Kellyanne Conway sat down for an interview with CNN on Thursday that turned contentious after host Wolf Blitzer asked the White House counselor about her husband, outspoken Trump critic George Conway.
“I just have a final question, a sensitive question, and it’s a political question, it’s a substantive question,” Blitzer asked. “I don’t want to talk about your marriage. I know that there are issues there.”
Conway immediately bristled at Blitzer’s suggestion about her marriage.
“Did you just say there are issues there?” she exclaimed. “You don’t want to talk about—why would you say that?!”
George Conway had just spent an entire day at MSNBC providing on-air analysis and criticizing the GOP’s “incoherent” defense of the President.
Blitzer stated he merely wanted to get Conway’s reaction to her husband’s criticism.
“So before you play the clip which I haven’t seen. Why—why are you doing that?” Conway asked, prompting Blitzer to note that her husband is a “legal scholar” who is renowned for his criticisms of the President.
“And the relevance is, and, come on—wait for it—drum roll—and he’s married to me?” Conway shot back, causing Blitzer to add: “He happens to be married to you.”
Conway and Blitzer went back and forth before playing a clip of George Conway saying Trump was “using the power of the Presidency” to advance his own personal political interests.
“What you just quoted is said every day by other voices, but you wanted to put it in my husband’s voice because you think somehow that that will help your ratings or that you’re really sticking it to Kellyanne Conway,” she fumed. “And let me be very clear. You didn’t stick it to Kellyanne Conway. I think you embarrassed yourself and I’m embarrassed for you because this is CNN now?”
