George Conway on report Kelly said Trump wasn’t up for top job: ‘You don’t say’

George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, on Sunday knocked President Trump, responding to a report that outgoing White House chief of staff John Kelly said Trump wasn't up to the job of president.

"You don't say," Conway wrote in a tweet.

The New York Times, citing two former administration officials, reported Sunday that Kelly has often told aides that Trump is not up to the job of being president.

The report came on the same day in which the Los Angeles Times published an exclusive interview with Kelly, who is departing this week as chief of staff.

Kelly made a number of revelations in that interview, including telling the Times that the Trump administration has moved on from pushing for a wall to be built along the southern border.

"To be honest, it's not a wall," Kelly said.

"The president still says 'wall' - oftentimes frankly he'll say 'barrier' or 'fencing,' now he's tended toward steel slats," he added. "But we left a solid concrete wall early on in the administration, when we asked people what they needed and where they needed it."
