George Conway went after his wife, Kellyanne Conway, a prominent White House adviser, in public for the first time on Monday.

Kellyanne had retweeteda clip of former Vice President Joe Biden with the comment “Sleepy Joe is Creepy Joe. We need Ukraine’s help to defeat THIS guy?”George replied, “Your boss apparently thought so.”

George’s jab referred to President Donald Trump’s pressure campaign on Ukraine to get it to investigate Biden and his son ahead of the 2020 presidential election — the issue at the center of the House’s impeachment inquiry.

A well-known conservative lawyer, George has beenoutspoken in his criticism of Trumpfor the past 18 months or so. But until Monday he’d never publicly and directly gone after his wife or her work.

After serving as Trump’s campaign manager for the last few months before the 2016 election, Kellyanne has maintained her position as one of the president’s most trusted and combative surrogates and advisers.

In October,The Atlantic published an 11,000-word op-ed article, titled “Unfit for Office,”in which George described the president as an unstable narcissist and pathological liar. He also argued that White House aides had normalized Trump’s lying or were “in denial.”

“Trump’s ingrained and extreme behavioral characteristics make it impossible for him to carry out the duties of the presidency in the way the Constitution requires,” he wrote.
