Kellyanne Conway Discusses George Conway -vs- Donald Trump…

White House Senior Adviser Kellyanne Conway sits down for an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo.  Within the interview Bartiromo asks Ms. Conway about her husband’s very public criticisms of President Trump…. and the conversation gets weird.

This is an unusual public conversation about an odd personal dynamic.

      It is such a weird situation… I can not believe a husband would do that to his wife. I do not care if he hates the president- one day Trump will not be in officer– will he still have a marriage after this is all over? His comments have been over the top for a while and honestly if that were my husband, the first week he pulled this crap he would be on the couch– he insists on on the BS tweets- the next step is HOTEL- still carrying on? Get a lawyer.

      I’ve been around a lot of bipolar people in my life. Many of them were high functioning until they got to around 40 years old. Sometimes, a significant stressor can be a catalyst.

      Kellyanne mentioned that he was a partner at a law firm at just 30 years old. She mentioned that the entire family picked up and moved to Wash DC. They had a complete life change.

      Perhaps he is bipolar and has crashed and he lashes out when he’s in mania.

        I’ve known a few people married to bipolar spouses, with children, and it’s a hard row to hoe, and also extremely difficult to talk about with people who “don’t get it”. Wishing KAC and her family the very best, whatever is going on

        The fact that she hasn’t left him over this made me say a long time ago that he had a mental illness and neither she nor POTUS wishes to attack him for that reason. It’s the only thing I can think of. Other than bi-polar there is another mental illness that I’m familiar with. They tried dropping the name but it’s still known as borderline personality disorder.

        When her husband said Trump was suffering from narcissistic personality disorder, I thought that odd UNLESS he was a man familiar with psych terms. Most guys would have said, “Trump is a narcissist” rather than using the “npd” nomenclature.

      agent – agreed. That was a very, very weird interview. KellyAnne never answered Maria’s questions directly, danced around the REAL answers very obviously, and ended up sounding extremely political, which is what she probably has to be in this situation. I would assume that she and Georgie boy (who should be ashamed of himself) have agreed to disagree on this issue and have successfully figured out a way to separate their work lives from their personal lives. More power to them if they can do it. That being said, the lamestream surely sense blood in the water and are not about to let this go. I think Georgie has mental problems, frankly.

    I watched the interview this morning and it was weird. She called him George Conway, said that Donald Trump, President Trump was defending her… implied George was not happy with her job. Said he could have had any job he wanted in the administration… but Solicitor General was taken.

    There is something going on in that marriage and it isn’t good. He is obviously very jealous of her “power” and instead of taking it out on her, he takes it out on the President. When Maria asked a question about the home life, KAC got very defensive. Said she was a strong independent woman who came from a one parent family… that she had four children and that was her primary focus.

    The way KAC was answering questions was very different from her normally well guarded responses.

    It is also VERY odd that this is all so public.

He’s embarrassing her on purpose, and she’s doing her best to stay close to her kids for their sake instead of going through what would now be a very public divorce, which due to its distracting publicity, would require her to step down from her job.

      It is indeed odd that it’s so public. George’s behavior is obviously caused by jealousy — jealousy of his wife’s allegiance to another man, Trump, and jealous of her power and public profile. But his behavior is inexcusable. The thing about the interview, to me, was how aggressive Maria Bartiromo was — why was she digging in on this painful part of Kellyanne’s life? Why did she persist? She really backed Kellyanne up against the wall — what did she expect her to admit? Did she want her to break down and cry? Why should Kellyanne Conway be required to provide such personal details about her marriage? I just didn’t get it. Trump should have just left it all alone. Kellyanne shouldn’t have to be in the middle of two warring men.

Kellyanne didn’t reveal that much, but she let Maria continue to ask pointed questions. I think she wants this info out there. She wouldn’t do it otherwise.

          The maximum a staff member can make is about $176,000. While that’s a good income, depending on where you live it may not be as good as many think. As for divorce, I thought someone said she’s Catholic and that most likely ties her hands. As for child support, depends on the jurisdiction and the judge. Those things don’t necessarily come easy. I can tell you story after story of people I’ve known in different parts of the country that got settlements that would stun you. One, for example, was a divorce in Colorado. The husband was a successful attorney. His wife had an affair and left him and the kids. She divorced him and after years of battling in court and appealing it, the final decision was that he got custody of the kids and had to pay her maintenance (they don’t call it alimony in Colorado) and child support (yes, he had to pay her child support even though he got custody of the kids) and the total of maintenance and custody was his entire annual income. He ended up having to take a second job to pay his own bills.

              So here is my take: “mental abuse” is one of those terms that has no boundaries or real definition. Kelly Anne seems very grounded and quite capable of making her own judgment calls. Also, I just finished studying 1 Peter in which he advises against “meddling” – so I’m not going to meddle in this anymore than I already have!

          They hand annulments out quite easily now, but if you actually follow Church doctrine and not the corrupted worldly Bishops there are very few reasons for annulment: when Rudy Giuliani found out he’d married his cousin that was legitimate.

          It comes down to if the marriage was valid and it wouldn’t be valid if the person you married committed fraud when you married, was a relative, was already married to someone else, etc.

          That being said you can get a divorce at any time – it’s just that you can’t remarry, date, etc. because under Church law you are still married unless their is a valid annulment granted.

          There are many Catholics who were abandoned or forced to divorce nasty spouses that are active in the Church – they just live in celibacy.

            Annulments are easy to get these days… And were so even in 1983… One of the most high-profile people to have received an annulment from the Catholic Church was Senator Teddy Kennedy. The Massachusetts Democrat received the annulment from his first wife, Joan, in the 1990s after he admitted that he wasn’t being honest when he vowed he would be faithful to her. The couple, who married in 1958, divorced in 1983. Imagine that? “I want an annulment after 25 years because I really didn’t mean it when I said I would be faithful to Joan… I knew I would sleep around and now I want the Church to free me up technically to do so and still receive Communion”…

        Practising Catholics (not CINOS – of which there are many), take marriage very, very seriously, and they mirror that for their children.

