Over the weekend it was announced that Kellyanne Conway’s husband George Conway will not be taking a long rumored job within Donald Trump’s White House. That led to questions about what changed. But today George Conway himself provided something of an answer when he publicly called out Trump on Twitter, only to begin trying to walk it back hours later.

Here’s the tweet from George Conway that caused the ruckus:

The tweet was widely interpreted as George Conway calling out Donald Trump for being ineffective and wasting his time screwing around on Twitter. After the ensuing controversy, George returned to Twitter three hours later and began trying to backpedal: “Just to be clear, and in response to inquiries, I still VERY, VERY STRONGLY support POTUS, his Admin, policies, the executive order and of course, my wonderful wife. Which is why I said what I said this morning. Every sensible lawyer in WHCO and every political appointee at DOJ wd agree with me (as some have already told me). The pt cannot be stressed enough that tweets on legal matters seriously undermine Admin agenda and POTUS–and those who support him, as I do, need to reinforce that pt and not be shy about it.”

But even in his followup, George Conway acknowledged what everyone from Palmer Report to the ACLU had pointed out the evening before: Donald Trump’s tweets about his Muslim ban have likely harmed the already shaky legal ground on which it’s standing. Notably, Kellyanne Conway – who is almost never at a loss for words – has had nothing public to say about the back and forth as it’s played out today between her husband and her boss. But the incident does help us understand why George didn’t take the job. Follow Palmer Report on Facebook and Twitter. If you’re a regular reader, feel free to support Palmer Report
