White House eyeing Kellyanne Conway to be next communications director: report

Published

on

Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, who infamously coined the term “alternative facts” to describe the Trump White House’s messaging strategy, is reportedly being eyed as the next White House communications director.

The Daily Caller reports that “there is chatter within the White House that Kellyanne Conway is being looked at as the next communications director” to replace Anthony Scaramucci, who was ousted from the job a mere ten days after being hired.

Although Conway, who formerly served as Trump’s campaign manager last year, is a known commodity within the White House, she also faces significant credibility issues that might hurt her ability to serve as the administration’s official communications director.

The co-hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, for instance, said earlier this year that they refuse to allow Conway on their show due her record of making blatantly false statements in defense of President Donald Trump.

“So note to CNN — sorry, I love CNN — but you’ve got to stop putting Kellyanne on the air,” co-host Mika Brzezinski said back in May. “It’s politics porn. You’re just getting your little ratings crack, but it’s disgusting. There’s nothing that she brings to the table that’s honest.”

Trump ‘is not a very stable genius’: George Conway destroys the president for hyping harsh new book

Published

on

Prominent Republican attorney George Conway ridiculed President Donald Trump on Saturday over a new book that is rattling the White House.

The book, A Very Stable Genius: Donald J. Trump’s Testing of America, was written by Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post journalists Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig.

The book will be officially released on Tuesday, but it appears that Conway received an advance copy.

"So I’m reading a certain book. And ... oh my. I’ve never read anything like it. I’m almost at a loss for words. Almost," Conway tweeted. "Let’s just say, someone is not A Very Stable Genius."
