POLITICS 11/08/2018 01:39 pm ET Kellyanne Conway’s husband insists that Trump isn’t upholding the Constitution in an op-ed published in The New York Times. By Jenna Amatulli George Conway, the husband of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, lambasted President Donald Trump’s appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general as “unconstitutional” in a fiery op-ed in The New York Times. “President Trump’s installation of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general of the United States after forcing the resignation of Jeff Sessions is unconstitutional. It’s illegal. And it means that anything Mr. Whitaker does, or tries to do, in that position is invalid,” said Conway in a piece co-written by former acting U.S. Solicitor General Neal K. Katyal. On Wednesday, Trump announced Whitaker as his pick to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who resigned earlier that day at the president’s … [Read more...] about George Conway Slams Trump In Op-Ed: Attorney General Appointment Is ‘Unconstitutional’
The husband of White House senior counselor Kellyanne Conway struck back at President Donald Trump's rip of ex-President Barack Obama's "57 states" comment, rebuking Trump's ceaseless "witless prevarication" of all topics big and small. "Needless to say, there's a huge difference between an isolated slip of the tongue and ceaseless, shameless, and witless prevarication on virtually all topics, large and small," the conservative lawyer and ceaseless critic of President Trump tweeted Friday. George Conway's tweet was in response to President Trump's mocking of Obama mistakenly saying he had been to "57 states" in a country that has just 50 states – something he decried going underreported on by the "fake news media." "When President Obama said that he has been to '57 States,' very little mention in Fake News Media," Trump tweeted late Friday night. "Can you imagine if I said that . . . story of the year! @IngrahamAngle." George Conway has not held back on criticism of … [Read more...] about George Conway Rips Trump’s ‘Ceaseless, Witless Prevarication’
WASHINGTON -- Kellyanne Conway is in her living room, showing me an enormous painting of Audrey Hepburn wearing a peacock on her head, but her husband, George, really wants us to come into his office and look at a photograph of the moment everything changed. It's a picture he took on election night 2016: Donald Trump is reaching for the first draft of his acceptance speech, just as victory seemed imminent. Back then, George was such an ardent supporter of the president, and so proud of his wife for her historic role as campaign manager, that he wept for joy. "That photo was from before you cried," Kellyanne says"Now I cry for other reasons," George mutters.Kellyanne pretends to ignore that comment, something she's been doing a lot of lately."You gotta see this picture," George, 54, says. "You should like this, it's your boss.""He's not just my boss," Kellyanne, 51, says. "He's our president.""Yeah," George says, walking out of the room. "We'll see how long that lasts."Here at the … [Read more...] about She works for Trump. He can’t stand him. This is life for Kellyanne and George Conway.
Kyle Swenson, The Washington Post Published 6:40 am PDT, Wednesday, August 15, 2018 George Conway is at it again. A day after lighting up the internet with a not-so-subtle dig at President Donald Trump, the attorney and husband of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway jumped back into the online ring with another tweet on Tuesday morning. In his latest commentary, Conway amplified his criticism of the president, pointedly calling out Trump's most recent behavior. The latest Conway barb came after he shared a comment from The Washington Post's Philip Bump. Referencing the recent White House intrigue surrounding Omarosa Manigault Newman's book launch and the administration's effort to discredit the former staffer, Bump put the matter in the hypothetical terms of the business world. "How would the board of a company react if the CEO told them that he hadn't fired an unqualified employee who was disliked by coworkers because the employee constantly praised him?" the Post … [Read more...] about George Conway, husband of Kellyanne, tweets on Trump’s ‘false and misleading’ statements
Meagan Flynn, The Washington Post Published 6:46 am, Tuesday, June 12, 2018 On the morning of his 500th day in office, June 4, the president had a lot on his mind. Amid a string of tweets touting his greatest accomplishments and bemoaning the plight of farmers - who he said have been treated "unfairly" by Canada, China and Mexico - President Donald Trump turned his attention to special counsel Robert Mueller III's Russia investigation. "The appointment of the Special Councel is totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL!" Trump wrote. "Despite that, we play the game because I, unlike the Democrats, have done nothing wrong!" (The spelling was later corrected.) On Monday evening, George Conway, a conservative lawyer, published a 3,500-word essay in which he called Trump's tweet a "meritless legal position" rooted in an assumption from a conservative legal scholar that is "uncomplicatedly, flatly wrong." "The 'constitutional' arguments made against the special counsel ... have little more … [Read more...] about George Conway, lawyer and husband of Kellyanne, rebuts Trump on constitutionality of special counsel
