Kellyanne Conway responds to Trump calling her husband ‘Mr. Kellyanne Conway’

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway has shared her thoughts about President Trump’s dismissive reference to her husband as “Mr. Kellyanne Conway.”

According to Fox News Sunday, she said: “I think the Mr. Kellyanne Conway comment is instructive too because people describe my husband as Kellyanne Conway’s husband more often than they describe him by his first name so I’m sure the feminists are really cheering me on today – an independent strong-willed woman in a very powerful position who disagrees with her husband.”

Her husband, George Conway, was knocked by President Trump Friday in the wake of the lawyer’s recent New York Times op-ed titled, “Trump’s Appointment of the Acting Attorney General Is Unconstitutional.”

In it, Conway and co-writer Neal K. Katyal blast acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker’s lack of Senate confirmation and write, “For the president to install Mr. Whitaker as our chief law enforcement officer is to betray the entire structure of our charter document.”

When Trump was asked about George Conway’s piece, the president said, “You mean Mr. Kellyanne Conway?”

And when he was pressed about the issue, Trump said of the lawyer: “He’s just trying to get publicity for himself. Why don’t you do this: Why don’t you ask Kellyanne that question, all right? She might know him better than me. I really don’t know the guy.”
