Trump has pushed back against George Conway's criticism, telling reporters that he is only speaking out to "get publicity for himself."

Kellyanne Conway last month poked fun at the media's coverage of her husband by making her Twitter bio, "The ‘Kellyanne Conway’ in ‘Kellyanne Conway’s Husband.' " 

Conway in a Washington Post profile published over the summer called her husband's repeated criticisms of her boss "disrespectful."

"I think it’s disrespectful,” she said. “I think it disrespects his wife.”

She then walked back her comments by saying that "people see it that way."

In the profile, she also said that "part of" her husband feels she "chose" Trump over him.

“I feel there’s a part of him that thinks I chose Donald Trump over him,” she told the Post. "Which is ridiculous. One is my work and one is my marriage."
