Lawyer George Conway went after his wife, President Donald Trump’s senior advisor Kellyanne Conway, in public for the first time on Monday.
George Conway shared a scathing Twitter reply to his spouse after she called Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden “Creepy Joe” in a tweet.
Kellyanne had retweeted a clip of former Vice President Biden with the comment “Sleepy Joe is Creepy Joe. We need Ukraine’s help to defeat THIS guy?”
George Conway fired back 11 minutes later: “Your boss apparently thought so.”

George’s clapback referred to President Trump’s pressure campaign on Ukraine to get it to investigate Biden and his son ahead of the 2020 presidential election — the issue at the center of the House’s impeachment inquiry.
A well-known conservative lawyer, George has been outspoken in his criticism of Trump for the past 18 months or so. But until Monday he had never publicly and directly gone after his wife or her work.
Kellyanne Conway is an ardent defender of Trump. She helped run his campaign and is one of the longest-serving senior advisors in the Trump White House.
