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.

New York Times admits they ‘downplayed’ the rape allegation against Trump

Published

on

On Monday, The New York Times issued a mea culpa for the nature of their coverage of the allegation by advice columnist E. Jean Carroll that President Donald Trump raped her in a department store in the 1990s.

"After an article last week reported the advice columnist E. Jean Carroll's rape allegations against President Trump, some readers accused The Times of downplaying the story," wrote staff editor Laura Takenaga. "Many have written to ask us why we didn't give the allegations more attention on our website and in print ... Some questioned whether the lack of prominence showed too much deference to the president's denials, or whether it even suggested misogyny or an unwillingness to believe a victim's account."

Published

on

West Virginia state Sen. Mike Azinger penned an angry op-ed for the Parkersburg News and Sentinel, scorning the idea of LGBTQ acceptance and warning that it is a massive plot to indoctrinate people against Christian values.

"Tolerance, in the face of the violation of the commandments of God, is no virtue at all," said Azinger, a manager of a contracting firm with a master's degree in pastoral theology. He ripped into the local newspaper for covering an LGBTQ pride event the previous Saturday, thundering that, "Sexual deviancy is going mainstream."

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
