One of the intriguing storylines to emerge during the Trump administration has been White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s devotion to her boss, while her husband George blasts Donald Trump on Twitter. However, they may both share the loathing expressed in the tweets, a Trump biographer explained on Tuesday.
Journalist Michael Wolff, whose 2018 book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House rocketed to the top of bestseller lists, released his new book, Siege: Trump under fire on Tuesday.
He was interviewed by MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, who read two passages from the book.
“Kellyanne Conway’s defense of the president’s lies had additionally seemed to bring her in a public confrontation with her husband, George Conway, a partner at the Wall Street firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, one of the wealthiest and most prestigious firms in the country,” Wolff wrote.
“The Conways public disagreement was, some acquaintances and colleagues believed, itself a lie, one in which the couple conspired to distance themselves from Trump’s lies. They are of one mind about Trump, said a friend of the couple’s. ‘They hate him,'” Wolff wrote.
“You talk about a Trump White House where — by the time you get to this passage of Kellyanne Conway and her husband actually sharing a feeling of hatred for Donald Trump, you’ve revealed all sorts of people working in the White House who have hatred for Donald Trump, including Don McGahn, most importantly possibly because he could be the most damaging witness against Donald Trump eventually,” O’Donnell noted.
“I’ve certainly never met anyone who has worked with Donald Trump or come in contact with Donald Trump on more than ‘X’ number of occasions who does not view him with incredulity and contempt,” Wolff noted.
George Conway has been quite harsh in his tweets on Trump.
In fact, earlier on Tuesday, Conway said Trump was “Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs” — with the hashtag #DerangedDonald.
Conway also tweeted the text of the 25th Amendment as a roadmap for GOP to remove Trump from office and praised Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) for being the first Republican to back impeachment.
Georgia’s other senator bought stock in personal protective equipment while receiving classified coronavirus briefings: report
Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) took explosive criticism following reports that she dumped retail stocks and purchased shares in companies selling medical gowns and telework software following classified briefings on coronavirus earlier in the year.

Justice Ginsburg sends out dire warning about the new Supreme Court ruling in Wisconsin election case
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg issued a disturbing dissent on Monday as the conservative majority of the U.S. Supreme Court intervened in Tuesday’s upcoming Wisconsin election with a move she warned could result in “massive disenfranchisement.”
The election, which includes the Democratic presidential primary, a Wisconsin Supreme Court race, and a raft of other local campaigns, has become embroiled in controversy as observers warn the coronavirus pandemic threatens the safety and integrity of the election. While Democratic Gov. Tony Evers has pushed to delay the election until June in light of the pandemic, the Republican-dominated legislature has refused to act, apparently believing the chaos caused by the crisis will depress turnout and benefit the GOP.
Boeing is no longer manufacturing airplanes after closing its last factory ‘until further notice’: report
Boeing announced Monday it is suspending production of its 787 Dreamliner aircraft "until further notice" due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on workers and suppliers.
Shuttering the South Carolina plant on Wednesday halts production at the last of the aviation giant's US commercial aircraft facilities.
Boeing, which employs more than 161,000 people, the vast majority in the United States, already suspended activity indefinitely at its factories in Washington state.
The company had been struggling with the grounding of its 737 MAX aircraft after two deadly crashes when the COVID-19 outbreak hit, halting most air travel worldwide and leading some airlines to cancel orders for new aircraft.
