Jared Kushner is not known as a talkative member of the Trump administration, but he had plenty to say on Wednesday night while toasting his brother-in-law Donald Trump Jr for the success of his new book.
After announcing that Don Jr’s new book reached number one on the New York Times bestseller list, the President’s son-in-law quipped: ‘For one day, and for one hour, we’ll say that they did some real news.’
Don Jr is in the midst of a promotional blitz touting his new book, Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us.
Kushner was seen alongside his smiling brother-in-law and Don Jr’s girlfriend, former Fox News co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle.
They appeared to be at a party held in someone’s apartment in the Washington, DC, area.

The video was posted to the Twitter feed belonging to Sebastian Gorka, a pro-Trump media commentator.
Gorka captioned the video by writing: ‘They’re going mad. But he did it!’
In his toast, Kushner praised Don Jr’s political activism.
‘I’ve seen him and his siblings travel the country and really fall in love with so many of the different things this country has...and the impact that he is having is incredible,’ Kushner said.
‘We are very proud of his book.’
Kushner even offered up a rare, tiny glimpse into his own personal mindset on his family’s move to the nation’s capital to take up posts as senior advisers to the President.
‘For Ivanka and myself, coming down to Washington - it’s been a unique experience,’ he said, referring to his wife, Ivanka Trump.

‘We joke that we don’t get paid for this job but having the friendship of all of you and getting the opportunity to meet all of you makes it an incredibly worthwhile experience.’
Kushner added: ‘So I just want to thank all of you for being here today and for celebrating this book, which is driving people crazy, which is Don’s specialty.’
Don Jr interjects: ‘Hence the title!’
Sean Spicer, the former White House Press Secretary, was also on hand to congratulate the President's eldest son.
Spicer's calendar has opened up since he was booted this week from Dancing With The Stars.
The Kushners weren’t the only family members who expressed pride in Don Jr’s new book.
Don Jr's father, the President, tweeted: ‘Wow! Was just told that my son’s book, “Triggered,” is Number One on The New York Times Bestseller List. Congratulations Don!’
Don Jr's younger brother, Eric, also chimed in. 'Great job,' he tweeted on Wednesday
