Kellyanne Conway Writes About Her Husband Throwing Away Their Marriage For Some Twitter Validation and Payback

I doubt that this is the whole story, but at least it's some of the story.

I don't think Twitter Addicts realize that normal people wonder about them, and no, we're not wondering about their wit. We're wondering, "Why aren't you spending time with your spouse? Or significant other? Don't you have children you're supposed to take care of from time to time? Don't you have a job?"

Twitter Addicts think they're dazzling us as they spend hour after hour grinding and grinding for validation on Twitter, but they're actually just creating a series of highly negative inferences about themselves.

Chiefly: If you're spending hours begging for validation on Twitter, that means you're not getting validation in real life.

I've mentioned this, but even when I was wasting way, way too much time on Twitter, I began imposing the rule that I would not tweet on Friday or Saturday nights, because people have better things to do on Friday or Saturday night than to tweet.

I mean, I actually didn't actually have better things to do, but there is a value in Keeping Up Appearances, isn't there? When you stop even keeping up appearances, you're just letting everything all slide into hell.

Anyway, here's how one of many marriages dissolved because one spouse sought attention from Twitter, from the NY Post:

In her new memoir, Kellyanne Conway writes that she was shocked when her husband George (pictured together) started posting anti-Trump tweets, leading to a showdown between them.

As Conway tried calling and texting George to no avail, questions started swirling in her head: Why had George done that? Why hadn't he mentioned it to her beforehand? "And," she writes, "was this tweet really posted by my Trump-loving, MAGA-cap-wearing husband, George Conway?"

Ooooh, Plot Twist!

So this ugly toad was actually a Trump supporter? This supports my long, long, long-standing notion that George Conway's spectacularly-public embarrassment of his wife had nothing to do with politics and was animated entirely by anger about something personal.

Trump was just the cudgel used to beat her with.

Is Conway one of the guys Trump claimed begged him for a job in the Administration? My googling skills are failing me (or "The Algorithm" is hiding "disinformation" that would undermine anti-Trump propagandists).


After his first tweet damning Trump in 2017, George's posts were mostly innocuous. Then, in the spring of 2018, George and Conway were invited to dinner at the home of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, with whom she had a tense relationship.


A week after the dinner, George unleashed on Twitter -- and never stopped.


"Oh no, I thought, here we go again," Conway writes of her reaction to his tweetstorm. Though she often asked George why he was rampaging on Twitter, he simply did not answer.

Soon after, Ivanka Trump handed Conway a Post-It note with "the names of two local doctors who specialized in couples therapy."

"I noticed she had avoided putting that in a text or an email. I appreciated the information and her thoughtfulness and wanted to pursue it," Conway writes. "After I showed George the names, he rejected one and said a halfhearted 'okay' to the other while looking at his phone. We never went."

Then, on July 3, 2019, they were at their beach home on the Jersey Shore when she turned to her husband and told him calmly what was on her mind.


George looked dazed, but she kept going, saying he was the only person who had a choice to make. "You can see me mostly as your wife of 18 years and the mother of your four children, or you can see me mostly as senior counselor to President Donald Trump. When you wake up every morning, you have to decide how it is you see me."

"George," she added, "how do you see me?"

She writes that Conway yelled without making eye contact, "You have ruined yourself and you have embarrassed this family."

Conway shot back, "I've embarrassed this family? You abandoned me for Twitter and she's not even hot."

More from Axios:

What she's saying: "I had two men in my life. One was my husband. One was my boss, who happened to be president of the United States. One of those men was defending me. And it wasn't George Conway. It was Donald Trump."

George Conway, she writes, disappointed her by "skipping the kinds of confidential, civil conversations spouses typically have when one has a change of heart or both agree to disagree about something big."

"What are you doing, George?” I asked him plainly and calmly. I got the same answer every time ... "You work for a madman," George would say in a loud, sinister voice ...

"Like everything George did during this time," Conway continues, "I found out about it after it happened or as it was happening. It was sneaky, almost sinister. Why not own it, share it, sneer in my face with a copy of tomorrow's Washington Post op-ed or next week's Lincoln Project ad?"

Night after night, I would come home from a busy day at work ... While I was minding dishes, dogs, laundry, managing adolescent dramas and traumas, George would be just steps away from me, tucked away in his home office, plotting against my boss and me.

Apparently they're still together -- she writes that he encouraged her to write this book.

Though I can't imagine why they're together.

Kids are older now, aren't they?
