Caught Between Donald Trump And His Fierce Critic Her Husband George, Kellyanne Conway Picks A Side And Throws Shade
Kellyanne Conway, the controversial Counselor to the President of the United States, is making more news than her boss these days.
The Republican operative is at the center of a soap opera that also features her husband, George Conway, a fierce critic of the leader of the free world.
The former pollster finds herself caught between her loyalty to President Donald Trump and the man she married 17 years ago.
Some commenters are already saying that the situation might not be sustainable in the long run because Mr. Conway has become more vocal in his criticism of the former reality TV star in the past few months.
This week, the law expert sat down with Yahoo News' Skullduggery podcast and explained why he did not join the Trump administration last year.
He stated: "I'm watching this thing and you know it’s like, the administration is like a sh*tshow in a dumpster fire. If I got this door prize, I’m going to be in the middle of a department he’s at war with. Why would anybody want to do this?"
After the statement gained a lot of traction in the media, the political aide decided to let the world know how she is feeling about her husband's statements to the press.
Friday, Kellyanne changed her Twitter bio to "The "Kellyanne Conway" in "Kellyanne Conway’s Husband." Many saw it as real dig directed at her spouse -- a way to remind him that she is the one who got him famous.
This builds on the previous reporting from several media outlets including Ben Terris from The Washington Post , who previously stated: "She told me that she finds it disrespectful when George tweets negative things about the president. She said it was like almost akin to going against marriage vows, that’s how disloyal it could seem at times."
After the new Twitter bio had gone viral, Kellyanne made another move and her profile now reads, "Mom. Patriot. Catholic. Counselor."
Trump sees Mr. Conway as someone who is trying to get attention by using his name. Moreover, he has launched a group of anti-Trump conservative lawyers because he believes some of the things the president is doing are against the Constitution.
