White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s husband, George Conway, does not seem to share his wife’s boundless enthusiasm for defending President Trump. He has repeatedly tweeted critiques of the president, going after Trump’s Twitter habits, his staff turnover, and, most recently, his understanding of the law.
When Conway appeared on CNN’s State of the Union Sunday, this was not a topic she wanted to discuss. “It’s fascinating to me that CNN would go there, but it’s very good for the whole world to have just witnessed … that it’s now fair game how people’s spouses and significant others may differ with them,” Conway told host Dana Bash.
Bash protested the question was not intended to be critical and had nothing to do with Conway’s gender, only her husband’s high profile as a conservative lawyer. “Oh, of course it was [critical],” Conway replied. “It was meant to harass and embarrass,” she continued, labeling the exchange a “cross the Rubicon moment.”
