Trump escalates feud with Conway’s husband
WASHINGTON –President Trump on Wednesday escalated his feud with the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, calling him a “wack job” and “husband from hell” who is hurting his wife and family.
Trump’s broadside against George Conway, a conservative lawyer and frequent critic of the president, began early Wednesday on Twitter as Trump responded for a second day in a row to Conway’s suggestions that his mental health is deteriorating.
“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,” Trump wrote.
Speaking to reporters Wednesday afternoon, Trump said George Conway is a “wack job,” adding: “Kellyanne is a wonderful woman. He’s doing a tremendous disservice to a wife and family.”
George Conway responded later to Trump’s morning tweet: “You. Are. Nuts.”
Kellyanne Conway defended Trump during an interview with Politico on Wednesday, calling him a “counterpuncher.”
