George Conway has developed a reputation for sharing and penning critical tweets of Donald Trump, even though his wife is one of the president's most high-profile advisers. Until recently, it hasn't been clear whether this gets under his wife's skin, but that has since changed. A recent profile of the couple in The Washington Post reveals that Kellyanne Conway finds her husband's anti-Tump tweets "disrespectful."
"I think its disrespectful," she told the Post. "I think it disrespects his wife."
By and large, George tends to decline interview requests regarding his critical opinions of President Trump on Twitter. But in the Post profile, he described his tweeting as "an outlet."
"Its a quick easy way to express myself, that keeps me from making it a bigger part of my life," he said.
Back in March, George made headlines when he began deleting tweets that criticized Trump, though he declined to tell reporters why he was doing so. He has since resumed sharing critical tweets, though sometimes those tweets are only passively critical.
On Tuesday, for example, he shared a tweet that included an excerpt from an article claiming that Trump has an aversion to dogs. He followed that tweet up with images of other presidents and world leaders seated with and petting their respective pets. Though there is no explicit criticism, the juxtaposition of such messaging suggest a critical point of view.
Earlier this summer, George wrote an op-ed for the the Lawfare Blog, arguing against Trump's claim that the special counsel's appointment was unconstitutional. Trump had tweeted as such earlier in the summer.
"The constitutional arguments made against the special counsel had little more rigor than the tweet that promoted them," George wrote. "Such a lack of rigor, sadly, has been a disturbing trend in much of the politically charged public discourse about the law lately, and one that lawyers regardless of their politics owe a duty to abjure."
According to the Post profile, George used to be a Trump supporter so much so that he said he cried when Trump won the presidential election. "Now I cry for other reasons," he said, according to the article.
The Post profile described a couple that was doing its best to get along despite apparent differences of opinion on the president. One recurring topic was Kellyanne's independent personality.
"I feel theres a part of him that thinks I chose Donald Trump over him, Kellyanne told the Post. "Which is ridiculous. One is my work and one is my marriage."
As for George, he didn't offer many specifics as to why he was so critical of the president. He hinted that he felt morally compelled to speak out.
If my wife were the counselor to the CEO of Pepsi and I had a problem with her boss, George explained, I would simply drink my Coke and keep my mouth shut. If the president were simply mediocre or even bad, Id have nothing to say. This is much different.
George's critical tweeting won't be slowing down any time soon, if what he has tweeted thus far this week is any indication. And at this point, Kellyanne's job at the White House appears on track to be one of the most secure high-profile positions in the administration so far. For the Conways, this marital disagreement seems slated to stay.
Regardless of what hubby believes, this is undercutting Kellyanne. Not usually a recipe for long-term harmony.
She should say that directly to him.
Sounds like George is sleeping in the guest room or on the couch for a couple of nights.
Because liberals can’t keep their mouths shut.
Go look at his picture.
the guy is a jerk. period. but it plays to the FakeNewsMSM.
Are you serious? OMG She didn't really marry this guy, did she? Somebody must be paying him to do this. Somebody with a lot of money and hubby has a long term contract.
Someone ought to write a book or article about this guy, Ron Reagan Jr & that Bobby Goodlatte dork... Call it “Profiles in Family Disloyalty.”
What kind of man does that to his wife?
I cant imagine doing this to my wife but then l am not a Rat.
Anyone can take a bad picture... and he did.
This marriage wont last. George has made the decision to alienate his wife.....so sad and immature of him.
That was my first thought.
Sounds like they need Christian counseling sooner rather than later.
A real a-hole. Unless she enjoys being some kind of doormat for this guy (some women tolerate abuse of all varieties), I don’t like this marriage’s long-term chances.
Mr “Kellyanne” has been hinting that he wants out of the marriage, and Kellyanne has not gotten the message. Or, she’s gotten the hint and won’t act on it while Trump is the president or while she is an adviser to the president.
The left-wing media would turn the breakup into another “Trump scandal”, and Kellyanne won’t have any of it.
I’ve never trusted anyone that was a full throated cheerleader for the count copulot cubnadian express...Especially when everyone knew he wasn’t eligible
Something really wrong with this man.
I’m sure she is rarely home and maybe he feels neglected/jealous???????
But that doesn’t mean you tweet about your wife’s boss for all to see.
Something doesn’t quite add up.
