George Conway took his ongoing break with his wife Kellyanne over Donald Trump to a new level Monday, retweeting her own slam on Trump rival Joe Biden with a missive directed at ‘your boss’ to his hundreds of thousands of followers.
It was the latest escalation in a highly public marital feud over the subject that last month had Kellyanne Conway blasting a network anchor who forced her to listen on live TV to withering criticism her husband launched at Trump.
Kellyanne Conway, who provided a rare indoor gaggle with reporters inside the White House briefing room on a rainy Monday, had tweeted out a video clip of seemingly bizarre comments by Biden at a public event from back in 2017.

The rambling comments, taken out of context, were about Biden’s time working as a teenage lifeguard at a mostly black swimming pool, and featured the candidate talking about his own leg hair.
‘WATCH: Sleepy Joe is Creepy Joe. We need Ukraine’s help to defeat THIS guy?’ Kellyanne Conway wrote, blasting out the video clip of the Biden speech, which made the rounds in conservative media after being sent out by Trump campaign press secretary Tim Murtaugh Sunday morning, while Biden was engaged in an Iowa bus tour.
George Conway hit back, retweeting his wife about ten minutes later. ‘Your boss apparently thought so,’ he wrote, in reference to Trump.
Both members of the husband-and-wife team are unsparing in their criticism or defense of Trump, but they typically avoid going after each other directly.
In Biden’s comments, delivered while children in swim suits at a community pool name after the former senator from Delaware, Biden discussed the hair on his legs – after earlier saying he was the only white employee at the pool, a job he said he took partly to try to heal social divisions.
Kellyanne Conway had retweeted video of bizarre comments by Biden about his leg hair when he was a swimming pool life guard. The clip didn’t include context of Biden talking about taking the job as the only white employee at a mostly black community pool. He apparently was talking about how kids who swam there were unaccustomed to white people

‘I got hairy legs that turned … blonde in the sun,’ Biden said. ‘And the kids used to come up and reach into the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and watch the hair come back up again,’ Biden continued.
He said he ‘learned about kids jumping on my lap, and I loved kids jumping on my lap.
Kellyanne’s tweet was mocking a key part of the Democratic impeachment theory – that Trump abused his office by seeking assistance from Ukraine by pressuring the nation to investigate Biden.
Donald Trump Jr. advisor Arthur Schwartz jumped to Kellyanne’s defense, going after George Conway on her behalf.
‘If @gtconway3rd thinks it’s OK to trash his wife for her boss’ views, it’s definitely OK to trash George’s employer’s clients. Get on it,’ he wrote, tweeting a link to Conway’s firm of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz.
Kellyanne, among the president’s most loyal defenders, recoiled last month when CNN’s Wolf Blitzer told her he would play a clip of George Conway in what he called a ‘sensitive question’ and a ‘political question’ – ultimately showing a clip of him torching the president.
‘I don’t want to talk about your marriage. I know there are issues there,’ Blitzer told her.
‘Did you just say there are issues there?’ Conway asked him. ‘Why, and why are you doing that?’ she pressed.
