George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, went after President Donald Trump for saying Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan “dishonored her parents” by calling for his impeachment while employing an expletive.
After being sworn in Thursday, Democrat Tlaib attended a MoveOn rally in Washington, D.C., where she said, “(W)e’re going to go in there and impeach the motherf—er,” to the loud cheers of the crowd.
The 42-year-old lawmaker did not back down from her description of the president despite serious backlash from both sides of the political aisle.
“I will always speak truth to power. #unapologeticallyMe,” she tweeted Friday morning.
Trump was asked about the comments later on Friday at the White House. He said they were “disgraceful” and that she had “dishonored herself” and “dishonored her family.”
“Using language like that in front of her son, and whoever else was there, I thought that was a great dishonor to her and to her family. I thought it was highly disrespectful to the United States of America,” Trump told reporters.
On Sunday, George Conway tweeted a clip of Trump’s response, while asking, “What, exactly, does he know about honor?”
