Kellyanne Conway anchors CNN after saying "I know there are issues with your marriage"
Donald Trump's advisor and frequent spokesman Kellyanne Conway clashes with a senior CNN presenter after suggesting that she has "problems" with her marriage to a prominent critic of the president.
In an interview with Ms. Conway, who often speaks on behalf of the administration, veteran journalist and presenter Wolf Blitzer plays videos from a rival channel from the previous day in which her husband was seen criticizing Mr. Trump.
Ms. Conway's husband, George Conway, is a Republican lawyer who has become well-known as a keen critic of the president, even while his wife worked for him as presidential candidate and then when he entered the White House.

"This is a sensitive issue and a political issue. That's a significant question, "said Mr. Blizter.
" I don't want to talk about your marriage, I know there are issues there. Your husband, George Conway, is a lawyer. I don't want to talk about your marriage, I know. Your husband, George Conway, is a lawyer …. "
At that moment, Ms. Conway intervened and said, "What did you just say. No no no. You just said there were problems there? You don't want to talk about my marriage, but …? "
Mr. Blister reiterated his claim that he did not want to talk about her marriage, and released a clip from MSNBC of Mr. Conway attacking the president.
After he did this, Ms. Conway said she was embarrassed by CNN. "Where's the shame, where's the introspection," she said. "And is it appropriate, and come on – wait for it – drum roll – and he's married to me?"
The Conways are not the first known couple in Washington to agree to disagree with politics. James Carville, who was Bill Clinton's campaign manager in 1992, is married to Republican consultant Mary Matalin.
At the same time, Mr. Conway's criticism of Mr. Trump is often vile. The President has sometimes, though not always, responded to the Jafs. In March, he called him a "total loser" and a "spouse of hell," after Mr. Conway suggested that the president would not serve him mentally.

In her interview on Thursday, Ms Conway told Mr Blitzer: 'You are embarrassed and I am embarrassed about you. "
" I looked up to you when I was in college and law school, I would turn on CNN to see what Wolf Blitzer had to say about war, hunger, disorder abroad, "she added.
I have respected you all these years as someone who will tell you the news and now this is someone's husband saying. "
