White House counselor Kellyanne Conway clashed Sunday with CNN’s Dana Bash when she was asked about her husband’s tweets that criticize President Trump.
“What is up with your husband’s tweets?” Bash asked.
George Conway’s tweets critical of the POTUS have drawn attention, considering his wife’s job within the administration. Last month, he began deleting tweets that commented on the president’s legal problems and staff shakeups.
“He writes a lot of things that are also supportive, and he writes a lot of things about corgis and Philadelphia Eagles and sports, too,” Conway responded with a smile to Bash.
After inserting Hillary Clinton’s name into the conversation, Conway went on to say defensively, “It’s fascinating to me that CNN would go there, but it’s very good for the whole world to have just witnessed that it’s now fair game… how people’s spouses and significant others may differ with them.”
Although Bash said she wasn’t criticizing Conway’s husband, Conway quickly begged to differ.
“It was meant to harass and embarrass,” she interrupted, adding that spouses frequently have differences of opinion. “So this is a fascinating ‘crossing the Rubicon moment’… and I’ll leave it at that.”
Bash tried to smooth ruffled feathers, but…
