Kellyanne Conway’s husband has been trolling Trump pretty good on Twitter. But when Kellyanne was asked about it on Sunday, she completely flipped out.
On Sunday morning, Kellyanne Conway absolutely unloaded on CNN’s Dana Bash after she was asked about her husband’s tweets. Apparently they’re a touchy subject for Kellyanne.
George Conway has been critical of Trump and his administration on Twitter. So it seems like a natural thing to ask his wife about…his wife who also serves in the Trump administration.
Kellyanne’s initial response to Bash’s question about her husband was to say that he tweets “a lot of things about Corgis and Philadelphia Eagles and sports, too.” But things went downhill fast from there.
“It’s fascinating to me that CNN would go there,” Kellyanne said. “But it’s very good for the whole world to just witness that it’s now fair game how people’s spouses and significant others may differ with them. I’m really surprised, but very, in some ways, relieved and gratified to see that. That should really be fun.”
“You just brought him into this,” she complained to Bash. “This ought to be fun moving forward, Dana. We’re now going to talk about other people’s spouses and significant others just because they either work at the White House or CNN? … CNN just went there.”
Her temper tantrum is actually quite funny, when you consider how the Trump campaign attacked Hillary over her husband’s actions. I seem to recall Trump parading out Bill Clinton’s accusers at a presidential debate. And that was just fine with Kellyanne. But, now that her husband is being questioned, she’s losing her shit.
Kellyanne told Bash that she was trying to “harass and embarrass” her by asking about her husband.
Bash responded saying,
“Kellyanne, here was my whole point of this, is that you are a professional working for the president of the United States and your husband is a very well-respected lawyer, and my point is that we don’t often see ― in fact, I don’t remember the last time we saw ― somebody working for the president in a high-profile position when their spouse is saying critical things about them. That is all.”
Hours after the interview on Sunday, Kellyanne was still pissed off about the question. She tweeted:
I’ve long admired fellow Jersey Girl & working mom @DanaBashCNN.
Makes this harder to comprehend.
Amidst convo about North Korean nukes & Comey leaks/ McCabe lies, the “final q” is this?
