Color me unsurprised. My only question is the timing. This should have happened seven years ago. Page Six:
D.C’s weirdest marriage is over.
Page Six hears that Kellyanne Conway, the longtime advisor to President Donald Trump, and George Conway, the longtime tormentor of President Trump, have decided to divorce after 22 years of marriage.
Beltway insiders tell us that they’ve both lawyered up and that the two sides are hashing out the details of the split.
During the 2016 elections, Kellyanne served first as a campaign advisor to candidate Trump and then as his campaign manager, while her husband co-founded the Lincoln Project with the express purpose of keeping Trump out of the White House. […]
In 2022, Vanity Fair wrote that, “One of the greatest mysteries of the 21st century is the marriage of Kellyanne Conway and her husband, George — specifically, if they hate each other as much as their public commentary would suggest, or if the whole thing is some kind of three-dimensional chess designed to further their own interests.”
I confess, I couldn’t do it. I used to put myself in George Conway’s shoes and ask myself, “what if I had a husband that was going on Fox News and spewing Trump propaganda?” I had no answer, other than I would leave.
Think about it. Kellyanne was Trump’s campaign manager, her husband was part of a group that was dedicated to keeping Trump out of the White House.
I can only conjecture that there was some issue of waiting until the kids were “x” age, or whatever. I have seen a lot of that, but never believed in it. In my experience, staying in a toxic marriage does not benefit the children. Dissolving a toxic marriage and both parties giving the kids quality time, is a horse of a different color.
My prediction for the night? This is going to be a hell of a movie someday, or at the very least a great subplot of a larger script about this era in our history.
