The big news today is that Kellyanne Conway is leaving the White House. At the same time, her husband George is leaving the Lincoln Project. Both of them have said they are leaving to focus on their family, but the real issue is their 15 year old daughter Claudia, who is very much anti-Trump.
George and Kellyanne have been married for nearly 20 years, and their differing political positions have undoubtedly caused some issues in their marriage.
George Clooney is actually a very smart guy. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard, and later became editor of the Yale Law Review. He then went on to a successful legal career, and it was reported that he would be nominated to run the United States Department of Justice Civil Division.
Early in his life, he was a staunch conservative (at Yale, he was president of the school's Federalist Society) but "got religion" when James Comey was fired. He actually dated Laura Ingraham, who later introduced him to Kellyann, who he married in 2001.
On November 16, 2018, Conway stated that a reason he did not join the Trump Administration was because it is "like a shitshow in a dumpster fire". At about the same time, Conway organized a group called Checks and Balances. The group was composed of more than a dozen members of the conservative-libertarian Federalist Society, which had been instrumental in selecting candidates for the Trump administration to appoint to federal courts. The New York Times reported that the group was "urging their fellow conservatives to speak up about what they say are the Trump administration’s betrayals of bedrock legal norms".
Conway is a founding member and advisor of the Lincoln Project, a conservative Super PAC formed in December 2019 and dedicated to “Defeat President Trump and Trumpism at the ballot box”. ts detailed aim is "persuading enough disaffected conservatives, Republicans and Republican-leaning independents in swing states and districts to help ensure a victory in the Electoral College, and congressional majorities that don’t enable or abet Mr. Trump’s violations of the Constitution". The group released its first video on January 9, 2020; called "The MAGA Church"; it warns evangelicals to beware of false prophets. On August 23, 2020, he announced that he would be taking a leave from the Lincoln Project in order to devote more time to his family
