He's holds a staunch anti-Trump position.

Kellyanne Conway was originally hired as Trump's campaign manager and, later, counselor to the President. Aside from her job in the White House, Conway is best known for creating the phrase “alternative facts” and creating a fictitious incident called the “Bowling Green massacre.”

Being in the public spotlight can’t be easy, though we shouldn’t feel bad for her. With a networth of almost $40 million, she’s just one part of Trump’s extremely wealthy cabinet and employees. But what about Conway’s family? Surely they must take some issue with her current employment, right?

That just makes us wonder: who is Kellyanne Conway’s husband? George Conway III has recently become part of a slew of attacks at the hand of the president. Conway has called Trump "the worst kind of dumb," while Trump referred to Conway as a "total loser" and the "husband from hell."

And though he has asked his wife to resign, she continues to defend her boss. In an interview with Politico, Kellyanne said: 

"You think he shouldn’t respond when somebody, a non-medical professional, accuses him of having a mental disorder? You think he should just take that sitting down? Don't play psychiatrist any more than George should be. You're not a psychiatrist and he's not, respectfully... Why would it affect my job? Hasn’t everybody tried to push me out already and here I am, stronger than ever,” she said. “You're looking at it the wrong way.”

But has this ongoing feud affected her marriage? Here are 7 things to know about George T. Conway III and how he handles his wife’s close relationship with the president.

1. He has multiple degrees.

In 1984, he graduated from Harvard College in Biochemistry, obtaining an A.B. degree magna cum laude. He then received a J.D. degree from Yale Law School.

During his time at Yale, he was the editor of the Yale Law Journal and president of the Federalist Society, an “organization of conservatives and libertarians seeking reform of the current American legal system in accordance with a textualist or originalist interpretation of the U.S. Constitution.”

2. He served as a law clerk.

Right after college, he became a law clerk to Judge Ralph K. Winter, Jr., who served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. He then joined, and later became a partner, for Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz.

3. He’s an attorney.

He’s been a lawyer on some pretty notable cases, representing Paula Jones in her case against  Bill Clinton for sexual harassment. He worked closely with both Ann Coulter and Matt Drudge during the case. He also argued the 2010 case of Morrison v. National Australia Bank, which went before the U.S. Supreme Court, and won with an 8-0 vote.

4. They met through Ann Coulter.

During his work on the Clinton case, he became close friends with Ann Coulter, who eventually introduced him to Kellyanne. He knew of Kellyanne from her television punditry appearances, and when he saw her on the cover of a society magazine in the 1990s, he called Coulter and asked for her to introduce them. Conway then courted Kellyanne and took her on trips to the Hamptons and baseball games.

5. They have four children.

The couple has four kids: a set of twins, George IV and Claudia, and daughters Charlotte and Vanessa. 

6. Trump considered appointing him to various positions.

He was a candidate to serve the U.S. Department of Justice posts, and was also considered to be Solicitor General of the United States. Trump also nominated him to be Assistant Attorney General and head the Civil Division at the U.S. Department of Justice, but Conway declined to take any of these positions.

7. He’s been a very vocal opponent of Trump.

Conway, who is a Republican, has been critical of Trump since the election. His Twitter account mostly retweets links and other voices who blast the president’s behavior.

When Trump accused Ohio governor John Kasich of being “unpopular,” Conway jumped to his defense and posted a poll showing that Trump is actually much more unpopular in Ohio. Surprise, surprise. (Not really.)

And apparently, Kellyanne doesn’t like the way her husband talks about her boss, and tried to take him down ... anonymously. Obviously, that didn’t quite work out.

During an interview with Ben Terris of The Washington Post, she complained that her husband’s recent tweets were “disrespectful” and “violated their marital vows.” She asked Terris to quote her as someone who was “familiar with their relationship,” but not Conway herself.

Instead, Terris published the entire story and exchange on how Kellyanne’s job has affected her marriage.

It’s no wonder Conway has such a distaste for Trump, especially since he abuses the law that Conway is so well versed in. He said he regrets introducing his wife to the president, saying, “Knowing what I know now... I would have said no, and never mentioned it when I got home.”
