WASHINGTON — George T. Conway III, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, said the Republican Party has become “a personality cult” under President Trump and that he would “move to Australia” rather than vote for the president again.
“I don’t feel comfortable being a Republican anymore,” Conway said in an exclusive interview for the Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery” about his decision to drop his party registration earlier this year. “I think the Republican Party has become something of a personality cult.”
Asked if he thinks the president is fully stable, Conway responded: “No comment.” …
George Conway’s personal evolution is especially striking given that, on election night two years ago, he acknowledges he wept with joy and pride in his wife’s accomplishment in helping to engineer Trump’s upset victory over Hillary Clinton.
“Look, my wife did an amazing thing,” he said. “She basically got this guy elected. She steadied that boat. … He was in the crapper when she took that campaign over.” As for Trump himself, Conway said, “My view is, he was the lesser evil” compared with Clinton. Asked if he still felt that way, Conway hesitated. “I don’t know. I don’t know,” he said. “If faced with the choice again, I’d probably move to Australia.”
What Kellyanne and George See in Each Other?
Some of my readers have asked for comment on this ill-assorted marriage.
Until recently, George was a partner of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, the most profitable law firm in the United States. (Its web site now shows him as “of counsel” to the firm.) When Kellyanne looks down and gazes deeply into George’s eyes, she sees about $6 million a year.
As for George, before Kellyanne, he dated Laura Ingraham. He and Kellyanne were introduced by Ann Coulter.
Apparently, George has a sexual preference for dingbats.
