George Conway had been Republican all his life when Donald Trump stopped by. His wife Kellyanne naturally became a key member of Team Trump.
Trump was too much for Conway, however, and he went out of his way to get him out of office. That includes becoming a founding member of the Lincoln Project.
But at this point, Conway says, he doesn't have to work too hard to beat his former party. Thanks to their devotion to Trump, they are dismantling the party themselves.
Conway made the comments during an appearance with CNN's Jake Tapper. to discuss Josh Hawley's announcement to challenge the electoral college results. The host asked, “Couldn't this move by Josh Hawley force John Thune to vote against President Trump, thereby giving someone the opportunity to vote John Thune in a Republican elementary school if they run for re-election because it's now that anti there – fact, anti-truth basis of support among Trump supporters? "
"If that's true, then the success of the Republican Party is likely to consist in further dismantling it," Conway replied. "What we see here is an endless downward spiral of deception and unreality and righteous lies about the integrity of our democracy. And that is deeply dangerous. These people are trying to advance their own political careers at the expense of confidence in our democracy. "
