    My Head Is Spinning After Karlie Kloss Replied To Someone On Twitter About Jared Kushner And Ivanka Trump

    "Accepting the results of a legitimate democratic election is patriotic."

    So, yeah. A lot going on today.

    Trump supporters clash with police and security forces as they storm the US Capitol

    In the midst of Trump supporters charging the Capitol following the president launching an attempted coup, Karlie Kloss made the below statement on Twitter.

    Karlie, in case you forgot, is married to Joshua Kushner — the brother of Jared Kushner, who is Ivanka Trump's husband. That means Jared and Ivanka are Karlie's brother-in-law and sister-in-law.

    That's why it was extremely notable when she replied to a Twitter user who asked her if she'd discussed her beliefs with her "sister in law and brother [in] law" with this.

    This is not the first time Karlie's Kushner affiliation has come up. During last year's season of Project Runway, contestant Tyler Neasloney became a meme when he replied to criticism that his dress wasn't fit for Karlie (a judge on the show) to wear by firing back, "Not even to dinner with the Kushners?"

    “I cannot see Karlie wearing it anywhere, honestly.” “Not even to dinner with the Kushners?” #ProjectRunway

    Despite her familial connections, though, Karlie hasn't been shy about where her political beliefs stand. This past Election Day, she publicly revealed her vote for President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.

    Last year, she opened up about her relationship with Josh and alluded to how her political beliefs stand against her in-laws' reputations: "I really followed my heart on choosing to be with the person that I love, despite any complications that came with it," she said. "I knew for me, it was worth it to fight for that."

    In 2018, she also told Vogue that she and Josh "share a lot of the same liberal values that guide [their] lives and the things [they] stand for."

    So Karlie's claim isn't really a surprise — but, also, the fact that she chimed in at all is another head-spinning twist to a truly head-spinning day.
