Rob Porter ex-wife responds to Kellyanne Conway in op-ed

Colbie Holderness, the first wife of former White House staff secretary Rob Porter, may be relieved that White House advisor Kellyanne Conway believes the accounts of Porter’s abuse of her and of Porter’s second ex-wife, Jennifer Willoughby. But she was perturbed to hear that Conway doesn’t consider White House communications executive Hope Hicks, who is now reportedly dating Porter, has much to fear. 

“I don’t worry about her in that respect,” Conway pronounced of Hicks. “I’ve frequency met somebody so clever with such glorious instincts and faithfulness and smarts,” she told CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday. 

It was a differing view to hear for Holderness, who had likely that if Porter hasn’t started abusing Hicks, he will. Conway’s statement, Holderness wrote, “implies that those who have been in violent relations are not strong.”

“I desire to differ,” pronounced Holderness in the op-ed. Abuse, she wrote, takes many forms.

“The abuse can be terrifying, life-threatening and almost constant. Or it can lessen and flow, with no assault for prolonged periods,” she observed.

“I also never illusory we would be in an violent relationship,” pronounced Holderness, observant that “being clever — with glorious instincts and faithfulness and smarts — does not inject a person against abuse.” 

She pronounced she didn’t see it coming for years, writing, “The really nauseous side of Rob’s abuse only came out after we married, following 3 years of dating.”

Abuse doesn’t distinguish between abounding and poor, Holderness observed, among those who are the slightest or many educated, or between those who have or do not have support from family or friends. 

She resolved by observant that Conway had been trying to residence Mr. Trump’s certain comments per Porter, but that the White House press secretary declined again Monday to contend whether the boss believes Porter’s ex-wives and their accounts of abuse. “While we can't contend we am surprised, we approaching a lady to do better,” Holderness wrote, and she quoted Conway from the CNN interview.

“‘There’s a tarnish and a overpower surrounding all these issues. . . . Those who are in a position to do something about it ought to.'”
