Attorney George Conway has made it very clear that while his wife Kellyanne Conway‘s job is to put the right spin on the Trump administration’s words and actions, he is under no such obligation. In a Monday morning tweet, Mr. Conway took President Donald Trump to task for his supposed inability to console grieving Americans in the wake of the deadly shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue over the weekend.
“This president will never offer comfort, compassion or empathy to a grieving nation,” Conway tweeted an excerpt of a Washington Post op-ed.”It’s not in him. When questioned after a tragedy, he will always be glib and inappropriate.”
“This president will never offer comfort, compassion or empathy to a grieving nation. It’s not in him. When questioned after a tragedy, he will always be glib and inappropriate. So I have a wild suggestion: Let’s stop asking him. His words are only salt in our wounds.” https://t.co/ULCCaNKa78

Conway included a link to that Washington Post column by author Patti Davis, which discussed President Trump’s behavior following what has been described as perhaps the deadliest attack against Jews in U.S. history.
The column references how after Trump delivered prepared remarks on Saturday mourning the tragedy, hours later he was cracking jokes at a Future Farmers of America convention. He quipped that he almost canceled the event because of a “bad hair day.” Davis contrasted Trump’s response to the tragedy with the sensitivity displayed after past events by Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.
Apparently Conway is beyond getting upset over the president’s ability to comfort the nation. His solution? Drop all expectations.
“So I have a wild suggestion: Let’s stop asking him,” the quote continued. “His words are only salt in our wounds.”
