Kellyanne Conway Clashes With CNN Host Over Her Husband's Critical Tweets

Kellyanne Conway has made it clear that questions about her husband are off limits, clashing with CNN's Dana Bash on Sunday on the topic.

President Donald Trump's counselor was asked about her husband's tweets, which have been critical of the president and the administration, on Sunday's State of the Union prompting Conway to react angrily.

"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 and gratified to see that," she said, after Bash asked her "what is up with your husband's tweets, also accusing Bash of sexism.

Bash responded: "I would ask you that if you were a man," prompting Conway to shoot back: "No, you would not."

The host defended asking her question, but Conway said her job had nothing to do with her spouse.

"You just went there, CNN just went there," Conway said, commenting the question about her husband was "meant to harass and embarrass."

After Bash commented that the question was supposed to be lighthearted and added it was difficult for two adults who have differences of opinion, Conway interrupted: "Which two adults? My husband and me? You're talking about my marriage again…" appearing deeply unimpressed with the line of questioning.

Conway's husband George Conway, who has been married to the White House counselor since 2001, has previously made social media posts about adult film star Stormy Daniels, who claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006, and about the administration.

And The Hill reported he deleted several tweets last month that appeared to criticize Trump.

He also wrote a questionable tweet that suggested the president frequently said one thing and did another.

"So true. It's absurd. Which is why people are banging down the doors to be his comms director," George Conway wrote after retweeting the original message, apparently forgetting that his wife often responsible for interpreting Trump's various statements for the public.
