Kellyanne Conway’s New Memoir Rips Fauci, Kushner, and Husband George While Praising Trump – Opinion

Kellyanne Conway, former senior advisor to then-president Donald Trump, will release a new book Tuesday called “Here’s the Deal.” In the nearly 500-page tome, she touches on a range of issues from Jared Kushner’s bloated ego to her opinion that Dr. Anthony Fauci was “slow” to respond to the COVID crisis. Also, she shares her thoughts about her strange marriage.

The Washington Post received an advanced copy of the book.

As an aside, I always laugh when newspapers say they “obtained” an advance copy. Imagine a man in a fedora, waiting to be handed a book by a mysterious figure. Publishers are known to give advance copies of their books to media in order to gain publicity.

But I digress. Let’s get to the good stuff. We’ll start first with Conway’s thoughts on St. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and Chief Medical Advisor to the current President. As we mentioned she called him “slow” in responding to the virus, but she also nails him good on mask hypocrisy:

No masks was standard fare in the White House Situation Room, where Dr. Fauci was more likely to wear ‘Dr. Fauci’ socks than a mask. Then, like magic, when D. Myles Cullen, the vice president’s photographer, came into the room, masks would suddenly appear.

Why does Fauci’s hypocritical behavior not surprise me? It’s that kind of duplicity that made so many people lose faith in our government’s COVID responses.

Conway, despite being harsh on Tony, is not a fan of Donald Trump. This contrasts with many former presidential advisors who spend millions writing about Trump’s behavior.

“Donald Trump had elevated and empowered me to the top of his campaign, helping me crack glass ceilings that had never even been dinged before,” she writes, adding that “angry feminists” should “have at least once in their lives a ‘girl boss’ as generous, respectful, engaging, and empowering as Donald Trump was to me and my other female colleagues.”

Her kind words for Trump do not extend to Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and former adviser. She focuses on Trump’s enormous sense of self-importance.

“There was no subject he considered beyond his expertise. Reform of criminal justice. Peace in the Middle East. They have both northern and southern borders. Veteran and opioids. Big Tech and small business,” she writes. “If Martian attacks had come across the radar, he would have happily added them to his ever-bulging portfolio. He’d have made sure you knew he’d exiled the Martians to Uranus and insisted he did not care who got credit for it. One crucial aspect of the Constitution was misunderstood by him. He believed that the federal government had all the power. He.”

Oof, that’s gonna leave a mark. Conway also delved into the question that is still a mystery for those who follow it closely: How she stayed married that evil little creature George Conway. Conway was a never-Trumper, and a member of the race-baiting Lincoln Project. As George’s criticism grew more pronounced during Trump’s term, Conway felt the pressure:

George and me had finally gotten serious. This was the first time I’d ever considered the possibility of George stomping on my shoulder.

Kellyanne, it’s possible. She goes on to describe how she felt like George was having an affair—just with Twitter, not another woman. This love story seems to continue on today.

The marriage may not have the turbulence of Johnny Depp’s and Amber Heard’s, but boy, it sure is weird. I don’t think my marriage would too last long if my wife spent her days viciously criticizing my boss.

The book ends on a note that’s happy for the country, but maybe not so much for Georgie. “Democracy will survive. America will survive,” she writes. “George and I may not survive.”

You just received your walking papers pal.
