Kellyanne Conway has reached her limit and is cutting the fat in her life and divorcing her husband of 22 years, George Conway, according to reports.
Tensions had been mounting between Kellyanne Conway, the longtime advisor to President Donald Trump, and George Conway, the longtime tormentor of President Trump.
Kellyanne Conway has previously cited her husband’s public anti-Trump statements, while she was working with the president, as a key factor in the breakdown of their marriage.
“Beltway insiders tell us that they’ve both lawyered up and that the two sides are hashing out the details of the split,” according to Page Six.

Conway said about her marriage earlier:
“What was shocking about that tweet looking back it came shortly after George took his name out of contention for Justice, Civil Division with a statement that read: ‘I called the President to take my name out. I sent him full support, it’s great working in the administration, and of course my wonderful wife.’
“And five days later, he tweeted it. So it was all very confusing.
“That’s why I said, ‘Well, he doesn’t tweet. And he wouldn’t say that.’
“He wasn’t being consistent with his own actions.
“What is very galling … I think it was like the summer of 2018 he was telling the Michael Isikoff ‘Skullduggery’ podcast, ‘Oh, I knew that this administration was a s–tshow and a dumpster fire by April of that year.’
“And I was like, ‘Really? Because then you came to Easter, then you came to Halloween, then you came to a very intimate dinner with the Kushners.’
“I didn’t make vows of fidelity to Donald Trump, and I don’t expect George to make vows of fidelity to Donald Trump; but to ‘love, honor, and cherish’ means exactly that.
“And that’s where I felt like he was violating our marriage vows.
“I had a job he supported.
“The betrayal was him being so public about it: ‘I can cash you in for attention.’
“I like to say, I lost my husband to Twitter, and she’s not even hot, has no personality.
“George and I … always took our marriage vows very seriously.
“We are faithful in our marriage.
“I think it’s a 21st-century problem, in that the competition for my husband’s affection and attention wasn’t another woman, it was a whole platform.
“The kids are great.
“Their father and I just go back and forth between houses so somebody’s always there with them.
“We’re doing that so that they can be in the schools where they want to be.
“The oldest children wanted to finish their academic careers where they started.
“And I can’t be that mom who says to my kids, ‘Be your own person, chart your own path,’ and then tell them where they need to live, and what they need to do.
“I tell their father, ‘It’s not like we’re driving kids to chemotherapy, we’re not to complain. We can do this.’
“I think my kids have more discretion and judgment and resilience and self-possession than the adults [in the media] who were … trying to treat my children like they were already adults,” she said.
