George Conway, husband to President Donald Trump’s adviser Kellyanne Conway, has compared Trump to Richard Nixon and urged Congress to remove the President from office. Conway, who has publicly disagreed with his wife for months, was just one of many critics calling for Trump’s removal.
“White House counsel John Dean famously told Nixon that there was a cancer within the presidency and that it was growing,” Conway wrote in a Washington Post column.
“What the Mueller report disturbingly shows, with crystal clarity, is that today there is a cancer in the presidency: President Donald J. Trump. Congress now bears the solemn constitutional duty to excise that cancer without delay.”
Conway, who describes himself on Twitter as a ‘Windmill cancer survivor’, in mocking reference to Trump’s attacks on wind energy, had a a busy day on the President’s favorite social media site. Conway sent dozens of re-tweets critical of Trump and highlighting aspects of Robert Mueller’s report.
“Page 38: ‘Christie said there was no way to make an investigation shorter, but a lot of ways to make it longer. The President asked Christie what he meant, and Christie told the President not to talk about the investigation even if he was frustrated at times,'” Conway wrote, quoting the report.
“Simple, excellent advice. Imagine if the Self-Defeating Narcissist-in-Chief had been capable of following this advice. There would have been no Volume II to this report. In fact, there would have been no Special Counsel.”
Conway will likely continue to criticize the President and call for his impeachment, while Kellyanne continues to defend Trump.
