READ: George Conway Tweets About Donald Trump’s Legal Troubles: ‘Individual-1 Needs a Real Lawyer’

He is on a roll.

George Conway, the husband of presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway, is at it again.

Despite being married to one of the president’s staunchest supporters––this is the same woman, by the way, who coined the term “alternative facts”––Conway has made it very clear that he is no fan of President Donald Trump’s, and he made this very clear with his most recent tweets.

Conway, at one point, quoted CNN legal analyst Renato Mariotti, who explained what the decision of federal prosecutors to grant immunity to Trump Organization CFO Alan Weisselberg means for the continuing investigation.

“It means that Individual-1 needs a real lawyer,” Conway quipped.

Conway also said––sarcastically––that Trump’s inclination to attack AG Jeff Sessions on Twitter but not acknowledge the issues he has with him when he sees Sessions in person, amounts to a “profile in courage.”

Conway also quoted Trump himself, saying that the nation would benefit from having a leader “capable of comprehending what it means to ‘take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.”

That last tweet, in particular, earned a response from CNN national security analyst Sam Vinograd who wondered what “kind of statement” the State Department would issue regarding “respect for the rule of law.”

Conway’s response was sobering.

This is far from the first time that Conway has posted material or commentary critical of the president, and people ate up his latest jabs at the president.

In the spring, he posted polling results indicating support for a challenge to Trump in 2020.

It all began when Haley Byrd, a reporter for The Weekly Standard, tweeted poll results highlighted in an article titled “How Conservatives Can Win Back Young Americans.” She highlighted the following statistic:

An incredible 82 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning voters between the ages of 18 and 24 say they “want another Republican to challenge President Trump for the party’s nomination in 2020.” So do 57 percent of those aged 25 to 34 and 58 percent of those aged 35 to 44. Compare that number with the 74 percent of Republicans over the age of 65 who oppose a primary challenge, and you’ve got a chasm the size of the Grand Canyon.

“The Trump divide here tells you everything you need to know about the current age dynamics of the Republican Party,” she wrote, noting that the poll found that 82 percent of GOP voters between 18 and 24 say the president should be challenged in the 2020 general election and that 74 percent of GOP voters aged 65 and older say otherwise.

Conway quote-tweeted Byrd’s message and added other age brackets.

“ages 25-34: 57% yes ages 35-44: 58% yes,” he wrote, suggesting that it’s more than just millennials who want the president out of office in 2020.

Later in the day, Conway tweeted a New York Times story criticizing Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani after Giuliani claimed that hush money payments were common at the firm he just resigned from, a statement he made in defense of ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, who this week pleaded guilty to eight criminal counts, including five charges of felony tax evasion, two counts of campaign finance violations, and one count of bank fraud. Cohen said that he made the payments at Trump’s behest to buy the silence of two women with whom Trump had had affairs and influence the election.
