#KushnerAtWar is a hashtag referring to a series of photographs of White House Senior Adviser and President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner visiting Iraq. The pictures depicting Kushner in a suit and bulletproof vest are generally accompanied by jokes about Kushner's wealth in juxtaposition to war.
On April 2nd, 2017, Jared Kushner landed in Iraq to meet with military officials regarding their fight against ISIS. Two days later, while visiting Qayyarh West Airfield in Iraq, Kushner was photographed wearing sunglasses and a bulletproof vest while wearing a blazer, button-up shirt, and khakis. Many online found the dichotomy between Kushner's physical appearance and his surroundings a reflection of his inexperience regarding military situations, despite being an adviser on such matters.
On April 6th, a backlash regarding Kushner's attire in the photographs started on Twitter. Users online found Kushner's dress inappropriate.
Two days later, journalist Louise Mensch tweeted a photograph from Kushner's meeting, requesting captions under the hashtag "#KushnerAtWar."
Throughout the day on April 8th, #KushnerAtWar trended as users posted photographs of Kushner's trip with captions that generally took a war-related film or book and inserted a reference to Kushner's wealth and privilege.
