George Conway went into depth in an interview about his views on the president and his wife Kellyanne’s role in the White House.
Kellyanne Conway is one of the president’s closest advisers.
George Conway, who has hit the headlines
Conway spoke about a few topics, including being considered for a position at the Justice Department as chief of the civil division, which would have included him fending off lawsuits for the Trump Administration, as well as life at home with wife Kellyanne despite their different political views.
“I don’t think she likes it,” Conway said of his wife and his constant public criticisms of the Trump administration. “But, I’ve told her, I don’t like the administration, so it’s even.”
George added while they have their differences, it could be compared to any other normal marital disagreements.
“If I had a nickel for everybody in Washington who disagrees with their spouse on something that happens in this town, I wouldn’t be on this podcast,” George Conway said on the podcast. “I’d be probably on a beach somewhere.”
He said typically they agree on “most things.”
Conway said he pulled out of being a contender for the Justice Department role because “the administration is like a s***show in a dumpster fire.”
“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 said on the podcast. “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.”
Despite that, Conway did applaud his wife Kellyanne’s “amazing” work and added he was proud of her role in helping Donald Trump become president throughout the campaign.
“She basically got this guy elected. She steadied that boat,” he said of his wife.
But, Trump has changed the country, he said. The Republican party under Trump, Conway said, has become “a personality cult” and it was so bad that he switched parties.
“I don’t feel comfortable being a Republican anymore,” he told Yahoo News, adding he would rather move to Australia than vote for Donald Trump again.
