Hosts of “The View” took aim at presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway and the very public disagreement she has with husband George Conway on President Donald Trump.
The hosts were commenting on a tweet and reply from the married couple where George Conway tweet quoted his wife who asked why they would need help from another country to defeat presidential candidate Joe Biden:
Your boss apparently thought so. https://t.co/yje099pkPU

The would-be burn was a very public display of what most have believed to be a private dispute up to now, and substitute host Ronan Farrow attempted a “journalistic” take when he pointed out that Kellyanne Conway took somewhat of a swipe at her husband “on background” to a reporter without realizing she was on the record. “It’s delightful to constantly watch them go at each other,” Farrow said.
“I think that they have a really sick relationship,” Meghan McCain added, going on to claim that she and her husband wouldn’t act the same in that position in public. “The idea that me and my husband would be somehow feuding with each other over our work, I just think it’s gross,” she said. “I don’t know why America has to be subjected to the marital problems.”
McCain, who claims to be a conservative yet opposes President Donald Trump, has something in common with George Conway, who claims the same affiliation. McCain has called George a “resistance celebrity” because of his relationship with Kellyanne. “And as a result, he craps all over her on Twitter all day and I think it’s very disrespectful. And I don’t like her and I don’t like the Trump Administration, but I don’t like this either.”
However, it was Abby Huntsman who pointed out the obvious, and took the defense of Kellyanne Conway’s: “The whole thing’s uncomfortable,” she said. “I don’t like talking about it at this table, I don’t like reading it on Twitter. And I’m not the biggest fan of what’s going on right now in the White House, but Kellyanne has been getting bullied.”
“She’s been getting bullied?!” Behar shot back. “She works for the Bully-in-Chief!”
