I’m telling you up front that I had a bona fide belly laugh at this exchange in the clip below about That Other Conway:
WOLF: He’s a legal scholar, he’s a lawyer, and he was really going after the president of the United States, and he was all over television yesterday…
KELLYANNE: And the relevance is? And? And? C’mon, wait for it, drumroll. And he’s married to me?
WOLF: Well, you know, he happens to be married to you.
KELLYANNE: You can run the clip of—– He happens to be married to me?
It works better when you watch, trust me. Kellyanne usually loses these exchanges with reporters about George’s political activities since her shtick of treating questions on the subject as inherently unfair is lame. The Conway story is so bizarre that it would be newsworthy even if they were a pair of local politicos. Imagine Kellyanne as senior advisor to some mayor somewhere and her husband George, a bigshot lawyer in town, putting up fliers all over Main Street about how the mayor sucks. Instead we get to watch this psychodrama play out on the grandest possible stage, in full view of national media. It’s not as if George’s critiques of Trump are pedestrian or restrained either. I could understand Kellyanne’s annoyance if he were tweeting his disagreement with Trump’s marginal tax rates and reporters were confronting her about it in interview after interview. But George’s point on Twitter every day isn’t that Trump’s trade war is foolish or whatever. It’s that he’s a narcissistic sociopath whose mind is degenerating by the day.
