George Conway takes first public jibe at wife Kellyanne Conway while bashing Trump over Ukraine investigation of Biden
The husband and wife duo have mostly kept from targeting each other over their contrasting political views.
Attorney George Conway took an apparent first public swipe at his wife and senior White House aide Kellyanne Conway over their stark different political views of President Donald Trump and his administration.
Kellyanne wrote a tweet on Monday, commenting on a resurfaced video of former Vice President Joe Biden talking at an event in 2017 about allowing children to play with his "wet leg hair" and sit in his lap while he was a lifeguard. The White House aide wrote to her 3 million Twitter followers, saying: "Watch: Sleepy Joe is Creepy Joe."
"We need Ukraine’s help to defeat THIS guy?" she added making a reference to President Trump asking Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky for a "favor" to investigate Biden and his son Hunter Biden. House Democrats have suggested that the effort was made to damage Biden's candidacy.
Minutes after Kellyanne's tweet, her husband George responded to her by saying: "Your boss apparently thought so." An impeachment investigation is ongoing against Trump after a whistleblower lodged an official complaint, alleging that the president had sought favor from a foreign leader to investigate his political rival, Biden. The complaint also mentioned a possible quid pro quo with the Trump administration allegedly withholding military aide from Ukraine.
George Conway, a frequent critic of President Trump, has supported Trump impeachment, branding the controversial July 25 call phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky "quite damning."
The bizarre comments by Biden, taken out of context from the video, were about his time working as a teenage lifeguard at a mostly black swimming pool. The former vice president, in the clip addressing children in swimsuits, talked about kids being fascinated with his blonde leg hair as he was the only white employee at the pool, and had taken the job partly in an attempt to heal social divisions.
