Kellyanne Conway was out on the “Sunday Spin Circuit” this morning, with a stop at enemy headquarters (aka CNN). Specifically, she appeared on State of the Union to be interviewed by Dana Bash.
There were a couple of interesting parts to the interview, both having to do with tweets. One was about Trump’s tweets whining about how unfair that FBI raid on Michael Cohen was.
The other tweets, the one’s that have grabbed today’s news cycle, were tweets by Mr. Kellyanne Conway. It’s seems Kellyanne’s hubby, George, has been giving her boss the bad mouth on Twitter for the last month or so. In fact, in March, he launched about 100 tweets at Hair Fuhrer. Naturally, this has a bunch of people (including Dana Bash) wondering what the hell is going on?
So, Dana did what journalists are supposed to do. (Are you listening Bullshit Mtn.?) She asked Kelleyanne about it.
Here’s the conversation, or you can skip down and watch the video. (Although, that way you have to listen to Kellyanne’s cackle.)
Dana: What is up with your husband’s tweets?
Kellyanne: It’s fascinating that CNN would go there, but very good for the whole world to have just witnessed that it is now fair game what people’s — how people’s spouses and significant others may differ with them. I’m really surprised, but very relieved and gratified to see that. That should really be fun.
Dana: No, actually, I would ask you that if you were a man.
Kellyanne: No you would not.
Dana:It’s about questioning, publicly questioning what you are doing for a living with regard to your boss and it has nothing to do with do with your gender.
Kellyanne: It has to do with my spouse.
Dana: Right. That is what I was asking.
Kellyanne: You just brought him into this. This ought to be fun moving forward, Dana. We’re now going to talk about other people’s spouses and significant others because they either work at the White House or CNN? Are we going to do that? You just went there. […] It was meant to harass and embarrass.
Dana: Absolutely not.
Kellyanne: By definition spouses have a difference of opinion.
Dana: I could not agree more.
Kellyanne: Spouses of a difference of opinion when one is draining the joint bank account to support things maybe the other disagrees with. So this is fascinating cross the Rubicon moment and I will leave it at that.
Dana: That certainly was not intended to cross any Rubicon. It was actually intended to be somewhat light-hearted about the fact that we are all grown ups who have different opinions.
Kellyanne: You said I have to ask you a question on everybody’s minds.
Dana: It is. It is. I’m sure you hear it, too. It is hard to have two adults in a situation like this. It is unusual —
Kellyanne: I’m sorry. It’s hard for whom? I’m sorry. Back it up. (crosstalk) Who are the two adults. My husband an me? Now you are talking about my marriage again?
Dana: I am not talking about your marriage.
Kellyanne, here is my point is that you are a professional working for the president of the United States and your husband is a very well-respected lawyer. My point is that we don’t often see somebody working for the president in a high-profile position when their spouse is saying critical things about them. That is all.
Kellyanne: Well that A, is not true. There are other family members of people who work at the White House who certainly don’t support the president privately and publicly. But I will tell you this, there are people in this administration who worked for Democrats or gave money to Democrats.
But all of that aside, that really is meant to divert attention from again the big issues that America cares about. But like I said, CNN chose to go there. I think that going to be fascinating moving forward. And don’t deny that when you just said it must be difficult. I want you to clarify though for the whole world-wide audience and in fact for me since you raised me.
It’s quote, difficult for whom to have two adults what? (crosstalk) Difficult for my children who are probably watching you right now? It is not hard for them.They have already seen a double standard for their mother for two years.
Dana: It is not about gender. I don’t want to have this conversation. You know I don’t believe it is about gender.
Kellyanne: It’s not about gender. Hold on. There has been a different standard for me than there have been for other people, and we bite our tongue plenty because I work for the people of this country, the United States government and the presidency and the president of the United States. There is plenty that I don’t say.
I get the feeling that if we ever find out what this was all about, it won’t be from Kellyanne. For someone as thick-skinned as she is, this hit a nerve!
