Twitter users poured scorn on White House counselor Kellyanne Conway after she threatened a reporter for the conservative Washington Examiner newspaper in a telephone call.
In audio the newspaper released Thursday, Conway tore into journalist Caitlin Yilek for mentioning her husband George Conway’s anti-Trump views in an article detailing her reported consideration to become the next White House chief of staff.
Conway warned Yilek that “if you’re going to cover my personal life, then we’re welcome to do the same around here.”
She also claimed her attorney husband “gets his power through me, if you haven’t noticed. Not the other way around.”
“Kellyanne really covering herself in glory here,” one person responded on Twitter. Others described Conway’s call as “very disturbing” and “mostly embarrassing and sad.”
