If attorney George Conway has one regret it's introducing his wife, Kellyanne Conway, to Donald Trump. Now, the rift in their marriage caused by Trump is playing out for the world to see in the most bizarre way.
It all started with George Conway's Twitter account. He has been a very vocal critic of Trump, putting out tweets such as—

It appears Kellyanne didn't appreciate her husband bashing her boss so she wanted to set the record straight, in a round-a-bout- fake source, alternative facts kind of way.

Twitter had a field day with this revelation.
