George Conway goes off on Trump so that he doesn’t ‘end up screaming at’ Kellyanne

Published

on

Though the two men are now very public enemies, Donald Trump consulted with George Conway on sensitive legal matters as recently as 2017 — and even offered him a job in the Justice Department.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Conway described interactions he’d had with the president since he took office.

After Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale suggested Conway has lashed out at the president for turning him down for a job, he claimed that Parscale was mistaken.

Conway “opted against working at the Justice Department after Trump offered him a position heading the civil division because he watched Trump attack the department’s leaders and then fire James B. Comey, the FBI director, in early 2017,” the report noted.

He then recounted a conversation he had with the president at the wedding of Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin in July 2017 about the job in which Trump complimented him for not working for then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions and then ranted about the AG’s recusal.

“He said to me, I remember it clearly, you were smart not to work for that guy,” Conway said. “He is so weak.”

“I told him, I’d heard the recusal issue was pretty clear, that Sessions had to recuse himself,” he added. “He took great affront at that.”

In another anecdote that reportedly took place in spring of 2017, Conway described a call his wife, Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, arranged between himself, the president, his son-in-law and aide Jared Kushner and Vice President Mike Pence to discuss special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

“He wanted to know my opinions on a variety of lawyers who were being considered to be his outside counsel,” Conway said. “He asked me for my opinions on each of them.”

The report also noted that both Conways have complained about the other. In the interview, George Conway said he tweets so much about Trump so that he doesn’t “end up screaming” at his wife.

The Post also shared a scene described by two attendees at a party Kellyanne Conway attended at the British Embassy in which she complained at length about her husband, claiming she and Trump both think he’s jealous of her.

"The Confederate battle flag has all too often been co-opted by violent extremist and racist groups whose divisive beliefs have no place in our Corps," the Marines explained.

"Our history as a nation, and events like the violence in Charlottesville in 2017, highlight the divisiveness the use of the Confederate battle flag has had on our society," the continued. "The presents a threat to our core values, unit cohesion, security, and good order and discipline."

Trump is ‘a soulless man with a broken mind’: George Conway calls out his wife’s boss in scathing op-ed

Published

on

George Conway, the prominent Republican attorney married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, blasted his wife's boss in a new Washington Post op-ed published online on Friday evening.

"Until three brief months ago, President Trump never faced a serious crisis, at least one not of his own making. But now he has faced two, and is failing two, in short order: the covid-19 pandemic, with its concomitant economic devastation; and now social unrest, and rioting, stemming from the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody," Conway wrote. "Lacking in humanity, Trump has had no idea how to handle either one."
