KELLYANNE Conway’s husband George compared "Trump minions" to "drunks trying to take down a skyscraper with a blowtorch."

The constitutional lawyer and the co-founder of the Lincoln Project took to Twitter on Wednesday as Trump and his supporters continue to decry the election results.

“The way I look at Trump and his minions' nonsense is that they’re like a bunch of drunks trying to take down a skyscraper with a blowtorch,” Conway wrote.

“I don’t think they have the remotest chance of succeeding, but I also don’t think we should allow them to start a fire while they try.”

Kellyanne recently left her post at the White House amid the controversy surrounding their daughter Claudia, who claims she wants to be emancipated from her parents.

George's comments come as Trump supporters and Proud Boys plan a "Million MAGA March" in support of his baseless allegations of election rigging in Washington DC.

Numerous groups and accounts promoting the event -– scheduled for Saturday, November 14– have appeared on Facebook, Twitter and conservative favored social network Parler in the last 72 hours.

Other MAGA fans took to the streets of major US cities after the November 7 results, carrying signs with slogans like "stop the steal" and "cheaters never win," while Biden supporters celebrated all over the country.

The move comes after Biden beat Trump in the presidential battle with 290 electoral votes to 214, per the Associated Press.

But the ongoing president is reportedly planning multiple rallies to galvanize his base and is refusing to attend Biden's inauguration.

Today, he took aim at Philadelphia's Republican Commissioner Al Schmidt today, who received death threats stemming from Trump's baseless allegations about the ballot count there.

He said the "so-called Republican (RINO), is being used big time by the Fake News Media to explain how honest things were with respect to the Election in Philadelphia."

RINO stands for Republican In Name Only, a slur which refers to GOP members whose political stances don't align with conservative ideology.

"[Schmidt] refuses to look at a mountain of corruption & dishonesty. We win!" Trump raged in a tweet that was flagged by Twitter as being "disputed."

Last weekend, Schmidt described the reaction of Trump and his base as "deranged."

"At the end of the day, we are counting eligible votes cast by voters," he said. "The controversy surrounding it is something I don't understand.

"It's people making accusations that we wouldn't count those votes, or people are adding fraudulent votes, or just coming up with all sorts of crazy stuff."

Likewise, Conway was quick to question the outgoing president's statements on Twitter – and his mental competency.

"Are we really going to have to send in the guys with the white coats and the nets?" he said in response to Trump's dig at Schmidt.

The stinging rebuke came as Trump doubled down on his "phony" election claims and plans rallies.

He also launched multiple lawsuits in battleground states to contest the voting results and is refusing to attend Biden's inauguration.

On Monday, Attorney General William Barr announced that he was launching a probe into "voting irregularities" in "specific instances" though there is no evidence of widespread fraud.

Biden has described Trump's refusal to concede as an "embarrassment," which is not helping "his legacy."
