Well, this ought to liven up the conversation at the Conways’ dinner table at Thanksgiving this year.
George Conway, the wife of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, took his criticism of the Trump administration to a new level during an interview with Yahoo! News’ Skullduggery podcast, likening it to “a s—storm in a dumpster fire.”
Conway, an attorney, explained to Skullduggery why he passed on a potential position with the Justice Department early on in the Trump administration, saying that he came to question Trump’s relationship with the Justice Department while considering the job.
“I’m filling out the financial forms and it’s like — I forget what time of year it was, it was like late April — man, I’m thinking. I’m watching this thing, and it’s like the administration is like a s—show in a dumpster fire. And I’m like, ‘I don’t want to do that. I don’t know.'”
Conway’s initial misgivings apparently grew as events unfolded in the Trump administration.
“”And then you got the Comey firing, and then you got [Trump] going on TV saying, ‘I had Russia on my mind,’ and it’s like, ‘Oh, no,'” Conway continued. “And then I’m driving home one day from New York, and it’s like ‘Robert Mueller appointed special counsel,’ and then I realized, this guy is going to be at war with the Justice Department.”
Conway has hardly been silent about his thoughts on the Trump administration in the past. In July, he took a particularly pointed shot at Trump.
When MSNBC producer Kyle Griffin tweeted out a Politico story asserting that “European leaders do not think Trump is a stable genius,” Conway offered his own jab in a quote tweet, writing, “What could possibly make them think that.”
