Kellyanne Conway’s house is divided: She works for the president. Her husband, George, can’t stand the guy, though he was once an ardent supporter of him.

The Washington Post writes that George is one of the president’s most notable conservative critics and “wishes he had never introduced his wife to Trump in the first place.” The Conways have been jolted by the Trump presidency: They love each other but are exasperated by each other. They talk behind each other’s backs. They share a house, but they have different bunkers.

The Post writes that the Conway’s marriage is “emblematic of our national political predicament.” Their story represents one that is echoed throughout America: The story of the people who love Trump and the people who are trying to love them.

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