Trump just made a mockery of the constitution. Says who? Says Kellyanne Conway's husband.
Oh to be a fly on the wall during the Conway family Thanksgiving dinner.
The strange dynamic between presidential advisor Kellyanne Conway and her Trump-bashing husband, George, continued Thursday when he co-authored an op-ed criticizing his wife’s boss in the New York Times.
Trump’s appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting U.S. attorney general after the forced resignation of Jeff Sessions “makes a mockery of our Constitution and our founders’ ideals,” George Conway and fellow lawyer Neal K. Katyal wrote.
The appointment is so significant because Whitaker, who has not been confirmed by the Senate, now immediately oversees special counsel Robert Mueller, whose investigation Trump desperately wants to end, the op-ed contends.
“It’s illegal. And it means that anything Mr. Whitaker does, or tries to do, in that position is invalid,” the lawyers wrote.
The op-ed is far from the first time George Conway has criticized Trump or publicly disagreed with his wife, a New Jersey native, about Trump. Their “house divided” marriage was profiled by The Washington Post in a story in which George Conway, a former Trump supporter, said he wished he never introduced his wife to the president.
And it seems unlikely to be the last time the couple simultaneously loves and hates Trump. Earlier Thursday, the same day the op-ed was published, Kellyanne Conway appeared on Fox News defending the president.
Not only is George Conway Kellyanne’s husband, he was almost named solicitor general way back when. https://t.co/kQdepyu3Ur
