President Donald Trump appears to have created an ideological rift between White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway and her husband, attorney George Conway, according to a Washington Post report published Wednesday.
George gained notoriety for railing against the president on Twitter.
Kellyanne said she’s not a fan of George’s critical views about her boss.
“I think it’s disrespectful,” Kellyanne said. “I think it disrespects his wife.”

President Donald Trump appears to have created an ideological rift between White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway and her husband, attorney George Conway, according to a Washington Post report published Wednesday.

George, who once considered joining the Justice Department after Trump took office, gained notoriety after railing against the president on Twitter. In a now-deleted tweet, he described Trump’s string of hirings and firings at the White House as “absurd;” and in another tweet, described Trump’s statements as “false and misleading.”

Kellyanne, on the other hand, could be seen cheerleading many of Trump’s policies or extinguishing the White House’s fiery critics. This week, Conway attempted to mitigate the unflattering details from former communications director Omarosa Manigault’s new book, “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House.”

This political divide in the Conway household appears to have affected at least some parts of their marriage. Kellyanne said she viewed George’s critical views on her boss with disdain, and also appeared to downplay his importance in political spheres.

“I think it’s disrespectful,” Kellyanne told The Post. “I think it disrespects his wife.”

“Nobody knows who I am because of my husband,” Kellyanne added. “People know of my husband because of me.”

Ann Coulter, the provocative conservative speaker, reportedly introduced George to Kellyanne. The Conways married in 2001 and moved into the Trump World Tower in New York. Trump took notice of George during a condominium board meeting and offered him to join …read more

Vaughn Palmer: Many drivers can expect ICBC rate shocks, despite those reduction promises

VICTORIA — The New Democrats continued the far-reaching transformation of auto insurance Wednesday, seeking approval from the B.C. Utilities Commission for higher rates for higher-risk drivers in higher risk places, plus relief for others at least in the short term.

The application itself runs to more than 400 pages, including a 300-page cabinet order, underscoring the challenge of calculating the impacts of the changes on individual drivers.

Some things did stand out from an initial reading of the new framework, which was released by ICBC and posted on the BCUC website Wednesday afternoon.

The reworking of the way ICBC calculates territorial risks (where you live and drive) will mean higher premiums in the Lower Mainland and southern Vancouver Island, reductions for all other parts of the province, with the Peace, the Cariboo and the North Coast being the biggest winners.

Likewise the decision to revisit rate classes (how you use the vehicle) will mean a steady escalation for those with daily commutes longer than 15 kilometres and vehicles registered for pleasure or business use.

There will be some relief in the calculation for motorhomes, commercial use and shorter commutes.

The shifts are spread over 10 years to minimize impact. Over that span, the geographical contribution to setting rates will be increased by almost 11 per cent for Lower Mainlanders and reduced by more than 50 per cent for those driving in the Peace River Country.

The upward shift in the calculation for business or pleasure use is about four per cent over the 10 years.

Keep in mind that territorial risks and class of use are only two factors in calculating overall premiums. Other upward shifts will affect inexperienced drivers, newcomers to B.C., and insurance for additional drivers on a given vehicle. In an example provided by ICBC, even one additional driver could boost premiums by $135 …read more

BYU golfer just misses out in playoff for final spot in U.S. Amateur match play

BYU golfer Peter Kuest was as one of the two players to advance past the first hole of a 24-man playoff at the U.S. Amateur Wednesday morning, but his hopes of making it to match play were quashed on the second hole with a shot into the ocean at the Pebble Beach 18th hole.

Both Kuest and Rhett Rasmussen, who will both be juniors on the Cougars’ golf team this fall, were among the 24 players who had tied for 64th place at 4-over-par 147 and were involved in an unusual playoff for the final spot.

Only Kuest and LSU golfer Jacob Bergeron were able to make birdies at the par-3 17th hole with Kuest sinking a testy 10-foot putt and Bergeron a 5-footer.

The two went to the par-5 18th hole, where Kuest found trouble with his second shot from 206 yards, which hooked into the water. He eventually made a triple bogey, while Bergeron advanced with a bogey-6.
