel’s token Trump supporter, Dave Urban, shook his head in disgust upon hearing the derogatory remark.
Tapper quickly asked, “You’re not calling Ivanka and Jared cockroaches?”
Begala replied, “No, no I’m talking about a separate class of species.”
