George Conway, the husband of Trump’s counselor Kellyanne Conway, has become a consistent critic of the administration, eschewing his wife’s sycophantic praise of the disastrous regime for blunt honesty. Yesterday, Conway wrote an Op-Ed attacking Trump’s decision to appoint the woefully unqualified Matt Whitaker to serve as acting attorney general after firing Jeff Sessions.
“President Trump’s installation of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general of the United States after forcing the resignation of Jeff Sessions is unconstitutional. It’s illegal. And it means that anything Mr. Whitaker does, or tries to do, in that position is invalid,” the piece reads. It was co-written by lawyer Neal Katyal.
Trump has drawn a lot of criticism of the decision outside of just Conway and Katyal’s Op-Ed, as many have interpreted the firing and appointment as him paving the way to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Today, reporters asked Trump about the piece penned by Conway and the president finally hit back. He referred to him as “Mr. Kellyanne Conway” which wouldn’t really be an insult coming from someone who believes men and women are equals, but given that Trump is a raging misogynist, the phrase rang with unabashed mockery when he used it.
“You mean Mr. Kellyanne Conway? He’s just trying to get publicity for himself. Why don’t you do this, why don’t you ask Kellyanne that question, all right? She might know him better than me,” said Trump.
This almost certainly won’t be the last time America hears from Conway, as he seems to be gradually growing more, not less, critical of the administration his wife has so cynically chosen to serve in. Kellyanne Conway would be wise to follow his example and ditch this failed administration before it collapses entirely.
