JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

White House advisor Kellyanne Conway has a complicated relationship with her husband, George, who is a vocal critic of the her boss, according to a Wednesday Washington Post feature.

On the subject of George’s tweeting, the medium through which he expresses his discontent with the administration, she has harsh words. “It is disrespectful, it’s a violation of basic decency, certainly, if not marital vows,” she said.

On George’s side of things, he wishes he had never introduced his wife to Donald Trump in the first place. In 2001, the Conways moved into Manhattan’s Trump World Tower where George made an impassioned speech, advocating that Trump’s name stay on the building. Trump was impressed and offered George to join the condo’s board. George, to his great regret, passed on the invitation to his wife.

“Knowing what I know now,” George told the Washington Post, “I would have said no, and never mentioned it when I got home.”  

“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 continued. “If the President were simply mediocre or even bad, I’d have nothing to say. This is much different.”

“I’m just saddened by how things turned out,” he said.
