    This is not the first time that White House Counsellor Kellyanne Conway’s husband has taken a swing at US President Donald Trump.

    Attorney George Conway, the husband of White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway, took to Twitter to mock President Donald Trump’s oratory skills following a press-conference on the recently called national emergency in the Rose Garden at the White House.

    Conway cited a Washington Post column by Henry Olsen that slammed what he described as a “rambling and disjointed explanation” for why POTUS is declaring a national emergency to fund a wall on the US-Mexico border.

    The line that caught Conway’s attention compared Trump’s incoherent speech to that of Star Wars character Jar Jar Binks, who speaks in a somewhat broken dialect and is widely despised in the movies:

    The wild comparison sent social media into a meltdown, with “Jar Jar Binks” apparently trending on Twitter now.

    Some suggested that it was unfair to the fictional character:

    Another user thought a different “Star Wars” character would be more accurate:

    On Friday, Trump signed a national emergency declaration to fund a border to wall on the US southern border with Mexico to stem the flow of illegal migrants.

    Republicans and Democrats have been in a stalemate over the funding, since Trump demanded more than $5 billion for the wall, while Dems could only agree to $1.4 billion for border security.

    The disagreements resulted in a record-breaking 35-day long partial government shutdown, which was ended after POTUS agreed to sign a temporary budget for government agencies.
