George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, once again unloaded on President Donald Trump over his latest blunders on immigration policy.
Reacting to Trump's decision to fire Department of Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen, Conway promoted a tweet from MSNBC's David Gura, who pointed out that the United States now lacks leadership at both DHS and the Pentagon.
"In all seriousness, we have no competent, functioning president," Conway wrote in response.

Conway also promoted a tweet from journalist Julia Ioffe that pointed out the irony of Trump losing both his DHS chief and his defense secretary at a time when America is supposedly in the midst of a "national emergency."
"We don't really have a president," Conway wrote in response.

Conway also noted on Monday that Nielsen in her resignation letter only said that it was an honor to serve with the men and women of DHS -- but not to serve under President Trump. He pointed out that former Defense Secretary James Mattis pulled a similar trick in his own resignation letter when he wrote, "I have been privileged to serve as our country's 26th Secretary of Defense which has allowed me to serve alongside our men and women of the Department in defense of our citizens and our ideals."
