In a rare move, attorney George Conway directly involved his wife and White House advisor Kellyanne Conway in an attack on President Donald Trump.

The president’s adviser, responding on Monday to a viral video of former Vice President Joe Biden talking about children touching his hairy legs in a pool, tweeted, “Sleepy Joe is Creepy Joe. We need Ukraine’s help to defeat THIS guy?”

Conway had made a similar comment weeks earlier, telling Fox News host Martha MacCallum, “Give me a break, we don’t need Ukraine to help beat Joe Biden.” (RELATED:  Kellyanne Conway Fires Back: ‘Give Me A Break, We Don’t Need Ukraine To Help Beat Joe Biden’)

Her husband quoted her tweet, adding, “Your boss apparently thought so.”

The couple are often at odds politically speaking, but people were quick to note that it was rare for Conway to engage his wife directly on Twitter.

For her part, Kellyanne Conway has often scolded reporters who ask about the state of her marriage in light of the often-expansive gap between her support for President Trump and her husband’s obvious distaste for him.
