Kellyanne Conway snapped at Chris Wallace, “Fox News Sunday” host, over what she deemed an “inappropriate” question about the state of her marriage.
Attorney George Conway is a vocal critic of President Trump as he called him, among other things, a narcissist and claimed that he’s “unfit for office” — but what makes his criticisms of particular interest to many in the mainstream media is the fact that he is married to White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway.
Wallace brought up several of George’s recent tweets during a Sunday morning interview with Kellyanne Conway, while also mentioning the President’s response to the attacks.
“I don’t want you to fight,” Wallace explained. “I guess the question I have to ask, bottom line, final question, has this hurt your marriage?”
Conway immediately snapped back, calling his question “inappropriate.”
“What are you, Oprah now? What, am I on a couch and you are a psychiatrist? I think it’s a really inappropriate question, and here’s why. That’s the line over which nobody should have crossed. So, if you want to talk about policy issues, policy disagreement, the fact that George Conway, my husband, would prefer that I not work in the White House, I guess you can ask those questions.”
“The president has weighed in, I’ve weighed in as modestly as I can. But now you’re asking a very personal question and I would say to you, you should go ask it of many people. I see messy lives living in glass houses all over both cities in which I live.”
“I’m surprised that people would ask that question,” Conway continued. She went on to call out few other media personalities who had asked many similar questions regarding the state of her marriage, saying, “I have seen homewreckers on TV as marital experts all of a sudden. It’s very amusing to me but I think people knew they crossed the line when they’re talking about people’s marriages.”
“My family has a right to their private life also,” Conway concluded. “I have children who are 14, 14, 11 and nine. And the reason it gets so much coverage, particularly by the mainstream media, is because George Conway now agrees with them.”
Wallace ended the segment with an apology. “As I said, I’m not comfortable asking it, it is what people are talking about,” he said. “If I offended you, I’m sorry.”