      As well as Kellyanne seems to be holding on to her sanity regarding this bizarro situation with her a-hole of a husband, I question how long she can remain in Trump’s inner circle with this massive distraction going on. I have sympathy for her, but her personal problems are becoming the President’s problems, and that is something he doesn’t need added to his plate.

      I would imagine this is getting extremely uncomfortable for ALL of her coworkers at the Whitehouse by now too, as no one is exactly sure what to say regarding the fatheaded elephant in the room. IMO, Kellyanne needs to either dump this POS, or take some time off, or resign, until this issue is dealt with and put to bed.

      I don’t know… I thought Maria B. was pretty hard on her, digging into painful areas of her life — relentlessly. It’s no one’s business, really. Kellyanne should not be caught between her boss and her husband. Imagine a man whose wife was publicly bitchy about his 12 hour a day job being grilled like that. The problem today is that there is NO such thing as privacy. When you attack an individual’s privacy, you attack that individual. This is what happens in socialism — no privacy, no individual.

    I thought I heard echoes of her fights with her husband – we made the decision to move here together as a family, George could have had a high ranking DOJ appointment, but something happened, the kids are most important.

    It’s ironic he “snapped” by publicly characterizing his wife’s job as part of a “s***show in a dumpster fire,” because that’s what he’s now making of their “power couple” relationship. Ironic, too, because KAC’s strengths include helping her boss avoid some of the self-inflicted harm such tabloid fare can have on the President.

    I suspect something happened either in George’s relationship with the President, or his relationships with his partners and clients, or both, that negatively affects his self-image, as her husband. Going from “partner” to “of counsel” probably cost him a lot in terms of income and status within his firm, and without the high level government service to polish his resume with that he’d planned on.

    It’s hard to imagine he planned out the consequences of initiating a twitter feud with President Trump, so he comes off looking like he’s in a downward spiral, and is taking it out by being abusive towards his wife and family.

    George Thomas Conway III is an American attorney. Conway was on the short list of candidates considered by President Donald Trump for United States Solicitor General prior to the nomination in March 2017 of Noel Francisco for that position. He was subsequently considered for Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division at the U.S. Department of Justice. He is married to Kellyanne Conway, a political consultant who is a Counselor to the President for Trump. During 2018, he emerged as a sharp critic of Trump.

    ….

    Legal career –

    snip…
    On March 17, 2017, Conway was reported to be the nominee as Assistant Attorney General to head the Civil Division at the U.S. Department of Justice.owever, on June 2, 2017, he announced that he declined to pursue the post.[14][15] On November 16, 2018, Conway stated that a reason he did not join the Trump administration is because it is “like a shitshow in a dumpster fire.”[16]

    snip…

    In November 2018, Conway organized a group, “Checks and Balances,” composed of more than a dozen members of the conservative-libertarian Federalist Society, which had been instrumental in selecting candidates for the Trump administration to appoint to federal courts. The New York Times reported the group is “urging their fellow conservatives to speak up about what they say are the Trump administration’s betrayals of bedrock legal norms,” with group member John Bellinger stating “Conservative lawyers are not doing enough to protect constitutional principles that are being undermined by the statements and actions of this president.”[19]

    You forgot that Kellyanne was against Trump before she was for Trump. I remember her tweets during the primary. Her husband George was against Trump as well at the time, there is no doubt about it.

    She “changed her mind” because of the package deal Mercer made with the Trump campaign.That’s how Bannon and Conway got prominent positions, not because they were strong Trump supporters at the time. Further down the road Kellyanne played the role admirably, unlike Bannon who wanted to control Trump and failed. She adjusted her attitude and became a real asset eventually. POTUS certainly thinks so.

    George, on the other hand, probably experienced cognitive dissonance and eventually snapped because of the lack of positive reinforcement. Had he gotten the job he desired, he would have felt less inclined to publicly express his resentment and personal dislike of Trump, and we would have never been treated to this disgraceful show. The guy can’t help it, he must vent or he would explode. Similar to how Cruz behaved during the Convention. Emotions sometimes override common sense.

    1. The president is defending a loyal employee. Kudos to him, standing up for the lady (even though it puts her in a tough spot.
    2. Perhaps Mr. Conway will learn something from his wife’s wonderful example.
    3. If Mr. Conway not getting a job at the White House had anything to do with a decision by the president, the president OBVIOUSLY made the right call.
    4. Shame on you Mr. Conway for embarrassing your wife publicly. Obviously it’s all about you. What did you just teach your children about marriage and husbands and wives supporting each other? Yes, nothing.

    • Amy- nobody forced Kelly Anne to do this horrible interview. She was an embarrassment to herself and our President.

        You know she’s going to be asked about this every time she does an interview. There is no way she embarrassed the president. Her words about him were positive and respectful. The only person she embarrassed was her husband, which is fine, because he deserved it.

  50. I just went and re-watched the train wreck. I cringed even more than I did the first time.
    Try it. Kelly Anne is just not making sense. At one point she even says her hubby wants her to quit her job. As Maria keeps saying “it’s so odd.”

    Very scary lapse in judgment. This cannot stand. Not as we go into an epic battle to save our Country. It is going to be the battle of our lifetime.

    Kelly Anne’s first concern as she keeps saying is her 4 children which is understandable.

    That being said- she has shown she is no longer suitable for her position in my estimation. Kelly Anne does not know how to deal with the daily, never ending attacks the way our President does. This interview shows how much of a liability she has become. I don’t know how she can recover from this.
