Kellyanne Fumes When Confronted With Clip of Husband’s MSNBC Commentary: ‘Where is the Shame?’
White House senior advisor Kellyanne Conway appeared on CNN Thursday morning for special coverage of the ongoing impeachment inquiry, and things got strange and heated when host Wolf Blitzer asked her to opine on some rare cable news commentary by her husband George Conway.
Blitzer opened a conversation by raising the specter of a sensitive discussion about the marriage between a loyal Trump aide and her husband, who is a fierce critic of President Donald Trump. George Conway appeared on MSNBC Wednesday morning in what was his first television appearance since impeachment discussion started, and offered predictably critical words.
Kellyanne Conway objected intensely to Blitzer bringing up her husband, but the CNN host pushed through and eventually played a clip of George offering a harsh assessment of her boss on impeachment.
“The problem with Donald Trump is, he always sees himself first. Trump is all about Trump,” George Conway said. “And that’s why it was inevitable he’d get himself into this soup once again. And that’s what this is all about. He’s using the — he was using the power of the presidency. Its most unchecked area, foreign affairs, to advance his own personal interest as opposed to the country’s.”
After the clip was played for Kellyanne’s viewing, she simply said “that’s his opinion,” before hitting MSNBC for not “lacking anti-Trump voices.”
“Where is the shame?” she asked, going off on MSNBC and CNN for airing anti-Trump voices like her husband’s. The entire conversation about the intersection of politics and marriage went on for another five minutes, the full clip of which you can watch here.
