KELLYANNE CONWAY TO LEAVE WHITE HOUSE JOB

Conway, 53, has been at Trump's side since day one, managing his 2016 campaign that catapulted the reality TV star into the world's most powerful office.


But the past four years of singular loyalty to Trump, including defending him on TV and with informal "gaggles" with the press, have taken a toll on the combative spin doctor who coined the phrase "alternative facts." While she made a name for herself as one of Trump's sharpest defenders, her husband, prominent Washington lawyer George Conway, is a strident critic of the president, repeatedly and loudly questioning his mental fitness for office. George Conway has tagged Trump as “evil” while their young daughter threatened to sue her own mother for working for the “racist” Trump in stories carried by New York Times, Reuters, the Associated Press (AP) and Raw Story.


"I will be transitioning from the White House at the end of this month," she said in a statement. "George is also making changes. We disagree about plenty but we are united on what matters most: the kids." She said their four children would be starting the new academic year remotely.
