It's the week after Thanksgiving, so most people are finished fighting with their families. That doesn't appear to be the case for the Conways.
George Conway has never been shy about his disdain for President Donald Trump, despite his wife—White House Counsellor Kellyanne Conway—being one of the most prominent voices in defense of the Trump administration.
However, George has kept his critiques targeted at Trump himself, leaving Kellyanne's role in the administration out of it.
That changed today.
In what is shaping up to be Washington's weirdest marriage, George Conway called out his wife directly on Twitter for the first time.
Kellyanne tweeted an awkward video of former Vice President and current presidential candidate Joe Biden, mocking the idea that Trump would enlist the help of Ukraine for dirt to help him beat Biden (he did).
George quote tweeted Kellyanne with a biting retort.
Your boss apparently thought so. https://t.co/yje099pkPU— George Conway (@George Conway)1575316034.0
The tweet marks an escalation in the apparent feud between the spouses, and people don't know what to think.
Many unwilling spectators wish they'd handle these matters in private, rather than in front of their collective millions of followers.

Others insist that the bickering is all an act to save their reputations after Trump is gone.

Kellyanne has bristled in the past at interview questions regarding her husband, but with this latest confrontation from her husband, it doesn't look like the two can go much longer without addressing just what's going on.
