White House counselor Kellyanne Conway bristled on Sunday when CNN’s Dana Bash asked about tweets critical of the White House published by Conway’s husband, George Conway, a prominent lawyer.
“It’s fascinating to me that CNN would go there,” Conway responded when Bash asked about the tweets. “We’re now going to talk about other people’s spouses and significant others just because they either work in the White House or at CNN? Are we going to do that? You just went there.”
Conway said that Bash’s question “was meant to harass and embarrass.”
The White House adviser’s husband deleted a few tweets last month that were critical of President Donald Trump and the administration. He said it was “absurd” that the White House denied plans to fire H.R. McMaster as national security adviser shortly before McMaster was indeed fired. He also published a tweet saying that a report that a lawyer for Trump discussed pardoning Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn “flabbergasting.”
