Kellyanne Conway Criticizes Husband’s Anti-Trump Tweeting: Violation Of ‘Marital Vows’

By  Amanda Prestigiacomo

During an interview with The Washington Post, White House advisor Kellyanne Conway criticized her husband’s anti-Trump tweeting, suggesting it’s a violation of their “marital vows.”

George Conway, a Republican who used to be fond of Donald Trump, made waves on social media by re-tweeting anti-Trump articles and posting comments (some of which have been deleted) critical of the president while his wife serves as a loyal Trump advisor.

“I think it’s disrespectful,” Kellyanne Conway stated. “I think it disrespects his wife.”

Conway told the Post’s Ben Terris that her husband’s open criticism of the president allows for “the implication that they are pitted against each other bothers their children.” Plus, she said, both she and the president find the tweeting “impolite.”

But she’s not pitted against her husband, and she didn’t choose Trump over him: “I feel there’s a part of him that thinks I chose Donald Trump over him,” Conway said of George. “Which is ridiculous. One is my work and one is my marriage.”

In a conversation which Conway initially contends was supposed to be off-the-record, she suggests that the anti-Trump tweets from her husband are a violation of their marital vows:

Me: You told me you found [George’s tweets] disrespectful.

Kellyanne: It is disrespectful, it’s a violation of basic decency, certainly, if not marital vows . . . as “a person familiar with their relationship.”

Me: No, we’re on the record here. You can’t say after the fact “as someone familiar.”

Kellyanne: I told you everything about his tweets was off the record.

Me: No, that’s not true. That never happened.

Kellyanne: Well, people do see it this way. People do see it that way, I don’t say I do, but people see it that way.

Me: But I’m saying we never discussed everything about his tweets being off the record. There are certain things you said that I put off the record.

Kellyanne: Fine. I’ve never actually said what I think about it and I won’t say what I think about it, which tells you what I think about it.

Mr. Conway, though, says the issue is not his tweeting.

“Her problem is with her boss, not me,” he said.

“If my wife were the counselor to the CEO of Pepsi and I had a problem with her boss, I would simply drink my Coke and keep my mouth shut,” continued George. “If the president were simply mediocre or even bad, I’d have nothing to say. This is much different.”

And the tweeting is unlikely to stop.

“It’s an outlet, that keeps it a small part of my life,” he said of Twitter, adding, “It’s a quick easy way to express myself, that keeps me from making it a bigger part of my life.”

“I think I’m actually holding back a little. I think the reason why is obvious.”
