Prominent conservative lawyer George Conway has been highly critical of his wife’s boss, President Donald Trump.
His latest comment came after Trump announced plan to end birthright citizenship in the United States.
Here’s a brief history of George Conway’s transformation from Trump supporter into one of his most visible and vocal critics on the right.
June 2, 2017: Conway turns down administration role
„I am profoundly grateful to the President and to the attorney general for selecting me to serve in the Department of Justice. I have reluctantly concluded, however, that, for me and my family, this is not the right time for me to leave the private sector and take on a new role in the federal government.“
Conway went on to clarify: „Kellyanne and I continue to support the President and his administration, and I look forward to doing so in whatever way I can from outside the government.“
The Washington Post reported that Conway considered the role, but was scared off by Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey and the aftermath that ensued.
June 5, 2017: Conway posts his first critical tweet
Shortly after turning down an administration position, Conway started to tweet critically of Trump.
In his first post, he questioned the usefulness of Trump’s tweets, mocking Trump’s signature sign-off „Sad!“
These tweets may make some ppl feel better, but they certainly won’t help OSG get 5 votes in SCOTUS, which is what actually matters. Sad. https://t.co/zVhcyfm8Hr
In a later tweet, Conway clarified that he still supported the president.
March 28, 2018: Conway gets more vocal on Twitter
In late March, after nearly a yearlong hiatus, Conway called Trump’s reported interest in pardons for former staff as a way to protect himself from the special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation „flabbergasting.“
This is flabbergasting. https://t.co/J0OnbQLXQu
Also at this time, Conway reportedly switched his party registration to „unaffiliated.“
