How fitting that Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, is leaving the White House at the end of this month.
Her husband, superlawyer George Conway, simultaneously announced yesterday that he has broken off his ties with the anti-Trump Lincoln Project.
The two have often clashed over their noticeably different views of Trump.
The couple, who have four children, few if any of whom have recently seen their parents at all, said they are doing this to strengthen their Family Ties (https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/23/politics/kellyanne-conway-george-conway-white-house-lincoln-project/index.html).
It was Kellyanne Conway who astutely told the Trump Campaign in late 2016 that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton had tubed her chances of succeeding President Obama by blatantly ignoring traditionally blue Wisconsin.
And Trump won the Dairy State, a matter of deep concern to the local and national Dems.
We’ve never been a fan of Kellyanne (could there be a hit song there?) but we admire George’s ability to push Donald’s button in a most effective way.
Now as to Kenosha, how ironic that Pence’s Charlotte crowd raucously chanted “Back the Blue,” meaning support for police officers, and then the same day, in Kenosha, in southern Wisconsin, police officers fired seven shots into a the back of a Black man, Jacob Blake, while his children were locked in the car.
Wayne LaPiere, the NRA’s biggest cheerleader, said that he heartily approves of the police action in Kenosha, and his thought was echoed by Attorney General William Barr.
