Like many other married couples across the states (if not the world), White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and her husband, attorney George Conway, disagree on a variety of issues, particularly those related to her employer, President Donald Trump.
As the president’s right-hand woman, Kellyanne vigorously supports Trump and spends most of her day defending him from his critics, including the relentless media and swamp creatures like Omarosa Manigault-Newman.
But as someone with no direct links to the administration, her husband instead utilizes his time disparaging the president on Twitter, a fact that his wife finds quite unpleasant.
These tweets may make some ppl feel better, but they certainly won’t help OSG get 5 votes in SCOTUS, which is what actually matters. Sad. https://t.co/zVhcyfm8Hr

“It is disrespectful, it’s a violation of basic decency, certainly, if not marital vows,” she said during an a recent interview with Ben Terris of The Washington Post.
Yet stunningly enough, George admitted to Terris that his tweets don’t even accurately convey his full frustration with the president, whose policies and approaches he dislikes.
“I think I’m actually holding back a little. I think the reason why is obvious,” he said before being cut off by Kellyanne, who had reportedly begun “singing loudly into a cucumber, completely drowning out George, who has stopped talking and just looks on.”
“If my wife were the counselor to the CEO of Pepsi and I had a problem with her boss, I would simply drink my Coke and keep my mouth shut,” he added during a different portion of the interview. “If the president were simply mediocre or even bad, I’d have nothing to say. This is much different.”
Only rarely does George tweet anything that could be classified as being supportive of the president. Last week he tweeted a dismissal of a recent claim by Newman that she had once heard the president refer to him with a racist term.
The allegation is not credible, and indeed is ridiculous, particularly in light of the timing of her departure from the White House—December 12, 2017. It’s absurd all around.

The interview with the Conways occurred at the couple’s home in Washington, D.C., though Kellyanne’s remarks about her husband’s tweets being “disrespectful” were reportedly made a couple days after the interview.
Despite her husband’s dissatisfaction with her work life, Kellyanne maintained that she still loves him just like she did before she began working for Trump.
“I feel there’s a part of him that thinks I chose Donald Trump over him, which is ridiculous. One is my work and one is my marriage,” she said.
George added that his anti-Trump tweets represent just “a small part of my life … It’s a quick easy way to express myself, that keeps me from making it a bigger part of my life.”
That’s good, since it’s clear they’ll never see eye to eye on Trump.
“He’s not just my boss. He’s our president,” Kellyanne declared at one point in the view.
“Yeah,” George muttered back. “We’ll see how long that lasts.”
