After serving as campaign manager for the final stretch of the 2016 election, Kellyanne Conway transitioned to her current role as a senior aide to President Donald Trump, where she has served admirably as a loyal defender and supporter of the president.
However, the same cannot be said of Kellyanne’s husband, George Conway, who has long been an outspoken and persistent critic of Trump. And now, President Trump is firing back.
“Husband from hell”
Following several days of sniping back and forth, President Trump unloaded on George Conway on Wednesday morning with a tweet that referred to him as a “husband from hell” and “loser” who is simply “jealous” of his wife’s success in the White House.
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!

That tweet was the culmination of a mini-feud within the larger turmoil that popped up on Monday, when Mr. Conway — in response to the president’s many tweets over the weekend — tweeted out screenshots of the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders handbook, specifically the pages on Antisocial and Narcissistic Personality Disorders.
He followed that with a tweet in response to prominent “NeverTrumper” Bill Kristol agreeing that voters, the media, and Trump’s cabinet should all carefully consider the president’s “mental condition and psychological state” ahead of the 2020 election.
Agree with this, but would add that *all* Americans should be thinking seriously *now* about Trump’s mental condition and psychological state, including and especially the media, Congress—and the Vice President and Cabinet. https://t.co/OoxgLJpltE

“A total loser” who wants to scream at his wife
Those tweets garnered a response from Brad Parscale, Trump’s 2020 campaign manager. He retorted:
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!

The president shared that tweet, and added: “A total loser!”
Afterward, George Conway was interviewed by The Washington Post, where he attempted to pick apart Parscale and the president by countering the claims in Parscale’s tweet.
“The tweeting is just the way to get it out of the way, so I can get it off my chest and move on with my life that day. That’s basically it,” George Conway said on Monday. “Frankly, it’s so I don’t end up screaming at her about it.”
Which brings us back full circle to Trump’s Wednesday morning tweet calling Conway the “husband from hell.” It’s hard not to agree.
My spouse and i have been quite lucky Chris could round up his preliminary research while using the precious recommendations he came across out of your web page. It’s not at all simplistic just to always be offering tactics that many people today have been trying to sell. Therefore we recognize we now have you to thank for this. The main explanations you’ve made, the straightforward web site menu, the friendships you can help to foster – it’s all terrific, and it’s really making our son and our family imagine that the matter is amusing, which is extremely important. Thanks for the whole thing!
Greetings from Florida! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check out your site on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the knowledge you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, amazing site!
Hi there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.
Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My site addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!
Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back.
Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for rookie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

Superb blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused .. Any tips? Thank you!
You made some good points there. I looked on the internet for the subject matter and found most people will consent with your website.
Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!
