Conway’s husband suggests Trump regularly makes false and misleading statements

George Conway, the husband of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, is suggesting that President Trump regularly makes false and misleading statements.

After Trump said on Twitter that he only kept former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman in the administration “because she only said GREAT things about me,” Philip Bump, a writer at The Washington Post, shared a tweet asking how the board at a public company would react if its CEO were to tell them he opted not to terminate an unqualified employee “because the employee constantly praised him.”

“Interesting analogy,” Conway said in response to Bump’s tweet on Tuesday.

Trump is currently battling claims from Manigault Newman that he is a racist and that there is a tape in which the president can be heard saying the N-word during his time as the star of the “Apprentice.”

Earlier this week, Kellyanne Conway did not explicitly say she told Trump about the alleged tape but later seemed to imply otherwise, saying: “It was my job to tell the president every rumor, innuendo, fact, fiction.”

“I’ve worked alongside Donald Trump for two straight years,” she continued. “I’ve never heard him say anything about that, including about my husband, who has completely denied that he has used a racial epithet.”
