Kellyanne Conway Wanted To Criticize Her Husband -- But As An Anonymous Source

Since past year, George Conway, a prominent attorney whom Trump considered nominating for solicitor general, has been posting and retweeting tweets critical of the president.

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway and her husband, attorney George Conway, disclosed intimate details of their marriage in an interview with The Washington Post.

It's a picture he took on election night 2016: Donald Trump is reaching for the first draft of his acceptance speech, just as victory seemed imminent.

In perhaps one of the most revealing parts of the article, Kellyanne disparages George's habit of writing and speaking out on Twitter against the president. "I've never actually said what I think about it and I won't say what I think about it, which tells you what I think about it", she said - whatever that means. Before doing that, however, she said that "people do see it that way", implying that some people consider her husband's anti-Trump tweets to be a "violation of basic decency, if not marital vows".

In another scene, George Conway said he regretted introducing his wife to Trump, which he did when he passed on an offer to be on the condominium board of the Trump World Tower in Manhattan. And Kellyanne expanded on her thoughts. She asked Terris to be quoted as a "person familiar with their relationship" ― not as herself.

"I told you everything about his tweets was off the record", Conway told Terris. However, assuming she has an agreement with the writer that such comments would be off-the-record, Kellyanne says to attribute her quotes to an anonymous source. As "someone familiar with their relationship" told me, rather than "As Kellyanne Conway said".

"No, that's not true", Terris said.

Kellyanne Conway finally spoke about how her husband's anti-Trump tweets are "disrespectful". "People know of my husband because of me". There are certain things you said that I put off the record.

Twitter/George Conway George Conway has been tweeting his criticisms of Trump (and retweeting others' complaints) since 2017.

"If my wife were the counselor to the CEO of Pepsi and I had a problem with her boss", George explained, "I would simply drink my Coke and keep my mouth shut". "If the president were simply mediocre or even bad, I'd have nothing to say".
