Kellyanne Conway’s husband just brutally dunked on Trump’s intelligence

As next week’s midterms grow closer, a desperate Trump is going all out on his xenophobic rhetoric in the hopes of energizing bigots to head to the polls and stem what could be a disastrous election for the GOP.

He’s been incessantly railing against the migrant caravan and has even deployed an absurd number of soldiers to the border to further convince his base that they’re facing an “invasion” that only he can stem. On top of that, he claims he’s going to use an executive order to end birthright citizenship, this despite the fact that it’s enshrined in the 14th Amendment and thus impervious to his schemes.

Now, he’s doubling down on his laughable assertion that he has power over the Constitution by digging into the specific wording of the 14th Amendment. The New York Times reports that Trump called the provision a “crazy policy” and made the ridiculous claim that “illegal immigrants are not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States.”

The latter bit is particularly egregious given the fact that Trump has been brutally applying U.S. law to undocumented immigrants, deporting them and throwing them in concentration camps. If they weren’t under the jurisdiction of the American government, Trump would have no power to do such things.

George Conway, the husband of Trump’s counselor Kellyanne Conway, has taken to Twitter to slam the president’s comments, calling them “drivel.” He pointed out that Trump would not be able to arrest undocumented immigrants at all if he didn’t have jurisdiction over them. Conway bluntly added that Trump has “no comprehension of the words he’s using.”

Conway is absolutely correct but unfortunately it won’t matter to Trump supporters. They’ve demonstrated time and time again that they’ll happily lap up anything that spews from their glorious leader’s mouth even if it’s unconstitutional or in this case, nonsensical. The only way to stop this insanity is to head to the polls en masse and vote out every Republican on the ballot.
