Citizens of the internet seems to think it’s just charming that senior White House adviser Jared Kushner has been voting as a woman for years.
Mr Kushner, in his voter registration forms filed in New York, appears to have accidentally checked off that he is a woman instead of a man in 2009, and the internet has been all too eager to poke fun at the clerical error from a man who works in a west wing that oozes masculinity.
The former real estate developer, and son-in-law of Donald Trump, joined the White House earlier this year, and has amassed quite the list of responsibilities. Mr Kushner is tasked with negotiating peace in the Middle East, fixing the opioid crisis, updating technology in the US government, developing criminal just reform policies, and with developing trade policy. In a less official capacity, he is known as a close confidant to Mr Trump who is able to set up meetings with the President, and deeply influence policy.
Some are concerned that he has such a large workload, since, as Wired, which first noted the registration put it: “the former real estate exec has demonstrated repeated difficulty filling out simple, routine forms correctly.”
Here’s what the internet had to say.
Some were pretty concerned that Mr Kushner has so much on his plate, since he can’t even fill out simple forms.

This person joked about allegations that the President is a sexist who doesn’t hire women to top positions.
Hope all you libtards saying Trump only hires men to top positions feel stupid after learning that Jared Kushner is a registered woman voter

This guy took the opportunity to joke about gender disparity in America.
As a result, his vote only counted 83% as much as it otherwise would’ve. https://t.co/TaY6Fka4Vb

So did this woman.
Jared Kushner can’t be a woman — he’s a CEO.
WH will now have to lower Kushner’s pay.
Kushner needs to smile more.

Others were supportive of whatever gender Mr Kushner feels comfortable identifying as.
Jared Kushner identifies as a woman to vote and I embrace his journey.

And, finally, some simply pointed out that making fun of Mr Kushner for registering to vote as a woman may be a bit insensitive.
“Heheh Jared Kushner voted as a woman.”
