White House Senior Advisor Kellyanne Conway appeared on CNN Thursday morning for special coverage of the ongoing impeachment inquiry, and things got strange and fascinating when host Wolf Blitzer asked her to opine on Wednesday’s commentary made by her husband George Conway.
Blitzer opened a conversation by raising the specter of a sensitive discussion about the marriage between a loyal Trump aid and her husband, who is not just a fierce but also vocal critic of President Trump. George Conway appeared on MSNBC Wednesday morning in what was his first television appearance since impeachment discussion started, and offered predictable critical words.
“The problem with Donald Trump is, he always sees himself first. Trump is all about Trump,” George Conway said, adding “And that’s why it was inevitable he’d get himself into this soup once again. And that’s what this is all about. He’s using the — he was using the power of the presidency. Its most unchecked area, foreign affairs, to advance his own personal interest as opposed to the country’s.”
After the clip was played for Kellyanne’s viewing, she simply said “that’s his opinion,” before hitting MSNBC for not “lacking anti-Trump voices.” She then pivoted to what she sees as consistent anti-Trump and pro-impeachment rhetoric on MSNBC and CNN saying “where is the shame.”
