Kellyanne Conway’s Husband Trashes Trump, Promotes the Russia Probe in String of Tweets

Attorney George Conway’s signature snark makes a return to social media

George Conway — the husband of presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway — spent Friday tweeting out criticism of President Trump.

The noted attorney at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz also retweeted news that the Department of Justice had handed down indictments to 12 Russians for their role in the hacking campaign to disrupt the 2016 presidential election.

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.

“What could possibly make them think that.”

Then, of course, there were the retweets — including a link to the full indictment handed down Friday by the Justice Department — and other related news.

A screengrab by Cheddar’s J.D. Durkin spells it out well.

Conway is a longtime critic of Donald Trump on Twitter and his persistent needling of the president has occasionally forced his wife to answer some uncomfortable questions.

During a CNN interview with Dana Bash in April, Kellyanne lashed out against the idea that she had anything to answer for, saying her husband was his own person and suggesting questions about him to her were sexist.

“iIt’s fascinating to me that CNN would go there. But it’s very good for the whole world to have just witnessed,” Conway snapped at Bash. “It’s now fair game what people’s — how people’s spouses and significant others may differ with them. I’m really surprised, but very, in some ways, relieved and gratified to see that.”
