Conway or the Highway?

How has Kellyanne stood it?  In addition to all the obloquy attendant Upon merely being a prominent woman expressing conservative views, her own husband, Gellubby George,  has constantly actively undermined her in social media and founded the despicable “Lincoln Project”. (That’s actually kinda an appropriate name, given the internal opposition Abe faced—and its a sub rosa signal ,a dog-whistle as they  would say, whistling up some Prog Maenad to assassinate Trump. )

Nor did she ever get any positive attention from the DemFems for being the first woman ever to run a successful presidential campaign.  (For that matter, I kept wishing Karl Rove would say sump’n, y’know, welcome her to the club, recognize her as a colleague, but..nuh -uh.)

The only good thing is that Georgy-Porgy is “stepping away” from politics, too. For Kellyanne’s  sake , I hope this means he’s sorry, and that they  sat down at the kitchen table and agreed to differ, maybe never to mention Trump  again in front of the  kids.

But speaking selfishly, I hope this means she’s going to divorce the chubby churl, And yes: take him for all he’s got.  I fail to see how anyone could forgive such a public and sustained betrayal by a spouse, such determined sabotage of her monumental life-work.  He is a dung-pate, pure’n’ simple.

I hope someone will write a hagiographic book about Kellyanne, detailing her heroine-ic struggles on two fronts, public and domestic.  BRAVA!

  1. The Left has made major promises to all who prior support. Every man to be a king!  History tells us that those who support Left ascension are paid in death.  Call it “downsizing government.”

    One word: Divorce. He is a traitor to his wife and I can’t imagine what that is doing to their children. She’s too good for drek.

    Agree!  I am just so pissed  at fatso on Kellyanne’s behalf.  He’s been like a bloated beetle sucking the life outta some beautiful, ethereal butterfly—and SHE, valiantly keepin’ on, so pale and slender she was nearly transparent, but showing up!  Doing her job, ignoring the repulsive predator lurking in her nest .  Yes DIVORCE that slug, just for the sheer FUN of it.

  3. SWMBO refuses to believe that George C. wanted a position in Trump’s DOJ or WH staff, and he turned full-blown Trump-hater when he didn’t get one. Kellyanne did not deserve such treatment from George.

  4. The video is enlightening.  Okay, she could withstand Georgy-Porgy, but not her kid.    I would take that ungrateful little twit on a camping trip and birch her.

  5. I am a Kellyanne fan.

    I do not wish for her marriage to fail.  I am glad to see the couple taking strong measures to save their union.

    And George is surely a quisling, on both counts.  But he is her husband and the father of the kids.  If the marriage can be saved it should be saved.

    Only if it’s worth saving. If my husband had done that to me he’d be OUTTA there.

  8. Marriage as an institution survives only if the spouses support one another. I could (and have) misbehaved egregiously and D will always defend me first and foremost regardless if I’m right or wrong.

  9. So much for the idea that it’s so great for little girl# to havE  successful female rôle models.  Evidently, that’s only a good thing if it’s somebody ELSE’s mom who’s “having it all”— if it’s your  own mom,it’s just “selfish“.  😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  10. Y’know, it occurs to me that in all the bios of famous successful women that I’ve ever read, there’s usually a judgmental tone, and often statements by their adult (to put it mildly!) children about what cold, absent, less than endlessly patient mothers they were—

    except one: Aimée Semple McPherson,*  the evangelist.  Even in their own old age her children remember her as affectionate, enchanting….in the 1920s-30s, she was one of the most famous women in the world, surely the most famous American woman. Yet her children remember the delights of their time with her, the promises she made and kept.  It is a testament to the power of faith in a life.

    It is awfully hard to be successful at home when you are successful at a very high professional level in a high-pressure position.   Few manage well, and the ones who do generally don’t get books written about them.   There are trade-offs.

    It is harder for women, in terms of later evaluation by grown children.  People expect Mom to be more like the typical American Mom.  They seem to make more allowances on the part of Dad if he achieves a great amount of professional success.   Unfair, but that is the way it appears to me.

    I wish them well.  I cannot imagine how tough it is to have your kids reading tabloid speculations about their famous parents’ disputes.

    I understand your point but this is the 21st century and self-absorbed kids need to simply get over themselves. Any daughter who writes negative posts about their own mother, especially one who is so impressive and accomplished as Kellyanne needs a good slap across the face.

    As my husband mentioned this evening, we feel blessed that we do not have to deal with this tiresome and invasive trend.

    Yes, believe me, it is totally devastating when your child accuses you.   I don’t think there’s anything  worse.

    Nothing is better than praise from those who know you the most.

    You get that a lot too with men. Prime example: Ron Jr. and President Reagan. The sentiment is dripping off of Ron Jr.

    I don’t think this has anything to do with self-absorption. Kids want their parents and there are instances where the kids feel like they have been overshadowed by their parents’ careers. I think it is a natural reaction to instances where the striving parent continuously misses events in the kid’s life that may seem trivial to the adult but are huge for the child.

    Now, this Conway thing is just an example of a late-teen needing her butt beat at younger age instead of being shuffled off to nannies and what have you.

    M’mmm-h’mmm…..and let me take this opportunity to say, again, what I have said many times before: this makes it all the more remarkable that Trump has the enthusiastic support of ALL of his adult children.  (I cannot wait To hear Tiffany’s speech!)   For that matter he even has the support of their mothers, his ex-wives!  DOES ANYBODY GET THAT THIS IS, LIKE, COMPLETELY UNHEARD OF!?!?  As you say, even the divine Reagan didnt have that.  Trump is a paterfamilias.
