The LATimes email thingie informs us:
Kellyanne Conway, one of Trump’s most influential and longest-serving advisors, is expected to speak at the convention but announced Sunday that she would be leaving the White House at the end of the month to focus on her children. Her husband, George Conway, also announced that he was taking a leave of absence from Twitter and the anti-Trump group the Lincoln Project.
Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) adds this gracenote:
“The Conways had spent years engaged in a public feud over Trump: Kellyanne Conway defended him on regular TV appearances, and George Conway skewered him on Twitter and in op-eds. But their public fighting took its toll on the couple’s four children, including 15-year-old Claudia.
Lord Damp Nut also released yesterday the speakers for the RNC, or whatever we are calling it now that the RNC doesn’t have a platform and only exists for The Donald, and The Honorable Kellyanne was listed as a speaker. Imma guess there’s gonna be a Magic Sharpie strikethrough. But I digest….
In probably not unrelated news, Claudia Conway:
I don’t know their family dynamics, but I’m gonna guess that Claudia won this negotiation.
Any guesses who is going to step into Kellyanne’s pumps to be the new Mildred Gellars? Maybe Junior Mints’s emotional support cougar can pick up another paying gig for a few months?
