‘HUSBAND FROM HELL’
Meghan McCain to Kellyanne Conway: Is Working for Trump Worth Ruining Your Marriage?
‘Was it worth it to rip your family apart for this?’ ‘The View’ co-host asked.
President Donald Trump just can’t stop tweeting about George Conway.
The latest came on Wednesday morning, when the president of the United States wrote of his White House counselor’s husband, “George Conway, often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife’s success & angry that I, with her help, didn’t give him the job he so desperately wanted. I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!”
“It kind of sounds like him, he’s talking about himself,” The View’s Whoopi Goldberg quipped in response. She later suggested that George and Kellyanne Conway might “need to get some therapy.”
“It makes sense that Trump would get in the middle of this because he likes to separate families,” Joy Behar added. “At the border or wherever else he can do it.”
In general, the hosts’ biggest concern seemed to be that the Conways were airing their grievances in public instead of in the privacy of their own home. As George Conway explained in an interview earlier this week, “Frankly, it’s so I don’t end up screaming at her about it.”
“They have four children and some day their kids are going to grow up and read all this stuff on the internet and be like, how weird were my parents, they were tweeting about each other publicly,” Meghan McCain said later. “I feel bad for their kids. I also think that they just have a really bizarre relationship and I’ve said it on this show before, I couldn’t be married to someone who was publicly slandering my job or my life every day.”
If George was really “Mr. Kellyanne Conway,” as Trump calls him, then Behar suggested that she could “stop him from doing this.” Instead, Kellyanne Conway has stayed almost entirely silent about her husband’s criticisms.
“I just want to know if this is worth it them, if this has been worth it, working in the White House for President Trump during possibly only a four-year term,” McCain added. “Was it worth it to rip your family apart for this? Because it wouldn’t be for me.”
