President Trump has torn into Kellyanne Conway’s husband, calling him a “loser” and the “husband from hell.”
Taking the ongoing feud between himself and Conway’s spouse, George Conway, to a new level, Trump called George a “stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!” The complete tweet was:
“George Conway, often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife’s success & angry that I, with her help, didn’t give him the job he so desperately wanted. I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!”
In what you would think would be one of the most unlikely feuds of the Trump era, George Conway, husband of Trump’s top advisor, has repeatedly questioned the president’s mental health on social media, all while his wife continues to work at the White House.
In response to Trump’s demeaning tweet, George Conway fired back, immediately, tweeting, “You seem determined to prove my point. Good for you! #NarcissisticPersonalityDisorder.” He added, “You. Are. Nuts.”
Long Time Animosity Between POTUS and Kellyanne’s Husband
George Conway is a known conservative, yet he has been a longtime critic of the president. He reignited those flames last week by lambasting Trump for a claim that the sentencing of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort had exonerated the president from the Russian collusion piece of the probe.
“Have we ever seen this degree of brazen, pathological mendacity in American public life?” Conway tweeted. “One day he makes a harmless slip of the tongue, something any mentally balanced person would laugh off. But instead he lies about it. He denies what the world can see on videotape. Even his donors and supporters wonder, what is wrong with him? Why would he feel compelled to tell such an absurd lie?”
According to Fox News, Trump’s 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale, initially responded by claiming it was just sour grapes.
“We all know that @realDonaldTrump turned down Mr. Kellyanne Conway for a job he desperately wanted. He barely worked @TheJusticeDept and was either fired/quit, didn’t want the scrutiny? Now he hurts his wife because he is jealous of her success. POTUS doesn’t even know him!” Parscale tweeted.
Later, Trump retweeted Parscale, adding, “A total loser!” in reference to Conway.
So what does Kellyanne say about all of this? She has kept mostly silent, however, back in December, she reportedly described her husband’s comments as “disrespectful” to The Washington Post, and “a violation of basic decency, certainly, if not marital vows.”
She later asked the paper not to attribute the quote to her, but rather to “a person familiar with their relationship” — a request that was denied by Post writer Ben Terris.
“Well, people do see it this way. People do see it that way, I don’t say I do, but people see it that way,” she added.
One has to wonder what the pillow-talk is like in the Conway household!
