In a post on Monday afternoon, George Conway pointedly responded to a video that his wife, Trump's senior counselor, had shared from Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. Conway scoffed at the notion that the USA would need a foreign country's help to defeat a presidential contender like Biden.
George and Kellyanne Conway have made their opinions of President Trump clear: He can't stand the man, while she is one of his most enthusiastic defenders.
The barb appears to be the first time George Conway had aimed his Twitter account, and its near-million-person following, squarely at his spouse, eliciting a swarm of responses online - some were amused, others fiercely critical and many more utterly bewildered. Trump in return has called George Conway a "wack job", a "stone cold LOSER" and a "husband from hell" who is jealous of his wife's success. You can't say after the fact "as someone familiar".
Terris: No, that's not true. People do see it that way, I don't say I do, but people see it that way.
Abby Huntsman said, "I don't like talking about it at this table or reading about it on Twitter". There are certain things you have said that I have postponed the recording.
Meghan McCain acknowledged Mrs. Conway's point, but also said, "I think they have a really sick relationship".
But at other times, Kellyanne Conway has rebelled over the political separation in her marriage, claiming that she is rooted in sexism and that a man in her position should not answer for the opposing views of his wife. Despite his wife's role in the Trump administration, George Conway has previously said that Trump is "guilty" of being unfit for office, called for Congress to remove the "cancer" of Trump from the presidency and questioned the President's mental health.
"Like every couple I know, George and I disagree on many big things and agree on many big things", she continued. "That's not what my position as Advisor to the President is".
"Possibly the few are playing with a competitive political match, with caring enough about the real-world effect of the activities they strenuously defend or condemn to hamper their love for one another", she wrote.
