Jared Kushner Will Call Your Bluff

On Wednesday we heard the good news that the New York Observer was expecting its first ever profit this year. We gave some love to Jared Kushner and Elizabeth Spiers for making that possible, but an anonymous rival didn’t believe that the Observer was in the black.

In the anon’s own weird way, he challenged the validity of the Observer’s report by stating that he would “eat his own hat” if the paper was indeed profitable. When Kushner heard about this, he decided to call the challenger’s bluff. According to the New York Post, Kushner said that if the anon would identify himself and sign a non-disclosure agreement, he could look at the paper’s books himself.

Of course the rival declined. Lesson learned? Never play poker with Kushner.
