Kellyanne Conway is the first woman to run a successful presidential campaign, and her family should be darn proud of her accomplishment. She worked her butt off. They don’t have to like her boss, but they should respect her enough to keep their commentary to themselves, given her position.
Yeah. I’m talking about her husband, George. He doesn’t like Trump and continues to make that ABUNDANTLY clear. I’m not saying he’s not entitled to his own opinion. Of course he is. However, I think she should– in the very least– keep his opinions off Twitter for his wife’s sake. It’s totally disrespectful to her.
The Washington Post actually has a really interesting profile on the Conways, and they talk a little but about the awkward dynamic.
“I feel there’s a part of him that thinks I chose Donald Trump over him,” Kellyanne says as we walk. “Which is ridiculous. One is my work and one is my marriage.”
Naturally, though, the two things overlap. When George criticizes the president publicly, Kellyanne says, the media coverage and the implication that they are pitted against each other bothers their children. And as for the president himself, Kellyanne won’t say it irks him, but she does think he finds it “impolite.” On that, she’d agree.
“I think it’s disrespectful,” she says. “I think it disrespects his wife.”
Kellyanne is an independent woman, an independent woman stuck between two men who could blow up her day with a tweet.
“Nobody knows who I am because of my husband,” she says. “People know of my husband because of me.”
There are no signs of George stopping.
Trump tweeted this:
“Department of Justice will not be improperly influenced by political considerations.” Jeff, this is GREAT, what everyone wants, so look into all of the corruption on the “other side” including deleted Emails, Comey lies & leaks, Mueller conflicts, McCabe, Strzok, Page, Ohr……

And George tweeted this:
What everyone should want, and the country needs, is a “President” capable of comprehending what it means to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” Art. II, § 3. https://t.co/V80OUR6Z7O

I don’t know how they (Kellyanne and George) do it, honestly.
