Trump-in-law and Project Runway host Karlie Kloss has gone to great lengths not to draw attention to the fact that she’s married to Jared Kusher’s kid brother, Joshua. In fact, as far as we know, she’s only ever spoken publicly about it once, and that was only after a Project Runway contestant called her out for her association with the first family. (The contestant was then kicked off the show.)
This week, Kloss shared a pride message with her 5.7 followers on Twitter that said, “Stonewall started as a riot and the fight continues for LGBTQIA* rights daily across this world. As an ally, we must demand safe spaces and proper representation in every aspect of our lives.”

While some people appreciated her message, many still couldn’t seem to get over the fact that, despite claiming to be a Democrat and an LGBTQ ally, she still rubs elbows with the Trumps and has never taken any sort of public stand against the Trump administration’s assault on LGBTQ rights when she is in a unique position to do so.
I don’t know you, and I try not to judge, but find it a little lame that you would preach to the converted but not visibly to your in laws. Come on, grow a pair. Use your influence where it matters. We’re there already, we know what is right. This first family… not so much.

Tell your brother-in-law.

How much money have you donated?

Your husband gets his money from anti LGBTQ businesses. You are not an ally

You’re married to a Kushner. The property-tycoons that abuse the system by (and not limited to) slamming low-income black tenants with obscene legal charges and dirty renovictions that leave them in debt and inhumane housing situations. Shut the fuck up with your hypocrisy.

maybe take this up with the filthy family you married into? Stop pretending you’re not married to EVIL Jared’s bro. Sheesh…they’re in business together Karlie#TrumpCrimeFamilyForPrison

Nope. I will never call a member of the Trump family and ally.

You are no ally.

One person also noted that the woman in the photo from the article Kloss shared is wrongly identified as Black trans woman Muhlaysia Booker, who was murdered in 2019. The person in the photo is actually LGBTQ rights pioneer Marsha P. Johnson, who died in 1992.
The person is this picture is Marsha P. Johnson.

When asked by Andy Cohen about her association with the Trumps back in January, Kloss replied: “I’m sure I’m not the only person in this country who does not necessarily agree with their family on politics. I voted as a Democrat in 2016 and I plan to do the same in 2020.”
Queerty has reached out to Kloss for comment on her pride tweet. We will update this post if she responds.

She lives in NYC and worked in the fashion industry. There were probably 100 different people she knows that could have helped her with that Tweet.
I get she wants to play nice nice with her in laws. But Trump is trying to pass laws to strip away rights we already have, there is a history of racist issues with both Trump and Kushner real estate and her husband and his brother are in business together.
Karly, speak up or Project Runway may not want to continue the association.
Karlie Kloss has participated in public marches against Don the Con’s maladministration, including the Women’s March in NYC, I think, but she probably could be more outspoken. I get that she doesn’t want to damage her relationship with her husband, but her brother in law in directly linked to or responsible for a lot of the worst, failed crap in Don the Con’s administration. It might make for a very uncomfortable Thanksgiving gathering, but her brother and sister-in-law, and the monster they’re linked to, are actively destroying this country and this globe!
As vapid and useless as Ivanka.
Regarding her Twitter post, it consists of two separate pictures, from two separate sources. It was laziness on Karlie’s part. She could have easier found a picture of Mulaysia to accompany the headline from ABC’s Nightline. But, laziness and lack of research of social media posts are a hourly occurrence. I’ve gotten into the habit of researching some Facebook friends’ posts because they are too lazy to do so.
Whether Karlie is sincere and truthful, I don’t know. She could very well be like a former friend of mine. She said she was a feminist and liberal. But, actions speak louder than words. Daily she would find something wrong with what someone did. Her only reason was because the other person was not doing things her way. With friends like her, who needs conservatives and leaders from some fundamentalist religion?
