Meghan McCain, always counted on as a Donald Trump critic, jumped publicly amidst the politically fraught marriage of George and Kellyanne Conway–as husband and wife stood up on opposite sides of this week’s controversy over Trump’s racist tweets.
Loyal Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway made headlines of her own when she asked a reporter about his nation of origin after he inquired about Trump’s tweets telling four non-white Democratic congresswomen to “go back” to the countries they came from.
Meanwhile, husband George Conway–a conservative attorney but regular Trump gadfly in his own right–published a prominent op-ed in The Washington Post using his own Filipino experience to denounce Trump as racist in no uncertain terms.
During a discussion on her TV show The View, McCain offered no sympathy for either Conway.
“What I will say is her husband is one of the most adamant, outspoken people, especially against what he interpreted as the president’s tweets being racist,” she said. “And my message to George Conway is: ‘Start at home, okay?’ If me and my husband were together — no. I’m sick of this. Because he gets on his high horse on Twitter all day long. If I felt like my husband were going on TV and saying racist comments, and things like this, and I were so outraged, we would be having a conversation.”
