During an interview with Kellyanne Conway, CNN host Dana Bash decided to change the topic and get personal. Bash soon figured out that this was a really bad idea. “What is up with your husband’s tweets? Your husband is a very well respected lawyer and he’s been sending some tweets that are critical of the administration,” asked Bash.
Kellyanne did not like being asked about this. “He writes a lot of things that are also supportive and he writes a lot of things about corgis and the Philadelphia Eagles too,” started Kellyanne.
“Number one, that woman who lost the election, whose name I never say on television anymore – is wrong. I think she said white women have to listen to the men in their lives to form their political opinions. Wrong again. It’s fascinating to me that CNN would go there, but it’s very good for the whole world to have just witnessed that it’s now fair game… how people’s spouses and significant others may differ with them… That should really be fun,” said Kellyanne.
Bash responded that her question wasn’t meant to be critical. “Oh, of course it was. It was meant to harass and embarrass,” said Kellyanne.
“There are other family members of people who work at the White House who certainly don’t support the President privately and publicly. There has been a different standard for me than there have been for other people. 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, so there is plenty that I don’t say,” said Kellyanne.
