Hillary Clinton and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez drag Jared Kushner for using private messaging app

On Thursday, we learned that White House adviser Jared Kushner has been using WhatsApp for conversations he’s had with foreign officials, a direct violation of security and government protocol, raising the question of why Kushner felt a need to use such a secretive program to conduct official government business.

During the 2016 campaign, President Donald Trump made a major issue of the way former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used a private email server, spawning seemingly endless memes online with the tag line, “But her emails!”

The irony of Kushner’s actions wasn’t lost on Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA), who told CNN’s Anderson Cooper:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez also saw Khanna on CNN and shared a clip of his comments on her Twitter feed, along with a new take on an old expression:

About an hour later, Clinton joined the conversation:

That led to an outpouring of levity on social media:

Here’s another expression for Jared: Lock him up!
