George Conway Calls For Congress to Remove Trump: ‘A Cancer in the Presidency’

As the Mueller report was still making waves through Washington on Thursday evening, George Conway ran an op-ed in the Washington Post, titled “Trump is a cancer on the presidency. Congress should remove him.”

Conway, who is married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, has been a frequent critic of the president and he certainly didn’t back off in his latest editorial. Conway called the Mueller report “damning” and wrote later that “presidential attempts to abuse power by putting personal interests above the nation’s can surely be impeachable.

Like some analysts, Conway believes that the Mueller report outlined possible obstruction; he writes that “page after page, act after act, Mueller’s report describes a relentless torrent of such obstructive activity by Trump.”

He closed his editorial by calling on Congress to remove Trump, writing, “What the Mueller report disturbingly shows, with crystal clarity, is that today there is a cancer in the presidency: President Donald J. Trump.”

“Congress now bears the solemn constitutional duty to excise that cancer without delay.”

The language about “a cancer in the presidency” is a reference to former White House counsel John Dean’s words to former President Richard Nixon:

“I think that there’s no doubt about the seriousness of the problem we’ve got. We have a cancer within — close to the presidency, that’s growing. It’s growing daily. It’s compounding. It grows geometrically now because it compounds itself.”

Trump and Conway have traded barbs for some time now, with Conway regularly criticizing the president on Twitter. In March, Trump accused him of being “jealous of his wife’s success.” In that same tweet, he called Conway a “stone cold LOSER & husband from hell.”

Then, in response, Kellyanne defended Trump in an interview with Politico. “You think he should just take that sitting down?” She said, adding, “the president is obviously defending me.”

So, Mr. Kellyanne is now a doctor who recognizes cancer? She should kick his butt to the curb.
