Donald Trump has just caused an insane amount of chaos in his administration by deciding to attack the spouse of one of his key team members.
Kellyanne Conway, senior counselor to Trump, has been lying her a*s off, humiliating herself, and defending Trump on a regular basis and the president decided to “thank” her by attacking her husband, George Conway. George, who is a conservative lawyer that regularly criticizes Trump on Twitter and through editorials, had just send the president off though another editorial in the New York Times. The gist of the whole thing was basically:
The husband of Trump’s senior adviser Kellyanne Conway outlines exactly why Trump technically can’t appoint him: Back in May, when Trump picked up on an article by a conservative law professor that argued the appointment of Robert Mueller was unconstitutional and ran with it, the argument was that Mueller had such broad authority that he should be considered a “principal officer” and therefore would require Senate confirmation.”
Trump was obviously very set off by this, and Trump decided to trash George in front of reporters earlier today. Trump said:
He’s trying to get publicity for himself. Why don’t you do this: why don’t you ask Kellyanne that question, alright? She might know him better than me. I really don’t know the guy.”
Kellyanne and her husband haven’t made any remarks on the president’s comments so far, but we’re sure it’s super tense in both the White House and Kellyanne’s home thanks to Trump’s comments.
Trump had actually considered giving George Conway a role in his administration, but the lawyer declined a spot in the unhinged president’s Department of Justice. Considering how much Kellyanne’s husband criticizes Trump on and off of social media, George declining the job makes perfect sense.
