Soledad O’Brien, CEO of Starfish Media, took aim at White House counselor Kellyanne Conway through her husband, George Conway III.

On Friday morning, O’Brien replied to one of George Conway’s tweets — appearing to suggest that he needed to exercise some control over his wife.

O’Brien was responding to a tweet from Conway criticizing President Donald Trump for his continued attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions. He claimed that the president was not “capable of comprehending what it means to ‘take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.'”

O’Brien is not the first to voice this kind of take — Hillary Clinton, amid a litany of other excuses, claimed that President Trump won the 2016 election in part because white women were voting the way that the men in their lives told them to vote.
