Kellyanne Conway Slams Nikki Haley for Calling Out Trump — But Her Husband Has a Different Reaction

The Conway family was split Friday in response to a tweet from former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. The former diplomat criticized President Trump on Twitter after he seemed to celebrate a break-in that happened at the home of Congressman Elijah Cummings.

“Really bad news!” Trump wrote. “The Baltimore house of Elijah Cummings was robbed. Too bad!”

“This is so unnecessary,” Haley responded.

Kellyanne Conway, one of the president’s closest advisors in the White House, hit back at Haley, citing her tweet and writing “THIS is so unnecessary.” She also commented, “Trump-PENCE2020.” That last bit seemed to be a jab at the never-ending rumors and suggestions that Trump could replace Mike Pence with Nikki Haley on the 2020 ticket.

But George Conway, Kellyanne’s husband, had a different view on Haley’s criticism of Trump.

“Come on out, Nikki, the water’s warm,” he wrote. “Be on the right side of history. Be on the right side.”

George Conway has become a frequent critic of the president. In April, he called the president “deranged Donald,” and he’s since written an op-ed arguing the president is a racist. President Trump attacked George Conway on Twitter in March, claiming he wanted a job in the Trump administration and writing, “I barely know him but just take a look, a stone-cold LOSER & husband from hell!”

Haley’s tweet puts her among the list of former Trump officials who have turned critical of the president. Also on that list are former top aide Omarosa Manigault and former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

And this isn’t the first time that she has criticized the president. She seemed to take a jab at the president in late 2018, saying, “In the last two years, I’ve seen true evil. We have some serious political differences here at home. But our opponents are not evil. They’re just our opponents.”

What do you think?

I don’t see a thing wrong with the President’s statement. Of course it’s “too bad” Cummings home was broken into while HE was IN the home. What was Trump supposed to say: “Hey, that’s fantastic. Hope he got mugged”?

** From the Article ** And this isn’t the first time that she has criticized the president.

Seriously off the top of my head I can think of more than a couple of instances that Ms Haley encountered true… Read more »
