PETA slams Jared Kushner as 'rich pest"' in billboard targeting "'rat infested' Baltimore apartments

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is taking their advocacy efforts right to the West Wing with their latest billboard campaign. The billboard calls White House advisor and real estate scion Jared Kushner — whose family owns more than a dozen apartment complexes in the area— a "rich pest." In the ad, Kushner is pictured laying atop a pile of cash next to a photo of a rat PETA dubs the "poor guy just trying to survive" holding a piece of cheese. The eyebrow-raising ad comes after Kushner's father-in-law, President Trump, called out longtime Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings in a series of social media rants about his leadership of his district, which includes Baltimore County. In it, Mr. Trump referred to Baltimore as a "rat and rodent-infested mess." — CBS News
