White House adviser Kellyanne Conway had a relatively low media profile for a few months, since she was busy mismanaging the White House response to the opioid crisis.
"It's fascinating to me that CNN would go there", Conway said. We're now going to talk about other people's spouses and significant others just because they either work in the White House or.at CNN. "I'm really surprised, but very, in some ways, relieved and gratified to see that".
"It's fascinating for me CNN goes there (that) it is now fair game the way individuals's spouses and others may disagree using them", Conway stated.
Conway countered that there are relatives of other White House staffers who don't back Trump at all.
And to make her track record even more shameful, let us not forget that Conway also defended Trump's endorsement of Roy Moore for Senate, despite all the allegations of child molestation and abuse against Moore.
After Bash commented that the question was supposed to be lighthearted and added it was hard for two adults who have differences of opinion, Conway interrupted: "Which two adults?" And I didn't know what she was talking about at all. "No, no, no, no, no", Conway responded.
"It's about questioning, publicly questioning, what you are doing for a living and with regard to your boss.", Bash said.
"CNN chose to go there", she added.
Conway continued to stay on the defensive by stating that spouses "by definition have differences of opinion" and that Bash's question was a "cross-the-Rubicon moment" demonstrating the "double standard" Conway has to deal with.
Vox said it was hypocritical for a Trump administration official to answer in this way after the way President Trump attacked not just Hillary but Bill Clinton on the campaign trail and that Trump had goaded fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe about his wife Jill's loss in a Virginia state senate campaign.
