US president Donald Trump escalates feud with aide Kellyanne Conway's husband

US president Donald Trump escalates feud with aide Kellyanne Conway's husband

George Conway has criticized Trump on multiple occassions despite his wife's, Kellyanne's, role as Counselor to The President.

Meanwhile, Kellyanne, in December, reportedly described her husband's comments as "disrespectful" to The Washington Post, and "a violation of basic decency, certainly, if not marital vows".

In another, he said: "The President of the United States" and linked to Trump's tweet.

George Conway, who turned down a Justice Department job in June 2017, once went to bat for Trump to settle a dispute at the Trump World Tower in NY, where the Conways lived at the time.

Trump's broadside on Twitter comes as George Conway, a conservative lawyer and frequent critic of the president, has publicly questioned the president's mental health in recent days.

Conway also replied directly to Trump's second post.

Moments after Trump called him a "loser" on Tuesday, Conway punched back on the social messaging site.

Political commentators have made much of the dynamic between George and Kellyanne Conway, given their decidedly anti- and pro-Trump stances.

Mr Trump issued a series of tweets over the weekend in which he attacked the late senator John McCain, Google and the Russian Federation investigation, prompting Mr Conway to suggest the president had a narcissistic personality disorder.

Asked Monday if she agreed with her husband's assessment, Kellyanne Conway said: "No, I don't share those concerns".

"Congratulations! You just guaranteed that millions of more people are going to learn about narcissistic personality disorder and malignant narcissism!"

In Tuesday's interview, Conway said his tweets questioning the president's mental health were aimed in part at avoiding conflicts with his wife. "The mendacity, the incompetence, it's just maddening to watch".

"It's also "so I don't end up screaming at" his wife about it", he added.
