White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s husband, George Conway, directly responded to his wife’s tweet on Monday, in a public escalation over their differing views about President Trump.
Kellyanne Conway tweeted out a video of Trump’s rival Joe Biden recounting that, during his time as a lifeguard, children would play with his leg hair, writing, “WATCH: Sleepy Joe is Creepy Joe. We need Ukraine’s help to defeat THIS guy?”
George Conway, who strongly opposes Trump, quote-tweeted his wife, responding, “Your boss apparently thought so.”
It is the first time Conway has quote-tweeted his wife. The two have disagreed publicly about the Trump administration but have tended to keep away from directly confronting each other about it.
Conway has told friends that he thinks that his wife, who has worked for Trump since before he was elected, is in “a cult.” Kellyanne Conway has said that any power her husband has, he derives from her, and has been critical of media outlets covering their relationship.
