Kellyanne Conway responds to Donald Trump calling her husband ‘Mr. Kellyanne Conway’

George Conway, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s husband, co-authored an op-ed in the New York Times, alongside Neal K. Katyal, called “Trump’s Appointment of the Acting Attorney General Is Unconstitutional,” criticized attorney general Matthew Whitaker’s lack of Senate confirmation.

As expected, President Donald Trump was asked to share a few impressions about this piece. And his reaction was somehow surprising: “You mean Mr. Kellyanne Conway? […] He’s just trying to get publicity for himself.”

Right after this, Kellyanne Conway, considered by many as one of the President’s most trusted staff members, felt the need to make things clear regarding the president’s reference:

“I think the Mr. Kellyanne Conway comment is instructive too because people describe my husband as Kellyanne Conway’s husband more often than they describe him by his first name so I’m sure the feminists are really cheering me on today – an independent strong-willed woman in a very powerful position who disagrees with her husband.”
