Kellyanne Conway said her husband's anti-Trump tweets were 'a violation of basic decency' if not their 'marital vows'
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway recently shared some strong words about her husband's viral anti-Trump tweets with a reporter, but only wanted to be quoted as "a person familiar with their relationship."
Washington Post reporter Ben Terris published an extensive profile of the dynamic between Conway and her husband, conservative lawyer George Conway, on Tuesday. It was the first story in which the two opened up about how President Donald Trump has complicated their relationship.
For more than a year, George has been publicly critical of the president on Twitter, while Kellyanne is often on TV defending him. In the Post profile, George, who introduced Kellyanne to Trump, said he now wishes he never did.
Kellyanne, meanwhile, said she believes there is a part of George "that thinks I chose Donald Trump over him," which she said "is ridiculous."
But asked about her husband's anti-Trump tweets, Conway said they are "disrespectful."
"I think it disrespects his wife," she said.
A few days later, Terris circled back on the remark. And Kellyanneexpanded on her thoughts.
"It is disrespectful, it's a violation of basic decency, certainly, if not marital vows," she said, then asking to have that quote attributed to "a person familiar with their relationship."
Terris refused, saying they were on the record during this portion of the discussion.
